Christi attended a Zoo Party that her mother put on for all of her family. Here are just some of the ideas that you can incorporate into a zoo party that adds fun and makes special memories.
There are many things you can do for less money to add fun to a party. Just think outside of the typical party decor and craft kits box to find what will work for cents instead of dollars. Simply putting food in an animal shape doesn't cost any more money, but sure does add the animal fun to it! Other things that she had to add to their party favor bags were printed worksheets of animals (mazes, crossword puzzles, coloring pages), rows of stickers (if you buy a pack of stickers with rows on each sheet, you can easily cut them into strips and give each child a strip instead of a whole sheet), and styrofoam animal stickers (another dollar store purchase. Find those things that are a dollar but can be divided amongst all the guests), along with their crafts that they made, cupcake topper and little gift from the Wildlife guy. Be on the lookout at the end of summer for fun things on summer clearance. Some dollar stores will have sun visors that are animal shaped. I've seen them for 10-15 cents a piece. Those would make fun party favors too. Just keep your eyes peeled and think about when things that you are interested in will go on clearance. It will make your CeLeBration more of a celebration of saving cents on an amazing party that everyone will remember.
