Planning a childrens party can be a struggle at the best of times, but with the help of an animal theme, you can bring your home to life and give the youngsters a whale of a time!
If you’re feeling ambitious, you can go even more specific and choose an ‘under the sea’, ‘jungle’ or ‘pets’ theme, but if you want their imaginations to go wild, just leave them to it and watch the fancy dress equivalent of a zoo walk through your front door.
Ideal for boys and girls, an animal-themed party is really easy to organise, just follow these simple steps:
The party excitement always starts with the invite. If you don’t want to fork out for pre-printed invites, why not make your own? Type out your party information – place, time, date, theme, for example – and centre it so the info looks as ‘rounded’ as possible (i.e. ensure it can be cut into a circle).
Once printed, cut your invitation into a circle and round-off the outside of the circle into a snake’s head. Then, glue a piece of red string and googly eyes to the head and there you have it – a snakey party invite!
Here’s where you can get creative.
Grab some animal jelly sweets (i.e. frogs and worms) and add them to your jelly for a super-tasty swamp treat. You can even add pieces of fruit if you so wish.
For more healthy treats, make ants on a ‘log’ by sticking raisins to celery sticks with peanut butter! And don’t forget you can buy animal shaped cookie cutters, which are ideal for making bread shapes as well as making biscuits.

If you don’t have time to craft a mask out of glitter glue and feathers for your little one, an online fancy dress store is the next best thing. Frojo’s stocks a vast number of childrens fancy dress outfits and accessories, including over 40 animal-themed bits and pieces found here.
We hope you throw a bonza bash and all the kids have a fabulous time!
