Invitations and Thank you notes:
I put a wallet size picture of G from the party on the outside of the thank you note. The note was written on the back.

I removed wrappers from cans of fruit and washed them out. I then wrapped covers around the cans that had hippos stamped on them along with the hippos I made for the invitations. The covers can be removed and the cans can be recovered for another party.
First we made binoculars to use on a hippo hunt. We glued 2 toilet paper tubes together and wrapped card stock around the outside of them. 2 holes were punched to attach yarn. The kids decorated them with stickers.
Hippo Hunt Song:
After making the binoculars we put them on and sat down for a song. I googled 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' and found a YouTube video with song. We sang the song and did the movement with the song. We said hippo hunt rather than bear hunt in the appropriate places.
The Hippo Hunt:
We followed clues in search of a hippo. The clues lead us to several different areas both inside and outside. The hippo was hiding in some grass!

Hippo Toss Game:
I used a poster board to create this hippo. My husband used wood to make the stand to attach the poster board to. It can be removed so we can create a new poster to use with future parties.
I was so surprised when I was able to find these hippo plates and napkins!
Party Favor Bags:
I stamped 'Thanks' on the outside of a white paper bag along with a stamp of a hippo. I took G to the dollar store to pick out some goodies for his friends.
