Curious George Party Game Ideas
-Monkey in the Middle: This game is a perfect (and obvious!) choice for monkey fun. All you need is a ball or beanbag for the kids to toss. In case it has been a while since you have played this game here is a quick refresher on how to do it. Monkey in the middle is a game where one person stands in the center and is called the “monkey”. The rest of the players stand around the “monkey”. Then one player throw the ball to another person, trying not to let the “monkey” get it. This process goes on until the “monkey” receives the ball. The “monkey” is now a player on the outside and the player who threw the ball is now the new “monkey”. Make sure everybody gets a chance to be the “monkey”.
-Crafts and Coloring: There are tons of free coloring pages and printable activities available on line for you to download. Set up a table with crayons, markers, and various other supplies needed to let the kids get creative.
-Find the Banana Game: This game is pretty much a variation on the traditional Easter egg hunt. You can use real bananas or make your own out of construction paper. Simply hide the bananas and let the kids have fun running around trying to find as many as they can. Don’t make this game too easy – little monkeys love a challenge!
Curious George Party Food Ideas
-Cake: Kids and monkeys love cake. Whether you decide to go with a traditional birthday cake or cupcakes, be sure to check out our fabulous selection of Curious George cake decorating supplies.
-Banana Splits:Where there’s cake, there’s ice cream. Play on the “monkeys LOVE bananas” cliche and serve banana splits. The kids (and grown ups) will love being able to help assemble their own delicious creation. Sundae bars are really easy to set up and kid friendly.
-Monkey Munch: This is also known as Puppy Chow but became widely known as Monkey Munch after Kate Gosselin referred to it as Monkey Mix on her tv reality show, Jon and Kate Plus 8. It’s a great snack to have out or would be a great party favor to bag up and send home with your guests!
