Superhero Soda Gift

Have you noticed yet that my family’s a bunch of comic nerds? Or would it be geeks? Either way – that’s what we are, big time! My 6-year-old knows the difference between Justice League and Avengers. My boys will yell at you if you call the wrong hero the wrong name. It’s awesome! So, for Father’s Day, we wanted to do something ultra-nerdy and fun and decided to give Flash a gift that was simple, tasty, and reflected our family. Thus – our Superhero Soda Gift! Since there are 6 bottles in the set, each bottle represented a family member – perfect!
Superhero Soda Gift with Free Printables / Busy Mom's Helper
Being our nerdy selves, each of us has a Superhero name. My daughter is Wonder Woman, twins are Superman and Batman, and the youngest is Green Lantern. Hubby is Flash, and I’m Hawk Girl (when the kids say this, it sounds like ‘Hot Girl’ – not going to complain about that!).
Here’s the full Superhero Soda Gift set, in all it’s nerdy-glory!

Supplies

  • 6-pack of IBC cream soda (or orange – just so long as the bottles are clear)
  • Printables, found below
  • Tape or Mod Podge
  • M&Ms, Skittles or other candies the correct color (small enough to fit into the bottle)

Directions

Print and cut out the printable pages found below. Use tape or Mod Podge to attach them to the box, trimming any excess. Attach the labels to the top of the bottle caps, and tape the bottle wraps around each bottle.
Fill each bottle with the appropriate color of treats. Here’s the colors we did:
  • Flash: Red and yellow
  • Hawk Girl: Red and yellow (could also use black – but I didn’t know what candy to do for that)
  • Wonder Woman: Red, yellow and blue
  • Batman: Yellow (could also use black/grey – again, no idea what candy)
  • Superman: Red, yellow and blue
  • Green Lantern: Green (again, black could be used)
Replace the caps, and you’re good to go!
Notes: If using M&Ms, I found that in the 3 huge bags we had to use, there were more blues than any other color, except maybe brown. In all of those 3 bags – so that may just be the normal! Other thoughts for candies: Lemon Heads, small Swedish Fish, Skittles, Nerds, etc.

    • Aw, thanks a bunch Jennifer! I’ll be sure to catch next week’s fun party 😀

  • Love, love, love this! I have to do this for my little guy soon! Thank you for sharing this! I found you via Living Well Spending Less.

    • I’m sure he’ll love it! It was way easy, too – one of the best things (other than the m&ms) 😉

  • You can buy different color M&M’s online here: http://www.mymms.com/colorsonly/ as they have like 25 colors and you can buy them in as small of bag of 7oz for $6.99. I think you can even add your own image to the M&M’s as well, so you could have a logo of the super hero printed on it.

    This website doesn’t have as many options but is cheaper: http://www.sweetbe.com/candystore/catalog/Create-your-own-Custom-Color-MMs-Mix-p-16485.html For 1.25lbs it’s only 9.99.

    Anyways, cool thing you made for kids but there are a TON of options to get different colors if your willing to buy offline.

    • That’s fantastic, thank you so very much for sharing that! That will help with quite a few projects I have coming up, so greatly appreciate it 😀

  • Hopping over from Strut Your Stuff Saturday to say that I love this idea…so creative! Can’t wait to figure out an occasion to use it. I’ve pinned it to my Five Heart Home boards. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Wow! Love this & know some little ones who will too! Thank you so much for linking up with us this weekend at One Sharendipity Place!!
    Sue @TheT2women.com

    • I told my hubby that people keep mentioning how much their little ones will love this and what that says about him…he replied: it means I’m a kid at heart who gets m&ms in cool superhero containers 😀

  • That is a really cool idea! following you now!
    ~Shamene @shamenesayitwithcake.blogspot.com

  • Such a cute idea!! I love it, Danielle!
    Thanks so much for linking up to our “Best Of The Weekend” party! I have also pinned this to our BOTW board and to another big board of mine!
    Have a great rest of your weekend and we hope to see you back at the party next week. 🙂
    xoxo

    • Thanks so much, Claire, you’re always so sweet! I’ve missed the fun parties the past several weeks, looking forward to more fun next week!!!

  • What a cute gift idea! As far as the blue, I don’t think it was just your bags of M&M’s. When I did my 4th of July Apothecary Jars, there were more blue than red (I was only using the blue and red).
    Take care,
    KC

    • Those July Apothecary Jars were way cute, by the way! Glad the blue-majority wasn’t just me 🙂 Did you see the comment a few up, with the link to a site you can get all one color? Just in case you need certain colored ones in the future 😀

  • My boys would go crazy for these – they are so cute!

    • Hi Chrissy! I have no idea how they got removed, but yep they’re not there! Email me danielle @ busymomshelper.com and I’ll email you the pdfs directly since you need them asap. I’ll also try to get them back on the post tonight 😀 Thanks for bringing that to my attention, and I’m so sorry for the hassle!!!

      So great to hear someone’s using them for a party – if you feel like sharing pics, I’d love to see them!

  • Are the printables still available? I would like to use for my daughters birthday party in a few weeks.
