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.

Valentine’s Day Party

Valentine Party Pack

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for grown ups anymore. Hearts are making an appearance into more children’s birthday parties now a days. Check out this exclusive party excerpt from Linda Kaye’s Party Book.


Sweeten up the invitation by sending along a small heart-shaped box of chocolates.

Party Settings

Invite the partygoers to help ‘decorate’ the room by dressing in pinks and reds. A vase with pink roses will make an elegant centerpiece and the pale pink buds will inspire guests to create their own delicate buttercream blossoms. Scatter red rose petals on the party table for a dreamy accent to the decor, and switch your usual light bulbs to pink ones to cast a rosy glow in the room. For an extra touch of Valentine’s Day charm, use large doilies as placemats and tie napkins with bows made of red licorice strings.

Party Fun & Games

Fill a pastry bag with pink, red and silver foil-wrapped candy kisses [and guess how many are in the bag.]

Valentine’s Day Menu

Think pink and red when planning the menu! Use cookie cutters to make heart shaped sandwiches filled with strawberry cream cheese. A silver bowl filled with fresh strawberries adds that special touch, especially when accompanied by a plate of confectioners sugar for dipping.

[Set up the valentine tables with these personalized placemats. They look beautiful on the table and are a great favor to take home.]

Party Beverage

Mix up a pretty-in-pink punch with ginger ale and strawberry sherbert  [served in Disposable Champagne Glasses] . Adults can sip on pink champagne as they toast the cake creation of their budding chefs.

Party Fun

Let the children select from a trunk filled with pearls , boas , and hats before they sit down to enjoy their special cake. This fanciful dress may even inspire a visit from Prince Charming himself!
