Here is my take on the ninja birthday theme. I found so many great ideas on Pinterest. I was also inspired by the Clumbsy Ninja App. My boys love that game.
Ice Melt Activity
This was one of the biggest hit of the party! The kids kept coming back to the sensory table to see if the ice melted. During each visit certain toys began to emerge from the ice. It became a great sensory and texture exploring activity. They were totally fascinated by it! As the party came to a close, I realized the ice wasn't melting fast enough for them to retrieve their favors. I gave the kids cups and squirt bottles filled with water to melt the ice faster. Another great science experiment! I would totally recommend this activity for parties or when ever.
No wonder Pinatas are such a hit at parties. Kids love whacking things. Here's a safer alternative to that dreaded stick used on pinatas. Use Paper towel dowels instead. We duck tape ours with fun colors. Best part is you can hang what ever you want to match the theme of your party/lesson/play date. Use duck tape to suspend all strings from ceiling. It holds up best.
