Superhero {Birthday} Bash

Pin It
My little guy turned 4 in April.  FOUR!

I cannot believe how fast time goes by.  

He was dead-set on having a superhero party, and I was happy to oblige!

Did you know Costco will print up large posters like this?  It's cheap too!

Getting ready to party.....

We had fairly simple food, some fun games, and great goodies to take home. 


I decided to turn this party into a "Superhero Academy".  Each attendee had to earn their cape and mask-what every superhero needs!

To earn their cape, they played-
How strong are you?

First up, knock over a building!!  As you can see, I found a very large cardboard box, and worked a little magic with spray paint.  They loved it!

Next, they had to punch down a brick wall (cardboard blocks) and shoot off a rocket!

Then, the real test came. 

Could they fight the villain?!

Fight the Villain

 The after picture is all I got!  My husband dressed up as a villain, and they had to defeat him by spraying him down with silly string.  The kiddos went crazy over this one!  WAY too enthusiastic about the silly string.

Now, the Graduates!  They all earned their cape and mask.

Next up, the birthday cake and food!

Love this shot of him!

He did it!

Party Food

After all the food, and graduating from superhero academy, we ended the day with the photo booth.  So much fun!

Guests went home with their cape and mask, and a superhero goody bag.

  5. Your husband is awesome for dressing up as the villain! It's something mine would do, too. It's great to see that they will play with their kids and understand that its okay to be silly. Usually, my hubby is the good guy because the boys want to be the bad guys. :D

    We also had a Superhero Party this month. I wasn't as daring, and hosted it at McDonald's. I did make capes and masks for part of the take home bags and for something extra for everyone to play with during party downtime.
