I can't believe James is seven! This year he wanted a ninja party to celebrate.
I cut eyes out of sticker paper to turn some balloons into ninja faces.
The boys loved having a card to keep track of their ninja tasks and scores.
The punching bag in our garage was turned into a ninja so the boys could test their fighting skills.
The highlights of the party were the ninja masks that my sister, Laura, made for each guest out of stretchy black fabric and the swords that my dad created out of pipe materials. I wish I would have documented the sword how-to, but I was too busy helping! The boys had a great time building their swords and then trying them out on the obstacle course.
They used their swords to swat at the piñata.
The favor bags were filled with treats and candy from the piñata.
And finally, the cupcakes were topped with mini ninjas that I cut out of cardstock. James and his friends had a blast. Can't wait to see what he chooses for his theme next year!
