A lot of people have a kids especially toddler, when your toddler will celebrate a party I think you will be confused to decide about great ideas for him party. You can transform any event from ho-hum to loads of fun with indoor or outdoor party games for kids with a little preparation and a few inexpensive items.
Here Consider the following toddler party ideas:
ABCs. Learning the alphabet is a big deal for toddlers, so an ABC theme is a natural choice. One way to do this is to find plates and streamers that feature all of the letters of the alphabet. Alternatively, you can choose just the letter of your child’s name and focus the theme around that letter, for example, by creating foods that start with the letter like Patty’s pizza and Bobby’s birthday burgers.
Indoor Party Games
You’ll need to have some indoor party games ready if you are planning kids’ birthday party activities or are preparing for a large group of kids in a small space. And, when in doubt, you can always go with classics like Duck-Duck-Goose and Simon Says.
What you need: soft tossing object, such as a beanbag or rolled socks
Some games can educate children without their ever knowing it. In this game, children should sit in a circle, and one child starts the game. The child holds the soft item and tosses it to another child while saying either “Earth,” “Air,” “Fire” or “Water.” Then the child should count to 10 rapidly. The catcher must name a creature that lives in that element (for example, Air=eagle). If the child throwing the item says “Fire,” the catcher must stay silent until the child finishes counting to 10. If the catcher can’t respond by the time limit, places a creature in the wrong element (Earth=whale), or talks when they should stay silent, they must move out of the circle, and it closes up. The game continues until one player is left.
Sesame Street. What child doesn’t love Sesame Street. Elmo is the current favorite for most toddlers–they just can’t resist that cuddly guy, so what parent can resist using him as the theme. You can also find goods that use all of the Sesame Street characters. Use a Sesame Street theme only with younger kids, as older ones may think that it’s too babyish.
Quest for the Ring
What you need: a piece of yarn long enough to make a 6- to 8-foot circle; a costume jewelry ring that can fit in the palm of a child’s hand, but not small enough to pose a choking hazard
Let children get in touch with their theatrical side. Thread the ring onto the yarn and tie the ends together. Children form a circle and hold the string in front of them so it is tight. One child stands in the center, ready to spot the ring. On “Go,” the all the players pretend to pass the ring to their neighbor along the string, while the real ring is also being passed. They are trying to prevent the seeker from spotting it, so children should use lots of hand motion all at once and plenty of bluffing. When the ring is found, whoever was holding it goes to the center and the seeker takes their place on the string.
What you need: a balloon and piece of yarn for each child. Children should have a balloon tied to their ankle with the piece of yarn. At the signal, they stomp around and try to pop another’s balloon. The last child with an un-popped balloon is the winner. However, balloon-popping games may be scary for younger kids.
Colors. You can’t get any more simple than using a color as the theme of the party. Ask you child for his favorite color and use that for the theme. Purchase balloons in that color and plates and other accessories. The best part is that solid color items are typically less expensive than those with characters.
Disney. There are many different styles of Disney themes to choose from. Look for the character that your child likes best. This might be the classic Mickey Mouse, or maybe a Lion King or a Disney princess theme.
Animals. If your child loves animals–and most do–then you could choose that as your theme. For example, you could select his favorite animal and create a party theme based on that. You could also do groups of animals, like a barnyard or jungle theme.
Outdoor Party Games
The following children’s party games help kids burn off some energy and get really messy.
What you need: A big bowl packed full of flour; a tray; a spoon; a smallish treat, such as a mini candy bar or jumbo marshmallow
Place the tray on top of the flour bowl and carefully turn it upside down so that, when the bowl is lifted, it makes a flour mound. Carefully place the treat, which represents the baby, on top. Children must take turns removing a spoonful of flour without causing the baby to fall. Whoever causes the treat to tumble must eat the treat out of the flour without hands.
Once you’ve chosen a theme for your toddler party, you can build the decorations around that–get plates, napkins, balloons, banners and so on that all feature the theme. You can also get creative with the party food and incorporate the theme into the food, with an Elmo shaped cake or dog-shaped sandwiches. When you do all of this, you’re sure to have a memorable toddler party.
