- Music is their thing: Encourage them to dance and sing as they go about their party business.
Masked mayhem: The concept of masquerade is quite fun for little kids, especially if they get the chance to make their own mask (which will occupy those busy fingers for a good deal of the allocated party time). Try printing these animal mask templates and let them loose with glue, sequins, glitter and textas.
Storybook themes: Build your birthday party idea around your child’s favourite book characters or story. It could be as traditional as Snow White and Robin Hood or as modern as Where The Wild Things Are.
Alphabet ABC party: As the kids will be getting to know their letters, this could be fun. Whether it’s A for apple or Z for Zebra, most kids will recognise letters and particularly the initial of their own name. You could make a letter for each guest and then bring the party to an end with a birthday cake created in the shape of the first letter of your child’s name.
