Batman party ideas & tips.
Batman Heroes and Villains Party Favor Box
The key to pulling off a
coordinated event: Evoke your theme throughout the affair. Whether that
theme is as general as a season or a feeling, or as specific as a
special character, it should be the subtle thread that ties everything
together. Your location, invitations, flowers, menu, cake, and favors
should all cleverly reflect one common concept. Then, get as creative as
Start by playing the Batman theme song or soundtrack of the latest
film in the background.
After selecting this
theme for your party, choose a slogan or theme to use to tie in decorations
for your Batmantm
theme. Try one of the following, or brainstorm with the birthday boy or
girl to come up with the perfect slogan for your party:
"Holy Cake and Ice Cream...Jason
is turning 7!"
"Come and Party with the
Caped Crusader and Tommy!"
"Party at the Batcave!"
"Join us for a Gotham City
Gathering...we're celebrating Todd's 5th Birthday!"
About two weeks prior to your party send out
let your young guests know what a Masked and Marvelous
time they will have at the party:
If you choose to make your own invitations you might use wording like:
"Celebrating Tony's Birthday!"
Come join us for some batty fun.

Kids love to dress up! Request that guests come to the party dressed as their
favorite super-hero. Involve the adults attending the party too...none
of us have ever outgrown the childhood fantasy of saving the world
from impending doom!
Have a friend or
relative dress up in a
Batman Costume & or hire someone to come dressed as
Take a photo of each child
with Batman and send a copy with your Thank
For very young children, costumed figures may
be very scary, we have seen many a party spoiled with crying toddlers
afraid of a costumed character. For the toddler group if you choose to
use a costumed character you might want to have someone
dress up like Batman while the children watch. This usually takes the
fear factor out with this age group and leads to a much happier party experience.

Whether party guests are careening
through the streets in the Bat mobile or soaring high above the city, a
bouquet of helium filled themed and
attached to a light
post or mailbox will let them know where the ultimate adventures of
Batmantm will begin!
Make some Big questions marks
and place them on the walk way coming into the party area, from the
Top latex balloon bouquets off with a
Batman foil balloon.
Remember the tops of the tables provide you with a very large surface area and covering them with a

Batman party ware, plates, cups, napkins at each place setting. Using a
combination of themed partyware and
solid color tableware will create a designer look.

any party, as they provide perfect tabletop accents that can be used as
decorations. Select favors specific to your theme and place them on the

Hang a banner
or decals on the walls.
Create a Bat cave to shelter Batman
and his band of friends from all the sinister criminals in Gotham
City! Cover the walls of a garage or basement room with
black flat paper.
Add a strobe
light and a fog machine to create an
underworld atmosphere. If you have any special effects
music, or the Batman soundtrack, the music will enhance your
Bat cave environment. Allow time for free play in the fantasy
world you have created.
Stuff a white satin clown suit
to look like The Joker - In "The Joker's Wild" and it's
sequel "Batman is Riled", Caesar Romero wore a costume of a
clown it was a white silky smooth satin, with balloon style pants with
black cuffs, and had a matching top with black pom poms for buttons
and a white satin hat with a black pom pom on top. For the head &
face use a white trash bag stuffed with newspaper.

they are an inexpensive but powerful way to transform your party area into
a festive space in minutes. Balloon arches are ideal for photo backdrops,
entryways, and to hi-light different areas around your party room and are
easy to make. Don't forget to tie a bunch of balloons to the
birthday child's chair.
Balloons are an affordable and easy
product to use to create centerpieces. Select balloons and curling
ribbon to match your theme colors. Inflate the balloons (always use an
odd number-3, 5, or 7) with helium and let the colorful bouquets float
above the table. Make sure the balloons float well above eye level so
guests can easily see each other across the table. Secure the balloons
by tying the ribbons to weights, floral vases, upside-down hats, or
other theme-related items.
If you prefer not to use helium, attach the balloons to balloon sticks
and holders and create a bouquet with balloons. Fill a simple vase, gift
bag, or other colorful base with shred, gemstones or brightly colored

their hi-tech, superhuman skills! Be sure to have a supply of fun favors to

faces or use face painting supplies and do it yourself. Make each child
look like he/she just stepped off a the set of a Batman movie. Take
photos of the collection of heroes and villains.

superhero, create a paper trail of clues or riddles to lead to the
capture of the goods (piñata) the Riddler has stolen.

