For our son’s 5th birthday, we decided to throw him a Ninja/Asian themed celebration to highlight his love of Kung Fu & Ninjas! All of the decorations, favors and food were made by my Husband and I. We love entertaining, so we tend to really get into our kids’ birthdays! I included some “in progress” craft photos too, enjoy!
