Activities for Night of the Ninjas

  • Create a ninja sword, cutting the shapes of a short, straight, single-edged blade and straight hilt out of posterboard. Wrap the blade in aluminum foil and paint the hilt to achieve desired effects.
  • Have them cut out ninja shapes and mount them on sticks to create shadow puppets for a “behind-the-sheets” demonstration of how these “shadow warriors” slid in nature’s darkness. Or let them color the figure for a fun class puppet show.Curriculum:
