How to plan a 2 hour Kids's Birthday Party

Posted by Jill Heaton on

Creating a magical adventure for your party guests takes a little preparation. Birthday party planning needn't be stressful, because we've done the work with our suggested party itinerary below.

Animal themed kid's party plan

10.30 Biscuit Decorating - Set out some pre-prepared animal shaped ginger biscuits and provide icing pens and silver balls to decorate them with. 

Set up this activity whilst your guests arrive which will allow time for any late comers. If anyone arrives too late to do this activity explain kindly, but firmly, that the activity is finished, but they can have a go at the end before they go home.

10.45 Safari Animal Treasure Hunt - Children are always most excited about the treasure hunt, which is why we built an entire business around it! We've had loads of parties and have never known a child not want to take part.

If it's well organised, and the markers well hidden this will last for 20 minutes. Give the children a further 10 minutes to play and run around if the weather is nice.

11.15 Pass the Parcel - Everyone knows how to play pass the parcel! Just make sure to wrap up a layer for every child and use animal wrapping paper and have an animal themed gift for the winner.

11.25 Safari Stepping Stones - Based on the classic party game musical chairs we designed animal stepping stones. Children dance around a ring of stepping stones finding a vacant one when the music stops.

11.35 Sleeping Lions - Just like sleeping logs, but children have to pretend to be asleep and the first one to move is out until one is remaining. You may have to produce a tickling stick for any highly competitive guests.

11.45 Craft Activity - for the perfect themed activity try our monkey and giraffe craft kits. It will give you enough time to set out the birthday party food you prepared earlier!

12.00 Lunch Time

12.20 Birthday Cake - Singing Happy Birthday, blow out candles...hip hip hooray!

12.25 Story Time - We like ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ by Giles Andrae
