Curious George Party Planning & Invitations

  • Monkey masks or monkey costumes
  • Yellow hats or safari hats
  • Curious George books or DVDs
Pressed for time but still want a personalized touch? Try our Curious George invitations, which can be printed to include your child's name and all of the party details! For a unique touch, make your own Curious George party invitations. This can be a fun activity to get you and your child excited for your Curious George party! Here are some invitation ideas for your upcoming Curious George party:
  • Take a photo of your child on a swing or in a tree. Use the picture as the front of your invite and write your Curious George party information on the back.
  • Create monkey tails with long strips of brown felt threaded with elastic string. Include the tails with the invitations for your guests to wear at the party.
  • Cut yellow construction paper into the shape of a banana and write "we're going bananas" on the front. Or use yellow construction paper to cut out the shape of a yellow hat just like the one worn by the Man in the Yellow Hat.

Curious George Party Decorating & Food

  • Create a whimsical jungle using homemade trees. Cut construction paper into leaf shapes. Then paint paper towel rolls brown and tape the paper leaves to the tube. Stack the trees as high as you'd like using tape to hold the tubes together.
  • Place bunches of bananas and oranges (real or plastic) on the party table.
  • Hang green streamers from the ceiling to look like vines. You can twist two together or let the streamers naturally hang. You can also hang "vine" streamers around the border of the party table and in door frames.
  • Arrange inflatable palm trees around the room along with stuffed monkeys.


In addition to pizza, chicken fingers, hamburgers or hotdogs, you can add some Monkey themed food into the mix. Here are some suggestions.
  • Slice coconuts in half and use the shells as cups. Then prepare chocolate banana smoothies to serve to your guests. In a blender, combine 1 banana, 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup, 1 cup milk and 1 cup crushed ice. Blend until smooth and serve!
  • Arrange a colorful fruit and veggie tray for your guests to enjoy. Monkeys love oranges and bananas, so be sure to include orange and banana slices for your little monkeys!
  • Prepare monkey bread!
