Lego Batman Party Details:
This is what Cara said about planning/styling the party- “Like a lot little guys his age, my son Hudson is obsessed with two things: Batman & Legos. When it came time to plan his fourth birthday party, there was no doubt that his theme would be centered around Lego Batman.
Focusing on the retro circle Batman symbol that appeared on many of his beloved toys, I used a bright & cheerful color palette of royal blue, turquoise, yellow & black. After being inspired by some black & kraft striped wrapping paper found at TJ Maxx, I also incorporated kraft paper, one of my favorite textures.
As soon as they got to the party, our little guests enjoyed free-play at a “Rebuild Gotham City” station where we had set up Batman toys, Legos & Mega Blocks. They were also offered a Bat-Ring & a Battoo (Washable Batman Tattoos). These stations were a huge hit with the kids & got them involved them in the party festivities as soon as they arrived.
Next, the kids completed a “Super Hero Training” obstacle course complete with hula hoop jumps, pool noodle hurdles, a tunnel & slide. Everyone loved watching the kids complete the course & cheering them on.
We had a baby pool filled with a bubble concoction (dish soap, water & glycerine) and used hula hoops to create “Force Field Bubbles.” It was a little windy, but the kids were able to create some massive bubbles!
Lastly, we set up a “Blast the Bad Guys!” course with 11×17″ color prints of the Lego Batman villains secured to (kraft-wrapped) boxes. Each child got their very own can of silly string (wrapped in kraft paper & secured with coordinating washi tape!) and they ran the course spraying the silly string to “blast” each villain. I do believe this was the most-loved activity of the party. Everyone was giggling by the end–kiddos AND adults!
For lunch, each of the kids had their own little lunchbox filled with goodies. The small gable boxes were easy for their little hands to carry to the picnic table & made clean up a breeze! The little ones enjoyed a lunch of hot dogs, Pringles, applesauce, and a juice box. For the adults, we had Hawaiian ham & swiss sliders, mac & cheese, veggies, buffalo chicken dip and individual cups of strawberry-pretzel salad.
The dessert table is always my most favorite part of any celebration– and this one was no different! Using the striped kraft & black wrapping paper (that inspired me in the first place) and some plain kraft paper, I created a neutral backdrop. My husband cut the Bat symbol from high density foam (using two sheets to create depth) & we painted it to match our color scheme.”
