Invite your ninjas to take part in some super-stealthy games, then follow it up with sweet treats and a super cool fortune-cookie favor.
Give the ninjas some cool staffs for fun and games.
Make ninja staffs with PVC pipe, string and gray-colored foam tubing insulation, and use the ninja staffs in a series of games, including a relay race.
Add ninja stars to make cutting edge desserts. Cut 5-inch squares from thin kraft paper. You will need two squares per star. Fold into an origami throwing star. Place the stars into cupcakes, making them look a bit haphazard like they were "thrown" in.
A fortune cookie filled with treats makes a fun favor.
TO MAKE: You will need one 12x12 piece of tan craft foam per favor. Cut foam into an 11-inch circle. Fold the circle in half without creasing the long edge. At the center of the folded circle, push inward to bring the ends together, creating a slight vertical crease. Unfold and place super-sticky, double-sided tape or hot glue just to the side of the vertical crease. Bring the ends back together and secure. Gently lift and smooth the rounded edges (opposite to the fold) to create a nice fortune cookie shape. Fill with a few toys and goodies. Don't forget to include a fortune, of course!

Welcome guests with this top-secret ninja sign.
TO MAKE: Most home improvement stores sell pre-cut wood stakes as bundles or individually. For this project you will need one bundle (12 pieces) of 17.5-inch wood stakes and two individual 36-inch stakes. Lay the two longer stakes vertically on your work surface, with the pointed sides down and approximately 6-8 inches apart from each other. Using hot glue, affix the shorter stakes horizontally alternating the point from the right to left side. Download large number stencils (available in 0-9) and print on 11x17 paper. Using a craft knife, cut out the inner parts of the number to create a stencil. Secure to the center of the glued wood sign and carefully spray paint.
