Children's Monkey Theme Birthday Party Planning

Party Idea Pros has an “old fashion” approach to kids’ parties.  We say keep them small, keep them short, and keep them simple.  We love hula hoops, beach balls, crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and musical instruments.  Generally, the number of guest should equal the age of the birthday child, but don’t obsess if you are a few over or under — it is not worth the hurt feelings for an extra child or even two.   Never, ever deliver invitations as school, unless every single child is invited!!!!!   Skip the jumpies and the pony rides.

For a great kids  monkey theme  party there are only a few essentials:

  • A great invitation — even before the party begins invitations create a sense of anticipation.  Think of all the time your own child spends  looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.
  • Great monkey theme paper goods

  • A  cluster or two of latex balloons mixed with some fabulous Mylar monkey  shaped balloons (be especially careful of latex balloons if you have very young children present)
  • A few coconuts, a bunch or two of bananas, a plastic safari hat, and colorful plastic binoculars for  your centerpiece or simply use the centerpieces provided in the jungle party kits – you can always make them a little more playful by adding balloons and some of your own monkey accessories.

  • Four  activities:  a “doing” activity such as a home “Hide & Seek Safari Monkey” a craft activity such as make your own Sock Monkey or  Monkey Finger Puppets, and a game activity  like, “Monkey in the Middle or “Monkey Tug of War”, or “Monkey See, Monkey Do”, and to end the party, a chance to break the monkey pinata.  As the kids get older, the same activities work — just make them more complex, and add a competitive/team component.

Rather than list every single little monkey doodad you can buy, we will highlight the “big” items and a just a few special products we have gathered.  Pretty much you can buy most of the “fun stuff” wherever you choose to purchase your basic partyware.  Our go to sites include: | Birthday in a Box | Etsy |  Minted | Shindigz

After much searching it appears that the paper party supplies featured in the Pink Mod Monkey Party in the Box are actually solid colored party supplies. After much searching we have only found the personalized photo Pink Mod Monkey plates but have failed to find the original Pink Mod Party supplies anywhere. So, if you are in love with this particular pattern and do not want a photo of your child on the plate, we suggest either adding a printable sticker such as the one featured below or springing for these similar customizable plates an matching napkins we found on Zazzle.
