There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people, so when we needed them, they could fight the battles that we never could…[Nick Fury]
…which is why we have family fun nights!
…where we battle on board games and consume lots of great grub. And what better time to assemble a bodacious Hulk-smashing, Thor-hammering, Cap-worthy night of goodness than in honor of the upcoming release of Marvel’s AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. Absolutely prime time to break out the big guns of an Avengers Family Fun Night night party-dom and watch THE AVENGERS to prepare for your movie theater family night for the sequel. Try out a few of our ideas below and toss in some of your own superhero ideas to make some fabulous family movie night memories.
First, find some amazingly cool (and adorable!) Avengers-inspired decorations (you can pick up all kinds of inexpensive ones at your local retailers or dollar stores):
Print off some cool AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Activity sheets to keep the kids busy while you get the party set up (find the activity sheets here: https://www.ruralmom.com/2015/04/avengers-age-o…ctivity-sheets.html)
Get some Thor-worthy grub:
Find activities everyone loves (we call this our Avengers Assemble Lego time!):
Create a fun, quick, inexpensive foray of fun with a backyard Avenger Olympics, complete with awards of awesomeness (I made these with little medallion awards I found in the party section and Avengers symbols I printed off from a logo I found on the computer):
Hone your super hero skills and prove your super amazing powers with Avenger inspired games:
We played “Hawkeye Shot” with nerf bows testing range of accuracy and furthest flying arrows. “Helicarrier Spin” with spin flyers (see my Walmart shop for pics) to test flying abilities. “Captain American Shield Toss” with mini Frisbees to test well, shield tossing capabilities. And a range of other games like “Hulk Stomp” where we had the boys stomp in rage green monster style to demonstrate their Hulk-i-ness. The key is imagination and lots of giggles. The result is my boys are begging to play this again!
Next, give a patriotic salute that would make Cap proud:
Have Hulk do the heavy lifting because you’re a little worn out from Avenger Olympics:
Lastly, end on an educational, entertaining note with a stellar read:
The boys are currently reading The World According to Thor and The World According to Iron Man.
