2nd birthday party ideas can make your kids’ birthday to be more unique and special. You may use your own creativity as well to come out with impressive ideas for celebrating the birthday. Some great examples include the fairy princess party, cupcake party, as well as the outdoor party.
Second birthdays are enjoyable because toddlers are much more social than they were at their one-year mark. Two-year-olds have short attention spans and are prone to napping. Keep the 2nd birthday party toddler-friendly by offering suitable activities for your child’s peer group.
You may Centre the party on the bold or bright colour that your son seems to like most. If there isn’t a favourite that you can tell, use a couple of colours such as red, blue and yellow. Let the children play with large, soft balls in those colours, blow bubbles with bubble wands, or play with clay or play dough. Edible dough may work best with this age group.
A great way to keep 2-year-olds happy is to make birthday parties outdoors. Bring along a very large sheet and some healthy but kid-friendly picnic food, such as cold chicken legs, deli sandwiches, string cheese, vegetable strips, and cut-up fruit. Play fun picnic games with the kids, such as singing “The Ants Go Marching One By One” while you pretend to be a marching band, decorating a plain picnic basket by adding stickers to it, and collecting pieces of nature for a nature collage. What should you do if it rains? Hold the picnic in your basement or in another large, indoor area.
Young kids love listening to music, so you can make music the theme of your 2-year-old’s birthday party. Decorate the walls with cut-outs of black music notes, include the phrase “Let’s make music together” on the invitation, and make sure to have music piping through the house as soon as the first kids start to come. The kids can play games like musical chairs, freeze dance, and “Name That Tune” with basic kid songs. Buy some singing birthday candles, and make the cake in the shape of a guitar or another musical instrument.
A fairy princess party is appropriate for a second birthday and can also be enjoyed by older guests who attend. Decorate tables with purple and pink tablecloths, napkins, plates, hats and other party favours. Sprinkle sliver glitter across the table to give the look of “fairy dust.” Give the birthday girl a princess crown, a wand and a pair of fairy wings to wear at her party. Provide your guests with their own set of fairy wings to wear. Decorate the room with fairy dolls, twinkle lights and steamers from the ceiling with string or fishing line.
A festive and bright cupcake themed party is an excellent choice for a second birthday party. Little kids will love having their own cupcake at the party. Decorate the room with purple and pink table cloths and purchase cupcake shaped balloons. Also, purchase items such as colourful streamers and cupcake cardboard cut-outs to hang on the walls. Try arranging the cupcakes to make various shapes or one big cupcake design. Serve individual cupcakes to each child.
If you prefer a seated event, plan a fantasy land theme lunch for your little boy’s 2nd birthday. Cover the table with a bright yellow or orange coloured fabric. On top of the fabric, place a sheet of cellophane so that it covers the entire table surface. Next, use a hot glue gun to create gumball place mats for each guest. To achieve this, create a rectangular outline of a place mat using multi-coloured gumballs. In the centre of the table place broccoli heads and grape tomatoes as a garden. Next, fill a shallow bowl with blue candy and place goldfish shaped crackers throughout. Use your imagination to build an exotic land of finger food for your toddler’s big day.
