- Is singing Daniel Tiger songs one of your main parenting techniques? (No judgment here. It works.)
- Does your kiddo choose Daniel every time there’s a choice?

If this is you, read on! I’ve gathered the best the internet has to offer for your little one’s next birthday: a Daniel Tiger party. It’s perfect!
Even if your party is just for family, in this post-covid world, you can still make it memorable for your special little kid!
Daniel Tiger Party Decorations Made Simple
We can’t all be Martha Stewart.
But we can be her lesser-known sister, Mabel. Mabel outsources. Mabel puts her hard-earned dollars to work and design a beautiful party that takes less time to pull together than it did baking the cake.
For example, Mabel would pick up a red plastic tablecloth and a roll of polka-dot wrapping paper for the gift/food table. DONE!
Mabel would also invest in some paper goods and balloons that find the perfect balance between cheap and festive. Here are some affordable options for you to consider.
Daniel Tiger Party Foods the Kids Will Actually Eat
Do your friends a favor and avoid sending the party guests home skipping on a sugar high.
Sure, there will be sweets. (This is a party, after all…) But with some creative presentations, you may be surprised at how many tiny fists grab the carrots!
Besides the ones below, I would also take a peek at this Pizza Dip Clock or this Veggie Spaghetti. Both would be perfect for a special birthday dinner!
