With four kids, birthday party ideas are hard to come up with at times.

Thankfully my kids are willing to go with a theme- and this year the parties are all Marvel or superhero inspired. Because they are kinda my jam.

We’ve been watching the Marvel movies in order in anticipation of the Avengers: Infinity War coming out in a few weeks. And I’m also geeking out over the Incredibles 2 movie coming this summer.

My youngest is asking for an Incredibles 2 movie themed?birthday party and I’ve already got one Incredibles birthday party idea for her: these Incredibles 2 movie Mask cookies. Check those out- they are so cute!

The next birthday party coming up is definitely going to be celebrated with sprinkled donuts because that’s how my oldest rolls.

I’m having so much fun finding Marvel Incredible Hulk birthday party ideas for kids of all ages!

Incredible Hulk Cake Donuts Recipe

These are actually pretty easy to make- and just easy in general.

My daughter just asked me if they were for Mardi Gras- nope. But they sure could be Mardi Gras donuts!

I think this also works well for a Maleficent or Disney Villians themed birthday party if your kid leans that way.
