BATMAN CAPE INVITATIONS - Create a Batman/Robin-shaped cape template. Cut out several capes from black and yellow cardstock. Write the child's first or last initial in large bold print in the center of the cape. On the front write, Calling All Cape Crusaders! Then write the party details on the back. Either mail or hand-deliver them to your guests.

BATMAN COMIC INVITATIONS - Dismantle several Batman comic books, and remove the pages. Whiteout the speech bubble words. Then make color copies of these pages. Write your party details into the speech bubbles and then mail your invites to your guests.

BAT SYMBOL INVIATIONS - Cut a bat symbol from black cardstock and write the party details on the back using a silver gel pen. Place it into a coordinating envelope and mail or hand-deliver your invites to your guests.

BATMAN PARTY IDEAS FOR VARIOUS BATMAN INVIATIONS - Download pictures of the Bat Mobile, Bat Signal that was projected into the sky, or photos of Batman and Robin and glue them to a piece of cardstock. Be sure to add your party info on the other side. Place into a coordinating envelope and mail or hand-deliver your invites to your guests.

BATMAN BIRTHDAY PARTY PHOTO INVITATIONS - Start by cutting a piece of black cardstock into two pieces and then fold it in half. You can cut and fold whichever directions you prefer. Take a picture of your child wearing a Batman costume and then trim the edges with decorative scissors to give it a bit of flair. Add, "Help Me Save Gotham City" above the picture. On the inside, write the party details.

EMBELLISH READY-MADE BATMAN BIRTHDAY PARTY INVITATIONS - Purchase some premade invitations with a Batman theme, then use some glitter and other embellishments to "Bat-I-Fy" them and jazz them up.

Batman Party Ideas For Suggested Wording On The Invites:

Holy Hot Cakes and Ice Cream, Batman
(Child's name) is turning (age) and
the Penguin has stolen his Batman birthday cake!

Come dressed in your favorite Batman character costume
and help him battle the evil forces of the Penguin!

Decorate the corners with Batman theme stickers.


This is the perfect party for the kids to come dressed as Batman or their favorite Batman villain. Be sure to tell them to bring all of their super powers to the party. As an alternative, turn your guests into Batman as they arrive. Here's some Batman party ideas to get you started. Either make this be an activity at the party or just provide them with black capes with a black and yellow Batman emblem affixed to the capes. If you opt to turn your guests into Batman, be sure to provide black Batman masks.


  • Decorate ceilings with black and yellow twisted streamers and clusters of black and yellow balloons with black and yellow curling ribbons.

  • Add some fun for your Cape Crusaders to walk through by accenting your doorways and/or archways with some yellow and black streamers.

  • For wide doorways/walkways that you don't want to block with streamers, opt to hang some black sheets on them and then tie them back in a swag fashion with yellow fabric sashes.

  • Cover tables with yellow tablecloths and black toppers or vice versa. Tie corners with black and yellow ribbons and scatter black or yellow confetti on top.

  • Cover the walls with black fabric.

  • Hang plastic or rubber black bats from the ceiling and off the walls. Also, add some cobwebs throughout using angel hair or use spider webs.

  • Use Batman birthday party plates, cups, napkins, centerpiece, or use solid black and/or yellow place settings.

  • Create a fun centerpiece using your child's Batman toys. Add helium balloons, along with black and yellow tissue paper and shred to fill out the centerpiece.

  • Hang Batman posters on the birthday room walls.

  • Create a personalized birthday banner with the Dark Knight theme on a wall.

  • Make Batman sound effect words out of cardstock and hang on walls. Have them say things like, "BAM", "POW", "ZOWIE", KABAM", etc.

  • Put Batman Mylar balloons on birthday child's chair and black and yellow helium balloons on the guests' chairs.

  • Hang black bat emblems made out of cardstock from the ceiling using fishing line or black and yellow curling ribbons.

  • Make black bat-shaped placemats out of black construction paper and laminate.

  • Enlarge Batman comic strips at your local copy center. Attach them to your walls or make a tablecloth out of them.

  • Add a Batman birthday party banner on a wall.

  • Cover the front door with black butcher paper and make letters out of yellow construction paper that say, "Welcome to Gotham City".

