When she set out to plan an action-packed superhero-themed birthday party for her oldest son, Heather Schugar, of Diapered Daze and Knights, was surprised by the lack of non-violent birthday party activities available online. What’s a mom to do? You simply harness your superpowers and create your own! You’ll love Heather’s activity ideas as well as her budget-friendly supplies and tips for super snacks and treats.

Superheroes need a lot of energy to be super. Heather created a colorful food display with a variety of great snacks to help party guests “fuel up” for the challenges of the day. Superhero action figures flanked a yard sale frame that was transformed into a “superhero power-up station” sign where guests were encouraged to feast on snacks and treats. Food included Captain America cookies, homemade chocolate-covered pretzels, cones of popcorn, cupcakes baked in ice cream cones, veggies, personalized water, and juice bottles.

Using her own superb skills, Heather added custom festive touches. Those aren’t ordinary water bottles on the table; using yellow Duck Tape and photocopies of her son, Heather created personalized labels perfect for the party theme. We love how she used the comic section of the newspaper to make treat cones; economical and theme appropriate. Don’t worry, she added a wax paper liner to make them food safe!

Heather made a pleasing display piece for the cones by decorating a cardboard box and adding a decorative “pop!”, She also made her own color-coordinated chocolate pretzels in less than 15 minutes by dipping the pretzels into milk chocolate candy melts and adding colorful candy melt drizzles and sprinkles; perfect. To add some pizzazz to her ice cream cone cupcakes, she topped them off with little superhero medallions.

Now the superheroes could get their “boom, bam, and zap” on in some fun activities. When guests arrived there were superhero masks for each child to color. Having an activity or craft that can also serve as a party favor is a terrific idea. For this super party, Heather wanted an activity that would be fun for both boys and girls. She came up with the idea of “making your own superhero”. She purchased unstuffed frogs and white stuffed animal t-shirts which she dyed a cheery yellow. You’ll love how Heather customized each frog: she heat-pressed each guest’s name onto the shirt with heat-transfer vinyl and made capes with superhero logos on them. She added wristbands to each animal and made zany masks from crafter’s foam.

Heather created an activity station by laying colorful display boards on the floor. Here, the kids were able to decorate their masks and superhero t-shirts with fabric markers. We like the thoughtful design idea board she made for the kids in case they needed some inspiration to get started. Each child received a superhero-themed bag with all of the things they needed to build a Super Frog. There were some coloring sheets and a frog puppet inside too. Another clever activity was the photo booth station. All of the guests had fun posing and having their photos taken. They later received a copy of the picture along with a thank-you note; another gracious idea from a super-sounding mom!
