This instructable was made because I got a request to build a ninja. This is my original design and idea. This ninja is ready for his first back to school mission! Follow through and I will show you how to make a ninja that can be used for playing, Halloween, school bag, back pack, school craft project, or what ever you want it for. I am giving away 6  (3 month pro-membership coupons) for the first 6 members who post a picture of their ninja inspired project.  I am also giving away a grander prize for the best project.

Step 1: Supplies

1 scrap Styrofoam for stand
1 Small piece of cardboard for head
Wiggly eyes
Very thin ribbon or cord for Obi belt
Paper clip, safety pin, clothes pin or alligator clip if you want to attach the ninja to clothing, hats, or whatever
1 Black felt square for suit and head gear or black construction paper
2 regular size and 3 small size Popsicle sticks, cardboard, plastic spoon, fork, or knife.
Paper for making ninja suit pattern 

Step 2: Tools

Craft glue or hot glue and gun
Black permanent marker
2 Sewing pins
Small lid for circle pattern I used a sprinkles lid
Ink pen or pencil for marking.
Cardboard or something to protect work surface

Step 3: Color

​Color the entire surface of the Popsicle sticks; front back and sides with the permanent marker pen.


Step 4: Glue the Body

Step 5: Head

Mark and cut 1 round disk from the cardboard using the lid for a pattern.
Using the round cardboard cut out 1 circle from the felt, this will cover the cardboard circle to make the face.
Glue these pieces together.
Glue them to the neck of the Ninja.
Cut out the head gear as shown for the cap.
Glue this to the head.
Cut a thin piece of felt for the eye band.
Glue it to the face.
Glue the eyes on.

Step 6: Ninja Suit

This is what we are making next: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_a_ninja_suit_called
Shinobi Shōzoku, a dark-colored keikogi clothing, worn by practitioners of the Japenese Martial Art of Ninjutsu.
The split-toed boots and socks are called tabi. 

Lay the ninja over the paper and trace the suit pattern.
Remove the ninja and fill in the areas for the neck, sleeve, arms, and ankle as shown.
Cut out the pattern.
Check for the fit.
Make necessary adjustments.
Pin the pattern to the felt fabric and cut out the suit.
Check for fit and make necessary adjustments, by carefully trimming with scissors.
Glue the suit to the ninja.


Step 7: Obi Belt

An Obi belt to indicate the wearer's level of kyu or dan grade may also be worn.

Cut a small piece of the cord and tie it around the ninja's waist.

Step 8: Stand

Cut a stand from  Styrofoam the size you want.
Set the ninja on the foam and mark the holes for his feet to go into.
Take the scissors point and make the foot holes.

Step 9: Play Hard

Your ninja is ready for his mission!
