Cowabunga Cuisine: TMNT Treats & Eats
What’s a party without food, right? For your TMNT baby shower, think “turtle-ly” delicious treats! Consider creating a pizza bar with various toppings, paying homage to the turtles’ favorite food.
You can also make cupcakes adorned with TMNT logos or faces of your favorite heroes in a half shell. Don’t forget the green punch or mocktails for that ooze-inspired touch.

Add sewer grate tablecloths, ninja-inspired centerpieces, and life-size cutouts of the TMNT crew. Consider hanging ninja masks or creating a “sewer wall” photo booth for some epic selfies.

- Sewer Water Drinks Station: Create a drinks station using a large container or dispenser filled with green punch or a beverage of your choice. Label it as “Sewer Water” or “Mutagen Juice” for a fun touch.
TMNT-Themed Party Activities for Shell-Awesome Fun
Keep your guests entertained with activities inspired by the ninja heroes! How about a DIY mask-making station where guests can create their own ninja masks?

Turtle-Rific Costumes: Dressing the Part
Encourage your guests to channel their inner turtles or favorite characters by wearing TMNT-themed attire. Consider providing bandanas, masks, or turtle shell backpacks as party favors.
A baby shower isn’t complete without the mom-to-be looking the part—maybe a ninja turtle maternity shirt or a cute turtle-inspired hairband!
For party favors at your Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles baby shower, think “turtley” awesome gifts that’ll leave your guests feeling like they’ve been part of the TMNT team!
