DIY Barnyard Party Ideas

The cow goes moo.
The pig goes oink.
The sheep goes baa.
The rooster goes cocka-doodle-doo.
These are facts.

We all learn these facts at a very young age.  Apparently, we have decided, as a society, that one of the most important things to know as a small child is the various sounds made by the animals of the barnyard.  And not a single child has ever disagreed.  No child has ever filed a grievance.  No objections, no protests, not even so much as a quibble. And why?

Because all little children love barnyard animals, that’s why. It’s why petting zoos make all that coin.  It’s why Old MacDonald remains at the top of the charts after almost a hundred years. And it’s why our Barnyard party supplies are consistently one of the most popular themes we have.  And with all of these barnyard parties everywhere, it can be hard to find a way to make your child’s party stand out from the rest.
