Throw a Jungle Book Party
Let's face it, The Jungle Book's Mowgli often has a kid's dream life: Every day is all about monkeying around. While your birthday boy or girl probably leads a more tame existence, this party gives you the "bear" necessities for cutting loose.
Baloo Birthday Cupcakes: When planning a party for kids, there's one key detail to "bear" in mind: What kids most look forward to is the cake. And if they each get a cake of their own, like one of these cute Baloo cupcakes -- all the better!
Jungle Book Party Crafts
Printable Party Hat: Let every kid feel like king, or queen, of the jungle, with a printable party crown they can color themselves. To keep things moving, have the pieces cut out and ready for kids to color.
More Jungle Book Party Activities
Monkey See, Monkey Do: Okay, so this game is an awful lot like Simon Says, but monkeys are way more fun than Simon. Appoint a "monkey" -- probably a parent or chaperone so all the kids get a chance to play -- to come up with goofy gestures, motions and routines. The players are then charged with mimicking each action. Whoever follows along the longest, wins!
Jungle Boogie: The Jungle Book animals loved to dance. Put on some tunes -- from the movie soundtrack or other animal-themed tunes -- and let each kid pick a jungle animal to be. Have kids dance in character as monkeys, bears, elephants, snakes, or tigers, then make them switch roles for the next song!
