And then the Batman capes, cuffs, costumes and lastly, the Batman themed cake. They all set in the mood. Caped chairs for the little guests will be a brilliant idea. Batman capes will gel really well with the setting and décor. Another interesting aspect will be to follow color black for your balloons and fill a trinket inside the balloon before blowing in. Allow the kids to “diffuse” the bomb. They will be thrilled!
Well, yousoccer can always adapt to other SuperHero themes like SpiderMan, Iron Man, Avengers, Hulk and more.

Doesn’t it sound fun? I am sure it does, so does for kids too. Give the child a box of colors and some plain sheets and see the wonders they can create out of it. Crayons as a theme is not ventured into by many, so planning one will definitely be interesting. Pretty simple though, keeping the whole mood colorful and vibrant should be the focus.
