I’m about to show my age here, but if you’re familiar with the song title I’m using, bonus points to you. When my daughter was a tiny little thing, she used to sing it with her dad. It was the cutest thing ever. Today is that same girl’s birthday, and while she would (and does) happily sing this with her father, she’s all grown up now. This week’s Friday Favorites is dedicated to my first-born monkey!
Around the same time as all that singing, my little girl could not get enough of The Lion King. That was back when we were all watching on VHS, and the tape was so well-worn it had a permanent stripe across the top of the screen. Needless to say, we had a lion-themed birthday or two in there. This little Jungle Party from Simply Designing would have been perfect for my fruit and vegetable lover.
This Jungle Vine from One Charming Party is a great idea, and I think you could probably recycle paper bags for the vine, making it very inexpensive.
It’s kinda crazy how easy it is to make this Zebra Stripe Cake from My Cake School. I have got to try this.
A couple of basic paper shapes and some clothespins are all you need to make these stand-up animals from Estefi Machado.
This No Sew Leaf Girl Costume from Alpha Mom would be great for your rainforest girl.
These sweet Sleep Toy patterns from Livemaster remind me of some I had when I was a little kid.
I remember my kids coming home from school with rain sticks they had made, like these from The Imagination Tree.
Make play binoculars for your mini explorers with this DIY from Make Life Lovely.
I adore every single part of this Felt Safari Quiet Book from A Handmade Tale.
