We celebrated my son turning 4 with a Superhero party!! Him and his friends are really into the Avengers right now, but I decided to add a couple other superheroes to the mix.
We had such a great time! All the kids wore their favorite superhero costumes and we even had an obstacle course in the backyard.
I was very excited to get this party started. I had been looking through Pinterest for ideas and found a lot of great inspiration out there. I was proud of some of the ideas I even came up with myself.
Superhero Display Table
I wanted the display table to be the first thing everyone saw when they walk in the door. I was really excited with how my birthday boy’s cake turned out.
Here’s some of the ideas I did for the display table:
- Backdrop: I found some superhero wrapping paper and thought it would work perfect for a backdrop. We added some red for the boarder.
- Cake Topper: I cut out my first shape then pasted it to a piece of cardstock. I layered it with another color. I found the “POP” “BOOM” and “POW” printable online and the best part…they were free!
- Cupcake Toppers: I put my stickers on cardstock then cut them out. I hot glued my stickers onto lollipop sticks. A perfect cupcake topper!!
- Topper for Cupcake Display: I layered my stickers on a piece of cardstock and cut out my shape. I added a couple other colors to the layers.
- Super Sign: My hubby made this awesome “Super Noah” sign for the party (we’ll have printable link up soon).
- Superhero Pops: I found the idea and free printable for my Superhero pops on Zakka Like. I just LOVE finding a free printable for my parties.
Since it’s a superhero party I wanted to have some healthy options for the kids. I thought adding some Hulks to the table would finish it off. The Hulk is all about healthy eating!!
I wanted each table to be a specific superhero. I got all my tablecloths at the Dollar Tree and Googled the images.
Side Note: If you like DIY and your little one loves superheroes, why not help ’em with an easy-to make superhero costume craft? No sewing required!
Danger Room: Obstacle Course
I found the ideas for the obstacle course on On My Side of The Room. The kids all had a great time with the obstacle course. I had a bouncy house setup and a ball pit too.
Here are some of the pictures I got of the kids running the course.
I wanted to share some of the crafts and ideas I did for the obstacle course:
- Danger Room: My husband made this sign for me. He said it was suppose to be the X-Men training simulator (I will have the printable up soon).
- Superhero Cuffs: I found the armbands at the Dollar Tree and added the star felt stickers on them. The kids got these when they went into the training center.
- Superhero Cityscape: I made the city out of diaper boxes. I spray painted them black and cut out gray cardstock for the windows.
Party Favor Station
What’s a party without favors for the kids to go home with? I found the buckets at Michaels and all the favors on clearance at Target. Each favor was less than $2.00 each, what a bargain!!
I have seen these “…Being a Brother…” signs all over the place. I gave my hubby the job of making our own for the party.
He did a great job making the Captain America inspired, “…being a brother is…better than…a superhero printable sign. I was very impressed!
Super Birthday Boy!
Everyone had a great time, especially the birthday boy. He loved having all his friends over in their costumes and playing superheroes. What little boy wouldn’t love that?
Mission complete! The superhero training was successful. The world will be a lot safer with these guys watching out for us.
If you need anymore information for the crafts don’t hesitate to ask. I can even make a few craft tutorials if needed :)
