Simple Toddler Party Games
Toddler party games are easy to include, you don't need too many and the golden rule is the simpler the better.
I remember my sons 1st birthday party, there were more adults than children. I kept everything simple, this was my first time at organizing birthday party games for toddlers after all.
There were only 5 kids, I think it's a good idea to keep the guest list small, otherwise the children can get overwhelmed.
Most parents will hang around when the party is for toddlers. So if you're having a 1st or 2nd year old birthday party, you will need to offer some grown up food and drinks for the parents. Remember keep it simple, it's a birthday party for toddlers not grown ups. You will find the extra hands a great help though, especially when you're running the birthday party games for toddlers during the day.
Babies and toddlers get tired easily, so I held the party in the morning for about 1 and a half hours. This avoided the afternoon naps and also made catering for the grown ups easier. It was more like a morning tea than lunch.
Some of my friends had small babies, so I prepared my bedroom so that they had a quiet space to feed, and also a space for the inevitable nappy changing.
The decorations were simply balloons and streamers. I tried the party hats but they didn't stay on the kids heads for too long.
It goes without saying that party games for toddlers need to be simple. I pulled some ideas that I had seen done at play group and they worked a treat. I've made a few suggestions below.

You only need 2-3 party games for toddlers and they need to be simple, short and interactive. There is no need to fill the whole party with games, also allow some time for some free play. Simply lay out some popular baby/toddler toys such as building blocks, shape sorter, plastic tea sets and pull along toys. If you have an outdoor area, set out the outdoor toys in the same way and call on those extra hands to help supervise. Don't forget the hats and sunscreen!

Party bags are probably not necessary for the toddler age group. For my sons 1st birthday party I sent everyone home with a piece of birthday cake. The kids had eaten enough cake as it was and I didn't want to get lumbered with a birthday cake in my fridge for the rest of the week...too tempting!
If you wanted to do party bags, look at a little soft or plastic toy, non toxic thick crayons. Make sure that there is nothing with small parts in it. The parents will no doubt thank you for not putting sticky sweets inside.
