My son will turn 2 in February. We live in Sacramento, Ca. and the weather may still be too cold and rainy to have an outdoor party. I would like to know if anybody has any ideas. He loves the Wiggles and the Disney Playhouse. I can get party items but I was wondering about entertainments. Any ideas?

what about a puppet show? you could make your own decorative puppet stand or I think toys r us sells one. And you could borrow other friends kids stuffed animals that he has not seen before to use as puppets. Just place a sock over your hand so its not visable while you are holding up the stuffed animals. You could even print the wiggles characters on paper glue to hard stock and use them as the puppets, maybe make up a song with your sons name in it to sing and even make a little cloth draw sting bag for the puppets to hold out to the kids audience to let the kids reach in for a treat. just an idea, hope the party is a great one for him. Bean bag toss is also fun, decorate a box cut 3 differant size holes in the bottom front side slant the box at an angle give them socks filled a bit with rice and have fun!
download an mp3 of "The Hokey Pokey" the adults can help the younger ones and the older children can join in. well theres about 15 min there. lol "Popcorn" is a fun dance for kids to do too.
Don't they do a lot of dances on the Wiggles? Just burn a CD and get the kids in a circle.
Ever hear of an "Air Band?" If there are 4 (or5?) older people who are willing to perform (parents, older siblings/neighbors, aunts and uncles, etc), Have each one wear a different color shirt, cut out a guitar shape from a cardboard box for one of you, color it red, then YOU can be the Wiggles. Just play a video or cd nice and loud while you mouth the words and lead the moves. Once they see you do it, the kids may want to wear a bright shirt and be their favorite Wiggle character. They can be in the band. Public libraries usually have Wiggles DVD's and CDs for FREE.
