Daniel Tiger Birthday Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Daniel Tiger Birthday Party

Welcome to Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood! Daniel, the son of Daniel Striped Tiger from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and his friends Katerina Kittycat and O the Owl cannot wait to help you celebrate your little one’s birthday. To get started, try a Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Party in a Box exclusively from Birthday Express on Amazon and then supplement your Daniel Tiger birthday party with special touches from some of our favorite Etsy sellers.

Just a quick note on Party Idea Pros approach to children’s parties. 

We have an “old fashion” approach to kids’ parties.  Keep them small, keep them short, and keep them simple.  We love hula hoopsbeach balls, crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and musical instruments.  Generally, the number of guests should equal the age of the birthday child, but don’t obsess if you are a few over or under — it is not worth the hurt feelings for an extra child or even two.   Never, ever deliver invitations at school, unless every single child is invited!!!!!   Skip the jumpies and the pony rides.

Coco is an educational, adorable and heart-warming animated film about Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). If you and your children are a fan of the movie seriously consider using the movie to inspire your next birthday party. Not only will your party be visually brilliant, its beautiful meaningful message will set your party apart from the rest, in only good ways! (This is a great theme for classroom parties as well).
