The pinata has the Avengers heroes on it along with matching colors to suit the party theme.
Moreover, it’s easy to fill with candies and doesn’t create much of a mess, as it’s opened using pull strings, instead of hitting it with a wooden stick. The kids must find that one magic string that releases all the candy. A great way to organize this is to give every kid a chance to pull on one string. The person who manages to trigger the trap door gets a shot at picking up the candy first. A birthday party that has a pinata always tends to be more enjoyable for the kids.

It’s a fun game for kids and is perfectly suitable for the theme.
The game lets kids explore the Marvel world through one of the many characters and defeat it’s villains through exploring new skills and abilities. It’s available on PlayStation or Xbox and can be played in single-player or multi-play mode. Just keep in mind to introduce a good player rotation, in order to give everyone a chance to play.
13. Play Some Avengers Board Games
Do you feel the need to add more games and activities to your Avengers birthday party? If yes, then another great idea is to organize a board game corner for the kids. Board games are great for parties, as they are not only fun but they also help to build certain skills and create a high level of engagement with other kids.
Technically speaking, you could choose any type of board games for your birthday party. However, in order to stay true to the party theme you should make an effort to select some Avengers-inspired board games, in order to make the party experience more authentic. 5-Minute Marvel, Marvel Avengers Match Board and the Marvel Avengers Trouble board games are great choices for parties.

14. Have a Photo Session With an Avengers Backdrop
Don’t forget that taking pictures is the best way to remember this incredible birthday party. This means that you should pay extra attention in creating the best photo opportunities with matching decorations. A great party idea is to create a dedicated photo booth to take the perfect picture in.

You can always move some of the decorations from the main party room to the photo area during the photo session.
This backdrop will be an extraordinary addition to the birthday party as it will help to fill out the background of the photos. It will help to add more color to the standard dull-looking backgrounds.

Now that you’ve done all the party planning and the kids are having the time of their lives, it’s always a good idea to thank each and everyone of them for attending the birthday party, once it’s over. Since you’ve sent out customized Avengers invitations to your guests, you should finish the same way by sending them an Avengers Thank You Card, as a token of appreciation.
You can place the thank you card inside the goodie bag, if you’re going to hand out goodie bags at the end of the party. Alternatively, you can also hand out the thank you card as they’re leaving. Either method is fine and it should depend on how you’ve planned the party.
