up"water" around the Noah's Ark party area with
a roll of blue plastic tablecloth. You may find these rolls
at party supply or craft stores. Cut out some paper fish and
tape them to the "water."
If you are indoors, label rooms of the Noah's Ark party area
by the names of the animals. A playroom can be "Monkeys",
the living room could be "Lions." Or perhaps label
different areas outside according to what activities will
take place in the area - eating with the Elephants, swinging
Desserts in duos on the ark. If you have the time and inclination,
you can make cupcakes and decorate them in pairs. Perhaps
different colors of icing (you can mix colors with food coloring),
or pairs of plastic or candy animals on the tops of the cupcakes.
If you offer cookies, serve them in twos.
Find some inflatable animals for your table, to hang from
various places, or just to prop up around the Noah's Ark party.
If you cannot find them at a party supply store, check Oriental
Trading Company. (Quest does not have any professional affiliation
with OTC) They typically sell the animals by the dozen - but
that means you can fill a lot of space easily. They could
also be great parting gifts. Swimming pool supply stores or
departments of larger stores often have inflatable animal
products as well.
Play Noah's Ark party games in pairs. If you play a group
game, they have to stand together in pairs. If you play tag,
the guests have to hold hands; if you play pin the tail on
the donkey, have one player blindfolded and the other player
give directions. After each activity, have the guests switch
partners to keep everyone encouraging one another. You can
set pairs with nametags, hats or masks of different animals.
This would probably work best with older guests.
