Not creative - need cute ideas. Boy's 2nd Bday

Thinking about cars and trucks theme or trains. He loves them both.

 Would welcome any decoration, treat, game, or give away idea.



Re: Not creative - need cute ideas. Boy's 2nd Bday

  • I did trains a couple of years ago.  I got a Wilton puzzle cake that makes a train, but if you want to make your own there are a few videos on Betty Crocker too.  For decor I cleaned up his toy trains- the wooden Melissa and Doug and another primary color one- and put them out as centerpieces with some curled ribboon.  I found a felt Happy Birthday banner and hung that along with some helium ballooons.

    For favors I tend to do some sort of non-edible with edible.  It also sort of depends on who you are giving too.  I only give to the kids so some sort of stickers, a pencil or horn, and some candies.  My daughter's b-day is Sunday.  Her bags have some glow sticks, a blow horn, a little popper thing, and some candies.  Check the dollar store, Big Lots and look for things you can break apart.  Now is a good time too because there are things out for Easter baskets.

  • I don't have a creative bone in my body, but I can copy with the best of them.  Here's trains; change the query to get cars.
  • the 1-yo, soon to be 2, in our family loves Toy Story and Cars.  Anything Buzz or Woody or Mater would work for him!  search for toy story party, or whatever, on pinterest.
