How to Throw a Safari Birthday Party
Little ones seem to love animals of all kinds, and safari animals like lions, elephants and zebras are some of the most loved. Plan your little one’s birthday around the animals they enjoy most with a safari birthday party!
Decorate your party space with safari green and tropical leaves! Adhere a few different types of tropical leaves to the wall to create a fun backdrop. Monstera Deliciosa, Palm and Philodendron leaves are all perfect for this display.
Go green in other areas of your decor as well. Tropical plants down the center of the table make your space feel like the jungle, and green veggies, drinks and other decor will bring this safari birthday party to life!
A Roaring Good Time
Have fun with your food and decor for this safari birthday party too.
Plan some games and activities for the little ones to do while they’re there. Create cute scavenger hunt cards and have wooden colored pencils for them to mark off safari inspired items that they see throughout the party – anything from animals and certain leaves to food and gifts.
Set up a craft area where party guests can create binoculars out of cardboard tubes. Cover each tube with construction paper, glue two tubes together and add a string for perfect safari fun. For a little extra fun, have them color their construction paper before you add it to the tube.
Let the little ones stomp around with elephant feet! Add strings and elephant toes to large tin cans and the kiddos can pretend like they’re safari giants in the backyard.
Your food can be safari themed as well! A veggie tray shaped like a lion, themed snacks for guests to munch on and animal cookies for the kids to play with and eat are all great food choices for your safari party.
A safari birthday party can be full of fun activities and treats when you take a little time to plan it out.
