This party, by Staci of Lizard & Ladybug would definitely get my “little” brother’s thumbs up. He was all about superheros as a kid. Staci created this Superhero Swim Party for her son and daughter’s joint birthday party — not an easy feat.

Darling decorations, courtesy of my favorite Peas & Thank Yous. (Jill created the photo booth props for our Wizard of Oz party).

Paper garland over the mantle, along with a initial letter for each child that Staci decorated with superhero stars.

Staci’s children love Rice Krispy Treats, so … Snap, Crackle, Pop!

Even the lollipops had masks and superhero capes!

The activities are what I love most about this party! The children of course enjoyed the pool, since this was a superhero swim party. But Staci didn’t stop there. She included sponge balls and sprinklers.

Guests made their own superhero masks!

So I haven’t heard of an “activity table cover” but Staci found one and that meant the kids could draw on the wall — you know they loved that! (Staci even made her own star shaped crayons!)

The children drew a building out of blocks and then used their “super strength” to knock it down – ha!

Food included pizza, homemade whoopee pies, and cupcakes with toppers from Peas & Thank Yous.

The guests of honor each had their own cake with a fondant topper from Love & Sugar Kisses.

And for favors, each guest took home a Super Friend Cape made by Staci, who has kindly shared the tutorial here. Staci made 30 — oh my goodness — capes. But the best part is that they are no-sew!! (Even I could make these!)