  • Use your mailbox, car antenna or perhaps a nearby tree to your advantage to let everyone know the party location. A bouquet of black and yellow balloons tied around one of these items will do the trick.

  • Draw large yellow question marks along your walkway.

Turn Your Party Room Into Gotham City

Here's some Batman party ideas to help you turn your party room into Gotham City and invite your guests into the Bat Cave. If at all possible, hold your party at night in a pitch-black room. If it must be done during the day, then darken up the room by placing black butcher paper over the windows.
  • Create the Bat Signal using a spotlight with a bat-shaped cutout taped on the lens. Shine it on the wall to look like the Bat Signal is in the sky.

  • Here's some Batman party ideas for creating a big city skyline. Using large pieces of cardboard and paint all of your "buildings" black. Hang your sky line on a large wall. Tape white Christmas lights while following the buildings of your skyline to light up your buildings and accentuate their shape.

  • Paint large cardboard boxes to look like computer screens and electronic gadgets for your Bat Cave. Remember, if you opt to use black lights you must use black light paints so the "electronic" knobs, screens, etc. show up.

  • Cover the walls with black sheets or black butcher paper.

  • Swap out your regular light bulbs for some black light light bulbs or red light bulbs to give the room some fun ambiance.

  • As everyone arrives, send them into the Bat Cave and use only black lights and glow in the dark paint and fiber-optic items so they radiate in the dark.

  • For a really fun addition, a fog machine would be perfect. An eerie ambiance will instantly be created which will intensify the thrill of the party.

  • Either buy table coverings that have designs that glow in the dark, or paint a white or black sheet with some designs using glow paints.

  • A quick way to bring the table covering to life is to cover the table with a black piece of fabric or tablecloth and then toss white confetti onto it which will glow under black lights.

  • If you can find any of those posters that are black velvet with a white design in the Batman theme, you could hang them on the walls. Leaving them as is--do not color them in--will cause the white to pop out when exposed under black lights.

  • Attach those moon and star cutouts that glow in the dark to pieces of fishing line and hang them off of your ceiling.

  • Place some glow sticks into blown up white balloons and decorate the rooms with bouquets.

  • To quickly transform various surfaces in the party room like furniture and tables, cover them up with black butcher paper, black fabric, or black sheets.

  • Accent your room by hanging strands of mini black lights around your Bat Cave.

  • Create yard stakes of Bat symbols using wood posts with large Bat Symbols stapled to the top. Line your walkway with these posts.

  • Add party flair to your front door by covering it up with butcher paper and then paint "Gotham City" onto it.

Have someone dress-up like Alfred and serve the food. Here are some Batman party ideas to fill-up your little characters. Remember to add some fun signs to identify your Bat foods.

BAT BURGERS - Hamburgers, of course.

BATS IN A BLANKET - Take some hotdogs, slicing them without cutting all the way through. Add a small strip of cheese inside the hotdog. Take some crescent roll dough and unroll it. Take one triangle and use it to wrap up a hotdog. Do this for all the hotdogs, then bake according to the package directions for the crescent rolls.

BATMAN BIRTHDAY PARTY SANDWICHES - Using a cookie cutter shaped like a bat, cut out little PBJ sandwich bats.

PENGUIN POPPERS - Pizza rolls or chicken poppers.

BAT-A-RONI AND CHEESE - What kid doesn't love mac & cheese--hardly any, so either do it the easy way with a box version or if time permits then whip up your favorite recipe.

PENGUIN DIP & CHIPS - Fill a plastic black top hat with chips. Add a pair of white gloves and a cigar by the dip to accent it.

CATWOMAN CLAWS - Use Buggles. Most kids just love to put Buggles on their fingertips, making this food fun and tasty.

BAT PELLETS - Chocolate covered raisins.

POISON IVY PUNCH - A day or so before the party create an ice ring and freeze a strand of ivy in the ring. On the day of the party, prepare a batch of green Kool-Aid in a punch bowl and add ginger ale (2 liters). Just before you serve up your brew, add the ivy ice ring.

TRANSFORMER DRINKS - Make a tray of various colored ice cubes using food coloring. At party time, give the kids some Sprite, add a colored ice cube or two to each cup, and watch the drinks transform.

POWER DRINKS - Serve Gatorade and add pop rocks to it as you serve the drinks. This will cause the drink to spit, pop, and crackle.
