Number one tip for your safari party? Keep the animals distracted! Between your safari-themed party decorations and that beautiful safari party centerpiece, you need to keep the kids busy so they don’t unleash their inner animal. Thankfully, distracting kids isn’t hard when you have cute safari crafts and safari party games to play.
Start the kids off by having them make DIY binoculars out of toilet paper rolls. Then, play a game of safari hide and seek! Have each child dress up as an animal and hide. Keep one or two kids as the “seekers” who then go around the yard, spotting all the animals on the safari. You can do this inside or outside—so it’s perfect for any time of year! Just keep an eye on them to catch any cheetahs.