"MR. Freeze Dance".

the mix! Play Batman music and when the music pauses they have to

that the balloons are the "bad guys"...Two-Face, Joker,
Riddler, Harleyquin, Bane, Catwoman, Penguin, Mr. Freeze and Poison

save Gotham City by creating a simple and inexpensive costume. Combine
Batman Mask with a cape, and they’ll be ready to roll.
Batman Obstacle Course:
Set up an obstacle course around your yard or inside your home using cardboard boxes, garbage cans, and other objects to slow them down. If the children are a little older, you can add challenges like ball throwing, long jump, and climbing to the course. Give
each obstacle or challenge a title related to Batman.
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Bat Cave - Use a long plastic tube to crawl
through (variation: use a
table with black cloth or sheet over it, use a blanket to crawl

Musical Bat mobile: (Play similar
to musical chairs).
Start by taping a photo of the Bat mobile (laminate the photo) onto the
bottom of one chair (before the party starts). Play Batman theme
music, when the music stop and the children sit in the chairs, the
child sitting on the Bat mobile chair wins. Repeat the play: Have the
kids turn with their back to the chairs; either mix the chairs up or
tape the Bat mobile figure to the bottom of a new chair.
Cut out the shape of the Batman's insignia and place a number on each.
Attach them to the floor with tape. Place the matching number of each
insignia in a large bowl. Play the theme music to Batman. When the
music starts the children walk around on the Insignias (play just as
you would for a cake walk) when the music stops, call out a number
from the bowl. The person standing on that number wins the prize.
Make your own Bingo cards using various colors and shapes in the
squares, as well as various
Batman Stickers (Batman, Robin, Mr. Freeze
& etc). As each child gets a row blocked out, they could won a
Batman coloring book or comic books as the prize, or any Batman favor.

Before the party begins hide about a million ( really about 50) little
plastic men in the backyard. You can usually find very inexpensive
little plastic men at a dollar store. Make sure your hider knows how
tall your average party guest is. Tell the boys they are done and to
stop when they capture 5 or 6 bad guys, so that everyone gets to find
Bat cave Hot Potato
You can use virtually any item for the "potato" for this old
favorite. If your child has chosen a character party, and has a stuffed or
plastic toy of the character, use it. Even a story book about the theme
would work well. Use music about/from the theme topic for an added bonus.
Pass The Batman Balloon
Players are in a circle. They pass the
Balloons to each other behind their backs, trying not to hold it for a long time in their hands. Then after the signal the player who has a balloon in his hands is out of the game.

This easy-to-create Bat cake is sure to
please all your little superheroes!
What you’ll need:
9" x 13" cake
1 cake mix
1½-16 oz. containers of ready-made
frosting (Start with chocolate frosting as opposed to a white
frosting, because black frosting may taste bitter if you add too much
food coloring. The chocolate frosting is easy to tint black, and
the taste will not become bitter.)
Black paste or gel food coloring
2-1" Plastic Wiggle eyes
1-Black Pipe Cleaner to create antennae
Bake cake according to directions on the
package. After the cake cools completely, place in the freezer.
After the cake is frozen, cut the cake into a bat shape.** Cutting
and frosting are much easier with a frozen cake, and you'll avoid
most of the crumbs created by a cut edge when frosting the sides. Frost
the entire bat shape with the black frosting. Add wiggle eyes.
Bend pipe cleaner into a "V"-like shape, and curl top ends.
Add this to the top of the bat head. Sprinkle
Confetti around the cake board.
Because you are cutting the cake into a shape, you will be
discarding some of the cake, and will need to adjust the size accordingly.
If you are serving more people than can be accommodated by two boxed
mixes, we recommend that you either bake extra cupcakes or an extra
rectangular cake. All can be frosted simply and cut and served behind the
