Green Hornet Party Ideas

The Green Hormet is about to come to the big screen this January.  It’s a perfect movie outing for school-aged boys who are interested in regular guys using their talents to become super heroes and defeat the bad guys. The Black Beauty car looks uber cool too.  This movie would not only make a great movie outing, but a fun party theme too.  Keep these Green Hornet party ideas in mind to bring this theme together.

Send a Green Hornet Invitation.  Create a paper Black Beauty car using heavy black card stock.  On the reverse side, cut out green paper that can be placed directly on Black Beauty and write your party details on the Green Hornet side.  Use language calling your party guests, Kato, and inviting them to help fight crime with The Green Hornet:

Think about this, Kato. We’ve been completely wasting our potential. This city needs our help. We could be heroes! We will *pose* as villains to get close to the bad guys. That way, no one will suspect we’re really the good guys. Will you come with me on this adventure?

Of course, your Green Hornet decorations should be green and black. Use these colors for balloons, streamers, and tableware.  Additionally, hang Black Beauty cars with fishing line from the ceiling of the party room and above the party table too.

When the party guests arrive, provide the kids with masks for the kids to wear during The Green Hornet party.  Additionally, paint Green Hornets on their faces.

For a Green Hornet craft, provide the kids with wood block cars that the kids can paint and decorate into their own Black Beauty cars.  These would be perfect to take home as a party favor.

Play Kato Tag.  Have the birthday child play Kato and set out to tag the others.

Provide the kids with green slime and have a slime-throwing contest among the party guests.

Divide the kids into two teams: The Green Hornets and the Kato(s). Set up a relay race where the kids must run to one end of the party area, and dress up as either The Green Hornet or as Kato and rush back and have the next child do the same.  First team done wins.

Black Beauty Race.  Provide the teams with two cars, any type will do, and have the kids race their Black Beauty cars.

When it comes to your Green Hornet party menu, think about the fast food scene where The Green Hornet and Kato try to order fast food and blow up the restaurant instead.  Serve up hamburgers and fries to your guests, along with fruit slices (a healthy treat), and green milkshakes (add in green food coloring!) Additionally, a batch of your favorite cupcakes, topped with green frosting and candies would also be thematic.

For your party favor, have the kids take home their masks and Black Beauty cars as a perfect party take away.
