Daniel Tiger Birthday Ideas
Daniel Tiger Birthday Cakes
This two-layer cake with Daniel Tiger on the top layer and the neighborhood on the bottom is super cute, but the blue Tigey smash cake is so precious! Tigey is Daniel Tiger’s plush toy, and he’s the perfect subject for a smash cake for 1-year-olds. | Brite & Bubbly
The trolley topper on this two-layer neighborhood cake is a cute little keepsake for parents to add to the scrapbook or memory box. | Making Memories with My Minis
We love the simplicity of the design on this blue two-layer Daniel Tiger cake with a trolley and figurine on top. | Catch My Party
Daniel Tiger’s bungalow makes a great cake, too! This two-tiered cake has the bungalow on top and the neighborhood (with the trolley) on the bottom. Isn’t that adorable? | Patty Cakes Bakery
Daniel Tiger Birthday Party Foods
Prep a bunch of these castle sandwiches before the party. They look like Prince Wednesday’s castle! | Creative Kid Snacks
Tiger Tails are a popular snack for tiger-themed parties, and they’re super simple to make. Just dip pretzel rods in orange candy melts, and when that is set, drizzle with black candy melts to create the tiger effect. | Chelsey’s Messy Apron
Marshmallow tiger tails are another option. Skewer marshmallows, and follow the same steps to coat them into orange candle melts and drizzle with black. These are just like the Tigger tails snacks at Disneyland! | Jamonkey
The Daniel Tiger stand-up cookies spelling the child’s name is so cute. It really makes the dessert table pop, although everything looks beautiful and delicious. Even if you’re not much of a baker or cookie decorator yourself, you could recreate these with simple letter cookies and sugar cookie icing, with a cardstock version of the characters “attached” to the cookie with a little frosting. | Brite & Bubbly
Tiger cake pops are an easy treat to make. Just use your favorite cake ball recipe, and instead of dipping them in the usual chocolate, dip them in orange candy melts instead and then drizzle with black candy melts. | Lark and Lola
Make Tiger-tastic Jello cups for the kids. These are so cute! All you need are orange Jello cups, some googly eyes, and a maker to draw the faces. | Pichea Place
Mandarin orange tiger cups are another easy and fun option. | Patty Cakes Bakery
Want another sweet treat to add to your dessert table? Make these O the Owl Rice Krispie Treat Pops! They’d also make great party favors… just pop a cellophane bag over each one, tie with a ribbon, and you’re all set. | Spot of Tea Designs
Tiger cookies—Oreo cookies dipped in orange or black candy melts—are super simple. | Lark and Lola
Use patterned duct tape as water bottle labels instead of paper ones. The tape stays put, even in ice. And although the tape is technically zebra patterned, it could also be white tiger patterned! Anything with stripes will work for a tiger party. | Fab Everyday
Daniel Tiger Birthday Party Decor
Put up a welcome sign on your door using this free printable. The colorful garland draping the photo frame adds to the look. | Child at Heart
Make your own DIY tassel garlands to add pops of color throughout your home or venue for the party. You can always save them and reuse them for future parties! | Mama Needs a Manual
All of the decor at this party looks completely amazing, but one thing that stood out to us was the balloon table centerpiece. What a clever idea. In fact, all of the balloon installations at the party are grrr-ific, with foil Daniel Tigers and gold #1 balloons popping out everywhere. | Brite & Bubbly
Set up a gorgeous backdrop for your tables or for taking photos using black and orange streamers, pom pom, and balloons. You don’t even have to buy tiger print balloons; inexpensive orange ones will work just fine. Simply use a flat-tipped Sharpie to draw stripes on them. | Fab Everyday
Use chalkboards to add decor to your party, just add Daniel Tiger quotes. This a great idea because you can always use the chalkboards again, whereas signs and banners typically get thrown out. Here, you’ll find a few different chalkboard themes for a Daniel Tiger birthday. | Mama Needs a Manual
These large Daniel Tiger character cutouts not only provide decoration for the party, but it’s a fun photo op for the kids to take their picture beside all the characters. It’s especially cute for toddlers who are about the same size as the characters! | Oh Happy Play
Daniel Tiger Birthday Party Favors
Small favor bags with the characters on the front are super cute! You can recreate these on the cheap, though, using bags from the Dollar Tree and printouts of the characters that you make at home. | Making Memories with My Minis
Instead of party hats, provide Prince Wednesday’s crowns for the kid guests to wear at the party or take home as a souvenir. You can make these yourself, so it’s a great inexpensive party favor. | Catch My Party
Create inexpensive tiger-themed favor bags with things like mini basketballs, orange slinkies, toy tigers, orange friendship bracelets, orange and black lollipops, etc. Anything orange and black will work for the bags! | No Biggie
Every kid party needs some Daniel Tiger noisemakers to blow after the birthday song! Add a Daniel Tiger Quote sign that reads “Music Man Stan’s Horn Shop” to continue the Daniel Tiger theme. | Catch My Party
Daniel Tiger Birthday Party Crafts & Activities for Kids
Face painting would be a huge hit at a Daniel Tiger birthday party. If you can’t hire someone to do this for you, you could do a relatively simple version of some whiskers and a nose. | Fab Everyday
So much to do, So much to see
Ride the little ones around in style at the birthday party in your own DIY Daniel Tiger Trolley. It would be such a cute photo op for the birthday boy or girl and their guests. | Wholesale Halloween Costumes
Won’t you ride along with me?
This tiger paper plate craft would make a fun activity for the kids to do at the party. You can cut down on the crafting time a bit (as well as the mess) by providing orange paper plates instead of painting white ones. Pre-cutting stripes, as well as the nose and mouth, will also save time. | No Time for Flash Cards
For another simple craft idea, try this tiger paper bag puppet. You can have orange bags ready and pre-cut all the pieces before the party. Put the pre-cut pieces for each tiger puppet in an individual baggy along with a glue stick so you can distribute them easily to each child at the party. Kids could also take these home to assemble them if you don’t have enough time at the party to complete a craft. | Arty Crafty Kids
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor
In Daniel Tiger’s neighborhood!
We hope you have a tiger-rific party!
