FAVORITE indoor activities FOR toddler birthday party
Getting stuck indoors on a rainy day or for a kid’s birthday party is tough on 1 and 2 year olds, so let us help you turn your living room and household items into indoor activities using a little imagination.
Toddlers first experience birthday party activities with party-goers watching them smash the 1st birthday cake. Smashing the cake is lots of fun for the birthday child but you need fun indoor birthday party games for the younger children attending with short attention spans.
