Go Diego Go Party ideas
If your little boy is as adventurous and animal-loving as the main character in Go Diego Go, then throw him a party with our Diego Party Ideas. These ideas include suggestions for invitations, decorations, activities, and more, which are sure to entertain even the wildest of beasts! Inviting boys and girls to the party?
Go Diego Go Party Planning & Invitations
Basic party supplies include paper tableware, such as plates, napkins, cups, and cutlery; a tablecloth, streamers, and balloons. If you want to purchase themed tableware, instead of solids, consider our Diego party supplies. You may also want to rent or purchase other items to fit your theme, such as:
- Episodes of Go Diego Go on DVD
- Nature Books on Different Animals
- Disposable Cameras
Invitations are an important part of your planning because they can really get your guests in the party mood! If you have the time to make your own, here are a few ideas to consider:
- Fold a piece of cardstock in half to create a side-fold card, and paste a picture or sticker of Diego on the front. Inside, write your party details in English on the right and in Spanish on the left.
- Cut out photos of animals from nature magazines and paste them on the front of a top-fold card. On the inside, write, "Did you know that no two tigers have identical stripes? Find out more at [child's name]'s birthday party!"
- Write your party details in black marker on world maps. Roll the maps up and send them in mailing tubes to your guests.
Go Diego Go Party Decorating & Food
Decorations that fit your theme are a great way to set the "adventurous" mood. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Diego loves animals, so if your child owns various stuffed animals, set them throughout the party area.
- Hang green streamers or ribbon from the ceiling to simulate tree vines.
- Balloons are a must at any party! Group together three to five helium balloons and anchor them with balloon weights around the party area. Add themed Mylar balloons to some of your balloon groups for added effect.
- Hang a banner above the entrance to the party area that reads "Welcome to [child's name]'s Birthday Adventure!" Take a look at our Personalized jungle banners for inspiration.
- Make two signs for various items in the party area - one with the English word and one with the Spanish word. For example, put signs on the window that say "window" and "ventana".
- Set potted trees, plants, or inflatable trees around the party area.
- Hang a Diego pinata in the party area that can be used as a decoration before the activity begins. Remember, you can transform any pinata into a pull-string with these easy instructions
Incorporate Diego's Latin heritage into your party food, or base your food choices on Diego's love for adventure and animals. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- If you are planning to serve a full meal, as opposed to snacks, set up a taco bar and let your guests build their own tacos. Include flour and corn tortillas, ground beef, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream, and salsa.
- Set out a bowl of tortilla chips with several different dips to try - such as salsa, guacamole, black bean dip, or queso dip. For added fun, serve the chips in an upside-down safari hat.
- Make a fruit plate with tropical fruit, such as mango, papaya, pineapple, banana, and star fruit. Serve with vanilla yogurt for dipping.
- Make your own trail mix,
then fill cupcake liners with the mix and set them out on a big platter
for the kids to grab and go.
- Serve churros or fried plantains with vanilla ice cream if you would rather not serve cake.
- For a Diego birthday cake, try this idea: Bake a 9"x13" cake and frost it in green frosting. Use blue frosting to create a 'stream' that goes through the center of the cake. Add tufts of 'grass' with dark green decorator icing and gumballs covered in grey frosting for 'rocks'. Add small plastic palm trees and Diego and jungle animal figurines.
