One of the most successful parties we have had have been a Super Hero theme; everyone came dressed either as their favorite super hero or became their own special super hero. This post is full of games and songs to play at your event.
Add the following activities into your party:
- Super Hero Photo Scavenger Hunt
- Complete a badge at your party using some of these activities
Games, Songs and Crafts For Party
Super Hero Craft
You can have your girls come dressed as their favorite super hero. Then when they arrive we made their very own super hero mask to wear during the day during the event. Get yours now: Superhero Masks Craft Kits – Makes 12
Give girls silly string and go after the leaders with their webs. Of course the girls will have a blast hitting each other as well.
Spidery Obstacle course
This is a hysterical superhero game; I set up a simple obstacle course using tables, mattresses, and chairs. We paired the girls up, one player was blindfolded and their partner had to lead them through the obstacle course using only their voice. I set plastic spiders all over the course. The object was for the blindfolded player to collect as many spiders as they could in one minute. Afterward the players switched roles and went again. The team that collected the most spiders won.
The girls sat in a circle, almost shoulder to shoulder, we explained to the scouts that superman was a superhero who had amazing powers and abilities, but the only thing that could hurt him and made him lose his powers was “Kryptonite”. We told the girls that they all had to pretend they were Superman and they had to get rid of the Kryptonite by passing it to the next player as fast as they could. We used a green ball represented Kryptonite…
This game is played like musical chairs play music when music stops the one that is holding the Kryptonite is out. We continued the game until the last one is left and she won.
Blow up 30 or smaller balloons. These balloons should be no bigger than 6 inches long because they will be stuffed into baggy clothing. Divide the children into teams of three or four. Each team will choose one member of the team to be the superhero. Have the superhero wear some extremely over-sized and baggy clothing, such as an adult sweatshirt and sweatpants. Set a timer for one or two minutes. When you say “Go,” have the participants stuff the balloons into the superhero’s clothing. Whichever superhero has the most “muscles” at the end wins.
Sing a Song
The song Can-A-Woman is a very popular song with girls we used it at our day camps and meetings. Just added the line can a woman be super hero…and it fits right in.
Can A Woman? (to the tune of “She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain”)
Can a woman fly an airplane? Yes she can, yes she can!
Can a woman build a building? Yes she can, yes she can!
Can a woman fight a fire?
Can a woman change a tire?
Can a woman lead a choir?
Yes she can, yes she can!
Can a woman be a lawyer? Yes she can, yes she can!
Can a woman fix an engine? Yes she can, yes she can!
Can a woman be a drummer?
Can a woman be a plumber?
Can she play ball in the summer?
Yes she can, yes she can!
Can a woman be a doctor? Yes she can, yes she can!
Can a woman drive a tractor? Yes she can. yes she can!
Can a woman lead a nation?
Can she run a TV station?
Can she head a corporation?
Yes she can, yes she can!
CAN A WOMAN BE A SUPER HERO? Yes she can!
Just you wait until we’re older, then you’ll see
We’ll be women in tomorrow’s history!
As we grow up through the years
We’ll sing out loud and clear
Can we start the process here?
Yes we can, yes we can!!
