||Farm Theme Party Ideas for the Petting Zoo Pony Birthday Party!
To complement your Perfect Pony Party or Traveling Petting Zoo Farm Party, any of these unique horse and farm themed party ideas, crafts, decorations or games will add to the festivities. We have seen these farm game activities at many of the birthday parties, company picnics, township community days and public events that the Friendly Farm Petting Zoo and Perfect Pony Ride Parties has been to in the Pennsylvania areas of Bucks County, Berks County, Chester County, Delaware County, Lehigh County, Montgomery County, Northampton County, Philadelphia County and the parts of Lancaster County PA along with Hunterdon and Warren Counties in NJ that we service.
Pick one farm party idea or many, they are all perfect for your Backyard Barnyard, Wild West or Princess Pony Party themed birthday!
The Complete Cowboy Party Package!
Every child loves dressing up like a cowgirl or cowboy at the party!
Many parents give the Complete Cowboy Package to each of the guests as their party favor, these may ordered from us along with your pony or petting zoo! Just let us know how many children and we'll deliver the Complete Cowboy packages when we arrive. The gift of a Complete Cowboy Package for each guest correlates perfectly with your farm themed party!
Each Complete Cowboy Package includes a child's straw cowboy hat, an authentic bandanna, and a gumby farm animal toy and is only $8.00 per child!
Children love to decorate their straw cowboy hats.
Set up a craft table with
stickers, glitter, puffy paint, beads etc. Then take
a Polaroid or Digital photograph of each child on the pony wearing their hat to send with their thank you cards.
Cowboy hats turned upside down are perfect bowls to hold chips, animal crackers, pretzels etc. on your picnic tables. Place a bandanna inside them to look more festive!
Bandannas are perfect for putting all the candy from the pinata in and also for favor bags.
Bandannas inside cowboy hats that are turned upside down to hold chips, animal crackers, pretzels etc. are festive on your picnic tables!
These really add to the theme and look great on tables before the kids take them home.
Bandannas tied on long sticks like hobo bags are very cute and easy to fill with party goodies.
Let the children make horseshoe shaped frames out of cardboard that they can decorate and then display the Polaroid of themselves riding the pony at home. Gluing a magnet on the back lets them hang it on the refrigerator.
Instead of baking a cake, how about a non-messy Brownie Cone? Take vanilla ice cream cones, fill with pre-packaged brownie mix and bake for the time specified on the box, then frost. It's like an ice-cream cone cake!
Pick the largest stuffed animal you have and have the kids try to "rope" it with clothesline for a roping contest!
Played the same as Simon Says, but say Trainer or Cowboy says. Kids can walk, trot, canter and jump small obstacles. Give out ribbons to the winners.
Stick Horse Race
Purchase dowel rods at a hardware store. Print off coloring pages of horse heads that the kids can color. Then staple the pony heads to the dowels, pick a starting spot and they're off! (Be sure to print one copy as a mirror image so you have two pony heads!)
Paper Bag Sheriff Vests
Use paper grocery bags, cutting out a vest design and have the kids decorate them...Adorable!
Pan for Pennies
Use any container filled with sand (you can buy playground sand at the hardware store), add pennies and
dig for "GOLD" using hands, beach sand sifters etc.
Decorate Horse Shoes
Horse shoes may be purchased online, kids like to decorate them using all types of craft supplies...they make great party favors and adorable picture frames.
Stick Horse Race!
Bales of Straw
for theme decoration as well as picture backgrounds and additional seating.
Needle in the Haystack
A Party Favorite!
(a little messy, but very fun) undo a bale of STRAW and make a mound, hide treasures for the kids to find.
The piles are great to hide small favors from the dollar store in! Simply break open and fluff up two or more bales of straw and hide small toys in the pile. Children absolutely love playing and digging through the piles to find their toys! Almost like piles of leaves in the fall to jump in!
Pin the Tail on the Pony/Donkey
Always a Party Favorite!
Pass the Pony
Hot Potato- but use a toy horse!
Cowboy Hat Toss
Kids try to toss a cowboy hat onto a rocking horse or stuffed animal!
Paper Cup Shoot
Line Paper cups up on your porch railing and have the kids "shoot" them off with water pistols.
If it is windy put a few candies in the cups!
Horse, Horse Pony
Duck Duck Goose for Farm Parties!
Kids walk around a circle (to western music of course!). When the music stops, they stop on a numbered horseshoe. The birthday child draws a number and the child on that horseshoe wins a cupcake!
Have the kids draw or decorate
an 8.5 X. 11 piece of paper and put there names on it, after the party, take to printing shop and have bound together atop calendar sheets...the birthday child can be reminded of their great birthday and friends all year.
Sack races and three legged races:
Tie the legs with your bandannas. Sacks are available at most party stores and even Walmart. Always a favorite party activity!
These links offer many farm and pony party accoutrements. Most of the items are for sale, however they do have some great ideas mixed in for free!
