Throwing a birthday party is not difficult these days, since the markets are flooded with batman accessories and you simply have to buy them and use them at your party. However, in spite of all the accessories being easily available, it is important that they are placed and used in an innovative manner in order to make the birthday party a success.
Worried about planning a batman party, relax, sit back and read the below list of 14 batman party ideas which will make your birthday party a hit amongst the batman fans.
1. Party Invitations
The first thing that you need to plan is the birthday invitation that you would be sending out to all the friends of your kids. It is important that this invitation should reflect and inform everyone that they would not just be coming of just another birthday party, but they would be visiting the Gotham city, the city of Batman.
There are many different batman themes that you can choose for the invitations, for example, you can create the invite in the form of a newspaper with the breaking news that a major event is going to happen in Gotham city on the date of your party and everyone should come to watch batman in action, or any other similar idea relating to batman can be used for the birthday invites.
Invitation DIY: Cut a bat symbol from black cardstock paper and write the invitation with a silver gel pen. Or glue the bat symbol to a red 3×5 card. Write the guests name on the bat symbol for a personal touch and then add the party details on the other side of the invitation.
These batman themed invites are surely going to get all the kids really excited about the birthday party.
2. Ask Everyone To Participate In The Party Theme
For your party, to have that genuine batman feel, it is important that not just your kid, you and other co-hosts of the party are dressed in attires of various batman characters, but everyone who is a part of this party, including the guests should also dress up according to the theme.
Therefore, the invitation cards that you send out to the guests should clearly mention that all the guests are required to come to the party dressed up as per the theme of the party. When everyone is dressed as one or the other character from the Batman series, your party would automatically start looking like a replica of the Gotham city.
3. Batman Decorations
Decorations are the most important aspect involved in giving your party the look and feel of batman. As mentioned before, there are many batman accessories that are available in the market on the Batman theme and you can buy them and artistically place them all over the party venue, or you can even hire professional decorators who can provide you special Batman accessories like life size cutouts of batman, Robin, and other characters from the series.
One very important thing to remember when decorating the party venue is that instead of using only the images of Batman, it would give your party a more authentic feel if you would decorate the venue with images of other Batman characters including the famous villains like Two-face, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, etc.
Advanced Decorating : Create the Bat Cave by painting large boxes to resemble computers, screens and other gadgets. Place the boxes surrounding the party area.
4. Colors Scheme
Another great way through which you can give your party the complete batman feel is by using only the colors blue, black, purple, yellow, etc. for all the decorations like balloons, curtains, etc. at the venue. These colors are synonymous with Batman and when everything around you is in these colors, you automatically feel like you have entered the world of Batman.
Colors can make a great impact on the minds and therefore, using only Batman colors is surely going to make your party a genuine batman party.
5. Welcome Capes
In spite of the fact that you would have mentioned on the birthday invites and requested everyone to dress up as Batman characters, still there would be many kids who would turn up in their normal party clothes. This can really dampen the party atmosphere that you are trying to create and therefore you will have to be prepared for this and do something to save the situation.
The easiest and the best solution for this problem is to present all the kids with a batman cape right at the entrance of the party. This way all the kids would be wearing the Batman cape and looking a part of the Batman world. Besides, the kids would love to receive a Batman cape and would immediately start loving your party.
6. Batman Food
Besides the decorations the food being served at the party should also have a batman theme to it. Especially the deserts counter, where all the candies and other sweets being served can be designed in the shape of the Batman logo or at least be in the Batman colors.
Make sandwiches with kid’s favorite filling — PBJ, Ham, Turkey…use a bat-shaped cookie cutter to cut the sandwiches. Serve with fruit or carrot sticks and dip.
7. The Batman Cake
When on the topic of food, the birthday cake is the most important food item at a birthday party and therefore, it is very important that the theme of the cake should be that of Batman.
Batman is a very popular theme and no matter from whom you order the cake from, he or she would be able to present you with some amazing Batman cake designs. Select something new and attractive as this cake is going to the center of attraction for everyone at the party.
8. Batman Attractions
Another great way to keep the kids engaged in the party and yet stay true to the theme of the party is to arrange for a counter where the kids can get temporary Batman tattoos made of their arms and faces.
All kids would love to get the Batman tattoo made on themselves and since it would be a temporary tattoo, therefore, no parents would have an objection to it.
9. Batman Games
Kids do not just love dressing up, but they are filled with energy and therefore want to run around, play games and win prizes. Therefore, it is extremely important that you plan some fun and exciting Batman games for these kids.
You can arrange for balloons with the stickers of various Batman villains pasted on them along with some balloons filled with stickers of good people. The kids would have to burst the balloons with the stickers of villains on them and if they burst a balloon with a good person’s sticker on it, then they lose the game. To make this game even more interesting, you can ask the kids to not use their hands, but only their feet to burst the balloons.
This fun game is highly enjoyed by the kid and bursting of balloons is an age old birthday party tradition.
Little Caped Crusaders
Batman or Batgirl
When the children arrive for the party give every child a cape
and mask. Cut large rectangles (about 45″x35″) from black non-fraying, fabric and simply tie two corners together.
Enlist another adult or teenager to face paint masks on each child. A simple mask outline will do.
Tip: Use Pinking shears to cut the fabric.
This will prevent the fabric from unraveling during the party.
Have the children take turns wearing a court jesters hat and leading the other children for a game of follow the leader.
Provide black paper, batman stickers and gel pens
for making Bat Planes. Later the children will use these
for a game.
Batman to the Rescue
Make a Bat Signal on a large piece of butcher paper, white sheet or cardboard. Have the children take the Bat Planes
and form a circle around the signal. When you say “POW” –
The children will throw their planes towards the bat signal trying to land on it. Play this several times giving everyone
a candy or small prize when the game is over.
Batman Training Course
Being a super hero takes strength and agility.
Develop those skills with a fun obstacle course. It’s best to have an obstacle course game in a large room or outdoors.
Use household items such as chairs, pillows, sleeping bags, hula hoops, old tires or anything you can find to create a challenging course. Show the children how to run the course from beginning to end to avoid chaos. Place exciting music
and off they go. Every time they reach the end of the course they get a sticker, candy or small prize.
Pass it On Relay
Another game to work on those super here skills.
Separate your guests into teams and provide each team
with a medium sized ball. To play, each team will form a single-file line. Give the first person in line a ball. When the game begins, the first person will pass the ball over his/her head to the player behind him. That player passes the ball between their legs to the next player. This passing pattern continues – over, under over under, until the last player in
line receives the ball. Then the play reverses back through
the line to first person. The first team to pass the ball from front to back and back again — wins!
10. Batman Music
No party is complete without some music and dance and when throwing a Batman party, the music should also be from the Batman soundtrack only.
On playing the Batman music, you would be surprised to see that not just the girls, but even the boys at the party would get all excited and start dancing like you have never seen them dance ever before.
11. The Birthday Boy
While the dresses of everyone else at the party need not be perfect, but the dress of the birthday boy should be absolutely perfect. You can either rent a Batman costume for the party or even buy one from the market, depending on your budget.
It is important that the birthday boy should be dressed like Batman, as he is the most important person at the party and therefore, you cannot dress him up as some sidekick or villain of the series, while some other friend of his roams around the venue in the Batman attire.
12. Batman Favors
The return gifts that you give to the kids at the birthday party should also of Batman theme like you can give Batman candies, Batman cushions, etc.
