Monkeyin' Around Birthday Party Decorations, Supplies, and Party Ideas
Need some more decorating or food ideas?
- Cut coconut, banana, pineapple, and other tropical fruit shapes out of colorful construction paper. Place them on the driveway to lead your monkey birthday party guests to the front door.
- Put some green paper streamers around your trees, indoors or out, as if they're "jungle vines."
- Make a sign that says "Welcome Monkeys!" and stick it near the door!
- Invite your monkey birthday party guests to a "transformation station" where you turn them into monkeys by applying face paints, removable tattoos, clip-on tails, and providing various other accessories.
- "Jungle Mix" - for this monkey birthday party recipe, you'll need dried banana chips, nuts, grated or shredded coconut, chocolate chips, and other dried fruits and nuts of your choice. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix them, then place portions of the snack into cups or small Ziploc bags for the kids to snack on between the games.
- "Monkey Meal" - peel a banana and put it on a hotdog bun, then spread peanut butter on the bun and add a bit of honey for a delicious meal!
- Banana Splits, anyone?
Now lets "Monkey Around" with some party favors and games for your wild little monkey guests?
- Give out items such as bean bags, sticker sheets, coloring books, bubble-blowing solution, crayons, and pinwheels. Tuck them inside our “Monkeyin Around” loot bags for an easy favor presentation.
- "Animal Antics" - for the first round of the game, sit the kids in a circle and have each child draw a card, from a pile you've put together ahead of time, that has the name or picture of an animal on it. The kids take turns making the sound of the animal while the other players try to guess what it is.
- "Best Monkey Contest" - give each child a chance to demonstrate his or her best monkey call!
they will love monkeying around like this! When all the children have had a turn, award prizes for the loudest, squeakiest, most realistic, funniest, etc. You can enlist parents, older siblings, or neighbors to be competition judges. Be sure to have enough prizes on hand to ensure everyone's a winner!
Whatever you choose to do in terms of decorations for your party venue, games for your little monkeys to play, or jungle animal themed food to serve, make it a memorable day for all of your Monkey Birthday Party guests!
