When my kids ask for character birthday parties, I like to blend a few special store bought items with a couple homemade touches. (Like this Spiderman party.) Today I’m sharing a Modern Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party we created. I ordered this party pack from Target. It included all the basics – plates, cups, napkins, balloons, candles, etc. I also got a few turtle shells for the kids to dress up in and some other ninja accessories (like these) for them to play with. Then, I did a few simple DIYs to tie the party together. I picked up red, orange, purple and blue felt to make ninja masks for everyone to wear during the party. I made some easy homemade favor bags that we filled with lots of green prizes and treats. For games I made some silver ninja stars for a game where the kids had to throw them into a bucket and a homemade Pin the Turtle on the Pizza. Altogether, this party took less than an afternoon to pull together.

I’m still a huge fan of sending out paper invitations. I love all these cute designs from Tiny Prints. Digital printing is a great way to save time & money when I’m planning a party. Tiny Prints has a ton of great designs to choose from and once you order, they arrive in the mail very fast. Before my kids head back to school (so soon!) I think it would be fun to personalize their notebooks and order a few classroom tags for all their supplies. Here are a few of my favorite supplies in case you want to plan your own party before summer ends:
