First off, I want to make sure you know that I can take ZERO credit for the awesome ideas that came together at this party. The party was planned for and crafted by my super talented (and blogless) co-worker, Bailey:
The party was held in her in-law's backyard. When we first arrived, we were greeted by a table full of super hero crowns and masks so the kids could dress the part to be their super selves.
We played four different games. The thing that is genius about these isn't just that the kids LOVED them but that they were easilly adapted for kids of all ages to play together. This party had kids ranging from 2-10 and they all loved the games and played well together.
Game #1: Super Ring Toss
Game #2: Kryptonite Pick Up
Game #3: Super Villain Moving Piñata
Game #4: Superhero Ice Rescue
Of course when the kids were done rescuing the superheroes the adults took over and had a water bottle fight!
There was a variety of superhero fuel (AKA snacks) set up on the table. Bailey used red and blue plates and buckets from the dollar store to hold snacks. Also check out those fabulous red white and blue strawberries that were dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with blue sugar!
The cake table also served as the gift table and a place for some more favors.
Left: Lollipops were made "super" by taping superhero logos onto the wrappers and then giving them little "capes" by wrapping felt strips around upside-down small paper cups. There were also superhero taffy and superhero pez dispensers
Right: A tower of superhero cakes topped with a Captain America pez dispenser. Bailey used fondant to make star badges and to spell out the birthday boy's name at the top of the tower. The cupcakes were red, white and blue. My favorite ones had blueberries in the bottom.
You think the birthday boy liked it?
Thanks for letting me show off this great party. Hopefully you found something to inspire your future Avengers or Superhero celebrations.
