third birthday!

animals reign supreme for the toddler set and your three year old will love a day at the zoo with a few friends. here are our ideas for making the day as special as they are.

-details: we love these elephant invitations found on etsy. a fun craft the kids would love are these animal masks that we’ll show you how to make below. tiny zoo-goers would look pretty darn cute in these tiger party hats.

-food + drink: ease meltdowns from tired little ones with this fun zoo snack mix. they’ll be so excited to see them in these super cute party favor bags. make sure to pick up some adorable chalkboard labels to keep everyone’s drinks straight. you would win extra bonus points if they were on these very grown up zoo water bottles.

– party ideas: how cool are these animal necklaces? we think the kids would go nuts for them. see the tutorial here. take a trip to the atlanta zoo with a small group of buddies and their parents. everyone will love seeing the baby pandas, giraffes, flamingos, gorillas, and more!

these masks would be something you could make with your little one for their friends to wear at the zoo. we love that most of the supplies you can find lying around. this craft comes from the book crafting with kids (available at the shop).
