Kick up the fun factor at your next birthday event with these birthday party supplies – zoo animal straws! The best part is your guest can use them at the party and take them home as favors.

This is what you'll need to get:

  • 3” cookie cutters of various animals (Substitute other shapes for a different theme.)
  • Colored construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Penknife

This is what you'll need to do:
  • Take one of your animal cookie cutters and lay it out on the construction paper.
  • Trace the shape with a pencil and trim with the penknife on top of the mat cutting board.
  • Mark two parallel 1/2” slits, 3/4” apart with the pencil. Place them in the center of the animal shape.
  • Cut slits with penknife.
  • Thread animal shape onto drinking straw so that it is about 3” below the drinking end.
