Superman Birthday Party
Faster than a speeding
More powerful than a locomotive.
Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
Look! Up in the sky!
It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Superman!
Yes, it's Superman - strange visitor from another planet who
came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of
mortal men. Superman - who can change the course of mighty
rivers, bend steel with his bare hands, and who, disguised as
Clark Kent, mild mannered reporter for a great metropolitan
newspaper, fights the never ending battle for
and the American Way.
Superman is a great American hero and is a
perfect choice for a birthday party theme.

Superman Party Games
Able to Leap Tall Buildings Obstacle Course
Set up an obstacle course
that looks like a city using large cardboard boxes and any items you
have that kids could jump over, climb through or have to go over or
under. Decorate the boxes to look like tall buildings by drawing windows
onto them and stacking them on top of each other, place string
in a criss cross shape that they must crawl through, use trampolines
that they have to jump on and and sawhorses to crawl under.
Play this game individually by timing them with a stopwatch or as teams
against each other in a relay race.
Mild Mannered Reporter Relay
Relay race where party guests have to change into two sets of clothes
the fastest. Gather two sets of these items: Old suit
coat and suit pants (check Goodwill stores), new socks, men's dress
shoes, briefcase, sunglasses, tie, and a newspaper ... and two sets of
these items: cape, new red socks, large blue long sleeve t-shirt,
Superman Emblem (make from construction paper or print off the
computer). Set the Clark Kent items in one pile and the Superman
items across the game area in another area. Divide guests into two
teams and one by one the kids have to dress up in the Clark Kent items,
run to the Superman items and change ... run back to their team and tag
in ... then run back to the other side of the room and change back into
the Clark Kent clothes and finally run to their team so that the next
child in line can go. For more fun decorate large appliance boxes
to look like telephone booths and make the kids change into the Superman
clothes inside it.

to stakes in the ground that say ... "It's a bird" and "It's a plane"
... one word per sign.
Decorate the party table in blue and red with
touches of yellow. Red and blue helium balloons can be tied to the
chairs or left to float on the ceiling so the kids can play with them
during the party.
Attach red fabric to the backs of the chairs of
the party table to look like Superman capes.
