SAFARI THEMED PARTY GAMES TO WOW YOUR GUESTS!
Monkey See Monkey Do
This game is similar to the classic “Simon says”, only with a safari theme party twist. Give the kids commands to make animal sounds or move like animals. For example: Monkey says, “Swing your trunk like an elephant.” Monkey says, “Run like a Cheetah.” “Squeal like a monkey!” and so on.
Get a big bag of plastic animals and hide them around the house. The kids can then put on their safari hats and binoculars and go hunt for animals. At the end of the hunt the kids then count their animals and the winners go in order of who has the most plastic animals. There is a prize for each place.
Elephant Peanut Race
Mark a start and finish line. Then line the kids side by side at the starting point and place a peanut on the starting line in front of each kid. The objective of the game is to see who can push the peanut to the finish line first… Easy? Oh, I forgot to say that they can only use their noses!
And don’t forget about the photographer!!!
Our package includes photography coverage by Fairweather Photography
You can offer party favours set up as a cute "adopt an animal" display, or you can fill brown paper bags with little soft animals and sweets. To complete the look, you can add a THANK YOU tag tied onto the handle with hessian string or animal print ribbon.
And what's THE most important thing to do?
