My son is turning 2 in about a week, his birthday theme is cars. All I'm missing is the games for the kids, most of them are going to be around his age. I don't know what games they should play?

Most two year olds are not very good at group games. Some might play with older kids, but if your guests are all about 2, I hope you don't have very many of them. Something really simple like Duck, Duck, Goose might work. I think I would take them to a playground and let them play on the equipment, or someplace like a McDonald's with those ball pits.
Realistically, maybe you should just let them play with toys. How about they all get a couple little cars right off the bat, and just let them play roads and stuff in the dirt. Presents, eat, cake, and that's it. You might try making balloon animals. I have done that at parties.

My daughter is turning two early next month! We are having a Mickey Mouse party for her, because she loves Mickey! I am in need of fun (frugal) games that children, ages 2-10 can all play. Any help would be very helpful.

Duck pond - even on the inside in the winter this is fun to play. Take any small tub or plastic basin fill half way with water put in any matching plastic toys that float like rubber duckies. Put numbers on the bottom of each or a mark say like Mickey head drawing, dip them out with a soup ladle or fish net. Kids love it!
Bubble blowing - give them all a bubble bottle to blow. Dollar Tree has a tiny 4 pack that look like ice cream cones and are scented bubbles vanilla, chocolate, etc. (02/21/2008)
