2nd birthday party ideas

2nd birthday party ideasYour little one is turning 2, you are arranging a birthday party and so I hope you will find a lot of useful 2nd birthday party ideas here on my website.

These years in the child's life are amazing and wonderful to follow. In the last year the child has gone from taking her or his first step to walking safely beside you, and your child even wants to go exploring.

This also means that a 2nd birthday party can be quite different from a 1st birthday party. The birthday child will enjoy the attention (though not too much of it, attention can become rather tiresome in large doses), he or she can now play with other children, or at least stand watching each other playing, and the child can even take part in decorating for the birthday party.

Ideas for birthday presents for 2nd birthday party:

If you are the parent of the birthday child, most likely you know what kind of present the child would like. Still, you might get some new ideas looking at these pictures. And if you, like most parents, get the question again and again: "What does he/she want as a birthday present ?" then you can give them a link to this page.

That the birthday child is turning two means that all gifts that helps the little one explore the world indoor and outdoor will be great. Balance bikes, swings, toy cars and little motor bikes you can move with your legs, balls.

But also books, you can read for the toddler, with lots of pictures and maybe even books that make sounds!

At least, but not last, everything they can use to stable and build and make move and then topple, and then they can stable and build and make move and so on........

I'll show you some pictures of presents that would be great for a 2 year old child: 

A Bicycle is the perfect birthday gift for kids. You
can start with a balance-bike which is a really great
way tor your child to improve their sense of balance,
and they will love to be able to get around fast.

A bicycle not only helps your child to work on his or her
balance, but will help them to develop their muscles from an
early age, fight off obesity, and get them out of the house.
Everything connected to water will be a great 2nd birthday present, as well as everything you can build and stable and topple and build and change.....

Books, to help the little one relax when she or he is tired after climbing and running around.

Books is really one of the great ideas for birthday presents, almost at any age, but now turning 2 the little one will love to hear bed time stories.

It should still be books with pictures and only a little text, and the child actually needs the grown up to read lots of stories to learn all the words he or she shall use in the years to come.

It can be books where there is a picture of all the everyday thing a girl or boy will do, like getting up, brushing teeth and so on.
It can also be books with simple songs, maybe some of the songs the child also learns in kindergarten, and it can be books where the child can press buttons and it makes a noise.

You can find specific educational toys for toddler, but actually all the toys you could think of as a birthday present will be educational, be sure that the toddler herself will take care of that!

You can start having themed birthday parties now. Most toddlers will be happy to have any kind of birthday theme, as well as a birthday without a theme, but for the fun of you and the guests there are a lot of themes you can choose.

To go with the different themes of course you will have to send out birthday invitations that fits the theme.

2nd Birthday Invitation Wording:


"Our little monster is turning 2

"Someone special is turning two
and he wants to party with you"

"Someone sweet is turning two
We're having a party, and we need you!"

"Our little girl is turning two!

"A pink cupcake is
waiting for you....

xxxxxxxxxx turning TWO!"

"Toot the horn! Bang the drum!
It's a party! Can you come?

2ns birthday ideas for cake:

Take a look at the cakes I suggest for the 1st birthday, those would also be the ones I would suggest for the 2nd birthday.

2nd birthday party themes

Turning 2 the birthday child will be old enough to enjoy a birthday theme, like a pirate theme, a dinosaur theme or a princess theme.

Other than that, I can imagine a superhero theme would be great, or a theme where they could dress up as knights? Animal costumes are always cute and funny, and if you need a theme for that, maybe a jungle theme, or a zoo theme.

For other theme ideas, take a look at the page, picture link below, for kids' birthday party ideas.
