Month 24

Congratulations! Your toddler is two years old this month. He has come a long way since this time last year when he was practically still a baby. Now he can make a simple point understood, can stack blocks in order of size and knows that a car is something you travel in to get to Granny’s. He understands some concepts like hot and cold or high and low and his memory has improved so much that he can remember things that happened in detail (like that you promised him sweets two days ago!). He can also be affectionate and shows a remarkable sense of humour as well as the odd temper tantrum along the way.

Here are Gurgle’s top tips on creating the perfect second birthday party for your toddler:

  • Consider buying paper plates, cups and table clothes so at the end of the party you can throw everything away and it creates minimal fuss and mess for you when you’re frazzled at the end of the day.
  • Don’t go overboard on food. Instead choose nutritious food that is easy to prepare such as carrot sticks, simple sandwiches and plain crisps that all kids like. Dips and bread are great too.
  • Making your own cake may be terrifying, but if you stick to a simple recipe and design at least you will know exactly what went into the cake and don’t have to worry about nuts or too much sugar.

Party bags

The internet is a great source of pre-bagged party bags and most online stores will have themes and age-range guidance when it comes to choosing. Otherwise, buy a range of small, inexpensive treats at your local pound store, such as stickers and bubbles. Bear in mind the age range of your guests (not too many sweets if they are very small) and that they are likely to have younger brothers or sisters who will go through their party bags once home.
