By party games I mean face painting. And an animal show. Sometimes it’s hard coming up with birthday party ideas, but for this Diego Jungle Party I knew the kids needed to be turned into wild creatures and needed to go on an animal safari. Because after all, Diego is an animal rescuer. Do I even need to mention that they loved it?

The face painting was first. As the guests trickled in, each child had a turn becoming their animal of choice (thanks to a nearby face painter). And once everyone was transformed, the animal show started with local traveling wild zoo. This lasted for almost an hour.

Remember when you’re planning your party (and trying to incorporate–yet not totally include–a commercialized character) to focus on what that character does, not bombard your guests and clutter up your decor with character party supplies. Know what I’m saying?

  5. W.O.W!! What a cute idea! My girls would LOVE this party idea… OK well, they’d maybe be a little wary of the animals, but are in love with Diego! :)
