The Hulk Smash Wall will go down in history as the most-loved party game to date! I have yet to find something that people of all ages enjoyed more… seriously, causing chaos and destruction is just too much fun! Add a Marvel Avengers Age of Ultron Hulk Mask and Marvel Avengers Hulk Gamma Grip Fists?!?
Match made in history.
When we decided to throw an Avengers Movie Marathon we wanted to incorporate our kid’s favorite superheroes: Captain America and The Hulk. After writing down our shopping list we concluded that The Hulk, our daughter, must have some monstrosity to destroy.
Conclusion: The Hulk Smash Wall.
She relished each and every moment causing destruction in our backyard. Our tiny yard echoed in maniacal laughter that is usually reserved for Super Villains.
Apparently, destroying things can be a family affair.
12-15 Medium-Large Cardboard Boxes
3-5 Tiny Cardboard Boxes(The Toddler’s rejoiced in these)
Brick Red Paint- 1 quart(a quart is completely necessary)
Black Paint-Paint Sample Size
Time: 3-3.5 hours
You can’t really put a price-tag on PURE JOY but the price and labor were more than worth it! I mean toddlers, preschoolers, kids, and teens played with the Hulk Smash Wall continuously for three hours. THREE HOURS. Even with an entire table full of sugary treats they rarely rested for more than five minutes before attacking the wall again.
Raymond helped me assemble the boxes right before nap time.
During nap time I was able to paint all sides and tops of the Hulk Smash Wall. One light coat(not perfect because who are we kidding it is going to get smashed to smithereens) and if I were to do it again I would have painted the bottom too. The boxes dried super fast and I was able to line them all up on three rugs and our dining room table and paint away.
Had it not been 90 degrees outside I would have much rather painted in the backyard. Fumes were not a problem, but toddlers waking up while I paint the last side are.
I painted the “Brick” on the Hulk Smash Wall after the kids went to bed.
Took less than twenty minutes and BAM-er… it was a SMASHING success!
There was no “one right way” to build the wall and the varied sizes of the boxes made it easy for all of the kids to create their own.

Boom goes the dynamite.
Both of our kids SMASHED til their little hearts delight. Hours of fun and no injuries to report.
I definitely recommend a section of destruction at your next Superhero Party! It goes without saying that you should be careful and make sure that you always watch your little ones while they DESTROY the WORLD.
That felt good.
Now all Superheros were allowed to Smash their own way. Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Iron Man SMASHED equally awesome. At least that’s what a bi-partisan party goer believes. I have my favorites…

What party game has been a SMASHING success for you?
I would love to hear other options especially as we gear up for hosting our two little ones birthdays this summer and fall! Thanks for sharing!
