Welcome to the jungle, you’re in for a wild ride!
A Safari theme is great for young boys and girls or even a baby’s first birthday party. It offers plenty of great games to play such as a safari scavenger hunt and animal charades. The kids are guaranteed to have a ROARING good time at this party.
A creative idea for an invitation is to make “passports” for your guests. Details can include: expedition time and date, and main camp location (home address). Be as creative as you like when making the invitations, use images of animals and green or brown paper.
Get your guests to dress up as a Safari explorer or their favourite jungle animal. For a Safari explorer outfit, put together khaki shorts, shirt, pith Helmet and binoculars. To dress up as an animal, they can put on a simple mask or to be in full character dress them in an animal Onesie or Morphsuit. You can also do an animal face painting activity during the party to ensure everyone is involved in the dress up fun.

Safari Scavenger Hunt
Hide various small plastic animal toys in the garden, if you don’t have these handy use picture cut outs of animals. Give each child a list of animals to look for on the Safari Hunt. Depending on the age of the child, you can make these riddles or clues easy enough for the child to solve.
Have index cards ready before the party with animals on each card. Each child takes a turn in acting out the animal on the card (No words allowed, however noises are encouraged).
