Santa Chex is super easy!  The best part is seeing the kids eyes when they see the Santa hats.  I am thinking of just how I am going to do this with carrots for Easter.

You can add or skip any item is kind of a whatever goes thing.

Needed:

Rice Chex

Pretzels

Bugles

M&M’s

White and Red Candy Melts

Take bugles and dip in red candy melt according to directions on package.  After they harden dip the tip and base in white.  (its important not to add finished hats and M&Ms to the mix until the very end after its hard)

Next in a large bowl put pretzels and Chex

Using one bag of melted white candy melt poor over Pretzels and Chex and mix well.  Let cool

Place M&Ms and Candy Hats back into the mix.

Super Hero Birthday Party

Posted on

My 5 year old son wanted a Super Hero party this year. He requested lots of games and a huge Avengers cake. So I began collecting his toys to see what we had and began shopping.

SNACKS

This year we kept it simple serving just a few little snacks and drinks.

We had Wonder Woman’s lemon Twister, Spiderman cotton candy webs, and Kryptonite rock candy.

We also had store bought ice cream cups.  I placed them in cupcake wrappers and picks they seem so much more festive.

Ducked tape bottle water is always a fun and easy addition to our parties.

Comic wrapped juice boxes and green hulk punch along with coffee were our beverages.   My son was so happy with his cake and the Hulk level looked so cool with the hair.

Toys, Balloons, along with a 30′ back drop were just a few of the little touches that made everything come together.  A few of my favorite things however were the Comic banner and W that were super simple to make.  Here is a link to how I made the W. https://danielleyarian.wordpress.com/2014/01/07/spiderman-comic-letter-craft/

GAMES

The games are always the fun part!

Our games were kind of a boot camp to get the kids ready to save the world!

First they knocked down walls!

Then we used our Hulk hands to bust through our individual piñatas.  When my son requested a piñata I instantly said no someone always ends up in tears.  But then thought why can’t they each have their own.  I also thought this would be a great goodie bag.

The boys had Superman ones and the girls had Wonder women.

Then they defended themselves from Spiderman’s webs (aka silly string)

We played Captain America target practice.

At the end the kids all got to see if they were as strong as the man of steel by bending a tire iron.

GOODIE BAGS

Everyone was sent home with a little goodie bag.

The bags included candy, coloring packs, stickers, squinkies, and super ducks for the little ones.
