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.

Comic Book Room Art

When my son requested a Super Hero birthday party this year I knew just what had to be done!

The hardest part of this project was finding just the right comic book.  I found some at the dollar store but they were not very vibrant and did not have many images of Spiderman on them. I then went to a discount comic book store and found real books that had vibrant colors and thick glossy pages. The price was not bad either and my older son enjoyed reading it first.  The best part is that it will make a wonderful addition to my sons superhero room that is in the planning.

You need:

Basic wood letter

Comic Book

Modge Modge

Foam Brush

Paint Pen

 Knife

Painters Tape

First I painted the edges with a paint pen.  You can use any kind of paint or sharpie.  Paint pens are wonderful though you don’t need a brush and it dries very quickly.

Then I started placing the comic pages on the letter.  I moved them around until I had many Spiderman images on the letter.  This can take as long as you want.  If you want you could just place a whole page on and not be worried with where the images fall.  I on the other had took a little more time and tried to make as many Spiderman images as I could on the letter then centering the images so Spiderman’s head was not cut off.  I used the painters tape to attach them in place until I was ready to glue them down.

after I filled the whole letter I flipped it over on my cutting mat and cut the excess paper away.

The next step is to take the modge podge and put a thin layer on the wood.  Placing the image back in place.  After you run your foam brush with more modge podge right over the top.  It dries clear just make sure it does not go on to thick.  You then repeat several layers after each dries.  I did 3 coats on mine.

I think it turned out great and my older son is now requesting a Star Wars letter for his room.  I guess I will be heading back to the comic book store real soon.
