Cut down your party costs by making your party favors part of the party games. This Ninja Turtle Pizza Activity Box is an awesome party favor filled with fun turtle-themed goodies as well as important pieces for party games. Each box is easily customizable per child and makes dividing into teams (by Turtle color) so easy!
What’s in the Box
- 12″ X 12″ X 2″ Pizza Box
Plain white Pizza Boxes can be purchased online in larger quantities (usually 50 per case) but you’ll have to also add cost for shipping. We were fortunate to find a local pizza place who would sell us the pizza boxes we needed for the party and just taped the sides to make them a little more sturdy. To keep the teams straight (and even) we wrote each guests name on the side of the box.
Remember a local pizza chain will be unlikely to sell their boxes to you if they have their company branding on the box.
- Ninja Turtle Face Mask, Arm Bands & Leg Bands
Everybody gets to be a Ninja Turtle with this really simple no-sew costume idea. We enclosed a felt turtle mask, two arm bands, and two leg bands into a regular Ziploc Sandwich bag with a black and white 6.5″ X 4″ label stapled to the top. The colored masks also doubled to identify teams for games.

- Ninja Turtle Tattoos
- Ninja Turtle Puzzle
Dollar stores and the Target $1 bins are a great place to find themed goodies. This component could have easily been swapped out for another themed party take-home.
- Ninja Turtle Gummies
I’m fairly certain this was the most important component of the Pizza Activity Box. Everyone was MOST concerned about where their gummies were and when they could eat them. (Figures!)
- Foam Nunchucks
The Foam Nunchucks were a really fun addition to the activity box and were used extensively for one of the party games. Plus they are just really fun to play with.

Welcome, Thank You & Party Instructions
With any of our take homes I like to include a welcome, thank you, and short order of events for guests to follow. We did this by including a BXW themed insert glued to the lid of the Pizza Box. In case you’d prefer not to zoom this next photo to a thousand percent I’ll include the text we used below:
Welcome to the party Dudes & Dudettes!
- Join the Turtles
Wear your arm bands and masks with pride my friends!
- Ninja Training
Learn the ways of the Ninja from Master Splinter (aka games hosted by Elijah’s parents).

What’s a party without all your favorite turtle friends?
