Spider Man Party Part 2

Here are a few more pictures from the Spider-Man Party.  See also here and here.  

The red streamers were from the hardware store and have DANGER written on them.  Several neighbors stopped to ask if everything was OK?  Yep.  Just a boy party.
Here's the cake I made - it was chocolate.  One party go-er didn't like chocolate so Mr. Intensity and I also made funfetti cupcakes.  I think it took about 1/2 a bottle of red to get the icing the color it needed to be.  I bought the black icing in a tube.
Above: nerf gun from the grandparents.  He loves it, in case you wondered.

Below: one of the DANGEROUS games we played while waiting for other the children to arrive.  They climbed the ladder and threw bean bags into a box on the floor.
This is "pin the spider in the web."  Notice how well all the children placed the spiders on the web?!  They promised their eyes were closed.  I didn't make them wear blindfolds since Mr. Intensity really doesn't like to be blindfolded. 
Next was the obstacle course which commenced by bamming some Spider-Man pasta.  Mr. Intensity couldn't have a birthday party without bamming!  
After whacking the pasta, the kiddos  crawled through saw horses then a tunnel, around some stools, touched the tree and ran back for the next person to go.
Thanks to the parking lot being under construction we had a perfect place to whack the pinata.  [A block from our house is a Food City, which has a hispanic niche.  Not many white people frequent the store (at least not the one by me).  I'm going to tell you a secret.  They have great deals on pinatas and real Mexican vanilla.]
Once the kids were good and sweaty from fighting over the loot, we ushered them inside to eat pizza and cake.
It was a very fun birthday.  I was really tired after everyone went home.  Mid-party, my husband put it all in perspective by asking, "What do you remember of your 4th birthday?"

Um.... nothing.

Thanks for the pictures! Did you do Spidey freehand, or with a stencil or something? It sure looks great, and I can tell everyone loved it!

I cracked up when I saw that you'd BOUGHT this pinata! No more homemade ones after our experience in May!!!

John drew the lines with a toothpick on the "crumb coat" then I went over it with more frosting.
