batman party theme

What do you do when your almost 4 year old requests a Batman themed party for his birthday? You start by Googling images of Batman themed parties to gather your ideas and then let then fun begin!! We started off with homemade invitations. We used free printables from this site.

You welcome all your Superfriends arriving to the party!

You have a Batman cake (made by your mom)!

You make a birthday banner using recycled comic strips for the letters.

You have food inspired by this Batman party. Our menu included: Penguin's Pizza, Robin's Raw Veggies, Catwoman's Claws, The Flash's Fruit, Superwoman's Pasta Salad, Mr. Freeze's Fruit Tea (for the superfriend's parents), Wonder Woman Water and Joker Juice.

You use your Batman toy for decorations.

You have a drink station for thirsty SuperFriends (thanks Deanna for letting us borrow your beverage dispenser).

You hang bats made from foam from your lights!

You create Gotham City! I had recycled a box and turned it into Gotham city, using black spray paint, a silver marker to outline the city, cut out windows and lined with recycled yellow tissue paper and then placed a small desk lamp behind to give the nighttime affect. My mom had covered Asher's present with large Batman symbols so I recycled one and used it above the city.

You give party favors! I again loved the ideas from this party and for the party favors I found yellow buckets (for the boys) and pink buckets (for the girls) and attached a bat symbol with modge podge and filled them with SuperHero Snacks (again, free printable from here).

I also made each child a customized cape and mask. The capes were made from felt and I used felt with adhesive for the letters on the back. Each child then had 4 stars they could use to decorate their cape.

This kids loved running around with their capes and masks as they did the SuperFriend training outside.
