These days, my aerobics consist of ducking from Captain America’s shield while simultaneously predicting where the next Hulk SMASH will occur. Is there a better way to keep a girl on her toes? I don’t think so!
With Easter right around we all agreed that a superhero Easter party was in order. You know, because tiny humans run my world at the moment. So, without further ado, grab a notepad and prepare to fall in love with these party ideas.
MARVEL AVENGERS PARTY FOOD:
My Thor cupcakes were inspired by a package of giant marshmallows I purchased for another party plan but never used. I buy all the things when I’m party planning and end up with a ton of leftovers. Keep your peepers peeled for the Thor hammer cupcake tutorial!
Note: I created my main tower by placing a red charger on top of a superhero bucket from the Easter section at Walmart.
I added a bit of green food coloring to a bowl of hummus and called it Hulk hummus.
I decided to serve hamburgers for the main course because they can go a few different ways. You can call them Hulk Hamburgers or ‘Thor’burgers. You know, whatever tickles your fancy more.
And then there are the cookies.
For the sake of keeping it real… Captain America cookies are not for the faint of heart. Just sayin’. Iron Man cookies? Not that difficult. Captain America cookies? Prepare yourself for hours of decorating. Unless, of course, you know how to decorate cookies better than this party planner. Which is totally possible. I own my faults!
The million dollar question is whether or not I would make Captain America cookies again. I absolutely would! They give the party plan a wonderful, high impact treat that I wouldn’t trade unless I was really strapped for time.
Which is probably why I opted to accent our party menu with an easy, breezy fruit shield. It doesn’t get much easier than placing fruit on a plate.
The drinks were inspired by something you would put together for Independence Day.
CAPTAIN AMERICA DRINK:
- Start with Cranberry juice.
- Add ice.
- Add blue Gatorade.
- Add more ice.
- Top with a lemon-lime soda.
IRON MAN DRINK:
- Start with cranberry juice.
- Add ice.
- Top with yellow Gatorade.
MARVEL AVENGERS PARTY DECORATIONS:
I am <in love> with this Captain America backdrop! There are a few different ways you can craft something like this for your own Marvel Avengers or Captain America party. All you have to do is pick your preferred method below and hot glue them in whatever pattern you want.
- Option 1: Purchase a bunch of shields from the toy section of Walmart.
- Pros: No DIY required, they look perfect, and you can add them to your costume box. Cons: The shields will increase your party bill.
- Option 2: Turn red frisbees into shields.
- Pros: Cheaper. Cons: Time consuming and not as pretty.
- Option 3: Turn round pizza pans into shields
- See pros and cons for option 2.
I know utensils aren’t exciting, but you need them to eat and drink. That’s just the way things work outside of the caveman era. So, I played up the theme with Captain America and Iron Man colors.
It’s the little things that make your guests go gaga.
Or it’s the party favors. You know, because they will never admit to loving the party favors, but they sure as heck take theirs home!
Note: I placed a white crate full of superhero garb in the middle of the table so the kids could flex their imagination muscles during the Easter party.

- Baggy of animal crackers and Avenger cheese crackers- Walmart grocery
MARVEL AVENGERS PARTY ACTIVITIES:
And then we partied!
I filled Iron Man Easter eggs with candy, animal crackers, and cheese crackers so there was something for all of my guests to enjoy. We didn’t trek outside because… Michigan, but hiding eggs around the house is just as cool when you are talking toddlers.
There were even extra special eggs filled with Iron Man toys.
I wanted a fun Easter activity for them that did NOT include little bowls of dye, so I picked up a few Marvel Easter sticker sets. The kids loved covering the fake eggs in stickers and I loved my clean table.
And now for the grand finale!
Because the kids haven’t been spoiled enough already, right? I filled a few wicked cool Easter baskets with an egg kit, puzzle, and coordinating superhero mask. The kids had a blast with their goodies! I’m talking about the type of fun that results in the same puzzle being put together 5 times in one day. Parents everywhere know what I’m talking about.
Even though the tiniest superhero didn’t get to participate in the festivities, he was pretty tuckered out at the end of the day.
As I mentioned earlier, I found the majority of my party items in the Easter section at Walmart. Happy hunting!
