Superhero-themed celebration

Whether they're into Batman, Wonder Woman or totally Team Superman, everyone will love spending an afternoon of crime fighting and cake eating.

How to plan it
-Print out lots of “pow!”, “bam!”, “wham!”, and “kerplow!” signs and hang them all over the room.
-Make superhero masks for guests to wear -- we recommend having enough so each guest has at least two choices, plus extras (in case they break).
-Or instead of doing all the DIY work, have guests show up wearing their favorite crime-fighting costume (it’s a good way to reuse those Halloween costumes!).
-Have an action hero coloring station and plenty of crayons to color with.
-“Tie up” lots of party treats and prizes, and have your superheroes spend the afternoon saving these delicious snacks before it’s too late!
