Bring your favorite DC Super Heroes to your own home!
DC launched DC Kids Camp today, a fun new program to help parents engage kids at home. Join DC middle-grade authors and artists Meg Cabot, Agnes Garbowska, Shannon Hale, Dean Hale, Minh Lê, Michael Northrop, Ridley Pearson, Kirk Scroggs, and Gene Luen Yang, and others in this at-home activity program.
Parents can tune in Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. PT to DC Kids social channels on Twitter and Instagram to download kid-friendly, superhero-themed activities and previews of past and upcoming DC middle-grade graphic novels to enjoy at home. The DC Kids social channels will also feature entertaining videos from all-star authors and artists for parents and kids to watch together.
Kids will learn how to draw their favorite DC Super Heroes, gain inspiration and skills to make their own comics, and unlock their creativity with fun, off-the-wall how-to videos like draw-alongs with Agnes Garbowska ("DC Super Hero Girls"), origami tutorials with Gene Luen Yang ("Superman Smashes the Klan"), make-your-own Green Lantern ring demonstrations with Minh Lê ("Green Lantern: Legacy"), and many more captivating activities!
