Everyone loves baby animals, so it’s only fitting one of the most popular themes for baby showers is the zoo party theme. I thought I’d put together a collection of Zoo baby shower supplies and ideas to help you with your party plans.
My favorite shower party supplies are these Zoo Crew party supplies from Baby Shower Stuff.
Aren’t they just adorable? You can find them here: Zoo Crew Party Supplies
My absolute favorites are the Zoo Crew cupcake holders.
If you’re more the do it yourself type, you can recreate this elephant cupcake topper, it would work really well for a zoo party theme.
He’s not hard to make, the instructions are here: Elephant Cupcake Topper.
You can also find a large selection of Zoo baby shower invitations on eBay here: Zoo Baby Shower Invitations
Most can be customized, and will come pre printed with your shower information on them.
Zoo Baby Shower game ideas:
- Play pass the elephant. Grab a small stuffed elephant (or another zoo animal) from your child’s collection or from the store. Every time the hostess or hostesses say “baby” the elephant gets passed one to the right. Whoever ends up with the elephant at the end gets a prize.
- List some popular zoo animals, then have your guests come up with the names of their babies. You can make this a matching game, or really make it tough and make them come up with the names on their own.
- Zoo animals word search, or word scramble. Come up with some zoo animals or terms and jumble them up, or hide them in a word search. some good words to use include: elephant, lion, ticket, bear, giraffe, zoo, show, penguin, monkey, panda, you get the idea!
- Play pin the tail on the lion, or pin the trunk on the elephant. Pin the tail is not just for kids! You’ll get tons of laughs even with adults trying to pin the tail on anything while they’re blindfolded! And you’ll bring back some fun childhood memories.
The most important thing is to have fun and pamper the mom to be!
