Giraffe Party Decoration Ideas
Tie a bunch of yellow and brown (or whatever color combination you
choose your giraffe to be for the party) and tie them on tall strings to
the mailbox or outside the party area so that guests will know where the
party is located. Make tall signs and place them outside the party
area to direct guests inside. Draw giraffe print on the sidewalk
with brown and yellow sidewalk chalk.
Decorate in browns, yellows or oranges ... or use a
colorful giraffe print and take the colors from it to decorate the
party. An easy and inexpensive way to decorate a birthday party
room is to use yards of tulle in your party colors.
Drape long pieces of the tulle from the middle of the ceiling of the
party room outwards towards the corners, attach with command hooks (they
remove easily) and then let the ends drape to the floor.
Buy different sizes of white or clear tall
containers and fill them with tall candies like nerds ropes, twizzlers,
tubes of gum, etc. Tie a bow made of giraffe print ribbon around

safari. Decorate the tables with browns and greens and place lots
of potted plants in the center. At each place setting set out a
pair of binoculars and a

Giraffe Party Games
High Relay Races
Celebrate the giraffes height with these fun relay race games!
Divide the guests into teams and have them in up one behind the
other. For each team set up a "turn around point" marked by an
orange cone (or similar object ... even a chair will do) that the
players will have to run around and then back to their team. One
by one the players complete their relay and run back to their team and
the next player in line takes a turn. The winning team is the one
with all of their players to complete the relay. Here are a few of
our favorite relay races:
- Carry an egg on a paper plate above your head
- Walk on stilts
- Balance an egg on a spoon above your head
- Complete the relay in high heels
Give teams each a set of building blocks ( the more the better) and one
by one they must build the highest tower. Set up a certain spot
for each team to build their towers that has a flat surface. One
by one the players must take a block and start to build a tower.
Each player will build upon the last players block. You can either
have them build until one team reaches a certain height (5 feet) or give
them a time limit and see how high they can build the tower in 15
minutes. If the blocks fall the team has to start over so
encourage them to build a strong base.
