My Nephew’s birthday is coming up and he LOVES ninjas. Luckily I am an expert ninja peg maker. I can crank these guys out fast with the right kind of music and some caffeine. They are SUPER fun and cute too!
The box on the other hand was a bit of a challenge. I bought an unfinished box from the craft store and painted it blue and mod podged a few ninja pictures to the cover. I think if I attempt this type of craft again in the future that requires a box I will have to track down a slider one. I am not much of a fan of the ones that open with hinges as they seem pretty frail for a children’s toy.
Here is what I started with minus about 20 pegs I added later………..
Here are a few of my ninja friends……….
I added another 20 after this picture since these did not fill up the box enough for my liking.
Here is a picture of all of the ninja’s organized in their box………
I added a few “King Me” pedestals and made sure there were 12 of each color in case he wants to turn this into a checker game down the road.
The finished product……….
I hope he enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it!
