I spent the last year preparing for the big day a little at a time seeing as how I am so busy.
I spray painted buildings, put together favors and made a lot of decorations as well as doing a lot of Shopping here and there. The party was a success and all the kids had a blast. First I will show you the invite. I love doing my own invites it makes it so much more personal. feel free to click on any picture to enlarge. Here is what we came up with for Crew
we spent the morning getting ready and decorating, It took us about 3 hours to set up.
I Loved his cake. Done by Broken cake creations.
Here is a group shot to start with. Since I am a photographer I always have to get lots of group and individual pictures. As the kids came in they each got their individual pictures taken in their costumes or whatever they came in.
Than we did our first game which was a long obstacle course we set up in our churches gym. Each child was timed on how fast they completed the course, each one tried so hard to beat the others time. We started with jump rope than bean bag through, then they had to jump over small building,throw a basketball in the net, climb into our spider lab with hanging spiders and find therir name on a tag with a spiderman sticker. Next, they climbed through a tunnel, webbed a bad guy with silly string, threw 3 velcro balls to get points and ended with a frisbee toss.
after games we had cake and ice-cream (everyones favorite part.) I bought each child a spiderman plate from the dollar store. Found cite little round spiderman water bottles and bought some cute straws to go in them.
than we had a fun fight in the arena game. I bought a bunch of shields, swords and mallets from the dollar store that were spiderman. We put two at a time in the ring. They had to fight each other to see who got the most hits. The other kids cheered them on.
next was presents:
we ended with some group photos, handed out their party favors which were mason jars filled with spider man stuff. I glued a spider man to the top and spray painted the lids blue. Handed out candy from the bowls such as spiderman ring pops, spider man bubble gum packs, spider man silly bands and more.The kids said " wow its like it's our birthday we are going home with so much stuff" they were super excited.
Crew had a great 5th birthday party.
