If you have a child who enjoys reading about superheroes, he may want to have a themed birthday party. When throwing a superhero birthday party, it is helpful to provide the guests with a few crafts. When the kids are finished making the crafts, they can use them to pretend to be superheroes during the party.

Superhero Mask

A superhero mask can be customised to look like any number of superheroes and can be worn during the party in place of a party hat. To make a simple superhero mask, place an 8-by-10-inch sheet of fun foam horizontally onto a table. Cut out a mask shape. Place the shape across the child's face, and mark where the eyes should be. Cut out circles where you marked the eye placement. Staple a 6-inch piece of elastic to each side of the mask, then allow the child to wear it.

Superhero Capes

Superhero capes can accompany the mask and make a great project for an older child's party. Lay a towel vertically onto a flat surface. Have the child draw a superhero design onto the middle of the towel using fabric paint. Allow the paint to dry. Attach an 18-inch piece of elastic between the top two corners with a thread and needle. To wear, slip the elastic over the child's head and let the towel cape drape down.

Superhero Pinata

Children can break open a superhero pinata while wearing their masks and capes. To make your own pinata, blow up a large balloon and tie the end. Combine 3 cups flour and 2 cups water in a pot, and simmer it for 5 minutes. Once the mixture has cooled completely, dip strips of newspaper into the mixture and drape them all over the balloon. Once you have added five or six layers, allow the balloon to dry completely. Pop the balloon with a pin. Paint the shell to resemble a superhero symbol or shield and allow the paint to dry. Cut a flap in the bottom to allow you to stuff candy inside. While the flap is open, poke a hole in the opposite end. Thread a piece of twine through the hole, knotting it on the inside. This will allow you to hang up the pinata. Seal the flap with tape.
