pink the tail on the monkey

There are a few sock monkey party activities that peaked our interest this week, one of which you can buy straight out of our shop so we’ll start with that:

Good old fashioned pin the tail on the sock monkey, who needs a donkey!?  We love taking an idea that’s old and making it new again, and in all actuality the sock monkey is something old that’s kinda been made new again as well!  Very fitting!

These sock monkey puppets and fabric sock monkey cards are a couple crafts that will keep the kids busy and won’t break your bank.  Put some of your old craft scraps to good use!  Extra puppet plus, the kids can play with those at the party and they double as your goodie bag.  Oh how we love thee multi-functional party craft!!  Find the complete sock monkey puppet paper kit here.

For favors, a homemade sock monkey is an obvious option:

but if you aren’t the sewing type…

These sock monkey beenies are just $6.88 away ;) .

 Too expensive?  No Problem, these banana runt baggies are cute, easy and won’t break the bank:

 Simple, sweet, fun!

I have to admit I’m a bit torn writing this post today because it’s filled with bananas.

And I hate bananas.

But darn it they’re darn cute with the Sock Monkey theme and I am woman enough to acknowledge that.  Excuse me while I gag my way through this post.

Kick things off with a couple sandwich options including PB & J and PB & Bananas:

Next up these banana puddings are theme friendly and chocolate pudding cups match the color scheme while giving you a bit of variety (you know, for the banana haters):

You could also do an array of banana nut muffins amongst blueberry and or poppyseed muffins.  Again the blue in the blueberry and poppyseed match the color scheme while the banana is all monkey.

For sweets we thought cookies and color coordinate candy paired with, wait for it, banana treats hit the spot:

Are those cookies cute or what!?  The banana split bar is festive fun as well!

Because sock monkey’s are indeed an old fashioned toy, we thought an old fashioned drink paired the best:

Chocolate milk or regular milk will go great in the re-purposed frappucino bottles or opt for the ever so sweet root beer float!

Keep in mind you have plenty other food options if you keep with the “red, white, blue, and brown” color scheme, these are just a few we thought were fun.  If you haven’t entered to win a digital “you print” invite good for any party in our shop yet, be sure to leave a comment on any post this week and you’re in!  Tomorrow we’ll be chatting about favors and activities that go great with the sock monkey theme, you won’t want to miss it.

Have we mentioned that we can take nearly ANY of our party themes and customize them for twins/triplets/siblings/you name it!?  Well now we have I guess.

When Madeliene and Luke’s mom contacted us about taking our Sock Monkey Party and doubling things up for her twins we were thrilled to help and even more thrilled she posted photos on pinterest:


Those are two of the sweetest little sock monkeys we’ve ever seen!

The amazing photos were taken by Visual Image Photography and the entire event turned out flawless.  This was so much fun seeing our decor doubled up!
