Party Recap

Invitation:
"Holy Cake and Ice Cream Batman, William's turning 7 and the Joker has just stolen his birthday cake. Come dressed as your favorite superhero or villain and help Batman put an end to the Joker's dastardly plan" add Bat Date, Bat Time and Bat Cave Address
Entrance Craft:
Cut felt bats, add name to each, safety pin to each child (will use later 4 game)
Paint Batman face painting- Russ
Play 1970s Batman episode or cartoon from YouTube

Decor:
BAT CAVE - Use crepe streamers and cut out bats at door way with “SECRET Bat Cave Entrance” sign
Gothem City Table scape: Use Russ’ mini’ GOTHIC towers
Use Batman action figures to help decorate the table.
For the cups I drew and cut out my version of the "bat" symbol.  I glued it onto an oval piece of yellow construction paper and outlined the oval with a black pen.  Then, I taped it onto the cup using double sticky tape.  As for the napkins I scalloped the edges and put them in the cup to represent bats. 
SpotLight: I created a bat symbol spotlight using a Pringles can.  I copied comics off the internet from http://www.wickipedia.com/ and glued them onto the can using a glue stick.  I taped a bat image to the inside of the lid and placed a bright flashlight inside the can.  Because the flashlight was so bright and my ceilings are not very high the symbol did appear on the ceiling.  It would have been super fun to have multiple cans and turn off the lights during the birthday dinner. 

Games:
Batman-Batman joker (Duck duck goose)
Penquin shuffle (3 teams - 5 kids each) balloons between the legs they had to run to the batcave. The team member could run until the previous person was through the cave
Mr Freeze dance (Freeze tag using the batman theme song)
Batarang target practice (make Joker bullseye with villains on it)
