Whether your child has never seen a real farm or is a true animal lover, you can throw a farm animal birthday party to relish in the fun of barnyard buddies!
Why not host a Farm Animal Themed Party for your child’s next birthday? Through a little bit of thought and preparation, you can acquaint your little city slicker with life in the country.
Fabulous Friends Found On the Farm
If the right kind of stationery is an indicator of the barrels of fun that you’ll have planning this event, then consider it done! An entire barn of animals smiles back at guests on these farmyard birthday party invitations. Cow print border gives the stationery a genuine feel as do the various animals illustrated on the front of the card. Children can view a pig, a chicken, a cow, a horse, and a dog and know what kinds of animals to expect at this fun event.
Sowing Your Wild Oats
A farm animal birthday party should be held outdoors or at a local petting zoo where children can get up close and personal with their farm animal friends. Enlist the help of a trusted adult or close friend to assist you in chaperoning the children as they make way from animal to animal.
Carry hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes in your pocket or purse to clean dirty hands before you serve refreshments.
Give each child a goody bag filled with animal related items like pencils, coloring books and crayons, or stuffed replicas of the animals featured on the front of the invitations that you sent out.
Refrain from serving meat at an event like this due to the heightened sensitivity children may have for their newfound “friends.” You don’t want little Billy making the association between the ham sandwich that he’s eating and the pig that he spent the last hour befriending.
If you want to serve a picnic style lunch, stick with peanut butter and jelly and avoid upsetting your guests. Pack a couple of extra cheese sandwiches just in case any of the children are allergic to peanuts.
A square shaped cake allows your imagination to run wild. Use green tinted coconut shavings and green frosting to give the dessert the appearance of being a pasture. Use earth-tone colored Jelly Belly beans to resemble rocks and crushed sandwich cookies to make realistic looking dirt. Microwave Tootsie Rolls to stretch and mold them into miniature fence posts. Place plastic farm animals in various spots on the cake. Don’t forget to take a couple of pictures of your finished product!
There is a whole world out there waiting to be discovered. By exposing your child to different experiences, you open doors of opportunity for them. Start the party off on the right “hoof” with farmyard birthday party invitations, and your children’s friends will be waiting for excitement for the big barnyard day!
