Cakes, candles, friends, and balloons are enough to bring forth happy memories of our birthdays as a toddler. This is one day that the old a...
1. Garden Theme
Kids love sand, mud, and water. So if you don't want your home interior to be disturbed and yet ensure each child at your toddler's birthday enjoys to the fullest, a garden themed party will do the magic. You will need an open garden area, a temporary sand pit, watering containers, mud, and some plant pots. Once the cake is cut and the candle is blown, the kids can enjoy an eco-friendly time rolling in the sand and planting seeds and saplings in the pots. Adult supervision is mandatory for a party theme like this. And once they are tired, the refreshments will recharge the tired souls.
2. Storybook Theme
Pick your child's favorite storybook and set the party theme based on the story. Make cut outs of the characters in the book. You can also design the cake based on the book. Then have some fun props to let the tiny guests choose their favorite characters and dress accordingly. This wonderful birthday idea will bring your child's fantasy characters to life!
3. Spooky Theme
Children love spooky things. So if your child's birthday is anywhere near Halloween, it is a good idea to bring in the spook factor in the birthday. Decorate the birthday venue with cute ghosts such as Casper and characters from his or her favorite spook programs. Keep candies hidden in different places and let the children have a fun time searching for them. You could also keep props in store to dress them up as wizards and witches.
4. Magic Theme
Most toddlers are enthralled with magic. So why not surprise your toddler on his or her birthday with a magical birthday party? You can hire a magician to keep the little ones engaged in a funny magic show. You could also arrange for star wand and broomsticks, witch hats and capes so that the tiny guests can don the role of their favorite magical characters. With some simple DIY tricks, you can also make magic drinks that will fill the tiny tots with glee.
5. Campsite Theme
If your child is an outdoor person and loves adventure, why not make his or her birthday truly special with a campsite party. Find a safe and suitable place for camping. A large garden space can also serve as the campsite if you cannot find a real outdoor camping zone in your vicinity. Pitch colorful tents for the kids and let them have an adventurous time outdoors. Give each little guest a camping kit with high-energy snacks and drinks for the real feel of camping.
6. Pet Theme
Is your toddler in love with animals? A pet theme party can just be the best thing for your little one. Invite his or her friends and also their pets. It is better to have a particular animal as a theme as mixing cats, dogs, birds and guinea pigs is not a great idea! If the dog is the pet you wish to choose, the party decorations can be real doggy. It will be a good way to entertain your tiny guests with friendly woofs and licks.
7. Baking & Cooking Theme
Toddlers love to mimic adults and are forever inquisitive about our chores. So a baking and cooking birthday party will give them a taste of their own food, quite literally. For this theme, you will need adult supervision. Let the toddlers play with flour dough and moulds, stir and mix stuff and prepare cookies and cakes. Imagine their happiness, when they sing happy birthday and then take a slice of cake that they have made!
These are just a few ideas to make your toddler's birthday party a fun and memorable event. You can take bits and pieces from each idea and create your own special birthday party theme for your little one. Every year is a new adventure as parents and I hope you enjoy every moment of it.
