2 at the zoo

On top of making my growth sticks Im lucky enough to be a stay home mom. Thankfully I have energy that lasts for days and I manage to constantly come up with fun events, crafts and projects.

My sweet daughter turned two at the zoo and being the mom who goes all out at any chance to plan an event, she got all I could possibly give to make this day perfect!

I made this adorable cupcake stand and all of the goodies!
We had Aligator, camel and pink flamingo cupcakes.
Birds nest (chow mien noodles covered in butterscotch with blue jelly beans for eggs)
bear food (gold fish), elephant food (nutter butters) and Zebra food (shoe string potatoes).
I also made the birthday girls hat out of foam, flet and feathers.
Each guest received their "official safari guide" bags upon arrival. Each bag had a pair of animal sunglasses, animal hat, "passport"(I will get back to this), crayon pack (of 4 crayons) and each girl had a lepoard print and feather bow.
The passport was a great little book I made for each child. It had their passport picture. Each page had a riddle, example: I eat bananas and swing from limb to limb, the jungle is my gym. I am a...
Each animal was guessed and we would go around the zoo looking for that animal and receive a stamp in the passport! So much fun!

    Thank you SO! SO! SO! Much! It was as much fun preparing the party as it was seeing the kids enjoy the party! I've never heard so many "ooo's and ahhh's" and that was just from the grown ups!
