Zoo / Safari Birthday Party Ideas!

We decided to have a Zoo/Safari Themed Birthday Party for Bryce’s first birthday last year. He was obsessed with this awesome toy by Fisher Price so we it just made sense to give him a birthday party full of animal fun!  You can see the details of the decorations that we used for the party here but below I have listed some of the items we purchased with links so that you can buy them as well as some other fun stuff I have run across since then! I hope you find it useful to have them all in one place!

We placed a bunch of these inflatable animals in the corner and put up a petting zoo sign! The kids LOVED them and over a year later we still have these little critters roaming throughout our house. The boys still love them and we haven’t had any air leaks yet!
