If your kids love the movie Zootopia as much as my daughter does, you might find yourself needing to plan a Zooptia birthday party!
Since I could not find much online, that lead me to have to come up with my own ideas! And let me say, planning her Zootopia birthday party was a LOT of fun! It turned out great and the kids had the best time (which is really what matters most of all).
SUPPLIES USED FOR THE PARTY:
Police Name Badges
Animal Print Paper Bags
Rainforest Flowers Table Runner
Big Snow Flakes
Animal Print Balloons
Pick Your Nose Cups
The first thing we did when people walked in was to give them a police badge sticker with their name on it, so everyone at the party was an officer! This was a hit with both the kids and the adults!
One of the neatest things in the movie, in my opinion, was the different districts for each type of climate. I found these Disney official fan art posters, and just printed them on 11×17 paper. I set up the room to have four sets of tables, and decorated each set of tables in a different “district” theme. I displayed these posters on the wall above each set of tables so guests would make the correlation.
Here you can basically see how I did each table in a different environment. We had a wintery table for Tundratown, a rainforest themed table for the Rainforest District, a desert themed table for Sahara Square, and a carrot and bunny table for The Burrows! We will have a list to where we got our supplies and links at the bottom of this post, so you can recreate the look easily!
I found a large image of Judy Hopps and added a large, “x” to her tail and printed it on 11×17 paper so we could play “Stick the tail on Judy Hopps.”
Each child was blindfolded. They were given a cotton ball with a glue dot attached. Then they would try to pin on the tail! I used a marker each time to write the names of the kids by their cotton ball so we didn’t lose track. The player who got the closest to the x was promoted to Sheriff for the rest of the party!
I love being able to incorporate fresh fruits and veggies into party food to help offset all the sugar. We had little disposable condiment cups, and put some ranch dressing in them, and a handful of baby carrots. We also served fresh blueberries. Multiple times in the film, blueberries and carrots are references, eaten and used! So this was perfect!
We rolled green forks into orange napkins and tied them with a little white curling ribbon to give the appearance of carrots! It was a fun touch, and was easy and cheap! I even found adorable “Pick Your Nose” cups as well!
My aunt makes AMAZING cakes, and did this one for us! Everyone absolutely loved it, and it was definitely the star of the party! Didn’t she do an amazing job? I felt so guilty when we had her cut into it so we could eat it!
The last touch of the party was one of my favorites! We ordered plain donuts from a local bakery, and bought cookie frosting and enough sprinkles to bathe in, and we let everyone decorate their own donut. We did this very last, even after the presents were open, and we gave people animal print paper bags to take their donuts home in if they wished.
Our Zootopia birthday party was a huge success! Not only did the kids love it, the adults got into it too. However to be honest, the only opinion that really mattered was my daughter’s….and she said it was the best!
