Tots and Tails | EcoTarium

Tots and Tails

Everyone loves a parade!

For this birthday party designed especially for toddlers (ages 2 to 4), you invite your child's friends to bring along their favorite stuffed animal. The birthday child and guests will make an animal mask for themselves, put on a matching tail, and then decorate a party hat for their stuffed animal buddy.  Then they'll all parade through the EcoTarium, past all kinds of exhibited animals, to the delight of everyone watching!

Afterwards, there will be time for cake and gifts, plus an assortment of birthday party games (including Feed Slydell the Otter, Siegfried Says, and Animal Bingo).
