Decorations and Activities for Your Child’s Party


With a little imagination, time, and a lot of love, coming up with decorations and activities for your baby’s birthday party is child’s play.

With a little imagination, time, and a lot of love, coming up with decorations and activities for your child’s birthday party is child’s play. Read on for a few helpful tips, ideas and games to play with the whole family. You’ll be able to create an unforgettable occasion for your little one. Here are some kids’ party decorations and activities you can try.

Let the party begin!

Decorations are very important to create the perfect party atmosphere. If you opt for a special theme (see below), adapt the decorations accordingly. If you have not chosen a particular theme, hang up balloons, paper chains and other fun decorations. Attach balloons and photos to the door of your home. Below are a few ideas for themes. And why not hand out fancy dress accessories to your adult guests? For your child to have fun, the entire family needs to join in!

  • Knights
  • Pirates
  • Animals
  • Clowns
  • Cartoon characters

In addition to the decorations suggested, party blowers are also a good idea. Little ones love noise.

Games for laughs
At 1 year old, your child is still not big enough to take part in games. He can, however, watch the whole family having fun and laugh along with the other guests. Here are a few simple game ideas to persuade your guests to join in:

Musical chairs
Arrange the chairs in a circle (one less than the number of players) and start the music. The players must dance around the chairs until you stop the music without warning. The players must then each find a chair to sit on as quickly as possible. The player left without a seat is out. Start the music again and repeat the steps until there is only one chair remaining. The winner is the one sitting down.

Pin the nose on the clown
Draw a clown on a plain sheet of paper but leave out the nose. Instead, make a red nose out of cardboard. Then, hang the clown drawing on the wall with a pin. Blindfold one of the players, who must then try to pin the nose in the correct spot on the drawing. The winner is the player who pins the nose closest to the correct position.

These kids’ party decorations and activities will definitely make your child’s birthday party a hit, so give them a go!
