-a bag of black helium balloons
-glow sticks (optional)
-Nerf guns or ping pong balls
Step 1: Blow up balloons.
Step 2: Create your own ninja masks by cutting a face-shape and eye holes in the white felt.
Step 3: Tape the mask onto your balloon.
For glow in the dark fun: Turn to the dark side by inserting active glow sticks into the balloons before inflating. Then, turn out the lights and let the ninja hunt begin!
The game: Enlist leftover party balloons into a hit squad of stealth ninjas. Scatter your ninjas throughout the house and let your children loose armed with Nerf guns or ping pong balls.
Tip: Helium balloons tied or weighted down work best for an army of floating ninjas but sticks can help your balloon ninjas to peer out from bookcases and sofa backs.
