 CULLMAN, Ala. Superheroes took over the Cullman County Child Development Center Friday as Batman, Spiderman, Thor and Captain America stopped by to visit with some of their mightiest fans. Many of the students wore masks, t-shirts, capes or costumes of their favorite superheroes. Students also had the opportunity to get a close look at Batman’s awesome truck! 

 Superhero Day is part of the Child Development Center’s Fabulous Fun Friday events. Earlier in the day, superheroes from Temple Baptist Church came to visit with the children. In the afternoon, The Superheroes of Cullman County stopped by the school. They posed for pictures with the children and gave them pointers on how to shoot webs and fight crime.  

 There was no shortage of hugs for the superheroes, and Spiderman appeared to be the most popular Friday afternoon. Batman and Captain America still received plenty of love from their young admirers. Batman said, “It never gets old-just seeing the smile on the kids’ faces.” Spiderman added, “Especially these kids.”  

 Each Friday the children participate in a different themed day. Last week was camping week and the children had a great time while learning important life skills. When the children return from spring break, they will have a landscaping day and a tailgating day. CCCDC Principal Chris Chambers explained, “The teachers have different ideas for different classrooms. That way, they can make it age appropriate for the littles versus the bigs. They don’t know that they are learning. On camping day, they learned about different foods and how to preserve things. They learned to shelter and if you get lost, what you can do. How to open a can. How to use a can opener so if you don’t have any power or you are out camping.”  

 The Superheroes of Cullman County are always looking for other superheroes to join in on the fun. If you are interested in using your superpowers to put smiles on the faces of others, contact Chuck Brown on Facebook.
