My little Titus is now 5. He loves math, superheros, and Legos. We took the boys to see the new Avengers movie and now it’s a favorite around the house. We had fun planning this Avenger’s party and coming up with all the fun games. We found this awesome Avengers balloon at our local party store and it floated in our house for over 3 months.
I made tissue paper pom-poms to look like comic book “POW” bursts and hung them around the house. I made a photo booth with a black table cloth hanging in the back ground and put some more comic book “POW” bursts on it. I covered boxes with black paper and cut out yellow rectangles as windows for the buildings in the foreground of the photo booth. I had wire rack set up with the boys superheros dress-ups for the kids to use in their pictures. I made the cake in the shape of a five this year. I covered it with my buttercream and then used fondant to create all the special pieces on top. I had fun making different special foods too. I thought this was a fun idea for the soda because I was raised up north where we grew up calling it “pop”. Every time I visit my dad and he calls it “pop” it sounds funny to me because I never hear that any more.Present Time!!!
I set up the games so there were 3 Avengers on each table. Hulk Smash Iron Man Repulsor Blasts -I used a funnel to fill balloons with flour and then cut circles in another balloon to put around the flour balloon ball. Thor’s Hammer Throw -I made a hammer with a foam rectangle covered in duct tape and stuck a wooden dowel rod in it. I glue it all together and put a brown ribbon and shoelace on the handle. Captain America’s Shield -I found red plastic plates for the kids to decorate and make a frisbee shield. Hawkeye Shoot -I used the boys bows and hung some balloons for them to shoot the bows at. Black Widow Shoot -I spray painted some dollar store squirt guns black and let them shoot them at the hanging balloons. It was a hot day so these ended up being a favorite… the kids squirted eachother all day. Happy Birthday my big 5 years old! I love you!
