Oliver has discovered TMNT and was set on having his 6th birthday party revolve
around the Ninja Turtle theme. I tried to talk him into a few other themes but he had his heart
set on the turtles. It was a challenge at first to get my creative juices flowing but it ended up being a "turtley" awesome, really simple, fun, and pretty inexpensive party.
We kept the food simple
TMNT Cupcakes, Ooze Juice, and
of course the Ninja Turtle's favorite . . . Pizza!
The kiddos rolled in toxic slime ( a green towel), jumped up and gave us their
best ninja move and then became of official Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They picked out a turtle shell and the color of Ninja Head Bandana they wanted.
The turtle shells are turkey roasting pans from the dollar store spary painted green and we recycled some t-shirt to make the ninja masks.
Throw the NYC sewer lid into the bucket of toxic ooze
We painted a sandbox turtle like a Ninja Turtle and then put "shredder's" paper inside with hidden treasures for the ninja's to rescue
The Ninja Turtles had to defeat Shredder's white ninjas- inside were prizes
We made toxic ooze/slime. This was really easy- but messy.
- Mix 1/2 cup glue (about one bottle school glue) with 1/2 cup water. Mix well.
- Dissolve 1 tsp borax in 1 cup water. Slowly stir borax solution into glue solution.
- Add a few drops of your favorite food coloring color for fun- we found a neon green that was perfect for toxic slime.
Nunchucks out of toilet paper rolls- I almost didn't do this one but it ended up being a lot of the
ninja's favorite activity at the party ( and the easiest/cheapest)
