Toddler birthday games are great for burning excess energy and encouraging social interactions between children at your child’s birthday party. Your toddler birthday games should not only be easy to play, but safe as well. A good safety rule is to make sure that your prizes or party favors do not fit through a paper towel tube in order to prevent choking hazards.
Toddler Birthday Games
Classic Toddler Birthday Games
Pin the tail on the donkey games are versatile because you can modify the pairings by the theme of your party: frog on the lilly pad, slipper on the ballerina, car on the finish line and so on. Instead of a pin, use tape on the back of each object to be “pinned” to the poster. The child who pins their object closest to the target is the winner.
Playing a “freeze” dance game is sure to remove some of that excess party energy. Play a lively children’s song and have all the children dance. When you stop the music and yell “freeze” everyone must stop dancing and freeze in that position until you say “unfreeze.” Start the music again and repeat.
Other Toddler Birthday Games Ideas
Let the children have a birthday party parade with musical instruments, streamers, ribbons, stuffed animals or whatever relates to the birthday party theme.
Active games like Hokey Pokey, Ring Around the Rosy, or just letting the children dance freestyle really keep children entertained. Blowing bubbles or holding coloring contests with theme inspired coloring pages are also great activities.

If you have a basement, it would be the perfect place to host your child�s birthday. If you don�t have a basement, a few dark sheets darkening a room will also work. Start by hanging glow in the dark stars to the ceiling using fishing line. You can hang rewritable CD�s from the ceiling and you can also attach the glow in the dark stars to the CD�s. You may also want to hang some black helium balloons on the ceiling to add to the effect. Make the planets out of construction paper and hang them from the ceiling as well. For a centerpiece you can use three empty oat meal boxes covered in aluminum foil. Fill them with black and royal blue tissue paper.
On the day of the party, purchase some dry ice from your local ice company. You can put it in a bucket with water and when it �steams� you can tell the kids that it just fell from space and it is a moon rock. A cake will be easy to make since most cake molds are round. You can use chocolate icing to make the cake look like a planet or use vanilla icing to make it look like the moon.
