Dress like a Ninja

Ninjas often dress in black so they can easily fit in with the background.

  • Dress in black from head-to-toe.
  • Make your own ninja mask.
    1. Pull a shirt over your head stopping above the ears and nose.
    2. Pull the back of the shirt over the top of the head.
    3. Pull the sleeves behind the neck and head and tie together.
    4. Add an extra cloth or bandana around the head to personalize your mask.
