What little kid doesn’t go through a superhero phase?
My son is a fan of all the hero’s… Power Rangers, Marvel, D.C… This superhero birthday party was a fun way to celebrate turning five, and it was pretty easy to pull off.
This party kicked off almost five years ago… We were stationed in Iwakuni, Japan and lived in a tower that had an indoor playground room for kids that could be reserved for parties. Since we were living overseas, most of the decor was ordered from Amazon or Party City. It was easy to reserve this room and just decorate the space with superhero signs, a cute themed table cover and then to focus on the treats table.
To make the comic-strip snacks, I printed off a few black/white comics from the internet and taped it into a cone shape; then poured a handful of Cheetos or popcorn into each cone. This was a cute way to make some snacks easily accessible to the kids. All the other treats were tagged with cute names like ‘Aquaman fishes’ for goldfish or ‘Laser vision” for sliced carrots.
For a superhero touch, I recommend purchasing a few packages of superhero masks for the kids to wear, or encourage them to wear their favorite superhero shirts or capes that they may have at home.
My Extra Mom Verdict? Easy! I spent less than an hour on the comic-strip cones, and then the rest of my time was spent on cutting up fresh fruit and veggies for the super-snacks. Superhero parties are a common theme, and there’s so much out there to purchase, making this party easy to decorate and even easier to execute in the indoor playground room. Those five year olds had a great time being heroes that day.
