If your child is hooked on a super hero, this can be a perfect theme for a birthday party. The popularity of specific super heroes is often tied to recent movie releases and may include Avengers, Ninja Turtles, Transformers and more. Even old-time superheroes, such as Superman, Spiderman, and Batman, are well know by children thanks to TV show reruns and movie remakes. My kids love anything superhero, so I’ve had some practice throwing Super Hero Parties! Here are my top tips:
Throwing a superhero-themed party can be a lot of fun for kids and adults alike. I get everyone excited for the event by designing party invitations featuring a drawing or photo of my kid’s favourite superhero or superhero logo.
Alternatively, the Yombu Superhero themed digital invitation is easy to customise – just fill in all of your party details and download it for only $4.50. It is the easiest way to get your digital party invite sorted.
When it comes to decorating for a superhero party, the possibilities are endless. I love a little DIY and using drawings or photos of superheroes, superhero toys, streamers, and balloons in superhero colors. It’s always about creating an atmosphere that transports guests to a world of adventure and heroics. With the right decorations, you can turn any space into a superhero hideout.
To keep guests entertained, I sometimes design a superhero obstacle course, a detective game, or a treasure hunt. I find they also love a good ol’ balloon stomp or dodgeball. These activities get everyone moving and having fun. I’ve also made superhero masks or done face painting. Paper airplane making is also a great activity to engage kids in crafting. And to bring out the creative side in everyone, try forming superheroes and villains out of modelling clay.
Another fun and engaging activity is decorating a Super Hero mask I absolutely adore the Seedling decorate your own superhero felt masks which will keep the little guests occupied for about 30 minutes at the party.
No party is complete without food and drinks. I stick to the classics, because there’s a reason they’re classics! Sandwiches or pizza, a veggie tray, seedless grapes, and cola floats never go out of style. I’m not much of a baker but I have tried to decorate a cake with a superhero logo or cupcakes with superhero figures – or I head to a pro to help me out. These treats add to the overall superhero vibe of the party.
Hire a Superhero
If like me you aren’t the best at keeping the little ones engaged all party long and want to spend some time chatting with the other Mums at the party. I can highly recommend hiring an entertainer to assist with entertainment. To keep it in theme a Superhero character like Batman, Spiderman or Ironman to play some fun games with the kids is always a hit. Alternatively face-painting or a bouncy house (Depending on the space available) make for fun additions to any Birthday bash.
If you are fortunate enough to be located in one of the Cities Yombu operates in you can easily hire an entertainer or Character with them in just a couple of clicks.
Superhero Party Favors
I love sending guests home with a memento of the event. I’ve gifted each guest with a toy superhero, comic book, or flashlight. For a fun and simple alternative, I fill favor bags with stickers, whistles, small rubber balls, and silly putty. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s something that will remind guests of the fun they had at your superhero-themed party.
Batman and Superman are close competitors for the top superhero. Both are iconic comic book characters. We can’t say who is the best without starting another war, but let’s just say that Batman is a pretty good detective!
