Ninja Themed Day

ninja activities

Keep the kids busy and active the whole day with our Ninja Themed Day!
Let’s be real, what child does not love ninjas?
Use these ideas to create a ‘ninja training’ program!

Obstacle course

Use household items to create a fun obstacle course. Have them crawl under a chair tunnel, jump over their chair, throw toys into their toybox, egg and spoon race portion and attempt to complete a maze constructed of string / toilet paper!

Want to take it up a notch? Add some cooperation skills and team building to it by having one child blindfolded, the kids then need to work together to safely navigate the obstacle course!

Activity sheets

Calm it down a bit by giving the children some fun activity sheets to work on!
