An animal themed party can leave a wide amount of room open for music. With an animal party you can choose to have animal and safari noises in the background of the party or a more fun choice would be to only play songs that are related to animals. There are hundreds of songs across many different times and genres and party supplies that fit into this theme. Celebrating a special event with outstanding performances that include singing, dancing and acting is a great way to keep the guests involved in the celebration. These fun activities are perfect for guests of all ages and will add a great deal to the celebration. More often than not, these performances will be the perfect addition to a fun filled and exciting event.

One fun way to incorporate animal music into the party theme is after every few songs that play have some fun animal noises recorded or play a few minutes of safari background to keep guests on their toes. Some fun animal related songs are:
Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran, Wild Horses by the Rolling Stones, Hound Dog by Elvis Presley, Black Dog by Led Zeppelin, Crocodile Rock by Elton John, The Lion Sleeps Tonight by The Tokens, White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane, Black Horse and the Cherry Tree by KT Tunstall, Buffalo Soldier by Bob Marley, Octopusís Garden by The Beatles, Rock Lobster by the B-52ís, She Wolf by Shakira, and What Is New Pussycat by Tom Jones.
There are so many songs that have animals in the title or as the theme of the song. This makes it easy to play music the guests will like from many different genres while using animals as the only theme. Quick suggestion: Use movies or music to help set the mood when they are related to a theme or idea. Pick your favorite music and play it softly in the background before your guests arrive, to help you calm down and start to relax. Games will be most useful when selected accordingly to the age range of the participants.

There are various homemade party supplies and decorations available for a children's party such as paper plates, cups, napkins, and jungle themed cutouts. Parents throwing an animal themed birthday party or other celebration, ensure to include various homemade masks and arts & crafts for children to complete. For example, if the birthday boy or girl has a jungle theme party, offer children directions to make jungle animals such as monkeys, zebras, tigers, lions, elephants, giraffes, and cheetahs. To make handmade palm trees acquire cardboard, green oak tag, brown paint, scissors, glue, and a hot glue gun. Cut a long tree trunk out of the cardboard and paint it brown. Cut long leaves out of the green oak tag (make long rectangles by tapering the ends into points). Glue the leaves to the top of the tree trunk.

Most hosts will find that fun and exciting activities will be a great addition to this fun filled celebration. More often than not fun activities in which everyone can play and participate along with decorative supplies will liven up the event and make it very special. For this reason, planning and organization will be very beneficial for the host. Handmade jungle flowers are also essential party supplies for the animal themed party. Colorful tissue paper, floral tape, scissors, and pipe cleaners are all that is required to make realistic jungle flowers. Cut the tissue paper into long rectangles. Draw a zigzag line down the middle of the rectangle and cut. Tape the end of the jagged piece of tissue paper to the end of a pipe cleaner while keeping the jagged side up to resemble flower petals. Wrap the tissue paper around the pipe cleaner and add more tape to secure the flower to the stem. Add long, green leaves to the stem by cutting long strips out of green tissue paper and taping them to the pipe cleaner. Compare pictures to see if these flowers resemble other paper flowers. Use previously made paper flowers as guides.


An animal party theme with a zoo cake will get the attention of all of your young birthday party guests.

These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often the addition of enjoyable fares that are designed especially for this gathering will make everyone feel very special. Most children will really adore an animal themed birthday party with a special zoo cake and animal party supplies. A zoo cake can be made by using either a sheet cake or a round cake. A marble sheet cake covered with green icing will make the perfect zoo backdrop. Add to this cake an animal or two or for that matter a variety of assorted miniature animals to make the cake look authentic. An assortment of icing can be used to create fencing and animal cages.

In addition to the zoo cake another type of cake would be a round cake. This cake can have an animal or two on top with jellybeans or other candy decorations adorning the cake. Additionally, an assortment of animal party supplies will add a great deal to the partyís theme.

Kids and adults like barnyard farm animals and it can be lots of fun to have an animal party centered on that idea.

A costume party is one of the first ideas that probably come to mind. You can usually find some farm animal themed invitations, especially zoo, farm, jungle or safari animals that can be sent out to your guests with the needed information about the costume party on them. The invitation for your animal party should be related to the kind of animal party you are planning on throwing. Youíll find that there are all kinds of themed invitations available, such as invitations with exotic fish on the front and silly kidís invitations with jungle backgrounds.

Tell guests to come as their favorite farm animals, or you can focus the party around one type of environment. Perhaps animals under the sea can be more of a twist for your party. Hang up a wall mural of under the sea coral and bright fish to help match the aquatic life that your guests come to the party dressed up as.

Add to the animalistic atmosphere of the party with some inflatable zoo or farm animals, lions and tigers for the jungle, penguins for the arctic and fish of course for the ocean and cows for the farm. You can even find an inflatable birthday cake if you are having a birthday party.

Favors to give out to guests at your farm animal party can be animal ear head bands. These are great favors for kidís parties and you will find headbands for just about any animal these days. There are also snout masks available that you can purchase for your guests. Kids love these little rubber snouts. You will find lots of them running around the party pretending to be little pigs and cows and so on.
