If you have super artistic skills, decorate the tops of the cupcakes with Superhero logos like Spiderman’s spider, Batman’s bat, Flash’s lightning bolt, or a Ninja Turtle facemask.

Rock Candy Kryptonite: Superman’s arch nemesis, Lex Luther, approves of green Rock Candy, which looks like Kryptonite. Although Kryptonite Rock Candy weakens Superman, it will be sure to give your kiddos super speed… or a sugar rush!

Deli Platter of Superhero Birthday Sub Sandwiches: Superheroes LOVE submarine Hero sandwiches! You can pick up a platter of finger-sized subs from your closest grocery store, which will cost around $25 to $50. Watch out though—some kiddos with tricky taste buds or super throwing powers will destroy an unsupervised sandwich platter.

Super Hot Dogs: A super cheap solution for feeding a team of superheroes! Transform your average Hot Dog into a Wonder Dog at your superhero-themed birthday party.

Rope Licorice: Twizzlers is a yummy twisted licorice candy that doubles as Wonder Woman’s Rope!

Cat Burglar Bugles: These corn chip snack foods are actually Cat Woman’s claws in disguise.

Fruits and Vegetable Superhero Snacks: Kids might think you’re a Super Villain if you try to get them to eat fruits and vegetables at your super hero birthday party. BUT you can be a real-life hero by labeling healthy food with fun superhero boosts:
Builds Muscle! (broccoli)
Super Energy! (blueberries)
Improves Elasticity! (grapes)
Enhances Laser Vision! (carrots)
Immortality! (spinach)

Super Fun Super Hero Activities

Balloon Guy: All young superheroes LOVE balloon animals! Especially when the balloon artist can make Superhero characters out of balloons! Some of my favorite balloon animal superhero creations are: Spiderman, Incredible Hulk, Batman, Wonder Woman, Ninja Turtles, Iron Man, Captain America, and Power Rangers.

Superhero capes, swords, and shields made from balloons are also popular. Click here to hire me, Lauren the Balloon Girl from YTE Events in Tampa, for your upcoming superhero-themed birthday party!

Superhero characters: Have YTE events supply you with super hero characters that can offer great superhero party ideas for boys while they are at the party and then finish up the day with an awesome rendition of their superhero happy birthday song! They are also great at providing superhero birthday party games for the kids as well.

DIY Super Hero Masks: Every child at your party will LOVE to make their very own Superhero mask.They also make great superhero birthday party favors!

Print out and make your very own Superhero masks using printer-friendly PDF templates. Masks can be created with inexpensive Felt or Foam, and you can even cut out shapes (stars, lightning bolts, circles, hearts, etc) so the kiddos can decorate their masks alongside their fellow heroes. Tacky Glue is cheap AND works wonders!

Face painter: Worried about the kiddos making a super mess with the Create-a-Superhero-Mask project above? To save yourself time, energy, and the inevitable cleanup, hire a professional Face Painter from YTE Events! Our face painters are super awesome at painting super amazing superhero masks on any young hero. Click here for a free no-obligation quote with Tampa’s best face painters.

Super Photo Op: Snapping the perfect photo of your little hero can be a super pain in the butt sometimes. But if you create a Super Hero Photo Op backdrop, you’ll have a hard time picking your favorite picture! Using a light blue sheet or blanket, build a city atop of it using covered or painted cereal boxes as buildings, some outdoor shrubbery as trees, and then white polyester batting/stuffing for the clouds. Have your super kid lie down on the sheet and pose for an action-packed flying shot!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle balloons: Forget those expensive Mylar balloons—it’s super duper easy to make your own Ninja Turtle Balloons! You can see the full instructions here.

All you need is:
Green round balloons
Red, Blue, Purple, and Orange crepe paper
White paper (cardstock or normal printer paper)
Black Sharpie marker

Spiderman’s Web Shooters: Who knew that the Dollar Store’s Silly String collection doubles as Spiderman’s webs? Kids LOVE silly string, especially when you wrap the cans with Spiderman logos and hand each hero a can of superhero spider webs.
