But as the day approached I felt more and more bothered by the complete lack of creativity that I was expending this year. Last year, if you remember, we did an Explorer party at the local nature center. I made explorer notebooks for each kid, explorer packs, the invites were in an itinerary format, and they got to touch a snake. I mean how cool is that? So I panicked.

He wanted these that I had made for the class Christmas party-
abominable snowman cake pops
But I love a well done theme party....
So ninja's it was.
For a little extra ninja fun- his lunch was ambushed too.
Yup- ninja sunbutter and jelly sandwiches. Love those candy eyes.
The idea was that the kids would show up to the party and I'd tell them that to earn their ninja masks, they had to do ninja training on the tramps. Cool idea, right? Yeah- they're 6 &7 year old boys. They played dodgeball the whole time and had a blast.
So much for the theme, but it was still the "best birthday party ever!". So I guess I'm satisfied.
