Ninja Birthday Party Entertainment Ideas
When you have a ton of kids at your home and you are trying to keep them from breaking everything in your house, it really helps to have a few Ninja birthday party game ideas to keep them occupied. Whether you provide the games or hire real ninjas to entertain at your birthday party, the kids will need something to keep them busy.
Ninja Party Game Ideas
There are tons of games to have your children do at a party that are Ninja themed. Most of these require little or no extra pieces and can be done almost anywhere.
Go Ninja, Go Ninja, STOP
Similar to Stop and Go, one master ninja instructor has all the ninjas start on one side of the play area and try to get to the other side. When the instructor yells “stop” the children have to jump to a ninja pose and stay still. If they are caught, they have to go back to the beginning.
Ninja Egg Toss
This teaches the children that they need to be calm and careful when they are Ninja, being sure to control their power and force. Start them close and slowly move them away from each other. The team that is farthest apart gets a Ninja seal of approval. Instead of eggs, consider using water balloons.
Ninja wood breaking
Use thin strips of balsa wood and have children take turns chopping the wood in two with their hands. Be careful that the eager ones do not hurt themselves on whatever the support is for the blocks. As long as they hit the block in the middle it should be fine. You can also have an adult hold it so that there isn’t a way to get hurt. Adults can also help by “flexing” the wood or even breaking it for them for the younger ones.
Hire a professional Ninja!
You might be surprised at just how affordable it can be to have your very own Birthday Party Ninja Entertainer at your next event. They can be great for photo opportunities, Ninja demonstrations, teaching the way of the Ninja, and even offering up to two hours of hands on Ninja themed entertainment for your birthday party guests. They can even help plan other Ninja party activities if you ask. You can also hire other professionals too!
