Is your little one fascinated by animals? If so, planning an animal-themed birthday party is a guaranteed way to make their day extra special. Here are some fun food and activity ideas to help make your party enjoyable.
A customized approach is the best way to go when choosing invitations that match your theme perfectly. Owl party invitations make an adorable choice for any animal-themed party. If your child wants the party gifts to be animal-themed as well, it is ok to mention this preference directly on the bottom of the invitation.
Creating animal finger puppets is a fun activity that can get everyone involved in the party festivities. Depending on the pattern you use, this activity can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. The easiest finger puppets to make are made out of paper and simply need to be colored, cut out and stapled or taped in the back to create a small circle that fits on little fingers. Once all of the finger puppets have been made, have the kids put on a puppet show.
If there is one thing you should know about kids before throwing a party, it is that they are perpetually hungry. Help satisfy their craving for snacks by serving wormy dirt cup desserts. To make these desserts, place a mixture of chocolate pudding and cookie crumbs in the bottom of a cup (Oreo crumbs work well because they don’t get soggy very easily). Place gummy worms throughout the cookie pudding and let the kids dig into their wormy “dirt”.
Present the birthday boy or girl with fun, animal-themed presents wrapped in custom animal-themed wrapping paper. Ideas include oversized stuffed safari animals, zoo animal lunch boxes, animal-shaped purses and tickets to your local zoo.
Try one or all of these fun ideas at your child’s upcoming birthday party. They are all easy and inexpensive to try, but they can transform an ordinary party into a young animal lover’s dream come true.
"Beautiful card and I'm always impressed with the turn around time of Tiny Prints. So wonderful for a busy mother who is running behind on birthday planning"
"We were very pleased with our invitations! The cards were very professional looking and well made! If we ever need paper goods this is the place!"
"I chose to use this card for my son's high school graduation party invitation. I wanted a patriotic color palette since he is joining the military. I felt this was a more mature and elegant option than most graduation designs. I used the same fonts and colors as the example. I was able to add his senior picture to the back. This card turned out beautiful as do all that I order from Tiny Prints!"
"The quality of paper used, the colors, and the style helped make this invite for my little guys 4th birthday party too perfect. It captures his sweet and funny personality to a T. You always deliver perfection tiny prints, thanks!"
"The invitation was perfect for our Memorial Day/birthday celebration, because of the subtle patriotic theme. I changed the font style, and wasn't overly happy with my choice when I received the finished product. I should have stuck to their default font recommendation for this invitation."
