Marvel Avenger's themed Party

The Marvel Avenger's movie is being released on Sept 25. My family really loves all heroes especially the Avengers. I put together a really fun Avenger's themed party to celebrate. My kids loved that we were having a 'just because' party. We went over to my in-laws house to throw the party so we could have some cousin time too!

First up, I thought it would be fun to play a little target practice game. I created a Captain America Shield out of poster board and the kids each took turns trying to hit the center with the Captain American Brigade Blaster.
I found the Captain American Brigade Blaster at Walmart. I was able to purchase it at Walmart.com and then pick it up the same day in the store!  You can also see the fun Avenger's masks I found in the party section at Walmart. You can see everything I purchased for the party over on my Google + album, #MarvelAvengersWMT.

Next, the kids got to do some coloring. I found tons of great Avenger's themed printables at Family.com.

The last activity we did before we got to the fun food, was reading a Avengers graphic novel. The Avengers Blu-Ray/DVD/Graphic Novel Combo Pack is available exclusively from Walmart for $24.95. My son started reading to the other kids and they were enjoying it. It had some words quite a bit above his reading level, but I loved that he was stretching himself. They also loved looking at the pictures too of course!

Then it was lunch time! I put quite a bit of my time and effort into coming up with some fun food. The main course was all taken care of thanks to Walmart's Marketside pizzas. The boxes are even Avenger's themed.

See the Avenger's A on the box? Well if you scan it with the Superhero AR app your pizza box will turn into a 3D city scape. In fact all throughout select Walmart stores you can find signs that are trigger points for the app.

I bought some green Hawaiian Punch and applied vinyl so we could have green Hulk punch. It was a really big hit the kids.You can find the Hulk Face SVG here for download.


I also created some Thor's Hammer Appetizers and dessert. These were simple to do. It's just cheese cubes in pretzels. I also did some German Chocolate Cake marshmallows with pretzels for a sweeter version.

The last themed dessert I did was a Captain American trifle. I did layers of Angel food cake, COOL WHIP colored with food coloring, and berries. On the top I created a tribute to the Captain America shield. It was really tasty and a simple fun dessert.

Here is what the whole table looked like all set up.

 I ended the party by handing out some cute little favor cups. Each one had a Marvel Squinkie, some mini M&Ms, and a fruit by the foot. Plus the kids took the balloons off the chairs and had a blast hitting them around and playing.
Walmart had a huge selection of favor cups in the party section. Boy, girl, superheroes, and everything in between. 

The party was a big hit and everyone had a great time. Even my extremely 'girly' four year old is excited about the Avenger's. She says they are her favorite team because she likes their dance fights. Ha, ha, ha! You can learn more about the Avengers by visiting Marvel on Twitter and Facebook.

  12. How fun! My boys love The Avengers too. In fact, as I'm attending linky parties, they are watching the DVD with Dad! I know my seven-year-old would love this party, so I'm pinning it.

  14. My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.

  16. Your Hulk punch is so cute! I would love to do that for my son's Avengers birthday party. I have never worked with vinyl before. Did you make it using a machine (like a Cricut) or did you print the image from your computer onto a sheet of vinyl and cut it out with scissors? Thanks!
