My kids are usually excited when a new movie comes out, and I like them as well. If you’re planning a party, it’s likely that your child may want that theme, such as a Batman birthday. It doesn’t matter if you have a boy or a girl because this film is for everyone. Whether you prefer the live version or the Batman film, here are some crafts, activities, and printables to add to your Batman-themed party.
Batman Birthday Party Ideas
A Batman birthday party for your child superhero will undoubtedly provide hours of entertainment that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Your theme colors can vary depending on whether you choose a classic or modern character, allowing you to choose which appearance works best for your venue. The more prevalent colors are blue, black, and yellow, which makes it easier to find decorations.
Blow up black and yellow balloons and link them together to construct a fun and simple garland. You can mix and match the hues, or make some black and others yellow.
If you have any Batman comics hanging around, you can make a unique bunting decoration out of them! Simply cut the pages into long triangles and bind them together with thick string, leaving a few inches between each triangle. You may display your cool decorations wherever!
Place a black tablecloth against the wall you intend to use as a backdrop. Fill yellow or black balloons with air and place them on top of the tablecloth. Attach black and yellow streamers to the top of the structure so that they fall to the ground. Make sure you connect them to the floor as well if you want to twist them for a fun effect.
You can also pretend The Joker is throwing a party for Batman and decorate using a carnival. Here are some quick tips to turn your home into a cityscape! Also, take a look at our Batman decorations to get inspired.
- Cut black paper into a silhouette of buildings and tape them to the wall. Then light up the skyline using white Christmas lights.
- Buy inexpensive capes, or make your own using rectangles of black cloth. Hang a cape from the back of each guest’s chair before the party.
- Wrap crime scene tape around chairs.
- Create a bat-signal by taping the silhouette of a bat to the light of a flashlight and project it onto a wall.
- Have adults get in the spirit by having them dress as their favorite characters.
- Play musical scores from the Batman movies at a low volume in the background.
- Cut bat silhouettes out of construction paper and tape them around the room. Or hang plastic bats around the room.
- Use a Batman banner or create a green and white road sign that says, “Welcome to Gotham City,” and hang at the party entrance.
Party Games & Activities
Batman party games are a fantastic way to wear the kids out before cake and presents. Try a combination of these fun activities:
Batman vs Joker
Pair everyone off into groups of two, one being Batman and one being the Joker. Hand each Batman a role of streamers and have them try to completely wrap their Joker. As the Batman’s are doing this, the Jokers move their arms and legs to make it harder on their Batman. The first Batman to use all of his/her streamers is the winning Batman, and the Joker that takes the longest to be wrapped is the winning Joker.
Pin the Bat on Batman
Cut a big Batman out of black paper. Out of yellow paper, cut a circle and attach the Batman’s chest (where the bat symbol usually goes). Out of black paper, cut out several bats. On each child’s turn, blindfold him/her and give him/her a bat to pin on Batman’s chest. The child that gets the closest to the center of the yellow wins!
A day or two before the party, fill two large containers (that are about the same size) with water and put them into the freezer. After a few hours, add a small Batman figurine to each so that he is in the center of the block of ice.
During the party, divide all of the participants into two groups and give each child a water gun. Set one of the blocks of ice in front of each of the groups. Have the kids shoot the blocks of ice with their water guns until their Batman is free. The first team to do this wins!
Print and laminate images of Batman’s foes (the Joker, Penguin, Mr. Freeze, etc.) Hang these photos on a fence or a wall. Give each child a water gun and tell them to shoot the bad guys.
Decorate a wagon to appear like the Batmobile for younger children and give each youngster a ride around the celebration.
Make photo booth props with the kids. Set out colorful paper, markers, glue, and whatever else they might need to be creative. Attach their crafts to sticks (pipe cleaners also work) and have them pose with their props for photos.
You can purchase your own superhero favor boxes or create your own by using burlap to make money sacks. Either way, here are some goodies your heroes and villains can take home.
- Batarangs, bouncy balls, or disc shooters
- Superhero Candy
- Superhero temporary tattoos
- Whoopee Cushions and hand buzzers
- Gold coins or fake money
- Batman fruit snacks
- Personalized Batman favors
Invite your guests to your Batman birthday celebration with a personalized Batman birthday invitation that perfectly suits the theme! There’s even a Batman candy bar wrapper to match your invitations and favors!
