Birthday Party Tips

  • Make sure that the party does not continue for a long time. For toddlers, an hour or hour and a half is a good time span before attention runs out.

  • While choosing a location, besides your home, it is best to choose someplace where independent play is encouraged, like parks and indoor playhouses where it will be easy to keep the kids entertained.
  • Invitations for toddler birthday parties should not be elaborate. Handwrite the basic information on the card with crayons, and add a picture of your birthday boy or girl.
  • Give out favors to all the kids while the birthday boy or girl is opening gifts so that the other kids are entertained throughout the gift opening.
