WKF Super Kids Toolkit!

CALLING ALL SUPER HEROES! 
Download full toolkit here and all print files here

Whole Kids Foundation depends on donations from individuals and companies to do the good work we do. Any chance you have to turn your event into a fund raiser for Whole Kids Foundation helps further our mission! Think about ways you can charge reasonable fees for parts of your event ($5 for a photo from your Super Veggies photo booth, for example) ... every penny counts! 

This fall we are focused on kids making super choices about the foods they eat, that’s what makes them Super Kids! In our world, chefs and gardeners are the real Super Heroes, and this is the spirit we want to bring to this Super Hero program.

We hope this toolkit provides some ideas, tools and easy-to-execute event ideas for your store.

STEP 2: Separate t-shirt back and front and lay flat. Cut a curved line following the collar of the t-shirt.
STEP 3: Cut off one sleeve, this will be the mask. With sleeve folded, cut one circle through both layers to create holes for the eyes. You may need to try it on to figure out where the holes go for proper Super Hero vision! Trim mask to desired shape.
