SUPERHERO PARTY IDEAS - EASY CRAFTS FOR KIDS
Have you spotted our brand new, super cool, superhero bedding set yet? It's a subtle take on a much loved children's bedroom theme. Featuring navy and red superhero masks alongside shining stars and bolts of lightning, we think kids are going to love it. And parents, too. It superheroes done stylishly.
To celebrate its launch, we've put together some hints, tips and ideas for the ultimate superhero birthday party. It's one of the most popular party themes so here's a little bit of help to get you started, including some very cool party invitations.
All good superhero parties start with invitations that set the scene for a morning or afternoon of fantastic superhero fun. We've designed a special invitation based on our new bedding design. Bright, fun and easy to fill in, simply right click to save the image you want (a single A4 version or two invites per page) and then print off as many as you need.
LIGHTNING BOLT BISCUITS
When it comes to party food, bitesize is best; small plates of little snacks that are easy to pass around the table and pop on plates. Start with the savoury before bringing out the sweet treats - we all know what little hands will try to grab first.
To finish off, why not bake lightning bolt biscuits for all the mini superheroes to ice and decorate themselves? Transform a toddler table or children's desk in to a biscuit decorating corner. It's a fun and tasty way to add a creative element to the party. If icing isn't your forte, icing pens are relatively inexpensive and really easy for young children to handle.
Of course, there are party games like pass the parcel and musical statues but what do all superheroes need? A superhero mask! Start the party with a short craft ... making masks from pieces of felt and a length of elastic.
We recommend cutting two identical masks from the felt and then using fabric glue to stick them together with the elastic in between them. For younger children, draw the outline of the masks before they arrive so that can simply cut and glue. The masks should be dry just in time to put them in their party bags ready to take home.

PIN THE MASK ON THE SUPERHERO
Again, using the two templates and a poster-sized printout of your very own superhero, it's time for pin the mask on the superhero - or perhaps you'd prefer to use blu-tack or a piece of washi tape to protect your walls from pin pricks. The child who gets a mask closest to covering the eyes, wins. Afterwards, have all the guests write a little message on the poster for your child to put on their wall or in a memory box.
