What's a bash without a few party animals? Select your child's favorite -- we monkeyed around.
Cull stuffed animals from kids' rooms for a simple centerpiece (and ask guests to bring theirs). Your child can draw a picture and cut paper bananas for Pin the Banana on the Monkey. A banana cake is decorated to look like a monkey; it's set out on the table with fresh bananas, candies, and banana-flavored milk.
