fun invitations, write out all of the information for the
party in a standard WORD document. However, when you save
it, click on TOOLS and SAVE OPTIONS. In this drop down menu
youll be able to choose to password protect the file.
You can now have fun with this top secret document
in a lot of different ways. Perhaps Tony Stark (Ironman) sent
a secret message from Stark Industries about a secret meeting
of S.H.I.E.L.D. (The Avengers). You can either email the invitations
directly or burn the files onto CDs and mail them as
the invitations. In regards to providing the password
this you get to have the most fun. You can either provide
the password directly in your invitation envelope or email
or you can make a puzzle out of it!
Using a square Tupperware or other kind of plastic container,
you can make a great looking Tesseract to put in your punchbowl!
The Tesseract was the glowing blue cube that contained the
power that everyone was fighting over in The Avengers movie.
Fill the container with a light blue punch (blue flavored
water would also work) and freeze the whole container until
the entire block is frozen through. This can now be put in
your punch bowl! If you want to go absolutely crazy with this,
try putting dropping in an inexpensive pond light (see the
garden section of your local Home Depot) in the bottom of
the punchbowl. Your punch will actually give off a bright
light (of course, you would need to use a clear punchbowl
for best results.)
to the above, consider an all green punch for the Incredible
Hulk. If you use a green pond light as mentioned, it now becomes
his Gamma Radiation Punch!
planning several activities and/or games, have each one represent
a different member of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team (Captain America,
Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, etc.) Explain to the kids that each member
of the team is sending them on a special mission.
For added fun you can come up with come up with creative ways
that the party guests will receive the mission details.
For example, one member can send them via a text message to
someones phone, one can be a message inside the cake (write
the message on paper and place it in a plastic baggie - push
the baggie into the cake before you frost it), someone can receive
a telephone call, etc.)
a fun pre-party activity (something for the earlier party
guest arrivals to do while they are waiting for everyone else
to arrive), give each guest a piece of paper and some craft
supplies (markers, crayons, etc.) and have them design their
OWN Avengers team logo. This is a great activity to get everyone
in a creative mindset before the party begins. At some point
in the party, allow each guest who created a logo to explain
their design and show it off!
to the above, have each guest design their own Avengers lair.
Have them detail where the Hulk would stay, where Thors
quarters would be, etc. They can include training facilities,
headquarters meeting room and any other aspect of the lair
that they feel the Avengers would need if it were their actual
the party host/hostess, dress all in black and where a black
eye patch to represent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jacksons
character in the movie.) He was the one who pulled the team
together and as the host/hostess, its a great correlation
to play. If you are having trouble finding a black eye patch,
consider buying an inexpensive pirate eye patch and taking
a Sharpie marker to it to fill in the white skull and crossbones
that are usually found painted on them.
