Bodhi's Wild Kratts Fourth Birthday Party (10 of 27)

Bodhi turned four in April and decided he wanted an at-home party after many discussions of locations we could use. Last year, I swore I was taking it to a full service party place of some sort-the inflatables place, the trampoline park, the nature center-anywhere where I had less work to do around the house. But he insisted on having it at home. And I’m excited to share that things went really smoothly thanks to limited DIY and no homemade food.

Read on for Bodhi’s Wild Kratts themed fourth birthday party at home. It’s filled with easy budget friendly Wild Kratts birthday party ideas.

There are not a lot of Wild Kratts birthday parties out there, so finding really good inspiration wasn’t easy. Bodhi and I gathered most of it from the show itself. He decided that animal print would be a cool backdrop for all of the tables and he knew he wanted the Wild Kratts paw logo on there as well. I chose Kraft paper as a main “color” this year largely because it’s so readily available and inexpensive.

Desserts included homemade “Mystery of the squirmy wormy” dirt cake in fun little cups with a spoon tied on from The TomKat Studio. You can buy similar cups on Amazon.

The cake was a Whole Foods creation and we added animals plus a topper from Shop Bracket.

With nut allergies to work around, we ordered dirt and worm donuts from YoYo Donuts as they are one of the only nut free bakeries I was able to find locally.

Lastly, I bought white cupcakes with white frosting from the grocery store and added Creature Power Disc cupcake toppers from Believe Cakes on Etsy. Bodhi LOVED these.

Bodhi’s Schleich animal collection really made it easy to decorate the whole party. The backdrop was just bulletin board paper I found on Amazon with Kraft paper running down the middle and a Wild Kratts paw logo made with foam circles and hot glue.

I like that the crate added a bit of height and Bodhi’s globe added the geographical element that the Wild Kratts include in each episode. The food labels and signs were made by Natalie from A Pretty Little Party. Loved working with her.

A 20×30 poster by A Pretty Little Party made this space fun and printing at Costco is just $9. This is such an easy way to personalize a party.

The party favors were National Geographic Kids books about animals, Bodhi’s pick, of course. We also put out baskets of snacks for kids to take for the road.

Photo “booth”

I’m always doing an iPhone photo booth at parties. It’s just a backdrop and a stand with a sign. The sign tells guest which hashtag to use. This year we used our iPad which allowed the kids to get a photo with the Kratt Brothers through one of the Wild Kratts apps. Kind of fun! We included simple masks ordered from Amazon.

Watering Hole

I had to get these fun cups so decided to do a “watering hole” which was actually a lemonade stand. We also had Honest juice pouches and lots of water bottles.

Food

I kept food so so simple. We ordered cheese pizzas (that’s it!) and put together 20 or so fruit cups and 20 or so carrot cups. This made a huge difference in the party prep that day. So much less work.

Tables and chairs

We had a lot of mismatched chairs so I covered them with Kraft paper covers that I made by simply stapling them on and added paper Creature Power Discs to each chair.

Activities

We asked The Raptor Center to come to our home. This was a 30-minute program with amazing birds in our yard. The kids loved it (or at least Bodhi did) and then they played in our basement and on our playset.

I honestly haven’t enjoyed a party quite like I did this year. There was so little stress and no last minute issues. I think keeping the food simple was a huge help. I thought this year would be way more work or harder because I had Ezra and his schedule to think about, but it wasn’t. It was the easiest yet.

We also invited significantly fewer friends which is hard to do, but made the party more manageable. Next year, I think we’re going with the “five friends for turning five” route.

That’s a wrap friends. It only took four months to finally get this posted. :) I hope we gave you lots of Wild Kratts birthday party ideas on a budget.
