An animal-themed kids’ party is perfect for your budding zoologist. If your child is obsessed with animals, finding a fun-filled (and animal-filled) birthday party venue is a great way to give them a birthday party they will never forget.
Head to a nature centre for a chance to meet the animals and explore the outdoors, go to a farm to feed the animals, learn about animal conservation with rescue animals at a shelter or rescue centre, or try to a zoo or petting zoo to get up close with wild animals, reptiles, or farm animals.
The animal party places here host parties for kids with a wide variety of animals: birds, like macaws, parrots, owls; reptiles, including lizards and snakes; mammals ranging from small “pocket pets” like chinchillas and hedgehogs to skunks, , and the ever-popular dogs and cats—even some rescued exotic animals like lemurs, caimans, and kangaroos.
Also see Animal-Themed Birthday Parties That Come To You, for party packages that bring the animals to your home or venue.
Note that many that animal party places recommend keeping guests to fewer than 15–20 children and some allow only up to 10 children in order to keep interactions safe and to allow each child to get time with the animals.
