Here are some ideas to help you create unforgettable invitations, using a bubble theme for your toddler's birthday party.
- Bubble art: Experiment with making different bubble solutions. After printing out the invitation, have your toddler blow various colored bubbles right onto the paper. As they land and pop, your invites will metamorphose into beautiful works of bubble art.
- Bubbly invitation: After you print out the invitations, trace several small round circles onto the paper and cut them out. Flip the invitation over and place a same-size piece of plastic wrap on top. Anchor it to the paper by using glue in all corners. Tape or glue a sheet of pale pink paper on top of the plastic wrap. When you flip back to the front, beautiful, pink bubbles will adorn your invitation.
Activities and Games
Toddlers love activities and games, but make sure you don't wear them out. Just the concept of a birthday party -- and the anticipation -- can be exhausting to your toddler. Here are some easy and quick ideas to help you entertain the crowd:
- Bubbles, bubbles, everywhere: Go outside and give each parent different bubble wands and solution. Count to three and begin the chorus of bubbles. Toddlers below will have a wonderful time scrambling after the bubbles.
- The bubble magician: It's Dad's turn to impress the group. The key is to use a straw to blow bubbles, making certain that the straw is thoroughly wet before attempting the trick. Using a small, plastic butter lid filled to the rim with solution, blow up a big bubble. Without removing the straw, slowly poke it through the bubble and out. The liquid on the straw becomes a part of the liquid surface of the bubble and, with practice, it will not pop!
