watch out for Ninja's!

During the summer a bunch of local theatres offer Summer Kids Clubs, where they show previously released kids movies for a dollar or two a ticket Harkins, Cinemark, & AMC (they might have it where you live) - anyway, it's movies like Shrek the Third, Bee Movie, Flushed Away, etc. This weeks movie was the cartoon version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & I almost didn't take them because I didn't think they would really be into it.
As you can see from the pictures, I am wrong. We went to Target & they couldn't stop fighting in the aisles. They wanted swords so I bought them these little softee baseball bats in the dollar section. Then when we came home they were determined I could make them masks. So I made them masks & capes out of old t-shirts, you can check out the SSC blog where I explain how I did it in 6 easy steps.
Needless to say - it provided a fun afternoon & my kids (and their friend Seth) have been wearing the capes daily since we saw the movie. All it took was a couple hours on the sewing machine & "inja's" (as Paige thinks they are properly called) were born.
