More Ninjagos

Q-ster attended the Ninjago-themed birthday party of a little friend at a local taekwondo studio last weekend. His pal’s mom is brilliantly creative.

Candy “sushi” made from rice krispy treats, Swedish fish, and fruit-rollups-by-the foot

Ninjago mini-fig piñata. This was extremely well engineered, so after two rounds through the children and no major puncture, the parents had to take a turn. Q-ster was proud of my two solid whacks.

Q-ster’s illustration of the Ninjago Kai character on the card he made for the birthday boy.

The studio was clever and ended the taekwondo lesson with a chance to smash a board with an “axe kick.” I think we’re signing up for lessons. Next month, Buster will be old enough to take class too, so we’re going to need to decide whether or not it’s wise to have battle trained children in the house.

Ha! TKD is awesome, and not using it outside of class or unless they're being attacked is an integral part of the teaching, so I wouldn't worry about it. I was terribly sad when my kiddo decided to stop taking it, because the Master would do things like take away kids' belts if he heard them backtalking their parents. It's ALL ABOUT respect. :)

Brilliant. I might have to steal all these ideas for Jack's birthday.

That sushi is awesome, and the cake pops (?) too! My son just settled on a karate birthday party yesterday (at the place he takes lessons).

Using fruit-rollups for the sushi is so clever, and the gummy fish too.

That is one ADORABLE party.

I think I want some of that "sushi".
