    Default Ideas for a 2 year old's birthday party in mid Dec..

    My son will be 2 mid dec.. I have no idea what to do! I'm a bit over the parties in the park thing and refuse to do it at home cos we are renovating.. so it's not ideal. any ideas? I just know it will be HOT!

    play centre?
    trampoline place?
    day out at a farm/zoo?

    What are the ages of other kids that will be coming?

    DS is 2 in Nov and he would love both of these. He will be stuck with a playground party though!

    DD will be 2 in January and I'm wondering the same thing. Last year her 1st birthday was a BBQ and it was so hot, I couldn't enjoy it because I was overwhelmed with hot and sweaty people and the cake started melting.

    I think I'll try to do something indoors this year so we can be in aircon, maybe a play centre or something small at home. I was always thinking of maybe a water play party, so have a slippery slide and maybe a sprinkler set up for the kids/ adults to play in. I'm not sure if that's a good idea for such young kids though

    2 is a tricky age as I think it's still a bit young for a play centre party - I had DS first 3 parties at home or at the park and his 4th the I'm doing in a play centre next week so I say still do a home party but can you use someone else's house and make a cool theme , have a face painter , water slide or animal farm come over ?

    Our local pool has a BBQ area and playground - last week when I took my DS swimming, I noticed that a family had set up a birthday party there. It looks like all of the parents brought their kids for an afternoon/evening swim and then once they were out and changed, they headed outside for a BBQ and play. Could that be an option?

    We've had quite a few parties at our local pool - it's got a great shaded kids pool and a BBQ area with lots of tables and benches. We've also been to some at water playgrounds which have been good fun.
