Parents get quite create when it comes to toddler birthday party ideas and themes. Similarly, they love to come up with new and innovative toddler party games that are sure to keep the little guests as well as the guest of honor entertained and squealing with delight. Some party themes lend themselves to the inclusion of special toddler party dresses, yet these can quite frequently run up quite an expense that many a host or guest is not always prepared to meet. Fortunately, there are a large number of alternatives when it comes to the dress up portion of the party, and with a bit of preparation and a few easy to follow tips, all the little guests will be able to dress up in style for next to nothing!
Let's say that your toddler birthday party ideas run along the lines of a day on the farm. One of your favorite age appropriate toddler party games includes the "pin the tail on the donkey" game and you have already taken receipt of the bales of hay you need for your pint sized ho-down. All that is left to consider are the toddler party dresses that will complete the mood. Yet, how can you create a barnyard full of little animals without incurring a huge expense? If your child or any of her or his guests own a white hooded jacket and maybe even matching white pants, you can use some double-sided sticky tape to attach tufts of cotton balls to the outfit. With two easily removable sewing stitches attach felt ears to the hood, and then finish off the costume with some white socks over the hands, and some black socks on the feet. You now have your perfect little lamb! Don't have a white outfit? If you have a pink or even brown one, you are just a few easy steps away from that perfect bunny getup! Use again the trusty double-sided tape and attach a big wad of puffy cotton to the back of the pants. Some felt floppy ears will complete the ensemble. With a bit of makeup you may draw some whiskers on the child's face, and you now have an adorable little bunny to liven up the party. Your little boy does not want to be a bunny or lamb? No problem! Perhaps he will be more interested in roaming around as a little puppy dog! If you have a grey, brown, black, white, or even ochre jacket, preferably with a hood, you are well on your way. Find a pair of matching pants to go with the jacket, and use the double-sided tape to attach some spots made of felt. A safety pin can hold a long piece of rope that will become the tail. Ears can be made of felt and hang down from the hood of the jacket. With all these little animals cavorting around, you can see how easily toddler party dresses may be created for very little money. Other ideas for toddler party dresses for this occasion may be a cat, cow, or duck.
Of course if your party revolves around another theme, other costumes may be just as easily fabricated. Thus, whether you will be entertaining a group of miniature fire fighters, constructions workers, nurses, tea party participants or even safari enthusiasts, all you really need is your toddler, party dresses, and the goal to have as much fun as possible! Go ahead and enjoy yourself!
