We are huge super hero fans in our house. That is something that I always loved growing up (yeah I’m nerdy like that) and that is something that I want to enjoy with my kids. Luckily for me, I have 4 boys and 1 girl, so it’s super easy to get them to enjoy them too! We all love The Avengers in our house, so much that a couple years ago that was our Halloween costume. Everyone is getting super excited to see all The Avengers stuff popping up in stores getting ready for the big new movie: MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Walmart and MARVEL have come up with a new Super Heroes Assemble App to make it fun and exciting for everyone!
This is the new app screen. You can download onto your phone from iTunes or Google play store. Whenever you scan a picture, you get to unlock something. Sometimes it shows you more information about the characters or you can see a 360 experience about a character, it’s really cool! Some of them unlock an image of Hawkeye or Black Widow that stays on your screen so when you take a picture, it looks like they are standing next to your kids, it’s pretty awesome!
There are lots of different foods that now have The Avengers on the packaging. The images on them can be scanned to unlock the content. There are also Kellogg’s fruit snacks that have the Avengers on it too.
This is how the app works. You push the discover button and then look at the characters that you want to unlock. Once you click on the character, the camera will pull up with a image that you have to scan, like this picture of the Cheez-It box.
You match up the image with your camera and then you have unlocked the character! This one is for Iron Man!
You can also do it through Walmart’s website. You just click on the image that says “unlock more epic content” and that will bring you to several different pictures.
Just scan the picture and unlock the fun!
I thought that this would be a really fun idea to do with my kids as we are shopping at Walmart. So I made a fun scavenger hunt printable so the kids can have something to do and look for while we are shopping. Whenever we see a display like this, I’ll let them unlock the character. The kids loved it! They were so excited to find another display. I also thought that it would be fun to just have them look for the characters in the toys or on the foods. Whenever they see Iron Man or Captain America on the box or bag of food, they can check it off on their paper. It’s a great way to keep them entertained so they can screaming or complaining the whole time you are shopping :).
As we were shopping at Walmart I saw that they had a bunch of Doritos with The Avengers on them, so I thought that they would be a great thing to grab and have in the pantry. Boy was I right! Because I decided to make up a Doritos taco salad for dinner one night and it was ah-maz-ing!
This is what you’ll need for the Doritos Taco Salad:
The Avengers Doritos- any flavor. Nacho Cheese and Cool Ranch is what we choose
1/2-1 pound of hamburger, browned
Taco seasoning- use about 1/2 of the regular amount
I browned the hamburger and added the water and taco seasoning (follow the instructions on the package for amounts) and then cut up all the different toppings.
I put the Doritos on bottom and then put the other toppings on top.
I paired it with a Thor Dr. Pepper 10 and it made for an awesome dinner! Seriously, it was so good and so easy to make. It took about 20 minutes to make it and it was a great and easy meal for my family. Plus my kids LOVED that they were surrounded by The Avengers.
Does your family love The Avengers? If they do, then you should download the new Super Heroes Assemble App, it’s free and fun to use!
Now I have to know, who is your favorite character in The Avengers? Mine is Captain America, I love that he is genuinely a good guy, plus he’s pretty easy on the eyes :).
