Superhero Party - Part 1 ~

Entertaining | Kids Party Inspiration

My kiddos Superhero party was a hit! They had so much fun. 


As each hero arrived, they got suited up in their own personalized disguises. 

I created the design in the Silhouette layout program, it was super easy! And I simply used the heat transfer paper I had on hand. I made the masks with felt (I downloaded the mask template from here) and sewed on an elastic band. Although the sewing of the capes was a bit challenging, I absolutely love how they turned out.

I even made one for Mom and Dad.


When they were all duded up, Super Diesel and Super Fia led a race around the city...aka an obstacle course around our playroom.

With a book exchange at the end...this was such a great substitute to traditional gifts. Everyone came with a book and everyone left with a book. It allowed the party to be less about stuff and more about having fun with friends.

Then it was onto "make your own superhero"!


I picked up the boy/girl cardboard cut-outs from Michaels and simply double stick taped on a cape and mask. It was super fun to see all of the decorated heroes...plus to was nice to get them calmed down after the obstacle course.

Then a little bingo...what party is complete without bingo? I personalized the bingo boards and used fruit snacks for the markers. And yes, everyone was a winner because they all got to eat up the snacks at the end!

Tomorrow I will show you the party decorations, this was a fun theme to decorate...

You did such a great job with this, Chelsea! I cannot believe you made all the capes and masks ~ boy, you are good! I think we need to see a picture of you in yours though. : ) Love the idea of a book exchange in lieu of gifts.

I am definitely going to snag your book exchange idea. we usually just say no gifts please but people always bring them anyways. It looks like it was a "super" party, good job supermom!

What an adorable party! It looks like they all had a blast. The superhero bingo is a great idea, though I wonder how many times you had to refill their gumdrop markers!! Yum!
Thanks for sharing,

I love your idea for decorating a superhero. I really like to have a crafty component for my parties and this one was PERFECT!!!

The kids at my son's party designed a super hero scene. But your concept was my inspiration.

I have a post about that and the other activities we did for his superhero training camp here. I also provided a link back to your site. Thanks again!
