Ideas for a Karate picnic

Post by Smiletime on Wed Aug 24, 2011 9:11 am

I am painting at a Karate picnic this weekend. I am still in the learning stage and don't have a huge number of designs yet. Does anyone have any ideas of what might be popular at a karate function? I am real good at butterflies and kitties, but I don't think the boys will be asking for many of those. I did learn a really cool spider from FABA so I have that one ready, and I am trying to get my daughter to let me practice Spiderman on her, but she isn't cooperating. Any pics or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I did a couple semit karate themed ones at my last birthday. A tiger with a green bandana cuz he was a green belt. The panda def needs work I was going from memory. But my boyfriend really liked the bamboo added.

I would look up kung fu panda pics. I know it's not karate, but kids <3 it.
There might also be requests for ninjas... But instead of painting everyone's faces black, haha, you can suggest shuriken (throwing stars) for cheeks?
Also, teenage mutant ninja turtles! I dunno if they're still popular, I hope so. ;-;
Good luck!

Idea! Shuriken on the backs of hands, they'll have a blast pretending to throw them at each other!

Also be ready with the regular boy stuff, snakes, dragons, monsters. Not all of them will want the themed stuff.

It might be cool to do a sunset and then a karate person on top doing a kick. Maybe something from the "new karate kid" movie.

Good Luck Smile

Thank you for all the ideas. The picnic was a huge success. I don't know why I was worried. All the girls wanted "rainbow neon butterfly" or pink butterfly and the boys wanted a spider or super hero. I also did a couple puppies. No karate requests at all.

LOL! Yup, the parents will want it themed & the kids just want the usual stuff. If the adults stick to their gun & say only paint ______, it usually ends up w/ sad kids. I did a dinosaur party where the mom would not let anyone get anything NOT dinosaur. One little girl wanted to be a princess so bad she cried. I tried to make it a princess dinosaur w/ flowers, etc, but she wouldn't have it.
