Spiderman Birthday Party | Whitney Beth Photography
Birthday season is beginning to wind down around here. (We just have Banks on the 23rd and then Remington isn’t until July!) Last weekend we celebrated Fields turning 3! My Spiderman loving little buddy wanted to have a Spidey themed birthday party. After seeing his brother’s dragon birthday where they defeated a dragon (aka fought their uncle), Fields wanted to incorporate that into his party. So I asked two of my brothers if they’d be Doc Oc and Green Goblin.
Since Fields turned 3 and the friends we invited were also 2 & 3, it was a little more on the mellow side – and only an hour long party. But it was perfect! We had Spiderman training classes to learn how to use their Spidey powers from the Spider ring I gave them. We had them use their Spidey senses to crawl through a tunnel and hone their agility by maneuvering through webs. Then I had them practice their web slinging aim on a target. During their target practice we got word that Doc Oc and Green Goblin had escaped from prison! I sent my baby Spiders in training to defeat them with their web fluid!
They all loved it! Especially using silly string to get the bad guys! Then we finished up with cake and presents. I made all the costumes for the villains. I’m pretty proud of how Doc Oc’s arms turned out. I made them out of pool noodles, duct tape, cardboard and a string backpack that I cut up. (It was a big hit with the Dads after the party too! haha! They took turns putting it on and attacking the kids!) I also had borrowed a trench coat from a friend but it was surprisingly warm that day and I didn’t want my brother to melt in it/get it covered in silly string, so I only had him wear it for pictures. Green Goblin sported a witch mask that my mom had, but not only was it super hot, it smelled gross. So Kenny braved it for photos and we called it good. I had him wear one of my hoodies, and I found the bag and pumpkins at the DI for $4 total. Not too shabby!
It was such a fun, short and sweet party! The kids had fun, the parents had fun, and it was so easy and low stress (the opposite of Jones’ party haha!) If you want to recreate this theme for older kids, you can always make the training more challenging – like have the “web” aka yarn, stretch all over the place. Not just along the top layer – but since my party attendees were still learning coordination, I cut them some slack. lol. Here’s a few detail shots I grabbed before and during the party! (I also included the birthday cake blow out from our evening party with family. While I was upstairs, Fields thought his cake needed some extra touches and added another Spiderman, Ghost Spider and a Spiderman car! haha!)
