When my son turned six he was all about his superheroes. In fact, it’s probably safe to say that he still is. Now a-days there are a ton of resources available since the Avengers came out. It hadn’t at the time but we still managed to have a lot of fun.
Birthday boy with the evil Dr. Doom. We used the same general idea for this decoration as we did for the Buzz in our Toy Story party accept this one was not 3D. I don’t currently have a photo but to decorate the walls I used an old Marvel Heroes Calendar. I cut out all the pictures of the superheroes and taped them on the walls in various locations. Hurray for recycling!
We of coarse invited all the kids to dress up as their favorite super heroes.
Dr. Doom made for an awesome photo opportunity.
This is one of my pre-cake class cakes. 🙂 I was shooting for themed layers which are a lot of fun, it tasted awesome too!
We also had themed cupcakes. These were so much fun to make and the kids would pick their favorites to eat. If you know what kids might be coming as in advance, it might be fun to make each child their own cupcake decorated to look like their chosen superhero.
These were a lot fun to make. They could also be a great activity for children to do at the party.
One of the fun games we found that the kids seemed to really enjoy was the spiderweb. The kids were given a skein of yarn and tossed it around and back and forth. Once they had entangled themselves thoroughly, they were told to find a way out.
The obstacle coarse was really fun to watch. You can get creative with these and make all kinds of fun things to do. We were very limited on space but the kids still really got into it.
First, we had them walk across the sand box which was filled with horrible, disgusting, and monstrously-sized…plastic bugs. Then they went down a slide around a bend through a dark tunnel (made of cardboard). Next they had to weave in and out of cones.
The possibilities are only as limited as your imagination and perhaps your time.
The cool thing about hero parties is that everyone can participate. You can do a little or you can do A LOT. We have a tendency to fall somewhere in the middle. A great way for adults (who don’t feel like being one of the kids) to dress up too it to grab a super hero t-shirt and “BAM” “POW” “WHOOSH!” you fit right in!
Happy Party! And keep on crafting!
