We like to pre pack the party food into packets or boxes decorated with the party theme. We then hide the boxes and set up some simple clues or trace footprints and lay them out on the lawn for the toddler to find.
Make this simple by placing some cushions on the floor and playing some music. When the music stops, they must each find a cushion to plop onto.
Play some music, and when it stops the children must move around the room as an animal (all the children are the same animal). You will have to show them which animal each time - younger toddlers won't automatically know how a dog etc behaves. The youngsters then copy your animal impression.
Wrap a small gift in some pretty party paper. Then add layers of newspaper but place a sweet between each layer. This way each child gets something. Get the toddlers to sit in a large circle (its often a good idea to have moms sit behind their toddlers to help pass the parcel on and toddlers like to hang onto it). As the music plays, they need to pass the parcel around. When it stops, the child holding the parcel removes one layer of paper and eats the sweet. Continue until the last layer is done and the prize unwrapped.
Get all the toddlers to hold a section of the sheet and shake it up and down softly. Empty a box of small sweets onto the sheet and let them shake it gently. Any sweets that fall off can be eaten.
Always one of the great party games for your toddler! Buy enough bottles of bubbles for each party goer and let them blow bubbles outside.
Play a game of Simon Says. Keep it simple.
Lay out a balancing beam on two bricks. Make sure then beam is wide enough for the toddlers to balance. They need to walk across the beam without falling into the river. Consider these gross motor activities for toddler party games!
Choose an animal for the toddlers to imitate walk like a penguin, roar like a lion, jump like a kangaroo etc.
These are great non-competitive games that toddlers love. They don't always 'get' the games, but the cooperation and social skills that they encourage more than makes up for this. Visit the page on parachute games for more information.
This traditional childrens game is always a favourite.
For unorganized toddler party games you can consider hiring a ball pond or setting up splash pools and sandpits.
