Have an animal lover in your household? Then you need to check out this penguin party theme! Your kid will absolutely love this party theme, we'll bet on it. Let's get into it.
Penguin Party Theme – The Arctic Living Room
Streamers in cool colors will help to set the mood. Choose various shades of blue twirled with white to make things look chilly. Paint different size cardboard boxes to look like ice cubes, and scatter them around the party room. Wrap the boxes in white paper, and then spray lightly with turquoise spray paint. Use crumpled up paper or Styrofoam balls as snow balls. Arrange the balls into a pyramid shape for a centerpiece. Using poster board or construction paper cut out penguins, polar bears, and seals and hang them around the party room.
Penguin Party Theme – Arctic Edibles
Serve sandwiches cut into penguin shapes with a cookie cutter. Serve snow cones along with the cake. You can buy them already made, or make your own with a snow cone machine if you're feeling ambitious. Serve fish sticks! No penguin would refuse them.
Penguin Party Cake
To make a cake that looks like an Arctic wonderland, keep reading. Bake a large, rectangular cake for the base, and some cupcakes to use as igloos. Frost the cake and the cupcakes white. Put the igloos on the cake. Use dark and light blue frosting to make cracks and icy water on the cake, and to add detail to the igloos. Gummy fish in the water are a fun touch. Add a few plastic penguins here and there to complete the scene.
Take the Party to the Penguins
Not interested in using your own home for a party? No problem! You can still throw your own penguin-themed party. Consider taking your child and their guests and heading to the zoo! Of course, make sure to check to see if the zoo you're going to has penguins at it before visiting. This will not only make for a fun time for your partygoers, but an educational one, too. Kids learn best when they enjoy what they're learning!
Some zoos may even offer the opportunity for guests to meet certain animals in the zoo; penguins are often chosen as ambassadors for this program. If your zoo offers the opportunity for guests to meet a penguin, call ahead of time and inquire about cost and procedure. Everyone at your party will surely make memories that will last a lifetime!
If you don't want to visit a zoo, you can always rent somewhere to host the party. Use the same decoration ideas we gave above. Of course, make sure that all decorations fall under park or otherwise relevant rules. If you're throwing a wintertime party, there are plenty of indoor locations you can rent.
