Gift Wrapping for Superheroes

Olivia attended a superhero birthday party a few weeks ago.  I knew I wanted to wrap the presents we brought to go along with their theme. It was a brother and sister who were celebrating, so we needed two gifts.   Through a quick search on Pinterest, I found the Meaningful Mama and her awesome free superhero printable. (Her whole Superhero Party is incredible!!)

I still had some red and white striped wrapping paper left over from our Cat in the Hat Party – and luckily it can also look very superhero-y with the right accents! After printing and cutting the printable out, I started to play around with how I would decorate the presents.

While shopping at A.C. Moore, I stumbled upon this yellow ribbon with stars – and it just screamed Justice League to me!

Hmmm… what to do with the remaining printable superhero words?  They were just too cute not to use.  Self-serving part of the present … in addition to the wrapping paper, we had so much candy left over from the Cat in the Hat party – why not throw in a little bag of candy with each gift?  (More on these favor bags at the end of this post!)

In order to tie the whole gift together and make it easier for my little three year old to carry the gifts, I put the presents in gift bags, used the last two words on the printable, and tied on small inexpensive superhero dolls we found at Target.

Ok – so a small note about the Spritz red and white striped candy bags (purchased at Target): they might have been the best purchase of the summer!  First, I used them at our Cat in the Hat Party, then for these Superhero gifts, and once again for 4th of July!  I have two left …watch out – I will think of some way to use them!
