Fourth birthday superhero party
As I’ve probably mentioned before, I love organising a party. My son doesn’t really have strong opinions on what the theme is (as long as purple features somewhere), so this year I went for a Superhero party.
We decided to have his party at home this year, so had very limited number of friends (as our house is small). I went for the “Pop Art” style for his invitations.
No superhero parties are complete without a superhero cape, so I made one for each of his guests. They were made out of fleece, so they wouldn’t fray, with a star sewn onto the back. Some superhero mask kits were bought for the kids to decorate, so they could complete their costume.
Games were the main element to this party. We were incredibly lucky with the weather and were able to use our garden. It is tiered and very steep, so I could set up different games at the top and bottom of the garden.
- Obstacle course: spacehopper, scooter, throwing a ball into a bucket and going through a hola hoop.
- Untying the adult: Two of the mums volunteered to be tied up with crepe paper, so they could be “rescued”.
- Lasers: the kids had to climb between the wool, without ringing the bells, to reach the sweets in the corner.
- Pass the superhero parcel.
- Xray box: the kids had to search through the boxes to find the sweets.
Food and cake
Vanilla cupcakes with popcorn on top and a small amount of popping candy. I found a selection of “Pop Art” style plates, cups, cupcake decorations and napkins to create the theme for the food. There were also some cookies to go in the party bags.
My son really enjoyed his party, even if he still doesn’t really have much of a clue who Superheroes actually are!
