How to Plan a Wild Kingdom Jungle Party

By  | Last Updated:  

Hey guys, Samantha here again from Sweet Eats Cakes. This week I will be walking you through how to throw an awesome Wild Animal Kingdom party complete with an elephant cake tutorial. Since the last party I showed you [How to plan a police detective party“] was geared more towards slightly older kids I geared this party towards 2-5 year olds.


• Animal print balloons
• Green, tan, and brown streamers
• Caution animal crossing signs
• Animal footprints made from paper
• Animal print tablecloths
You can also add plants you already have to the party rooms to help set the environment for the party.


• Face painting
• Find the peanut
• Roaring contest
• Animal Piñata
Keep your activities short and sweet to capture the little ones attention.


• Hoagies in the shape of snakes
• Hungry hippo dip and veggies
• Gorilla grapes (fruit skewers)
• Cheetah cheese and crackers
• Animal crackers
• Jungle juice (any kind of juice colored to match the party theme)


• Elephant cake
• Wild Kingdom cupcakes
• Animal print sugar cookies
• Zebra cakes (Little Debbie’s placed on sticks)
• Mini banana pudding parfaits


• Compasses
• Little flashlights
• Sunglasses
For favors give fun little themed items that can also be used during the party.

I hope you guys liked these ideas for a fun Wild Animal Kingdom party. Stick around because I will be showing you how to make an awesome elephant cake which will be the hit of the party! Also, be sure to check out my Pinterest board for this party because I have pinned a great tutorial for how to make the animal print sugar cookies and tropical leaves.
