Spiderman Party Invitations
The first enemy that you must defeat in the quest for a perfect Spiderman party is a great invitation. You can easily make your own invitations using bright red cardstock. Fold the cardstock in half and then draw a spider web pattern on the front in black. You can then print out or cut out white or blue letters to add to the front of the card to announce the party. On the inside of the card you can write all the party information.
If you want to purchase invitations or have personalized invitations designed you can find some great options at Etsy. DarlingDesignsbySara created the invitation featured here, but there are options to fit any style or theme that you are looking for.
Spiderman Party Decorations
With the decorations, red, black, blue and spider webs are going to be the staples of the decorating process. For some fun spider web decorations you can head to Redbook Mag. They offer a great tutorial for making spider webs in any color you want, be it black glitter or silver. These unique designs can be placed anywhere in your home once completed.
Another fun idea is to create comic book letters that spell out the birthday child's name. The Party Wall features a great tutorial for how to create this cool look. The best part is that they can be reused as decorations in your child's room after the party!
For other party decorations you can print out images of Spiderman and frame them with blue and red streamers and balloons. Opentip.com has a great (and big!) cardboard standee of Spiderman that would be perfect for decorating anywhere at your party. Once again it has the added benefit of being reused in your child's room after the party.
This awesome Spiderman table centerpiece features Spidey in action with some of his greatest enemies pursuing him. Villians include Doc Oct, Venom, Carnage, Green Goblin, Sandman.. This is definitely one for Spidey's biggest fans and would bring elements of the comic book and tv series striaght into the party.
Spiderman Party Food Ideas
Spiderman party food is all about being fun and cool. Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons created these awesome spider web pizzas using English muffins, sauce and string cheese. They are so cute and such a great way to incorporate something other than sweets onto the food table. She also has a great idea for spider deviled eggs if your child is a fan of deviled eggs. Mom on Timeout came up with idea to make red rice krispie treats and paint little blue and black spiders on them with gel frosting. It is amazing how easily you can transform your child’s favorite treats to fit the theme.

If your looking to decorate your cake with something which is easy to apply but has an amazing finish, then this Spiderman cake topper can do this well. It comes with 3 action figure villians (Vulture, lizard and green goblin), a Spiderman flying disc figure and a city background scene.
Spiderman Party Games and Activities
The next must have for any great Spiderman party are some great activities that will keep the kids laughing and having fun. The Party Wall offers several great Spiderman activity ideas including creating targets featuring some of Spiderman's worst enemies. The kids then aimed at the targets using what else but silly string! There are Spiderman gloves that you can purchase so the silly string will actually come out from the hand like it does for Spiderman, but the kids will have fun with just the cans as well. Another fun idea is to play Stick the Spider to the Web. For this game you just need a print out of a spider web and plenty of small spiders. You can use plastic spiders or cut spiders out of paper and attach double sided tape to make them adhere to the spider web. Blindfold the children and let them take turns trying to pin the spider to the web.
Spiderman Party Favors
Spiderman party favors are going to be the finishing touch to one great superhero party. Birthday Express features a great party favor kit that includes 48 pieces themed around and emblazoned with Spiderman himself. Another idea would be to send the kids home with their own can of silly string, but this might be something you want approved with the parents first (silly string can stain floors, walls and cement...lessons learned). Yummy Piece of Cake has another great idea for some fun and delicious favors. Make up some chocolate covered or caramel covered apples and then coat them with blue or red sprinkles. Wrap them with cellophane and then finish with ribbon tied with a picture of Spiderman himself. These treats are simple and a great way to give a yummy treat without sending the kids home with tons of candy.
