4. Game Day Celebration

I know games are usually a big success at parties. Imagine a party where this was the theme! There are many games toddlers can enjoy, since they are very good at turning anything into a game. Bean bags can be made for throwing games, jumping competitions can be modified for little legs, and obstacle courses tend to be a huge hit with toddlers.
3. Jungle Animals

The animals of the jungle are creatures that fascinate toddlers, since they are so different than the ones seen in everyday life. Meeting at the zoo before the party is an excellent way to get them even more excited about jungle animals. I find Decorating the cake with a jungle scene adds to the excitement and face painting at the end of the party is a great way to let kids look like their favorite zoo animal.
2. Favorite Disney Character

There are so many paper plates, napkins, and general decorations with just about any Disney character imaginable. Toddlers often have a favorite character that they love to talk about. Most kids have toys, games, or t-shirts that revolve around this same person or animal. If there is a specific character that all the toddlers attending like, then the theme could be about that Disney favorite instead of many different ones. I’ve found that parents are very helpful when involved with a theme such as this.
1. Bring Your Favorite Book

I find reading to be a very important part of growing up, so bed time always involved reading a book after teeth were brushed and jammies were on. A lot of toddlers have a book at home that gets read to them more than other books, because they choose it over all the rest. Sharing a favorite book can be an excellent way to introduce new reading material to other toddlers and parents alike. A new picture book could be sent home as a party favor at the end of the event.
There are many other types of themes that toddlers would enjoy, but these are 7 of my favorites. Have you come up with something different? What themed party has been your biggest success? Please share your ideas!
