Puppy / Kitty Invitations
Puppy and Kitty Party Decoration Ideas
Tie white, black and pink helium balloons to the mailbox so guests will know where the party is located. Cut out puppy and kitty paw prints from white or black poster board (or print them off the computer) and tape them down leading up to the party entrance.
Decorate the party table with white table cloths, red (or pink) plates, cups and napkins and black flatware. Tie white black, pink or red helium balloons around the party area or tie curling ribbon to the balloons and let them float on the ceiling for kids to play with during the party.
Instead of plates use new clean dog/cat dishes for the kids plates. They can also use these if you are serving ice cream & cake. They also make a nice goody bag to hold party favors when the party is over.
Animal Shelter Helper Scavenger Hunt
A great party idea, and one that will help animals. is having guests bring a kitty or puppy item to the party that can be donated to a local animal shelter. Ask them on the invitation to bring used clean towels, blankets, treats, toys and collars to the party. Make a trip to your local shelter during the party if you have time to give them the items. If you don't have time during the party take pictures with of the birthday child giving the shelter the items and send it to guests with a thank you card. Here is our Animal Shelter Scavenger Hunt - use the list to collect more items for the shelter around your neighborhood.

Mouse and Bone Treasure Hunt
Before the party buy lots of plastic mice and dog treat bones. Hide them around the birthday party area. During the party give each guest a paper bag and ask them to search and find all the hidden bones and mice. When all the items have been found let the guests turn them in for prizes - or you can write a number on some of the items that correspond with a prize and they can turn them in for the prize that matches the number on their item.
Kitty Litter Relay
Fun game where kids compete to fill their kitty litter box first. Fill two large containers with sand and place them about 30 feet from the starting line. At the staring line set up two tables with a see through plastic container on each table - these are the containers the kids have to fill with the sand. Separate the kids into teams and give each team a plastic spoon. They will take the spoon, go to the large container where they will fill their spoon with sand and then they will run it back and dump it into their container or kitty litter box. The first team that fills their container first wins.For more fun party games see our long list of the best birthday party games
