Although many people don’t consider it a priority, creating a video gaming station is a great idea for a birthday party. Kids love video games and there is no denying it. They should have fun at their birthday party!

However, it’s good to either restrict the play time for each player or encourage a good rotation so that everyone gets to play. A TMNT video game station is easy to set up, as well. All you need is a television, a video game console and a Ninja Turtles game. Don’t forget to arrange plenty of chairs for the spectators.

If there are many kids at the party, it’s best to have several activities for them to enjoy. Typically there will be a small group of kids at each activity area.

Another great idea is to play Ninja Turtle movies or animated series on TV. You can either set this up as a smaller group activity or leave it playing in the background so that people who are interested can watch. There are several Ninja Turtle movies for you to choose from. You could play a couple of them on TV and keep them on repeat.

Another alternative is to set a certain time for the movie where all kids can watch together. However, it’s preferable to let the kids choose what they want to do to ensure that all of them are having fun.

8. Hand Out Ninja Turtles Play Weapons
