Toddler Party Ideas and Inspo!
Your baby is hitting the terrible two’s, and you want to throw a great toddler party so every little person can have a great time (without too many tantrums right!!). Well here is our list of top 10 toddler party ideas to get your next party rockin!
- Soft Play Hire – Kind of like an outdoor playcentre! Think balls, foam mats and lots of soft structures to build as you wish. This will keep the kids entertained and is safe, brightly coloured and fun. There are many different shapes and sizes so the party can be held in any location / room.
- Treasure Hunt – every child (big and small) love a good treasure hunt. Place toys, objects, and lollies around the back yard and set up clues for the little one’s to find them. You can do it in colours for the younger toddlers.
- Bubbles – a bubble machine can provide hours of entertainment for kids! Some machines can blow huge bubbles. How many can you catch / pop is a great game!
- The Snake Race is like an egg and spoon race, but with the snakes over their noses – they have to run from one side to the other without it dropping.
- Set up a Shaving Cream station – this is a messy and fun activity that is best done outdoors. Simply squirt some shaving cream onto a tray (ensure there is plastic cover underneath) with a few dollops of food colour and let them squelch and mix the colours.
- You can’t go past a good game of ‘What’s the Time Mr Wolf‘ – a favourite for any child aged between 1 and 10!!
- Duck Duck Goose – need I say more?! The BEST GAME EVER!
- Freeze Dancing – Put on some tunes and let them dance away until you press ‘pause’ – the last one to FREEZE is out!
- Fishing Game – Pop some prizes into a large box and attach a paper clip to each. The kids can ‘fish’ for a prize with their stick and string with a magnet attached to each. Kids really love this game, so you may need lots of small prizes.
- Jumping castle is an effective way to keep them outside, and busy for hours. At Jumpin’ Around we have a huge selection, and some smaller castles that are perfect for the toddlers.
