We recently celebrated our little 2 year old's birthday, complete with cupcakes, twinkle lights, and fairies. No one ever needs to convince me to whip up a cute little birthday party, I kind of love it. Fortunately my two girls' birthdays are spaced out in the Summer and Fall, and my little guy made his entrance into the world between Christmas and the new year, so I get to plan a fun little birthday party every few months. This time around we kept it fairly simple; cupcakes, a tiny birthday cake that my daughter helped me decorate during nap time, and pretzels dipped in candy melts. We had a blast! Happy 2nd Birthday, baby girl!
I made a tiny and sweet two-year-old birthday cake decorated with simple frosting designs and sprinkles.
Yummy toddler-friendly fish crackers and gummy bears make a simple birthday party snack with minimal mess.
We even set up a little fairy tent using a PVC pipe and some Organza fabric that I keep around for fun decor. Flower twinkle lights and a homemade cloth flower garland (from another project) add the perfect fairy garden decorative touches!
We made fun fairy coloring pages decorated with dots of craft glue and rhinestones. A perfect fairy craft for a 2 year old! We also used these awesome metallic gel pens instead of markers (a lot less messy!)
These fun fairy jars are easy to make with a cool VOSS plastic water bottle. Just fill it up with colored water, add some glitter and drop in some beads, rhinestones, and gems. Seal the VOSS bottle with a piece of tape. Shake it up and watch the glitter and gems swirl around the bottle!
This cute Build-a-Bouque set from Green Toys was a fun party activity to put out and let the kids play with. Each flower piece fits together to create a DIY flower bouquet that even a toddler can build all by themselves. See our review »
I hope you got some fun ideas for your own kids' birthdays! I reuse my decor over and over and I keep a decent amount of craft supplies around, so putting together a little party like this only cost me about $20. And it was super fun and I feel like it celebrated my 2-year-old baby girl in a way that she could fully enjoy. You can shop for these cute Disney Fairy Dolls on Amazon. Happy party planning!
