Summers are a busy time for us with Birthdays planned almost every weekend. This time it’s my nephew turn. Lucky for me, he wanted an Iron Man Birthday Party and to use all the same games and props from the Avengers party we hosted last weekend.
What People Ate
Since it was a drop-off party from 1 - 4 pm, munchies, popsicles, watermelon, fruit and veggies were served.
What People Drank
Water, pop and juice were served.
This time I decided to make the invitation on two sides and print all of the details. I also used an Iron Man image from the movie rather than from the popular T.V shows.
I created an Iron Man banner using a black with white striped pattern (hard to see in the photo) and added Iron Man images with Ethan’s name on the ends. We also added a few other little touches like balloons and pompoms. We used the stand-up characters like the Iron Man and Hawkeye from a few weeks ago at my son's Avenger Birthday Party.
I kept the black and white stripe, as well as the gold and burgundy colors for the cupcake toppers and wraps.The store-bought Iron Man cake worked perfectly with the theme.
Activities / Games
Captain America Disk Toss: We picked up a small tarp at the Dollar Store, cut 5 holes, and painted each hole a different color. We made with pieces of tissue paper to look like Captain America’s shield. I cut out the Captain America letters on my Silhouette and glued them around it. Each child took a turn throwing Avengers' Frisbee. The prize was the Frisbee if he/she managed to get it through the "tissue" Shield. Hawkeye Archery Lessons: I hand-drew Hawkeye, painted him and created a target for him to sit on. Once both pieces were painted and dry, my husband and I glued them together and added a plastic covering to the target (found at the Dollar Store in with the office supply stuff). The kids were all given bows and arrows I found at the Dollar Store and each one took a turn, shooting (We ended up giving everyone both of these at the end of the party though because we didn't want to have anyone go home disappointed). Thor High Striker: I couldn’t even begin to tell you how we made this. We grabbed some extra wood from the garage, pieced them together and well... tried it out. We found a magnet plate meant to put your keys in at the Dollar Store and took it apart. We attached a ring to a ball, fed some string through it, attached the magnet to the top and finally fed the string to the back. The looser the string, the harder it was to get the ball to the top. We added final details the night before the Party like the cardboard and letters and voila…A high striker game! Iron Man Defeats Modok Water Balloon Toss: Each child took a turn throwing water balloons at Modok. My husband is incredibly artistic when it comes to drawing these characters with colored chalk.
I picked up large favor bags from the Dollar Tree, added some gold and red ribbon, and made up a Thank You label for the front of the bags.
