Spiderman Birthday Party: Part 6, Party Favors

This is the sixth in a whole series of posts about my son's Spiderman Birthday Party Extravaganza!! Click here for Part 1: Theme and Invitations, Part 2: Dessert Table, Part 3: Games and Activities, Part 4, Decorations, and Part 5: Food and Drinks. Stay tuned for Part 7: Daily Bugle Staff.

Note: If you're joining us from Amy Atlas, please read on for many more details.

I know, I know, Spiderman doesn’t wear a cape, but Spider Boys do!! My fabulously talented mum helped me to sew red and blue satin capes for the boys. I also made red and blue tutus for the girls (embellished with spiders, of course). Rather than giving the children the favors at the end of the party, we gave them the capes and tutus when they arrived so they could wear them throughout the party. Each child was also given a “My name is…” speech bubble label upon arrival at the party, so Spiderman would know their names. Another DIY project/favor: I made Spiderman crayons using a lollipop mold and custom coloring books for the children to take home and/or color in while waiting for other guests to arrive. They also took home their water flasks. I bought comic exclamation tote bags online, so each child could have a bag in which to carry home their favors. They each also took home a graduation certificate from Spidey's academy and lots of treats from the dessert table.

  5. I made the Spidey Academy certificates myself. Unfortunately, I'm not able to share them with others, due to copy right concerns.

    1. Danielle,

      I did not follow a tutorial for the capes and tutus, but both are easy to make. I'll try to post a tutorial soon.

      For the capes, I just cut the cape shape out of red and blue satin fabric and sewed together (like a pillow cover) and flipped it inside out. The spiderman face is cut from red felt, then I used "slick" black fabric paint to draw the webbing. Once dry, I sewed it onto the cape.

      The tutus are just strips of red and blue tulle tied on to a wide ribbon. Each strip was about 2 feet long and tied in the middle to the ribbon, so the overall tutu was about 1 feet long. No sewing required!

      The favor bags are from orientaltrading.com, but I don't believe they carry them anymore.

      Hope that helps.

    1. I have a tutorial for it that I never got around to posting, but basically you melt the crayons in a metal tin can in the oven, then pour the melted wax into a candy mold and put in the freezer to harden. :-)

    2. did you use the hard candy mold or the regular candy mold?

      Thanks

  12. How did you get the labels for the crayons long? I just ordered the printout package and they were not included just square ones.
