Going to sleep the night before you knew once you saw the crack of dawn the next morning, your favorite cartoons were all waiting for you to tune in to your heart’s delight – or at least until noon when they all called it quits until next weekend.
Unfortunately, on-demand cartoons have changed that. Now kids are used to having cartoons whenever and wherever they like. While as a parent it makes things convenient, I do feel like something special about my childhood has been robbed from my children.
However, this last Saturday, we created our own Saturday morning tradition with a “Super-Hero Saturday” watching Vortexx on The CW.
Super heroes like Flash, Superman, Spiderman, and The Green Lantern reign supreme when you have a five-year-old, so the Saban Brand’s Vortexx lineup with Justice League Unlimited and The Spectacular Spider-Man made for a perfect backdrop for our fun. But we decided to go to the next level!
We made an occasion for the whole family! With a Super-hero breakfast party complete with crafts, costumes and a special super-hero themed menu!

As Justice League came on, my son sported his Batman pajamas while he created a matching mask (template attached) and arm shields (made with toilet paper rolls)! Meanwhile, I made breakfast – a “Green Lantern” cinnamon roll made with green sprinkles and a Flash Juice (see the recipe below.)
