Superhero birthday party for boys and girls themed after avengers and marvel comic with free printables and easy ideas to decorate on budget. I am so excited to share my boy’s fifth Superhero birthday party. The party was based on the avengers theme and includes free printables. I love to create easy projects to decorate, so I came up with these ideas. The kids loved playing pretend superheroes and saving the world from the bad guys (villains) with theme based fun games.
We will cover these ideas for the superhero birthday party:
1. Table decoration
2. Food ideas
3. Photo booth and props
4. Super game ideas
5. Free Printables
This post is going to be photo heavy. Let’s get started:
Superhero birthday party
I love how it all turned out and on the budget too. With a few cardboard boxes, cereal and cookies containers the buildings came to life. And printables and poster paper were used to create banner and night time skyline.
Recycle boxes into buildings

The DIY lighted buildings were a perfect addition to the theme. The kids especially the birthday boy was excited and surprised when we bought the candle lighted cake into the dark room only in the presence of glowing buildings on the table.

For the food, I thought about easy superhero themed ideas that kids love to eat as well.

Comic wrapped juices
You can find tons of comic wraps online. Since, I am not sure about their copyrights so I can not share the link for the one I have used. These juice boxes got an extra flare with this quick comic wrap.
Popcorn bags customized with superhero popcorn tags. Free printable!
Kitkat candy wreath
This candy wreath made with cardboard cutout ring and chocolate stuck with double-sided tape was very popular amongst the kids.
Avengers birthday cake
Here’s how it all looked displayed together.
Every party needs a fun space to take beautiful pictures. I created a night sky photo booth with comic pennant and cardboard box buildings.
The background is a black table cover hung on the wall with double-sided tape.
Comic pennant was super easy to create by taping comic paper triangles on the twine.
For the buildings I used pamper boxes. They were a perfect size for the photo booth.
Superhero photo props

Superhero Party games
A party is incomplete without party games. I came up with some exciting games that are quick and easy to create.
Ball in the hole
I wrapped a cardboard box with brown paper. And used sharpies to free handedly draw on it.
Then I used some comic paper cutouts and stick them on it. The idea was to give the illusion of a building being smashed.
You can also print the 4×6 size printable for game sign.
Decorate your superhero mask
I bought some masks and stickers from party city. And the kids enjoyed decorating their masks.
You can also keep glue, crayons, paper and more crafting supplies to keep kids entertained.

Simply super ideas for a party for your little superhero! The party plans are amazing!!
Thanks Mary. 🙂
Thanks for the great ideas. My son’s party is turning about perfectly thanks to you!
I am so glad I could help! Thank you.. 🙂
These are great! I noticed on the downloads that there are black & white dots. Do those print, too??
Yes, everything prints but only for personal use.
I love all these ideas thanks! I am in charge of Teacher Appreciation Day and my theme is Superheros – all these ideas are great because we have little or no budget. I did not see how to make the wall buildings — can you pass that on to me!
thanks so much
Those buildings are made from poster paper you can find at dollar store.
I would like to know you made the black city scape, I know you used poster paper but do you have a template for it?
Hi Trisha, that’s a good point. It didn’t occur to me to have a template for the city scape. What I did is simply trace uneven straight lines to create a city scape and cut it out. A good way to do that would be to search for city scapes and see a picture to duplicate the effect! I hope this helps!
Hi, thank you for these printables. I was wondering if you had iron man as well?
Hi, I am sorry but I no longer have the files I used to create this collection. But I am sure you can find iron man printables online maybe for a small fee at etsy.
hey!! these are some GREAT idea’s…thank you for sharing your free printables. I am planning a superhero party (this year)for my son turning 5 in April. I’m super excited now!!!
