I'm planning to have a safari animal theme party for my son's 2nd birthday. It is next month, June 20th from 1-4pm, at a playhouse for kids 6 and under. Is this a good theme for a boy and is the time OK? We did his 1st birthday outside last year and it was too hot and it also rained. I want to keep it indoors this year and keep him entertained, but my husband wants to have it outside again.

I agree that 3 hours might be a little long, but it depends on your guests. When my middle son was two, a lot of his friends were 5 & 6 years old, and I've also hosted parties for little guys where some of the guests were 10 year old girls, who basically took over the running of the party games. I didn't have to do much of anything.

If your guests are all 2 & 3 year olds, 3 hours might be a little much, but if all the moms are there as well, and there are not too many guests it might be just fine. A good guideline for guests is the kids age plus one, unless you are doing some sort of family gathering that involves a mix of ages. I think your theme is very nice; it sounds like fun.

My little girl is turning 2 in May. She is 4 days older than her cousin. They both like Minnie Mouse and the mother doesn't want to throw a party together and I don't want to do the same theme as she is. I have no idea what kind of party to throw for a 2 year old. What should I do?

A two year old doesn't have any idea at all about parties. Any theme or colour scheme you choose, you do to please yourself, because you like it, want to do it, or think it is fun, and want pictures of your child with the fancy cake.

If your child has playmates or cousins who are older (4 to 8, say), they will appreciate a "theme". If you are inviting grandma, grandpa, aunties & uncles, and no kids, I am not sure that anyone would really appreciate a theme, other than for the photo op.

Birthday parties are not a competition, and two year olds don't need a bunch of other two year olds as guests; they are happier with aunties and grandmas, in my experience.

I'm pretty stumped. My son's going to be 2 in November and for his 1st party we just threw a little get together at home with family and close friends. I want to do something more this year, but it is going to be so cold out it's left me clueless what to plan for his special day. Any ideas? (Haven't got a big budget.)

A book or reading themed party is something we're considering for our three year old. Our library has a community room that's free to use as long as you reserve it in advance.

My daughter is turning 2 in August, and I've been trying to think of ways of celebrating her birthday. Her first birthday was uneventful. I really want her to have something a little special this year, considering that she's been attending everyone else's party. However, the big issue is that my boyfriend (her father) doesn't get along well with my family. There have been a lot of issues in the past, and I would like to avoid all of that. I've been considering two separate small celebrations, but I can see that is accumulating unnecessary cost. Any suggestions, tips or ideas? I'm drowning in stress and the day is approaching fast!

My little girl will be turning 2 in October and it is also her golden birthday. I would really like to go all out for her birthday but have no clue what theme I should go with. I tossed around the idea of everything being gold from the table cloth to the cake but I'm not sure if that is for a two year old.

She also has a lot of cousins anywhere from ages 9 months to 17. I would like to have activities for all ages to enjoy. I plan on doing an outdoors birthday because the family is so big and it is tough to fit them all in a house. Any help on this matter would sure be appreciated.

What about a "Bee Happy Birthday". You could do black and yellow decorations (like bumble bees) and write everywhere "Bee Happy for ______________ who is turning two today! I am sure you can find bumble bee decorations everywhere or print off your computer. The birthday child could wear a "bee happy" tshirt and you could get tshirts for the other kids or have the kids decorate their own. You could do games like a cake walk (but use bumblebee pictures for the children to walk on. Tell the children to fly like bumblebees while you play music and then stop the music and tell them to freeze. Goody bags could include bumble bee soap/stickers/candy. The birthday cake could be a bumble bee and say "Bee Happy for Susie's birthday!

Two year olds don't know about birthday parties. A party for a two year old is for the adult guests and older kids who come. No one needs goodie bags, unless you've invited a 5 or 8 year old cousin or someone like that.

Give them those little bubbles as a "gift". Serve cake and ice cream. Keep it simple. Balloons are nice for decorations -- two year olds like balloons. Do not attempt to "entertain" two year olds, and do not invite a flock of them for the party - they don't know what it is all about. Party plan - sing happy birthday, blow out candles, take photo, eat cake, open presents, play with presents. Adults visit.

My daughter is turning 2 years of age in May. I want to throw her a birthday party, but I really don't know any toddlers to invite. What do parents do in this situation?

Personally 2 is too young. Its more for your benefit, it very overwhelming for a toddler to have a bunch of kids of like age. It would be so much better just to have a small family party, and wait until they are old enough to understand the concept, like 6 and up.

My daughter's birthday party will be held on February 4th, a Saturday. I have no idea what to do. I live in Los Angeles and need some ideas as to what I can do besides having a birthday party at home.

The previous posters are correct, a two-year-old probably won't remember her second birthday. Invite your friends and family, watch her open the gifts and eat the cake and ice cream and take lots of pictures.

If you want to do theme parties, next year will probably be better. Then do a theme of her favorite cartoon, TV show, music, etc.

I need ideas for my 2 year old daughter's birthday party in October. I live in Michigan so you never know what the weather will be in October. I can't afford some of these party places that charge a million dollars a kid. Any thoughts are appreciated!

A birthday party for a 2 year old is not supposed to be a lavish affair. It is for close friends and family. If your child has older cousins or playmates that are 4 or 6, these kids get a kick out of the party. You don't have to have games or anything. A decorated cake and presents and just let the little kids play and the adults visit. That's it for the entertainment.

One of my sons has his birthday on Nov 6, and when he was about 3, I think, we "themed" his party so he could wear his Hallowe'en costume again, he and his brother had been "Batman" so we had a Batman cake and they wore their costumes again.

My son is going to be 2 on 2/15/2009 and I am at a loss for what to do for his party besides having the theme 'Cars'. He loves that movie! He will only have a few cousins there for kids, and their ages range from 8 months to 11. I'm looking for ideas that might be good for games for the kids, and ideas on how to make sure the adults are not bored either!
