Marvel Easter Party Ideas
I was browsing store aisles for Easter basket ideas for Sam this week. I’m loving all of the spring colors and fresh looks that stores are featuring now! In the past, I’ve done cuddly plush animals, quirky wind-up toys and a bit of candy. I know Sam will still like the treats but I don’t think I can get away with sweet spring colors and cute little bunnies anymore. At six years old, my boy is still my little guy but stuffed animals are no longer objects of desire: “They’re for babies, Mom”. Ha! Doesn’t he know he’ll always be my baby? But I know it’s time to honor his more “mature” preferences.
It got me to thinking that even though boys Sam’s age might think typical pastel Easter bunnies and chicks are things of the past, they still like traditions like hunting Easter eggs. And eating chocolates. And secretly? They still like Easter baskets! I think I came up with some MARVEL-ous new ideas that Sam will approve of!
I found a ©2016 MARVEL Captain America action figure to put in Sam’s basket that I’m sure he’ll think is pretty cool. The Captain is currently saving the world along with Iron Man, Black Widow and Thor in Walmart’s seasonal aisle. They have all sorts of potentials for Easter basket fillers in that section—they even carry the baskets. Superhero wannabes would love the themed basket I chose. It can be a great catch-all in a boy’s room after the holiday, too.
Since most kids of all ages love dying and hunting for Easter eggs, I think something like the Avengers Egg Dye Kit will hold a guy’s interest because of the themed wrappits and tons of themed stickers.
Other ideas for an older boy’s basket:
- Glider plane
- Activity books
- Stationery set
- Novelty toys
- ©2016 MARVEL Themed 3D Modeled Easter Eggs
- Music cd’s
A note on the ©2016 MARVEL Themed 3D Modeled Easter Eggs—they are sure to be a hit! There’s the element of surprise when they’re opened and there are fun items inside, like stickers and tattoos, for keeping or trading. I bought one that looks like a mini Iron Man mask and another with Captain America’s star. I tucked a yo-yo in that one.
I don’t know how many more years Sam will want to hunt for eggs, but I’m certain he’s going to like the super Easter basket I hunted down this year!
