Chinese take-out containers filled with fortune cookies, ninja figures, and ninja headbands are sure to delight all of your little grasshoppers. For kids karate party activities, let the little ninjas try their hands (and feet!) at these fun party games:

  • Board Breaking: Give the kids balsa wood and foam strips to karate chop and kick through.

  • High Kicking Contest: Draw chalk lines at varying heights on poster board, and award a prize to the child that can kick the highest. (To measure the kicks, just look to see where the chalk is erased or smudged.)

  • Chinese Paper Lantern Piñata: Give each child a Chinese paper lantern filled with candy and trinkets. Hang the lanterns and let the children kick them until the treats spill out.

No martial arts birthday party would be complete without chopstick-style party food. Order take-out from your favorite Asian restaurant and set up a buffet complete with chopsticks and fortune cookies.

For dessert, serve the birthday boy or girl a "Ghi Cake". To make, bake a rectangular cake and slice a V-shaped wedge from the middle for a neck hole, then shape the cake's sides to resemble arms. Ice the cake white and add a strip of chocolate frosting at the beltline.
