Toddler Birthday Party Ideas

Toddler Birthday Party Ideas: part of the Turning 2 Toddler Birthday Celebration

Bubbles is turning two this month and I can’t believe it.  It honestly seems like the other day that she fit in the nook of my arm; now when I pick her up and we’re eye-to-eye, her toes dangle against my knees.  Every day she surprises us with a new phrase. activity, item, or look.  This month in the Turning 2 Toddler Birthday Celebration I’ll be sharing a lot of great things that she loves that I think other toddlers will enjoy.

Before the month gets too far away from me I’m trying to decide on a birthday theme for her party.  Pocoyo is favorite character but the merchandise for it is almost non-existent and I haven’t been able to find any party supplies.  So we’re looking at other options.  She takes after her Mama and is a little Disney girl which makes something Disney a top choice.  She loves Minnie Mouse, the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show, Tinker Bell, and the princesses (she can name them all, with Rapunzel and Ariel being two of her favorites).  Here are some of the cute party ideas for a Minnie Mouse party I’ve found so far.

Toddler Birthday Party Ideas - Minnie Mouse Cake

Minnie Mouse 2nd Birthday Cake – Beautiful, but maybe outside my skill level. We’ll have to see!

Toddler Birthday Party Ideas - Minnie Mouse Oreo Cookies

Love these Minnie Mouse Oreo cookie pops. If I choose a Minnie theme, I’m definitely going to have to make some of these.

Toddler Birthday Ideas - Minnie/Mickey Mouse Bottled Water

These should be pretty easy to make. Change the paper to pink with polka dots for the Minnie theme.

Toddler Birthday Party Ideas - Minnie- and Mickey Mouse-shaped Sandwich Toppings Bar

Okay, in love with this idea. Minnie-shaped sandwich toppings are so cute! And DIY sandwiches are great for guests.

Toddler Birthday Party Ideas - Minnie Mouse Balloon Wreath

Leave out the yellow and swap the red for pink and this can be a Minnie Mouse wreath! Going to need to stretch that project out over a few days…

She also loves Clifford the Big Red Dog.  She’s had a small plush that’s been her “carseat buddy” for over a year now.  She also has a new, slightly larger one, that she was recently given that occasionally sleeps with her.  And of course we have to watch Clifford after World Word on PBS.  There are far fewer party ideas out there for Clifford; many of them I had to search out and pin myself.  But here is what I’ve found so far.

The Birthday Banners here are really cute, and “Big Red” soda could be used, too!

  1. And now I have the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme song stuck in my head :)
    My son would love both of those themes! For his first birthday we did Thomas The Tank, for his second birthday we did Elmo, and for his third birthday (next week!) we are doing Curious George.

  2. Wow, I love those Oreo pops! My son celebrated his 2nd birthday in September and we did a Sesame Street party. I can send you the link if you’d like to see what we did!

  3. How adorable! I love all the amazing ideas on pinterest. I’m not so creative myself but once I get that inspiration…I especially love the idea of a Minnie or Mickey party as the silhouette is so simple and recognizable.

  7. I WANTED to do a Minnie Mouse Party for my daughter last year, when she turned 2, but she insisted on Mickey instead. Here’s a post I did about her party: http://soeasybeinggreen-blog.com/2012/05/sophias-mickey-mouse-party/

    • Thanks for sharing, Lindsey! I actually had planned to do Mickey/Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, myself, but a cousin of mine that has a little one a couple weeks older than Bubbles chose Mickey, and I didn’t want her to feel like I was copying :)
