This year for Sammy’s 4th birthday party he decided that he wanted a Safari themed party, well actually I lie, about a week after his third birthday he decided he wanted a safari theme for his next party!
So here is what we did.
We had some packs with templates, patterned paper and stickers to make animals from, I haven’t included a picture as they are something that I was using up from the Brownie cupboard (yes donation made into funds!) from probably around 2002, so not sure if people would still be able to get.
Sammy helped to make animals which we used for party bags and a safari hunt
We also played the usual musical bumps, pass the parcel and a bit of a twist for pin the tail on the giraffe
This year I don’t have the exciting pictures of food and labels for it like last year as things have just been so hectic with hospital appointments etc, but on our menu
- ham sandwiches
- jam sandwiches
- nachos (plain salted)
- cherry tomatoes
- sausage rolls
- little sausages
- chicken nuggets
- marshmallow crispy cakes
- grapes – red and green
and of course birthday cake (no tears this year for the wrong cake as we made sure we involved him all the way through)
made using this recipe in pyrex bowls, although unfortunately I forgot to put the vanilla in the body and am now using 2 capfuls for this amount of mixture
