{Ninja Hello Kitty!} Seattle Area Lifestyle Photographer

My youngest turned FIVE recently. First of all, how did that happen? :sniff: Secondly, he asked for two things for his birthday: a NINJA HELLO KITTY theme, and an obstacle course. I searched around and realized that, of all the Hello Kitty and Sanrio things out there, there wasn’t actually a Ninja based Hello Kitty. I found this awesome Ninja Hello  Kitty cake on The Cakerator, and based the party decorations off of that. We did a Ninja training theme for the party, with the games being Sensei Says, a Focus Skills portion that included balancing balloons, and of course, an obstacle course (which included a rope swing, climbing through a tunnel, and climbing through our playset). At the end, all Ninjas in training received as a party prize folded paper ninja stars.  Overall, it was super fun, and my son had a great time!

Party Supplies:

 

The birthday banner! I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, the font was pretty awesome. The dragons I printed from some clip art, and the Ninja Hello Kitties I cut out of black construction paper. The red background was a paper tablecloth we hung on the wall.

Ninja Hello Kitty is FIERCE!

I found this awesome vegan shop called Violet Sweet Shoppe near University Village who created this Ninja Hello Kitty cake for us. I have to admit, fondant Ninja Hello Kitty was *almost* too cute to eat.

The owner even made individual fondant ninja throwing stars for each of the cupcakes. HOW ADORABLE ARE THEY?!

We decorated the backyard as well with some red and black paper lanterns. I folded all the papers in half, then drew lines for where to cut the lantern slits. It was a really easy craft the boys did themselves, and my husband helped them hang it up with crepe paper.

Ninja station! Masks, throwing stars, and focus paddles!

I made the ninja masks out of felt, and sewed an elastic hairband so the kids could put it on themselves (a package of 6 for $1 at the dollar store!) I made half the masks Ninja Hello Kitty masks, and the other half regular Ninja masks for the party ninjas to choose amongst. It also served as a very handy take home party favor.

The other party favor we had were ninja stars, which we folded the night before. Upon completion of the Ninja Obstacle Course, each ninja-in-training received their choice of two ninja stars as a job well done!

We had quite the rainbow to choose from, so everyone was happy.  I figured since they were made of paper, they would make the least amount of damage when being thrown.

One of the other ninja training courses was the “focus skills” portion. All the kids had to balance a balloon on a plate. For the younger kids, I put a big paper plate taped to a long bamboo skewer, and they just had to hold their balloon on their plate without it falling off. For the older kids, I taped a smaller, cake sized plate to a popsicle stick. For them, they had to count how many times they could bounce a balloon up and down without the balloon falling. Fun for all age groups! (shout out to G.McKinley for the awesome picture!)

We also played a game of “Sensei Says” (like Simon Says), since all good ninjas need to have good listening skills. (shout out to M. Madigan for providing the upcoming awesome pictures!)

Then came the grand finale that everyone was waiting for – Ninja Obstacle Course! The kids first had to swing across the rope swing.

Then, they had to be agile and quick and jump over the logs.

Finally, they climbed through a tunnel, did some monkey bars, and slide down the slide of our play set. The obstacle course was pretty much the highlight of the party, the kids continued to go around and do their favorite part of the course over and over again.

At the end of the day, my son enjoyed his Ninja Hello Kitty party and obstacle course very much, and I’m glad that we were able to fulfill his birthday party dream for him. Plus, he sincerely enjoyed his cupcake.

Happy Fifth Birthday, my fierce Ninja Hello Kitty boy!

  2. Very cute and a nice spin on the usual ninja theme. We just did a girl’s ninja party for my 4yr old last month (I haven’t had a chance to post it yet) & did colored ninja stars too. Thanks for linking to the Craftastic Monday party at Sew Can Do!
