themed party ideas

Ages: 5+ yrs

# of Players: 4-30

Prep Time: 10 min

Equipment: 1 foam frisbee for every 5 players. (You can substitute sock balls, squishy balls or any other soft object)

Set Up:

  • Designate 1 person to be "Batman" or "Batgirl" for every 5 players. (If you have 15 players, select 3 people to be Batman).
  • Give each Batman a foam frisbee. ("bat")
  • The rest of the players are the "Jokers," and they scatter throughout the playing area.


  • The Batmen try to capture the Jokers with their "bats". They do this by throwing the foam frisbees at them and trying to hit them. 
  • If Jokers get hit, they freeze until all the Jokers have been hit.
  • When all of the players have been tagged, select new Batmen/Batgirls. 

Secrets for a Great Time:

  • Play Batman music.
  • If players are having trouble hitting people with the Frisbees, make the playing area smaller or use larger objects (giant flying disk, beach ball, etc.)
  • For younger players or if players are getting tired, decrease the size of the playing area.
  • If anyone gets hit in the head, they are still in the game.

For a Twist:

  • Designate an area in the playing field to be a jail. When Jokers get hit, they have to go to the Gotham City Jail. The leader can call "Jail Break!" and allow the Jokers to escape back into the game for a little more excitement.
  • Divide the players into teams of bad guys: "Jokers," "Penguins," "Catwomen," & "Riddlers". When someone from their team gets hit, they can unfreeze them by tagging them with their hand or they can grab them out of jail.
  • Choose your own favorite Super Heroes!

If this game doesn't grab you, we've got plenty more kids party activities to choose from that perfect for large or small groups!
