For the take home bags, I had to get a little creative. We headed to the $1 store to see what we could find. The first thing we found were "jointed" snakes or "Serpentines" as we were going to refer to them for this party (there were 4 in a bag). We also found bags of rubber "Serpentines". We also got swirly straws because I thought they looked like snakes. To make them even more "Ninjago" related, I printed off these snakes I found online (web address is below the picture) and put them on the straws.
We made a laminated "place mat" for each guest. They took these home at the end of the party.
We hired a karate instructor to come in and show the boys some ninja moves. This was a huge success!
We also had a huge blow-up joust. The boys picked a Ninjago character to be and "battled" each other on the joust.
|The boys were able to use these huge gloves, or they had long, padded "jousting" sticks to use. The boys loved this activity.|
