30 Blogs with Tips for Throwing a Jungle Safari Themed Birthday Party

November 13th, 2013 by admin

Do you have a ‘wild’ child that loves to ‘swing’ from the chandeliers? Then consider throwing a jungle safari party where he will fit right in! The invitations can be passports inviting guests to travel to Africa and go on a safari with the birthday child. For decorations, take your inspiration from the jungle itself and use vines and leaves instead of streamers, and incorporate lots of animal prints. The kids will love going on a scavenger safari hunt looking for animals, and you can even help the kids make their own binoculars to help them search. Once the kids wear themselves out with the crafts and games, feed them animal themed food and cake. Wrap up your African adventure by giving your little explorers a jungle themed favor bag to take home. These 30 blogs will not only provide ideas for the party, but they will explain how you can do it.


If you are going to make your own invitations, keep in mind the plethora of animal print craft items that are available now. Use animal print paper or duct tape if you want to make a simple invitation to mail out to your guests. If you don’t have time to make the invitations yourself, order them or print them out on your computer. Take a look at these five blogs to get ideas for creating the perfect jungle invitation.


Drag out all of the stuffed animals in the kids’ bedrooms and use them in your decorating. Any animal that you would find in Africa will tie in nicely to your theme. Decorate the ceilings with strips of brown paper that have been scrunched up like vines and attach some green leaves here and there. Use animal print anywhere you can to tie in the jungle safari theme. You’ll find more decorating ideas in these five blogs.


Keeping the kids busy during the party is the most important element in throwing a memorable event. You can modify pin the tail on the donkey to pin the tail on the tiger. Throw in a craft that will tie into the theme, like creating binoculars out of cardboard tubes. Let the kids use their newly made binoculars to find animals around the house or in the yard.

There are many animal themed goodies that you can buy commercially, so you don’t have to make everything yourself if you don’t want to. Sometimes it’s smarter to save some time and take some help from the store or friends. You can make the most ordinary thing special by giving it a creative jungle name, like cutting bananas in half and calling them monkey bites. Look at the pictures in these blogs to get menu ideas for your party.


What’s a birthday party without cake? A jungle theme lends itself to some colorful cake ideas, which is evident by the cakes featured in these five blogs. Ask your child what he wants his cake to look like. If you feel up to the task, try your hand at making your own cake shaped like a monkey or another safari animal. If not, there are plenty of bakeries that can create a cake to suit your party.
