How To Throw a Kid’s Superhero Theme Party!



By Colleen A Butler

Superhero Party Theme Ideas

How to throw a superhero party for kids

  • There are very popular superheros and more obscure ones – you are spoiled for choice – (you can even invent a superhero of your own!)
  • The focus of the party can be to “right some wrong” or to train at the “Superhero Academy“.
  • When the children arrive they can be set a “mission”.
  • A fun way to play it is to have the child pick out there own superpower and have them tell you all about it, (you could even video tape it… kids do say some funny things and their imaginations are a wonder to behold).

Send out Superhero Invitations with a poem:

How to throw a superhero party for kids“Superman or Spiderman…

or are you a Captain America fan?

Batman, Robin or X-Man?

It’s a Superhero party – Come if you can!”

One fancy way to do the invites is to print the invite on acetate and tape that over a dollar store flashlight so that they can turn the light on and project the message on to the wall.

Have them RSVP to: ” Supermom / Superdad “

Superhero Party Decorations


DIY Superhero Party Decorations

  • Incorporate comics into your design, you can trace certain comic excerpts to poster board for vibrant decorations.

  • Cut the heads out of some old comics and substitute pictures of your child’s head (tape it to the back side of the comic and post it on the wall (easy to do with photo shop but can be done with scissors and tape.
  • Hang the action heroes that your child has from the ceiling.
  • Make a fake newspaper with a headline with your child as the hero, print it up ledger size (11×17) or bigger (blueprint size).
  • Break out the musical score from a superhero movie (like Superman).
  • Make bunting (a series of cut triangles attached to a string) out of brightly colored papers (that match the superhero of choice or out of comics that have been color photocopied on to office paper.
  • The decorations will be determined by the type of superhero party that you are having. Some kids can be very particular about their loyalty to certain superheros. We know a boy that loves Spiderman but doesn’t care for Superman. The most popular superheros would probably be Superman, Spiderman, and Batman.
  • For Superman try a phone booth (made with an appliance box)
  • For Spiderman a large web (made of ribbon/string/streamers). Make the radiating “spokes” of the web first and then weave the circular bits starting from the centre and wrapping around each spoke as you work your way to the edges.
  • Put signs up: “No villains/Doc Ocs/Green Goblins not allowed”.
  • Stick up signs with starburst shapes with “action words” on them: POW!, ZAP!, ZOWIE! BLAM!.
  • Buy Bat-related item at the post-Halloween discount sales.

Superhero Outfits


  • Ask your guests to come dressed in solid bright colours: red,yellow,orange,green,blue and violet.
  • After they arrive children can be “super-hero-ified” by adding “capes” (fashioned out of pieces of fabric/thin towels), and eye masks (can be made out of cardboard)
  • Cut out some foam symbols and stick/tape/pin it to their chests for a very effective superhero outfit.
  • Headbands and Belts can be made out of duct tape if you are crafty.
  • Get out the face paints and do face painting

Superhero Party Games and Activities


  • Pepper your speech with “Holy_________Batman!” (Holy Pinata Batman!… Holy Chocolate cake Batman! )
  • Play “Pass the Kryptonite”while playing the theme from Superman and whomever is holding the kryptonite is gone.
  • Have the children use plastic “sticky hands” to try to retrieve special items.
  • Give them silly string and watch them go wild (make sure you have your camera handy).

Give them tests to prove their superhero-worthiness:

  • Test their minds: Have How to throw a superhero party for kidsthem answer the Riddler’s questions, (maybe in order to recover some stolen item in a “treasure hunt” scenario). Do a memory test (show them a series of items and then secretly remove one and have them guess.)
  • Test their “brute strength”: Breaking things with their bare hands (styrofoam meat trays), breaking balloons with their bare hands (can be quite difficult).
  • Test their accuracy: Throwing frisbees, catching ping-pong balls, breaking balloons with a dart, throwing bean bags at a target.
  • Also try obstacle courses and relay races.
  • Interview the Superheros about their special abilities and videotape them (it’s even funnier to watch years later!)
  • One activity we’ve seen on the internet (via Steve Spangler) is to have the child stand in the centre of a wading pool filled with a bubble solution. You take a hula hoop that is submerged in the pool and pull the resulting bubble upward thereby encasing the child in a giant bubble and then snap a picture at the moment that the child is within the bubble walls… great fun!

Superhero Party Food


  • “Mr Freeze” punch (you can fill washed latex gloves with water and freeze for crazy wild ice hands to float in the punchbowl).
  • Jello is superhero brightly coloured and fun to eat… if you layer the bright jello colours one at a time it can look great (just make sure that the layer is fully set before you add the next layer). cut into squares or put them into clear glasses (plastic ones if the children are young).
  • Give them carrots and talk about vitamin A and laser vision (it is a fact that Vitamin A is good for your eyes!)
  • Cut out sandwiches in the shape of star bursts or diamonds or bats (depends on the superhero).
  • Try to get them to eat some spinach (tell them about it’s magical vitamin-rich powers!)
