Pin The Tail on the Monkey
- monkey poster
- construction paper
A birthday party classic! (Basically the same as pin the tail on the donkey) Get a cartoon monkey poster or fashion one out of construction paper. Make construction paper tails for each party guest and put tape on one side. Give each guest a blindfolded turn to try to pin the tail on the monkey!
- yellow construction paper
A great way to have the kids monkey around! Cut out construction paper bananas (5 for each party guest) and hide them around your house or party space. Let them look around for 20 minutes. When a kid finds a banana, have them shout Ooo, ooo, ooo, ahh, ahh, ahh! The child with the most bananas at the end wins!
Monkey Tail Sandwiches
Estimated Total Time: 15 minutes
- hot dogs
- hot dog buns
- condiments (ketchup, mustard, relish)
Serve up good ol fashioned hotdogs and call them monkey tail sandwiches! Give the party guests a few options for toppings and serve with potato chips or sun chips.
Estimated Total Time: 20 minutes
- 1 box of Nilla Wafers
- 1 large box of instant banana pudding

Kids will go bananas for this delectable dessert! First, line a 2 quart bowl with Nilla Wafers. Cover with a layer of bananas, then cover that layer with another layer of wafers. Repeat this process until the bowl is about ¾ full. Prepare the pudding as instructed on the package and pour them over the cookies and bananas. Once covered, top the dessert with cool whip and crumble some wafers on top.
