Zoo Party Games

Catch the Elephants Tail
Kids need a big space to run to play this fun game. Kids hold hands in a long line (the elephant). During the game they can't stop holding hands. Choose a child on one end to be the elephant's head. The child of the other end will be the elephants tail. The elephants head is trying to catch or tag the elephants tail ... and the elephants tail is trying to get away ... all while everyone is holding hands. When the tail is tagged then the head moves to the back of the elephants line and then becomes the elephants tail. Next child in the front spot of the line becomes the elephants head.

Giraffe, Giraffe, Elephant 

Played like duck, duck, goose only the kids hold a stuffed elephant and say "giraffe, giraffe, elephant as they walk around the kids. Feeding Time - Players try and toss peanuts (the kind that still has the shell) into buckets.  Place two buckets 15 - 20 feet from the teams.  Kids have to take a peanut and try to toss it into the bucket.  Set a time limit and then count how many peanuts each team has in their bucket.  

There are lots of fun game ideas on our party games page that are perfect for Zoo theme parties. 

Zoo Party Activities

Many towns have small petting zoos that will come to your home and bring a variety of animals for the children to interact with at the Zoo party. 

Make fun zoo themed frames with foam animal stickers, paint and glitter.  Take pictures with the zoo animals or with the other party guests for a fun memento of the Zoo party.


Send out invitations in the shapes of zoo animals or with zoo animals on the front. 

Buy a package of plastic animals and attach a card with the party information to each animal with curling ribbon.  Send them out to the party guests. 

Make cards that have the stripes, spots or patterns of wild animals found at the zoo. 

We're going to have a Wild time!

Party Decorations
Decorate the food table with a solid color tablecloth that reaches the floor and then attach construction paper grey bars to the tablecloth to make it look like a cage.  You can also use grey duct tape for the bars.

Hang a please don't feed the animals sign on the table until you are ready to serve the food.  

Scatter stuffed zoo animals throughout the party area and make a habitat for each one using artificial plants, grasses and flowers. 

Fun Ideas
Dress parents and older siblings up as zoo keepers.  Khaki shorts and shirts with safari hats.  Wear name tags such as "Zookeeper", "Feeding time administrator", "Lion keeper", etc. 

Birthday Food Ideas
Serve chips and snacks in new clean tin buckets.

Trays of fruits and vegetables with pictures of animals that like those kinds of treats.

Popcorn in brown paper bags that say "Gorilla Food".

Peanuts in small bags that say "Elephant Food".
