Bananas in Pyjamas is a children's television show about two bananas, B1 and B2, who happen to wear striped bananas. The show premiered in 1992 and became popular with young children. If your child wants a Bananas in Pyjamas themed party, you can theme the invitations, games and activities and dessert around the show.


Your invitations should reflect the theme when planning your Banana in Pyjamas' birthday party. Themed invitations tell your guests in advance what the party's premise is. You might find it hard to find premade invitations with Bananas in Pyjamas on them and making your own may be your only option.

Use a banana shaped cookie cutter to trace the shape of a banana on cardstock and cut it out. Write your party information onto the cardstock. Tie in the party theme by indicating on the invitations that guests come dressed in their pyjamas.


Choosing banana themed creative activities will get the party going.One activity is "dress the banana." Give each guest should have their own banana. Offer them plenty of craft supplies, such as googly eyes, felt and yarn, or even old doll clothes, to dress up their own bananas. The guests can decorate their banana, similar to a Mr. Potato head.

Play games using bananas. For example, you can have relay races where the players must carry a banana under their chins or on a wooden spoon.


Most birthday parties have a cake as the dessert but your bananas in pyjamas birthday party should have banana splits instead. Banana splits can also be an activity, with the guests making their own. Provide them with different ice cream flavours, toppings and whipped cream.

If you want to provide a cake instead of banana splits, consider a banana-flavoured cake. For decorations you can carve the cake into the shape of a banana in pyjamas and frost it appropriately. If you have cake decorating abilities, use fondant instead of frosting.
