Trending Themes for Kids’ Birthdays: Super Hero!
>>POW!<< >>BAM!<< >>ZAP!<<
For the third party in our series of Kids’ Birthdays, we bring you some SUPER ideas for a fun celebration! (We’ve also shared ideas for a Backyard Camping Party and for an Art Party).
When your heroes arrive to the scene, what better way to get the party started than to have a photo booth at the door? We love the idea of a city scene for the backdrop. Add an assortment of capes, masks, and speech bubbles based on your child’s favorite hero for props.
This backdrop at Tips from a Typical Mom Blog was made with a black plastic table cloth, some paper clouds and stars, and various boxes wrapped in black paper. They added some rectangles cut from yellow paper for windows. A dark blue table cloth for an evening sky would look great too.
So simple and SUPER at the same time!

These assorted masks available on Etsy would be cute in pictures!
(Store them with the kids’ dress-ups clothes to use for getting into character on non-party days.

If your guests are old enough for a craft, you could provide felt or craft foam and string or elastic for them to make their own masks using one of the patterns at First Palette or JustBunch. Everyone could then model them in front of the city scene for a fun keepsake. (speaking of the mask and the photo! Wouldn’t a picture of the guest and birthday boy or girl be a sweet addition to a thank you note?)
This cape was made from a t-shirt and requires NO sewing…just a pair of scissors. They even give instructions for how to create an iron on using your favorite hero’s logo.

There are some really creative ways to display the food for a SUPER party at Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss. We love how these drinks are stored in a bucket with a comic book style “POP” across the front. (They even decorated the ketchup and mustard bottles!)

Although these lollipops were designed as Valentines, they would be SUPER as a favor.

We love love love this colorful Justice League moonwalk, perfect for every hero celebration.

We also came across some FREE printables that would make your party >>POP!<<
Use these colorful printouts to decorate your food table, goody bags, or the photo booth area. Tape some clear string or fishing wire to the back of them and hang them from the ceiling. Print onto iron on paper to use to make a custom birthday shirt for the birthday boy or girl!
These would also be great on a T-Shirt (Mom, Dad, and Kid are included!) or print several of each letter for guests to color the letters of their name. Then they would be able to take their own SUPER name banner home after the party to hang in their room.
Hope we sparked some SUPER ideas to help you start planning your little Hero’s next birthday. Give us a call if you need to rent some tables, chairs, tents, concessions, or inflatables and we’ll help make sure it’s a memorable day for everyone!
