The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are very popular characters that a few generations have grown up watching. It is hard to find anyone who doesn’t love the 4 green heroes, especially boys; so it’s no wonder that they are a very popular theme for a kid’s birthday party. If you want to pull off the ultimate Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed birthday party, it really isn’t too difficult. Below are a few ideas to help you get everything perfect for each part of the birthday party.
When decorating for your Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles birthday party, the first thing that comes to mind is turtles. You can decorate all over the place using their 4 iconic faces, and you can include Master Splinter in the mix as well. The main color choice for your decorations should of course be green and everything else should fall into place nicely. For added flair, you can add some green colored sparklers to really make a statement.
For the birthday cake, you should consider doing it in the shape and colors of the birthday boy/girl’s favorite ninja turtle. If you are feeling very elaborate, one of the coolest designs I’ve seen is to make 4 spherical cakes with green food coloring, create fondant bandanas to use as each turtle’s mask, and stack them vertically using skewers to represent the whole ninja turtles posse (see photo above). This is a time-intensive birthday cake build, but it will certainly make for lasting memories.
The party favors for your Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles birthday party theme should be just as turtle-oriented as the rest of the party. A favorite among kids is to have lots of balloon swords so the little ones can act out their ninja skills in a safe way. Other great edible party favors include cookies shaped and decorated like pizzas, little turtle tubes filled with green jelly beans, and cookie pops that look like suckers shaped like a turtle’s head but are actually a cookie underneath. Edible party favors are always a great choice because the kids will absolutely love them. Similarly, you can go with an interactive favor. Though it’s a bit off-theme, birthday sparklers are a great way to keep the kids entertained. Best of all, it will give you some valuable cleanup time!
Though there aren’t any stiff rules about what type of food to serve at your TMNT themed birthday party, most people who are familiar with the cartoon know that the turtles have an obsession with pizza. You would be hard-pressed to find a more appropriate type of food to serve at a TMNT party, and it is almost a certainty that everyone will love it.
Throwing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed birthday party will be one of the most fun and memorable experiences of your child’s life. Most people would agree that their birthday parties were some of the most memorable events they remember from when they were young, so making it as special as possible for your son or daughter can be a big deal. Just take some advice from the tips above and all the kids at your party are sure to be saying Cowabunga!
