For the invitation, I had a fun photo shoot with Super Carter on the front porch with a few of his favorite superhero items. At the time that was his Superman shirt, mask, and rain boots. It was a good look.
Invites were ordered from TinyPrints; I always really like their print quality.
Before the party, the entire family got superhero tattoos. We're hardcore.
I made the cake using cupcake wrappers & toppers from Amazon, along with colorful sprinkles. It was a hit.
Superhero photo booth props were from Amazon as well.
In addition to photo booth props, the kid station had blank superhero masks and colored pencils to entertain little ones before the party. Attendees also got superhero bracelets (you'll see them on the wrists of some of the littles below).
The tablescape had to be pretty simple since it was 95 degrees outside and we didn't want everything (or everyone) to melt. I still really like how it turned out!
After cake & snacks, all the kids completed a small superhero training course. Since most of the little ones were 3 years and under, we had to keep it pretty simple.The course included sliding, running through cones, jumping through hula hoops, climbing through a tunnel, and then lastly shooting the bad guys with silly string. It got pretty intense.
I loved watching my husband explain the course to the (not so) captive audience!
Carter chose the bad guys everyone would shoot: Syndrome (from The Incredibles), Lotso (from Toy Story 3), and Mr. Waternoose from Monster's Inc.
We ended the activities with an "evil" monkey piñata. I really wanted something more scary, but I kind of struck out in that department. In addition, he proved to be a bit too tough for the little ones to crack open, but fortunately some of the older attendees were able to help save the day!
