Iron Man Party Decorating Ideas
Party decorating ideas for kids are not complicated at all. Kids like to see bright, fun colors and balloons...but they would rather play fun party games. Keep your decorating to a minimum. Paper plates and napkins with a theme pattern go a long way and so do helium filled latex balloons. Streamers in your theme color, and add a centerpiece or table cloth to complete the look.
You can make a table centerpiece by tying two or three colorful balloons together. Stagger the length of the balloon strings, so the balloons are not clumped together. Tie the strings together and tie all the strings to a bowl, or a balloon weight. Here's how you can
make a Balloon Weight
Fun Iron Man Party Games
Fun party games are important to your event. Kids love to play games and you want to keep your guest occupied and entertained. Play "Iron Man Says"...you know it already...it's Simon Says. Or Pin the Mask on Iron Man. Cut out a picture or poster of Iron Man. Draw a mask with construction paper and let the kids play a unique version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey.
Do you think these games sound old fashioned? They are old, classic party games and kids love them...that's why they are still around. Don't be afraid to use a classic party game...just give it a little twist and incorporate your party's theme into it.
I always like to have some extra
Party game ideas
planned just in case one game is a flop, or is finished more quickly than I had planned. Treasure Hunt is always fun...just hide some goodies or "treasures" in plastic eggs or foil and scatter them around the house or yard for the kids to find.
Remember to get some game prizes too...they can be as simple as coloring pages and crayons or stickers...or as cool as an Iron Man toy.
Face painting is fun at a kid's party and so is applying temporary tattoos. Your little party guests will be lining up to have you apply paint or a tattoo...in fact you might need extra tattoos...some kids will want more than one!
To do some face painting you only need to get some gentle face paints, (be sure to read the label) and a paint brush. Paint designs or symbols on each child's face...it's not an intricate painting...just a fun mark like a star or lightening zag! If you are not sure of your face painting skills, just practice before hand on a piece of paper...or on your child's face! Trust me, that will be fun!
Keep Your Iron Man Party Short
Keep your Iron Man party time to a minimun...one and a half or two hours is long enough to play some fun games, eat some snacks and birthday cake and complete any activities you have planned. Kids get tired after partying too long...and you don't want a bunch of cranky kids on your hands!
