Superhero Week for Kids

We have had an EPIC Superhero Week for Kids at our house!

Not only did we celebrate birthdays with the best superhero party for kids ever, but we also did a superhero themed week of homeschooling.

Our superhero activities for kids were so much fun leading up to the excitement of our superhero party.

It still amazes me how adding a fun theme like superheroes to learning tasks, motivates kids to learn in ways they otherwise wouldn't.

Check out all that we've done!

Superhero Party for Kids

Our superheroes party was a combined birthday party for all four kids. When they were younger, we found this to be so much simpler than hosting four different parties throughout the year.

Here are all of the details of our Superhero Party for Kids!

Superhero Costumes

For party guests we made sure to have capes and masks available.

Superhero Party for Kids: Capes & Masks for Guests

The girls had a choice of pink or purple superhero capes.

The boys wore blue capes. 

I was super excited to find a bib cape for my nephew who is 6 months old.

Superhero Party Food & Drinks

For drinks I offered energy drinks, including smart water. 

After all super heroes need energy!

Superhero Party: Gatorade & Smart Water

For food I decided to go with a spread of super foods, along with a few cute little additions.  

We had:

  • Spinach, chicken, almond and strawberry salad
  • Hulk's grape weights
  • Greek yogurt
  • Guacamole with chips
  • Black bean, spinach, & feta cheese quesadillas
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Olives
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Thor's cheese hammers
  • Granola bars
  • Hummus & crackers

Superhero Party for Kids: Food Choices

There was cake too, actually four of them.  

Dinomite wanted chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.  

Bulldozer wanted a brownie chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream cake.  

Princess wanted a pink cake with pink frosting. 

Sunshine ended up with a carrot pineapple cake covered in cream cheese frosting and coconut.

The food was a huge success and absolutely delicious. 

I had originally wanted to make signs for all the dishes explaining what super power they would give you but my printer ran out of ink.  Oh well.

For most of the week, it looked like rain for the day of the party.  

I put on my creative cap and came up with a few indoor activities that would keep the kiddos entertained.  

I decided to put different ones all over the house, including the upstairs so it wouldn't become too chaotic.

Thor Sensory Bin

Superhero Party for Kids: Thor Sensory Bin

I created a Thor sensory bin for the little ones. 

I regret not having Loki, but oh well.  Sunshine loved the bin. So did Bulldozer.  

I just used cotton balls, stiff felt lightning bots, & a mini figure Thor.

Superhero Bracelets

Superhero Party for Kids: Superhero Bracelets

For the older girls that were coming, I set up a superhero bracelet making station.  

I loved the idea when I saw it at Activity Mom.  

She also has ideas for princess themed bracelets.  

The picture I printed out as an example of what to do, comes straight from her site.

Superhero City

(Excuse our worn out train table.  A while back, Bulldozer decided to pour water all over it to see what it would do.  Lol.)

In the boys room, I brought out all of our blocks and mini superhero figures.  

The boys built cities to their hearts content.  What bad guys knocked down, superheroes built back up.

Spiderman Sensory Bin

Superhero Party for Kids: Spiderman Sensory Bin

I decided to put another superhero sensory bin together, this one with a Spiderman theme.  

I was excited I had a bad guy to match too.  

It includes:

Bulldozer LOVES this bin!

Hulk's Skyscraper City

Superhero Party for Kids: Hulk's Skyscraper Smash

In Sunshine's room I set up a city/skyscraper for the kiddos to build and knock down like the Hulk. 

I even bought a pair of green gloves they could use. Lol.  

A big thanks goes out to grandparents for putting the work into this activity. 

I had no place to store the boxes let alone work on them at home.

In the end, the party ended up being outside.  

It rained all day, the day before, and early in the morning, but by afternoon, everything was dry and perfect for a party.  

That is, except our lawn, which hadn't been mowed because of the rain.  Oh well.  

We brought some activities outside and then went with my outdoor planning ideas.

To practice our Spiderman techniques we used white crepe paper to wrap up the bad guys and other superheroes who wanted to be wrapped. Lol.

Princess did a great job wrapping up her superhero friend.

Superhero Target Practice

Superhero Party for Kids: Target Practice

For target practice we used hula hoops and Frisbees.  

Grandparents helped again with the activity, holding the hoops for those who wanted to participate.

Then there was time to free play.  Some superheroes practiced their balance and flying skills.

In the picture above is Princess Superhero.  

She and Dinomite planned out her attire the day before while at bowling.  

I LOVE the whole ensemble-cowboy boots, princess dress, crown, silver mask, and pink cape!  So cute!

Other superheroes practiced flying down our ramp with their car!

Bad Guy Target Practice

Superhero Party for Kids: Bad Guy Target Practice

After everyone had warmed up, practiced their skills, and had their super food, we brought out the silly string to use on our bad guy targets all across the side fence.  

I had printed out a bad guy for each kiddo.  

The kiddos had a BLAST with the silly string. 

Had I known the container would only last for such a short while, I probably would have purchased more. (They were only $1 at the $1 store.)

Bulldozer loved being helped by his Grandpa!

The party went extremely well for the kiddos!

Heroes and Villains Book

This is an adorable book about the heroes and villains in the Batman comic series.  

My kiddos aren't as familiar with these guys so I figured it would be fun for them to get to know them, especially after Princess was Batgirl for her party.

Cutting Practice with Superheroes

Superhero Activities for Kids: Cutting Practice with Superheroes

I've never used any of these cutting sheets, so I figured I'd give it a try. 

To my surprise, Dinomite kind of freaked out about them, in that they were different and he was unsure if he could do it.  

I'll definitely be putting some more on the shelf to help him in weeks to come.

Batman's Cave

Superheroes Activity for Kids: Batman Playdough Activity

The kiddos will make caves out of play dough for the bats.  

They've also had fun making bat imprints etc.
