How to Throw a Great Martial Arts Theme Birthday Party
Some martial arts schools host birthday parties on certain days of the week and some can be very affordable. Ask the martial arts school your child attends if they offer birthday parties and what activities they provide. Depending on the school, you may need to bring the martial arts party supplies, birthday cake, beverages, party favors and any decorations for the party.
Karate schools can cover fun activities for birthday parties such as an introductory martial arts lesson and teaching the kids a few martial arts techniques. Having the karate theme party at a karate school also helps if you are worried about space or safety with so many children participating in the fun. However, if you'd like to hold the party at your house, there are great activities you can incorporate into the party. During the party rent a bouncy ring, then have the kids come in karate costumes and hold competitions. Another idea is to hire a martial arts instructor or an advanced high school student for an hour to teach the children. They can show a few of the basic moves or a couple of self-defense techniques.
Is That a Birthday Cake or a "Gi" on the Table?
Being creative with the cake can build excitement among the children when they arrive. Cake decorators are able to either shape the cake in a karate theme such as a "gi", the martial arts uniform, or can create pictures on a flat cake. If you are feeling adventurous, you can purchase the cake mix yourself and make a black belt or a karate shirt. Then decorate the cake with martial arts party supplies like little rubber ninja toys or specific martial artists your child likes.
Karate Theme Decorations – Picking the Right Martial Arts Party Supplies
When deciding on martial arts party supplies use colors that fit the theme of the party. Red, white, black, yellow, and blue are a few that work well for a martial arts theme. Pick two or three colors for your party and then purchase streamers in that color and a big banner that says "Happy Birthday".
Then get a ninja birthday party pack that includes ninja plates, cups and napkins. As well as a colored table cloth to go with the colors you have chosen for your karate theme. In the middle of your table place a few ninja birthday helium balloon. Kids will love these martial arts party supplies.
Three Best Ninja Birthday Party Activities For Children
Planning a few activities is essential when throwing any kids party. Here are a few ideas to get your started to entertain all your ninja's.
1. Build an obstacle course.
Throughout your yard, garage or house put up obstacles that have the kids jumping, crawling or maneuvering through. They can compete and earn prizes or just go through the course for the joy of the challenge.
2. Sensei Freeze Tag.
Same rules apply as with the favorite freeze tag, but the student must avoid being tagged by their instructor or sensei.
3. Karate Pinata.
You can find a karate pinata in the shape of a warrior and some of them talk whenever they are hit.
Karate Theme Party Favors
When each child arrives at the karate theme party give them a temporary dragon tattoo and a karate headband. Then also hand them a Chinese food container with all of their goodies such as karate stickers, martial arts jelly bracelets or a yin yang necklace. For a unique twist you can include personalized fortune cookies that say "Andy – Thanks for coming to Tom's Karate Training School Party" or something special for each child that RSVP'd and attended.
Hosting a karate theme birthday party is the best type of party for a child who is interested in Kung Fu, Taekwondo or Judo. They get to celebrate their birthday with a sport they love and also get to show their friends all the martial arts techniques they have learned. There is no way to go wrong with one of these theme parties.
