My 7 year old son, Charlie had a school trip last week visiting The Super Hero supply store in Brooklyn NY.

On arriving you see a strange shop front.

Inside are the funniest things to buy in the store or at their online shop.
I really wanted to get my friend a tin of Dark Matter for her birthday.

You can also buy , Secret identity kits, and weird cans of silly things.

Once inside it is the Headquarters for 826 NYC , a not-for-profit writing program for children age 6 - 18.
They encourage writing in all forms , comics, poetry, stories. It also offers free after school tutoring on a drop in basis and they also host class trips.( New York only)
I was truly blown away with the whole idea the Staff and unpaid volunteers, Amazing!!!!

Here is the book they had published.

The adventures of Pearl and Dinoman.

All the children came away with a published book that they all participated on from beginning to end. 

Check out the 826 NYC website for field trips for your school , workshops or drop- ins
