My son loves the show
Go, Diego, Go!
so it was easy to come up with the theme for his third birthday.
Most of these ideas could also be used for a Jungle theme party.
They also doubled as a game. We hid small toy snakes, frogs, and lizards in the "grass." When the time came we told the kids where to look and let them keep what they found.

This was the other game we played. It also used decorations. From our computer I printed out "Click the Camera" cards with animal tracks in the lens. Then I printed several more tracks to tape around the party. I used my Cricut to create the animals, but you could easy find pictures on the internet too.
The kids drew a click the camera card then matched it to the tracks on the
wall and followed it to the animal that left the prints.
I really liked this game because the kids weren't into it beforehand; the
leaves hiding the animals just looked like decorations.
These were the favors. "Rescue Packs" purchased at, you guessed it, the DS!
I used craft foam sheets and permanent markers to make the features and hot glue to attach them.
