    Hey there. I haven't made any decisions yet. I'm actually thinking because we are expanding our living space of holding a party at our house because we have a roof to our village house that we can use--that is if the weather isn't too cold. My son's birthday falls at the end of November. Last year it was a bit chilly but also sunny and pleasant--the wind was the biggest problem. I think I've recruited a friend to help me make a pretty cake but now I have to think of activities.

    Does anyone have any other ideas for activities to do at home for a 2-year-old, active boy's birthday party?

    I've called LCSD and ask re: renting sports hall or activity rooms but unfortunately they do not allow eating inside, so that's no good for a party then. I even asked if they issue permits to hold a children's party in a park/playground and they dont allow this either. I actually got a friend who has done this for her child's bday and they were asked not to set up the playground for a party (they were just putting up a simple banner and setting up food) as it's for public use.

    Im a D-I-Y type of mom and I want to celebrate my child's bday on a budget. I am hoping to find a bare place that I could rent so we'll save money by bringing our own food and set up the place the way we want to.

    if it is a public facility, then they have no right to ask you to remove a "happy birthday" banner...

    for my son's first birthday, we went to the park in Discovery Bay and had a great time. there were probably 40 adults and plenty of kids. we brought down a picnic table and a few chairs, we even hung up a pinata!

    I just saw the episode of Jon and Kate (your fave show) where they had a `carnival` for the sextuplits` 3rd birthday. They had some game stands, like `bean bag throw` and such, and then gave prizes to the winner.
    And whatever happened to pin the tale on the donkey - do people still do that? You just might not want to set it too close to the edge of the roof. That would be a real bummer.:swoman

    pinata
    musical chairs (we did this at my staff christmas party. first the kids, then the parents. it was HILARIOUS!)
    cup cake decorating
    dance & freeze

    Ha ha ha, SZJ! My "fave show"...yeah (sarcasm added).

    I'm concerned that pin the tail on anything takes too much focus for the 2-year-olds I know to accomplish. I think I'm just going to fill a room up with balloons and stick the kids in there. :0)

    And about my roof...there is no way that any kid would fall off our roof--it has walls about 5-foot high around all sides.

    depending on the time of year, you could also get a small paddling pool and have a "swimming" party.
