in red, yellow and blue. Use real bananas as weights for helium
balloons. If you have Curious George books, set them up around
the party - check some out at the library if you don't own
them yourself. If you have a yellow hat available, wear it
- you'll be Ted, George's caretaker! You can pass the hat
to guests if they are leading a game.
Curious George loves to draw on the walls - so put some white
butcher paper up on a wall for your guests to draw on. BE
SURE they know which wall and ONLY that area of the wall.
Play a Curious George version of follow the leader. Have someone
be "it" - wearing the yellow hat? - and they can
stand in the middle of the circle. Whatever actions they do,
everyone else has to copy. Animal sounds and movements would
be most appropriate for a Curious George party
Everyone can be Curious George for the day - make tails out
of long strips of brown fabric and safety pin the tails to
the back of the guests. Don't make it too long, or you may
have trouble with tripping monkeys! Use brown craft foam and
cut out monkey ears - attach them to headbands.
Serve Curious George food. Make frozen banana treats - peel
a banana and cut in half. Put a popsicle stick through the
flat side of the banana (make sure it goes at least half way
into the banana.) Put the bananas in a freezer bag and freeze
for 2-3 hours. When you take them out of the freezer, you
can dip the bananas in a chocolate sauce or yogurt and serve.
Try making a jungle mix of dried fruits, coconut shreds, chocolate
or yogurt chips
whatever your guests would enjoy and
you can afford.
Curious George birthday cake. You can make a traditional cake
in the shape of a monkey
a circle cake with a few cupcakes
for the ears and nose. Or bake banana bread for a change in
treats. Or offer banana splits with banana chips on the side.
Frozen chocolate bananas would be great, too.
Curious George beach ball fun! Get a bunch of beach balls
and blow them up. Put them in a play area for your party and
let your guests go at it! Bubbles would also be fun to play
