Growing up is hard. It really is. There’s learning to walk and speak at a really young age, then a bit older you worry about wearing the right fashion and making friends. Some kids also have certain issues that can make them feel different or embarrassed. Like enuresis. But kids are also superheroes, and deserve a cape. Make their own with our Easy T-Shirt Cape Tutorial.

Enuresis, otherwise known as bed-wetting, is a very common occurrence among children. In fact, up to 10% of kids still wet the bed at age 7. While my kids no longer have this problem, and only suffered a brief period when they did, I know the confusion and embarrassment it can cause. It’s an uncomfortable situation. But it doesn’t need to be. Pampers UnderJams hopes to give children back their confidence in this tough time as well as create an easy solution to tackle bedwetting problems.

Available at Walmart, Pampers UnderJams features night wear leakage protection with a NightLock ultra-absorbent core. They are made with ComfortWear, a quiet, cloth-like material for privacy as well as a low waist so only your child knows they are wearing them!

Because kids are superheroes, there’s no need to be embarrassed. Whether you’re a superhero over autism, like my Buzz, a superhero over a chronic disease, such as Jedi, or a superhero over bed-wetting like us and many kids out there.

And every superhero needs a cape!

This t-shirt cape tutorial takes only minutes to make and are a great accessory for every superhero in your life.

DIY Superhero T-Shirt Cape Tutorial

Supplies needed:

  • old t-shirts
  • red and yellow acrylic paints
  • scissors
  • tape

Grab a couple old t-shirts and cut off the front and sleeves, leaving only the back and neck.

Gather a cape design stencil. A simple star and lightning bolt work well. Tape the stencil onto your t-shirt. You’ll also need to make sure to hold it in place.

Position a piece of paper or cardboard under where your design will be on your cape and begin rubbing in a thin layer of paint until you get the desired color.

  6. These are very cute and would be a great craft for a superhero themed birthday party. Also another way to decorate them would be to use permanent markers.
