At Caroline’s super hero training birthday party, the kids were required to complete 4 missions.
Each mission had one or two components. For example, there was an “Accuracy Mission,” since all super heroes need to have good accuracy when fighting the bad guys. A bean bag toss and a ping pong bounce game were played in order to test our little super hero trainees. Since they passed that mission, they received super hero cuffs – more on those another day.
The 2nd mission, the “Eye Test,” consisted of two activities – Super Hero Bingo and Bad Guy Scavenger Hunt. Super heroes need to have good eyesight to spot the bad guys so these activities tested that.
The Bad Guy Scavenger Hunt was definitely a 4 year old favorite.
Each trainee was given a marker and a sheet containing 16, “Bad Guys.” I used characters they might know of instead of typical comic book villains.
The trainees were then asked to walk around our first floor to find the bad guys. They particularly enjoyed being able to mark off each character once they found a bad guy.
Before the party I had printed out large versions of the same characters on their scavenger hunt sheet and taped them around the house.

Once the trainees completed their eyesight mission – bingo game and the scavenger hunt – they received a chest letter (piece of felt with a safety pin (with a flat back) glued onto the back.
Man, four year olds are so much fun!
All 11 of the girls loved dressing up and were totally game for each mission.
Scavenger hunt for 4 year olds, mark that one down as a keeper!
