Noah's Ark Birthday Party
Noah's Ark is great for any birthday and works especially well for second birthday's (two x two), twins and sibling birthday's.
Noah's Ark Invitation Ideas
Animal Crackers - Print out a large rectangular label with the
party information and stick onto boxes of animal
Noah's Ark Decorations
Place a few hay bales outside in the front yard.
Cut out silhouettes of animals and hang them from the ceiling
and/or place them on the back of the party table chairs.
Make a large rainbow with balloons or paint one on butcher paper to hang
in the party room.
If your party table will be outside place hay bales around it for the children to sit on.
Noah's Ark Icebreakers
Noah's Ark Party
Face Painting - Paint the party guests faces like different animals on the Ark.
Noah's Ark Party Games
3 legged Race - Divide party guests into teams of two. Set a pair of stuffed animals out for the players to run around and then back to the start. Tie the teams together with rope or just have them lock arms for the race. The first team around the cone and back wins! Play several rounds.
Rainbow Tag - "It" stands in the middle of the playing area. There are two sides of the field that the players have to run across, and by "it", to get to the opposite side where they are safe. Away from "it" each player chooses a color that they want to be called. Players line up on one side. "It" shouts a color out and the players matching that color run past him/her to the opposite side. "It" tries to get as many kids as possible as they run past. The children which tagged become "its" helpers and stay with "it". "It" can call 1, 2 or 3 different colors or "Rainbow" and then all the colors have to try and make it across the area.
Animal Roundup - You need 2 balloons and 1 broom for each team. Decorate balloons to look like Noah's ark animals. Example: Giraffe's - orange balloons with eyes and noses drawn on with marker and a piece of brown curling ribbon tied to the tied off end of the balloon for a tail. Elephants - Grey balloons with black tails. Divide party guests into 2 teams. At one end of the playing area line the teams up one behind the other and at the other end of the playing field place 2 cones or objects that the children will have to run around before they can come back to their line. Give each team 1 broom and 2 matching balloons. One by one they must "herd" the balloons with the broom to the cone and back. First team with all their players done wins. Make extra balloons just in case some of them pop on the course.
Noah's Animals Scavenger
Hunt - Buy plastic animals in pairs - buy as many different types of animals
as possible so that no pair is alike. Hide the animals before the
Noah birthday party begins - hide the animals separately in the
backyard, party room or park.
Tell the children that they are to go out and bring back the animals in
pairs - two by two. When the children find an animal they
can take it and look for another animal that matches it. They can
only have one animal in their hand at a time until they find the match
to the animal they have. When they find the match they bring it to
a prize table and get to pick a prize. Then send them out to look
for another pair.
