Celebrate Your Son or Daughters Birthday With a Superhero Party
If your son or daughter is constantly trying to save the day while wearing a cape fashioned from one of his blankets, a superhero birthday party may be the perfect gift. This theme makes for a thrilling afternoon for your little boy or girl and their closest circle of friends. It’s easy to plan an entertaining few hours without spending too much money and weeks of time on projects. Plan out your event by sending superhero birthday invitations a few weeks in advance, so you can get an accurate count of guests.
Assemble Your Team
The first step of a superhero party is to choose the team of heroes that your son or daughter and their friends will most look forward to celebrating with. Some kids are content with a generic set of superheroes, while other children may expect specific characters to be part of the party. If your son or daughter is obsessed with one or two heroes, try incorporating those characters’ symbols and colors throughout the décor and birthday invitations. Red and blue work great for Superman, Spiderman or Captain America. Black and yellow are best paired with a Batman party. Red and gold are the signature colors of Ironman. Some kids opt for a rainbow of colors and an entire team of Avengers to customize their birthday celebration.
Show Off Your Super Powers
Another big part of a superhero party has to do with games. Young children who love superheroes would greatly enjoy plenty of fun party games that can have them practicing their super powers. You could have your crew smashing things like the Hulk or climbing over obstacles like Spiderman. One easy and inexpensive activity is to have your party guests make their own superhero mask with construction paper, glue and markers. Keep track of everyone’s masterpiece with stickers you personalize with each guest’s name. When parents come back for pick up, send each kid home with a smile and a fun favor bag filled with superhero treats.
