If you have a little boy between the ages of 5 and 12, chances are he loves superheroes and LEGOs. LEGO created a Batman toy line in 2006, and in 2008 Travelers Tales took over the LEGO Batman line and brought it to life in a video game. Between the comics, toys and video game, you easily can gather everything you will need to create a party the birthday boy will not soon forget.

Most party supply stores sell Batman-related party favours, decorations and invitations. If you don't want to purchase them, use images of bats, spotlights and tall buildings from your imagination or magazines, or stop by a comic book shop and pick up some inexpensive comic books to create your own invitations. Cut out images from construction paper or comic books and glue it to cardstock. Leave a space for information such as the time, place and what to bring.
In the invitation, ask guests to attend dressed as their favourite characters from LEGO Batman. A pack of young boys will have fun being in a room full of Batmans, Robins, Jokers and Riddlers. Young girls who attend can get in on the action by dressing as Batgirl, Harley Quinn and Catwoman.
Pick up LEGO Batman themed decorations at a party store or discount store. For a simpler look, buy streamers, plastic cups, plates and balloons in the dark blue and gold colours of Batman. If you are feeling especially adventurous, decorate the party room like LEGO Batman's secret lair, the Batcave. Get inspiration from pictures in Batman comic books or the video game to use as a decorating guide.
Children's games easily can be tailored to the LEGO Batman theme so kids have an instant familiarity with the game, as well as an added sense of imagination LEGO Batman brings into the mix. Hide and seek can turn into "find the villain's lair." Tag can become "catch the bad Riddler." Send the kids on an adventure by hiding pieces of a LEGO Batman kit around the party site and ask them to look for pieces until they can assemble the kit. If the party has more than a handful of guests, hide two sets and divide children into two teams.
Every themed birthday party needs a themed cake. Bakeries can make LEGO Batman cakes, but if you prefer the do-it-yourself route, make a cake in the birthday boy's favourite flavour and cover it with blue frosting trimmed with yellow frosting. Add LEGO Batman figures as cake toppers.
