These consisted of the sticky spiders, black spider rings and glow-in the-dark spider rings, Green Goblin Goo (I made this myself. It is kind of like slime or silly putty. I bagged it up in a snack-size ziplock and added a label telling what it was and how to make it. Heres the recipe: 1 cup of corn starch; 1/4 to 1/3 cup of water. Mix this together.
My kids loved helping me make it and especially playing with it. Believe me you will even like playing with it. It has the characteristics of a solid and a liquid almost at the same time), a Spiderman button (I purchased plastic buttons/photo holders with a safety pin attached to the back. Then using a round label template in Printmaster, I printed Spiderman movie pictures onto photo paper. You could also add the guests name or the birthday childs name and party date.
Next I used a circle cutter to cut these out and inserted them into the photo holders. They can wear them or attach them to back packs or purses); Spiderman stickers; bubble gum balls in red, green, blue and orange; water guns (to practice their web-shooting; and finally a copy of the Spiderman Theme Song. The one we used is the older song that I remember from my childhood not that Im old :~).
I used Printmaster again to create a label for the actual CD. I used a picture of Spiderman and then the label had the title Spider-man Theme Song and then I added in a smaller font: Thank you for hanging out with me at my 6th Birthday party! Then I added my sons name and the date.
On the back cover of the CD case, I used Printmaster again (you've got to love that program!) to create another label that had the lyrics to the song (I found these online. Here they are if you are interested: Spider-man, Spider-man Does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, Catches thieves, just like flies. Look out! Here comes the Spider-man! Is he strong? Listen, Bud! He's got radioactive blood. Can he swing from a thread? Take a look overhead. Hey there, there goes the Spider-man! In the chill of night, At the scene of the crime Like a streak of light He arrives just in time. Spider-man, Spider-man Friendly neighborhood Spider-man; Wealth and fame, he's ignored; Action is his reward To him, life is a great big bang-up, Wherever there's a hang-up You'll find the Spider-man! \* I played the theme song while my son was opening his gifts. \*
Using digital photos taken during the party, I made thank yous that were newspapers with the headlines "SUPERHEROES SAVE THE DAY!" and had two front page stories--"KITTEN GETS SUPER RESCUE" and "RIDDLER PLOT FOILED BY NEW SUPERHEROES". Each story was customized to call out the specific child's superhero info (cape color, super power, etc.). They also received the photo with Eric taken at the end.
As the kids left, they got a treatbag with a superhero launcher, superhero candy sticks and the rest was Easter candy (as the party was the week before Easter). Also, we had made them certificates that was like a diploma with Justice League colors showing they had completed superhero training camp. In one corner, we added a thank you for coming from the birthday boys.
The party bags had The Incredibles Activity book, bunches of felt tip pens tied up in a bow, packets of The Incredibles candy and a notebook on which we glued red paper on the cover and drew face masks on with words such as, Pretend I'm not Here or Save the Day.
The Party bags were completely commercial but if you wanted, you could replace the Activity book with incredible toys like invisible ink pens. Etc. We took pictures of each child in front of the giant drawing of Syndrome and Jack Jack to give in the thank you card.
The goodie bags were in popcorn bags. We included white and yellow crinkly paper to look like popcorn. The gifts were candy, a microwave popcorn bag, and Incredibles stickers.
For the partyfavor bags, I purchased the the Spiderman giftbags. I made Spiderman coloring books for the boys and Spidergirl coloring books for the girls. I used various spiderman or spidergirl coloring pages and had the books bound at a office supply store.
For the boys, the cover had a picture of Spiderman that said, "Happy 4th Birthday Frank" and the girls said the same thing except they had a picture of Spidergirl. I also made the backpacks for the girls and t-shirts for the boys. I purchased canvas backpacks and had a graphics student that I knew to design a graphic which would read, "I had a Spidey good time at Frank's 4th Birthday Party." For the boys, there was a picture of Spiderman with his web and the themesong written inside of the web. My son's name was in bold print that looked like a spider.
Superhero coloring books, Silly string (Spiderman's web), Bathooks (from a party store), Spidey toothbrushes, Batman & Robin sticker puzzles, and the Hulk blow up dolls. The girls got Powerpuff girl toothbrushes, lollipops and stickers. Each child also got a cape.
