Captain America Party

Although birthday parties are a lot of work, it is fun putting all this fun stuff together. Then watching my kids and their party guests smiling and laughing makes it all worth while. We were lucky enough to have good weather and held his party at a park. This party was for my 6 year old, who currently loves Captain America.

Party Shirt:
I started off making a Captan America shirt for the birthday boy. 

Party Masks:  
I used heat and bond on felt and cut using my silhouette. Then I pressed them together and stitched all the edges. 

Frisbee Shields:
I found some full sized red frisbees at Walmart. I removed the painted design and added blue and white vinyl to make the shield. 

I served pizza, strawberries and red and blue Koolaids (and of course cupcakes) but also did some personalized water bottles for each party guest. 

One game was to use water guns and shoot each other, using the frisbees to defend ourselves. 
Another game was to knock the bad guys using the Captan America Shields. 

End of Party Favors:
So the party guests got to take home a frisbee, mask, and personalized water bottle, but I also put together one more little goodie bag. 

I forgot to get a picture of the cupcakes, but they were all red, white and blue. We also had a cake later with our family, this one a Captain America shield using white frosting and red and blue sugar sheets.
