Make On the Farm Birthday Invitations

A down on the farm party is a popular fun theme for children celebrating a first birthday especially in the spring when the baby animals are abound. Under five year old kids are newly becoming acquainted with farm animals through television programs, story books and nursery rhymes like Old MacDonald had a farm.

Homemade farm party invitation ideas

If your child is in love with the farm theme and you find yourself throwing a barnyard bash you may chose to make your own party invitations. Here are just a few ideas to help you make the cutest party invites with an assortment of different craft materials.

Barnyard party invitations

Petting food for a petting zoo invitation

Place some pet food pellets in a small sealed bag or envelop (make sure that it is clearly labeled and you might want to ensure it can only be opened by an adult) create a small rectangular tag large enough to fit the party invitation details. Punch a small hole in the top left corner and tie it to the pet food bag with a piece of twine or string.

post your invitations in brown craft colored envelopes.

Bale of hay

At a craft fair one day I was able to purchase some super small bales of real hay. They were for home decor but we thought they'd look great with a small tag invitation attached to it with string. You could then give them out by hand to your party guests.

Photo invitations

There are plenty of opportunities to incorporate your child's photo into an invitation design.

Farm animal invitations

Cut out some farm animal shapes from crafting card and write the party details directly on to the back. I find that animal heads are easier to reproduce.
