Meet Four Fusion– our resident super hero who just turned 4. He picked the name (with help from his sister and a dictionary and trying to find a word that started with F that sounded good with 4) just for his super hero birthday party. Barry was in charge of the cup cakes and I was in charge of the super hero costumes.
I made a dozen little capes,
The little supers all drew their own super hero emblem on the back of their capes. (I can’t take credit for the genius idea though, I found it at Creative Kismet while I was asking dear Google how I was going to make a super hero birthday party really fun for 3 and 4 year olds.)
Brenna and Jonah created Super Hero IDs for everyone to color and fill out what their name and super powers were.
We attempted to play some Super Says,
but ten 3 and 4 year olds have attention spans about the length of one stint of standing on one leg with one arm in the air.
So they mostly just went wild in the basement.
The kids loved their capes and the really hard-core heroes loved their masks too. The felt was a little itchy on their faces– so if you want to try this I suggest using craft foam or something else that wouldn’t stretch out on the eye holes and wouldn’t have the itch factor for the masks.
Happy Birthday super guy! You really are one of the cutest people that have ever existed. We love your imagination and your strong will. We’re so thankful you were born– and especially that you’re ours!
(I think every one of these pictures that I picked for this post were taken by Barry– so thanks Barry for being a good photographer!)
