You’re probably not surprised to hear that my family is totally THRILLED about MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron hitting theaters, right? Seriously, we’ve been counting down! To help our family ‘prepare in style’ we stocked up an all sorts of The Avengers snacks, toys, costumes and more. Plus, we put together some super fun accessories to assist in our role playing! Read on to learn how to Make Your Own Avengers Weapons!The Avengers: Age of Ultron / Make Your Own Avengers Weapons / by Busy Mom's Helper #AvengersUnite #Ad

To get started, we hit up Walmart and got all sorts of awesome The Avengers merchandise! Some of our own choices were the themed Kellogg’s Fruit SnacksCheez-It baked snack crackers, and fun Doritos. The Avengers: Age of Ultron / Make Your Own Avengers Weapons / by Busy Mom's Helper

They even have Dr Pepper joining in the fun! If you know me at all – Dr Pepper plus The Avengers equals a very happy momma!!! Each type has a different character featured, with 7 total. Woot woot!The Avengers: Age of Ultron / Make Your Own Avengers Weapons / by Busy Mom's Helper

We let the kiddos help us pick out some fun costume accessories and toys, too. Of course, they HAD to pick the gloves for Iron Man’s Hulk Buster as well as the Hulk. There was also their Quin Jet, action figures and so much more. It was hard not to get it all!

Before you go, make sure to download the awesome Super Heroes Assemble app available at both iTunes and the Google Play store. Use it to scan The Avengers displays at Walmart to unlock some fun activities as your favorite characters! You can even scan any of the Dr Pepper Avengers 12 packs or signage for a digital comic book!

My family is so superhero-obsessed that we have our own ‘assigned’ character. Partially based on our favorites, and a large part in our personalities! Here’s the breakdown:

  • Dad: Ant Man (can’t wait for this movie!)
  • Me: Wasp (hope she comes into the movies sometime soon)
  • Girl: Black Widow
  • Twin 1: Captain America/Thor
  • Twin 2: Iron Man
  • Youngest: Hulk

Make Your Own Avengers Weapons: Thor’s Hammer

Supplies

  • 2 rectangle foam pieces
  • Duct Tape (silver)
  • Cord
  • Stick/pole for handle

The Avengers: Age of Ultron / Make Your Own Avengers Weapons / by Busy Mom's Helper #AvengersUnite #Ad

Directions

  1. Cut your pole to your desired length – keeping in mind it will be sticking into the 2 foam pieces. Stack your 2 pieces together, then work the handle into them so it’s down into the bottom foam chunk, about halfway in (don’t want it sticking through the top). The Avengers: Age of Ultron / Make Your Own Avengers Weapons / by Busy Mom's Helper
  2. Duct tape all around the foam and handle, making it not only secure but giving it the look of Thor’s hammer. The Avengers: Age of Ultron / Make Your Own Avengers Weapons / by Busy Mom's Helper
  3. Cut a piece of cord and use Duct Tape to secure it to the handle, looping it around into a knot. That’s it!

They’ve been going CRAZY this week with all the fun toys and costumes, plus tasty snacks!

I love that the gloves/fists are made of a soft foam material, so it doesn’t really hurt as they fight each other. Because no matter how many times I say ‘settle down’, they just can’t help it, I guess!

  • So, no lie, I’m watching Captain America: Winter Soldier for the second time this week right now. It doesn’t make for a very productive work schedule, but it’s SO GOOD! The Iron Man and Captain America movies are my favorites, but I really love all of the Avengers for very different reasons. Your family and all of their awesome Avenger-ness is amazing. #client
