How to Throw a Superhero Themed Kids Birthday Party

04 July 2018

We've been spoilt for choice with the amazing superhero films this year, and the lastest hero in town has set pulses racing!

Disney Pixar The Incredibles 2 hits screens this summer, and our action figures are flying off the shelves. We thought we'd give you some ideas for superhero themed yummy cakes, super-fun games and some out of this world party decorations.

So what are you waiting for! Earn yourself some extra 'cool points' and throw your birthday boy or girl their very own superhero birthday party!

No party is complete without a cake, and we absolutley love this two-tiered Incredibles version, featuring Elastigirl, Mr Incredible and the rest of the super family. If your baking skills are somewhat limited, these simple cupcakes with coloured icing will be right up your street.

B&M Top Tip: don't forget you can grab all your baking essentials at B&M, from silicone cake moulds to baking cases and much more!

There's so much to keep your little heroes entertained at a superhero birthday party! Get them dressed up as their faourite character and let the fun begin. There's superhero bingo for when they need a rest, and the amazing 'Hulk Smash' game for then they need to blow off some steam!

Your house needs to look the part, but it really doesn't take much effort. Apply eye masks to balloons for a simple yet ingenious party decoration, while ensuring your napkins, tablecloths, lanters, balloons and paper plates match the colour scheme of your kid's favourite hero will help transform your home.

Healthy the Rescue!

Cake is a wonderful treat for special occasions like birthday parties, but it's important to offer a healthier alternative. These amazing Spider-Man strawberries are so easy to make...all you need is a bit of icing, some edible gel, and your web-slinging fruit will be a huge hit with little superheroes!
