All was quiet… until the Gruffalo birthday party started!
Why? Didn’t you know? Lots of UK children know the wonderful rhyming story of the Gruffalo, written by Julia Donaldson. We love running this colourful Gruffalo arts and crafts birthday party theme for little ones.
With a snake, fox, mouse and owl, there’s plenty of scope for an animal theme. If you like the Gruffalo in your family, you might also like another picture book theme – a Peter Rabbit party for little ones who love animals.
- Make a playdough Gruffalo and characters from the book
- Paint a bubblewrap snake
- Make a Gruffalo puppet or headdress
- Find the Gruffalo characters scavenger hunt
- The Gruffalo song and actions
The Gruffalo themed party is suitable for quite young children, and we suggest an age range of 2-4 to make sure everybody has fun. Although, we find that there are definitely lots of children who enjoy this story long after their fourth birthday and beyond!
