Mikey, Leo, Raph, and Donny make regular appearances during play time in my home. Our Ninja Turtle friends need only a colored bandana and paper towel roll nunchucks to come to life before they’re off battling Shredder. With Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III now available on Netflix, I thought it was a perfect time to get creative with our viewing party treat.
