superhero party games.

Last up: Super hero party games!
We had the party at the field house at our park and the weather was kind of iffy that day, so we didn’t know how much time the kids were going to get to play outside. So we planned some indoor and outdoor games.

When the kids first arrived, I had them decorate their goodie bag with superhero stickers.


We played musical chairs to get the kids warmed up.

Then we played freeze dance. Here, they had a chance to freeze and do all kinds of superhero moves.

We then went outside and put a mask on my husband. He acted as the villian and the kids had to chase after them, wearing their masks of course, and if they tagged him he threw candy at them.

We planned a water balloon toss, but since it was chilly, we just had the kids run inside, grab water balloons and chase the villian, trying to hit him with water baloons. THIS was a HUGE hit. The kids were going crazy, having a blast!

Last game before the pizza came was “tie up the villian.” we had four dads sit in chairs and gave the kids each a roll of toilet paper to tie up the bad guy.

we didnt do winners/losers, since these kids are all around 3-5, and get their feelings hurt easily when they lose. During musical chairs if they lost, they got a turn to start/stop the music. We made sure we had plenty of candy for everyone so it felt like all the kids got alot. During the water balloon throw, each kid got to throw a few water balloons each. And during the tie up game, no team “won.” we just celebrated everyone and gave the kids lots of candy to take home!

289. DIY angry birds game.

A rainy day (complete with tornado sirens) kept us locked up in the house all day…so I made this angry birds game for milo.

I found a super easy tutorial on how to make yarn pom poms and created them to look like the angry birds. (milo pointed out the the green was NOT the same green that the pigs actually are, but this is what I had on hand) A quick trip to walgreens for dixie cups, and our game is complete. This kept milo busy for quite some time!
