So the 4 year old tells me she wants a Go Diego Go party. Fun! Happy to not do another princess party. We turned the family room into a jungle. This took about 600 feet of green streamers. The plan was to do the whole room, but I ran out of streamers and was too cheap and busy to go back to the store. I attached the loops to the ceiling with painters tape and taped leaves on last with green paper I already had. Whole thing cost about $6 and took about an hour and a half (with three little “helpers”). If you want to know what we did for the rest of the party, more below.
What we did at the party:
1) Decorate binoculars with animal stickers. Made out of 2 toilet paper rolls and covered with jungle paper.
2) Went on a animal rescue around the house. At each clue, the kids got a new item. We started with the orange back packs (Oriental Trading) and then added a globe (O.T), a magnify glass (Dollar Tree), a compass (not pictured, O.T) and at the end, a stuffed jungle animal for each kid. We added their binoculars, then headed to… 3) A real animal rescue center that happens to be close by. Kids had a blast seeing all the snakes, lizards, parrots and fish. 4) Back home for cupcakes and lunch. I went easy on the food, nothin’ crazy. I did try the kool-aid flavored popcorn from Tasty Kitchen, kids thought it was neat, but it was more work than I was expecting. Lunch was just PB&J and apple slices with flower cupcakes (Martha Stewart).
