A Barnyard Party is a great theme for a little animal lover. Have a Barnyard party at your home with a visit from a mobile petting zoo or visit a nearby farm.
Make invitations in the shape of an old red barn with the barn doors opening to reveal the party details. Or use a drawing or photo of farm animals.
Decorate the party area with plastic or stuffed toy farm animals, cowboy hats, and hay bales. Paint boxes to look like a barn and silo.
