O is turning 2 in Feb, we don't want a big party as I think he's still too little and will be overwhelmed rather than have fun. But we do want to do something special. Ideas please

2 year old b'day ideas

We were thinking of a simple BBQ for DS birthday. A couple crafty things for the kids like finger painting and such and goodie bags with aprons etc so they don't mess up their clothes.
Also going to have heaps of balloons rolling around the floor cause they love that!
Not too over the top and they can take their masterpieces home at the end of the party!

Oh should have added we're not going to have a party with other kids, we really don't know that many very well. None of our close friends have kids yet, and we're the first to have kids in our families

What about a small gathering at a park or play centre? Just a few little friends, some simple party food and a cake?
Or you could forget about inviting friends and just have a special day with your son - pancakes in fun shapes for brekkie, a play in the park, fairy bread or something like that for lunch, an afternoon of play at home (some painting or playing in the sandpit, under the sprinkler - whatever he likes to do), his favourite dinner and a bday cake. You could blow up some balloons for him to play with and do something fun with bathtime - add glowsticks and turn the lights off or get some of those coloured bath discs at Woolies. So basically just a day of pure FUN with him!
Hope he has a great day!

A teddy bears picnic at the park? Have friends bring their teddies/favourite toys?

Subscribing, as DD1 is turning 2 in Feb as well and I've been stuck on ideas too... We had 50 people here for her 1st and it was an amazing day (that was just family and friends), but never again!!! LOL... I had just found out I was pregnant too with DD2!

For dd's 2nd birthday I took her to underwater world with her grandparents, 1 Aunty and half her cousins (the rest were living hours away) then when we came home we had pizza and cake. It was a great day, easy and very fun. At that time dd didn't know any kids so there was no point in having a kids party.
Eta if you don't have close by or don't want to include family you could just do a family outing too :-)

We took DD to the zoo for her birthday. We had a party at a play centre on the weekend too.

We're over going completely over the top with around 80guests, a petting zoo and waaaay to much food but next year we are saving the money we woul spend on a party and gifts and taking our DD on a holiday instead. We will still have a Roast dinner and cake with our nearest and dearest though
