Age characteristics

Toddlers like being the center of attention! They enjoy other children but may have difficulty interacting with each other while they play. They also love to feel they have accomplished something such as memorizing words to a song or placing that last block on top of the ABC tower.

Guest list

Toddlers  enjoy being with other children. If your child is in a play group, invite the children in the group. Or invite the children of your family, friends, and neighbors. Keep in mind that they may get afraid when the adult accompanying is not present so account for a few extra adults.

Length of party

1- 1 ½ Hours

Entertainment for age

Children at this age tire easily so try to keep the party simple and flexible so that you can keep their attention. They are beginning to learn about themselves and the world around them.  They enjoy singing, dancing, finger and copying games.

Toddlers sometimes get confused with what is real and pretend, therefore entertainers such as clowns and make-believe characters are great to amuse them.


Keep games short and simple.

Follow the Leader

Sit in a circle and play finger games such as :

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

This Little Piggy

Pat-a Cake, Pat-a-Cake

Safety for age

Childproof your home, covering sockets and closing off bedroom doors, exit and entry ways so that children don’t wander. Avoid foods and items that are choking hazards, such as broken balloons, small party favors, hard candles, hot dogs and popcorn.
