We have some big Marvel fans in our home, specifically my husband and oldest son. My husband is such a big Marvel fan that we debated my entire pregnancy about naming our youngest Charles Xavier Owens (X-Men). Needless to say I won that debate. But that hasn’t stopped him from turning all three kids into Marvel fans just like he was growing up (and still is!). Earlier this year it was his turn to pick our date night and he chose to go see The Avengers. I ended up loving it! I wasn’t very familiar with the characters at the time but all the action and witty remarks from Robert Downey Jr. had me glued to the screen. I’ve been waiting months for the Blu-Ray movie release but my son was even more excited since he didn’t get to see it in theaters. To celebrate the Blu-Ray/DVD movie release we had an Avengers family night! We had a small Avengers party that the whole family could enjoy.
I made Avengers cupcake toppers using the same die from my Halloween treats. All I did was make the rosettes then added Avengers stickers in the center. It was very simple and the kids loved them!
I found some Avengers paper plates, masks, and napkins for our party, nothing extravagant but it was fun for the kids. While shopping for party supplies we played the Avengers augmented reality app at Walmart to unlock activities by using the trigger points throughout the store. My son thinks this app is so cool! We’ve never played an interactive app like this so it was a fun experience for the both of us. My Walmart only had a few displays at the time but you should be able to find them in the deli, toys, apparel, Halloween, and electronics department.
We also picked up a Marketside pizza from the deli. It had the Avengers displayed on the box which could also be used with the app. We scanned it to unlock a scene..I’m not into video games but it was pretty awesome! Look at the picture on the right, I’m holding my phone directly above the box using the app. This was our first time trying Marketside pizza and I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was. Plus I didn’t have to cook for the night so it was a win-win. ;)
We also obtained a copy of the limited edition Avengers graphic novel. The Blu-Ray/DVD/Novel combo pack can be ordered from Walmart. #MarvelAvengersWMT
Check out these Avengers masks…I couldn’t stop laughing while trying to take this picture. The kids loved them!
So tell me who is your favorite Avengers character? Mine is definitely Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. is hilarious in the movie!
