Babar Birthday Party
- Elephants have excellent memories and -- in the case of Babar and Badou -- they help make excellent memories, too. Throw your preschooler a birthday party he or she will never forget. See More Parties
Planning the Party
Once you've made your guest list, let Babar the famed green-suited pachyderm help you announce the big birthday news. These printable Babar Party Invitations are a delightful and simple summons to your child's party. If your child already is writing his or her name, let the birthday boy or girl help fill out the invites, or let them add some stickers or a doodle to the envelopes.
Decorations, Playtime & Favors
The guest of honor should definitely don this Printable Crown, modeled after the very one that Babar himself wears. Your birthday boy or girl can also help you prepare by creating a game of Pin the Trunk on the Elephant. Help your little one draw a basic elephant shape without a trunk. Then, pre-cut "trunks" from construction paper and invite your party guests to adorn them using stickers, crayons and markers, glitter and more. After they've played the classic game, they can take their decorated trunks home for souvenirs.
What to Serve
Elephants are healthy eaters, and your young guests are sure to bring appetites, too. Set your birthday table with finger foods to nosh on. Tie helium balloons to baskets of Babar's Hot Air Balloon Snack -- a tasty mix of nuts, popcorn and dried fruit -- to make a charming table centerpiece. Let kids play with their food, by cutting fruit ahead of time so guests can help make Zephir's Monkey Fruit Faces. For a substantive snacking, go green, and put out trays of Babar's Green Suit Pinwheels and Babar's Green Suit Veggie Tray. Follow up all this with a colorful, flower-powered dessert: Celeste's Palace Garden Cake.
