Ninjago party

Kenny went through a few different ideas of party themes before settling on Ninjago this year. The reality is the kid loves anything Lego, but Ninjago has been his favorite lately. We had lots of fun treats for this party so I literally spent every night for about two months creating stuff, placing it in the freezer and then doing it again. I stack everything up in the freezer and then take it out the night before so it's like a magic preparation the night before. 

Kenny and Ellie doing their ninja moves.
Amazing Grandma Patty made every one of those bandannas by hand and colored all the Chinese words and red sun. It says "Happy Birthday" in Chinese (or at least we think so, according to Google Translate).
I got the idea for the Kruncha treats from Wants and Wishes design. Nobody thought they looked like Kruncha, but they appreciated the effort ;).
The place settings for each kid
Inspiration for edamame and candy sushi was from Anders Ruff
We made lots and lots of ninja cookies for everyone
I saw lots and lots of different versions of the Sensei Wu cake out there, but finally decided on making the base cake with chocolate covered oreos on top and then the minifigure out of chocolate with the lego minifigure mold like these ones.
Nunchucks...aka chocolate covered pretzels
Also inspired from Wants and Wishes design. My advice is to not make these for an outdoor party...they melt super fast in the sun
More cookie details
. The manager of Pei Wei was kind enough to donate all the fortune cookies for me to dip in chocolate and chopsticks to our cause!
All the chocolate legos started melting pretty quickly in the sun, but at least we got a picture of the rice (krispies) cakes!
Scrumptious cake pops are a must to my kids at their birthday parties

Gearing up all the kids with headbands and swords for the Ninjago battles. Turns out releasing 24 kids into a giant bounce house with plastic weapons wasn't a great idea.
Kenny had such a great time.
Cutting the cake and friend fun again!
