Zoo/Jungle Party Ideas!
A great theme and fantastic scope for decoration and fun games. Would suit any age.
Here are some ideas to help you plan your next Zoo/Jungle themed party
Cut a banana shape out of card stock for a monkey party
Cut animal faces out of cardstock and stick on googly eyes – See you at the Jungle party!
Include a pair of binoculars, a map or an adventure accessory so they know they will be exploring at the party
Have some jungle music playing in the background
Hang green crepe streamers from the ceiling as Vines. Attach some monkeys if you can.
Have a Jungle photo prop out for photo opportunities
Make Trees out of cardboard, and hang them around the party room – Add some greenery to give a jungle feel
Hire a fog machine – The fog will add a real jungle atmosphere!
Make labels for food such as Snakes Eyes (grapes), dried ants (craisons) Beetle wings (chips) Monkey juice (chocolate milk) Crocodile teeth (dried apples)
Chocolate covered bananas and candy bananas are a must for a monkey party
Green and Brown M&M’s
Games and Crafts
A jungle treasure hunt. Make maps and clues, hand out compasses and binoculars to get the kids excited about being explorers! Before you start your jungle hunt, hand out malaria pills (jellybeans) to make sure your explorers are safe! If you live in a bush setting, this will be even better – Make sure to dot around plush animals in the leaves and bush for the kids to find. You could search for a family of monkeys or a rare white tiger!
Pin the tail on the animal – Draw or blow up a picture of an animal and make some tails for pinning.
Monkey in the Middle
Have some play dough and animal cutters out, or colouring in pages for the kids to do between games or at the beginning and end of the party
Make Sock puppets out of old socks, googly eyes and lots of craft things
Follow the Jungle Leader
Tarzan Says (like Simon Says)
Guess the animal noise – Either tape some animal noises, or make them yourself! The kids need to guess which animal it is.
Banana relay – In teams, the children need to run with a banana between their knees, pass it to the next person using no hands and they run back – First team all finished wins!
