How to Throw a Snake Themed Birthday Party

There isn't much on the web about how to do a snake themed birthday party, but that didn't stop me from honoring my kid's request for a snake birthday party. In case you have a snake lover in your family - here's a few tips on how to have a fun and easy party!

1. applique snakes onto shirts using the same method here. (optional: Instead of letters use their age)
2 let kids make crowns from poster board a decorate with stick on letters and jeweled stickers
3. hide a dozen plastic snakes around the yard and have the kids each find one
4. Fill decorative cups with gummy snakes for them to take home as favors.
5. Cut out plywood in the shape of a snake then cover with green construction paper
6. Line up cupcakes decorated with frosting that matches your child's favorite snake - Coral
7. Use a couple of chocolate chips & a strip of Fruit by the Foot to cut out a snake tongue.
8. Have pizza delivered so there isn't any cooking
9. Have a couple games ("hot potato snake" & the limbo under a snake) on hand
10. Sit back and watch the kids have a ball!

Optional - plan the party for when a nearby park district is having a snake program so you can take the group to see the snakes! (We were almost able to do this, but unfortunately our park snake program was too early in the season) Oh well!

  1. Wow! That looks like a great snake themed party!

  2. Very cute! You should send it into Family Fun magazine...they feature a party theme every month. I get my copy free from our doctor's office...long story!

  3. that is such a cute idea! love the cupcakes all lined up like that. good job, mom!

  4. Thats a theme that isn't used very often, if at all. The kids can say their party was different from everyone elses. Was it both Julia and Sams birthday? I saw Julias birthday tribute but must have missed Sams.

  5. Adorable! I love it! You did a great job!!!

  6. Hope all is well with you and your beautiful little ones! Miss hearing about your adventures!

  7. My son would love the snake idea. I love your header picture - adorable!
