So for today, we are going to check out a few birthday party ideas that you can take into consideration for your kid’s birthday.
1.) Shape Party – If the birthday celebrant is just a toddler and he or she still has a few but really close friends (kids of your friends and family probably), you won’t have to worry about catering to a large crowd. Parties for toddlers can be limited to five to ten kids and you don’t need to worry about having a yard.

You can do this by cutting the food into triangles, squares, circles, etc. Entertainment is easy as you just need to play games with different shapes.
