Even if it rains, let the kids play on the bouncy and get wet. They are gonna love this. Just make sure, you call up the mommies and seek their permission before letting them get wet.

I am doing a train theme for Evan as well. Because of the umpredictable and uncomfortable weather it will be indoors. The few children who may attend will have fun playing with his toys and train table as well has his geo-trax sets. While in Toys R Us in the trains sections I saw a conductors outfit that fits ages 3-7 this week and grabbed it as a halloween costume..all the ones for boys are furry and HOT! As I thought more..with a few safety pins, he could wear this (overall top/hat/whistle/attached pocket watch/and tickets..lol) for his {small} party..we are spending one day at Magic Kingdom as tradition for birthdays..we did a weekend last year and a huge cupcake theme last year but money is tight now. A bounce house was offered by a friend who owns a party company but most of the kids are older and I know he could get trampled! For a 2 year old it needs to be simple or he will be overwhelmed..give your house a good cleaning, play train videos, break out the toys and keep it short. I am orderind from birthday express a sign that says "All aboard...choo-choo! Evan is now two!" If you are set on the bounce house....just pray and make room in your house as a back-up. PS Don't stress over the details..the people you invite who love you and your child won't care and those who are bothered don't matter. Happy Birthday to your little baby! God bless your family!

We had her party this past Saturday. Outside with slip-n-slide, water balloons, water guns, pinata, and cake all in a minnie mouse theme (her favorite). She had a blast!

We went all out for out daughter's 1st birthday with a bunch of people and decorations, but this year were just doing a small get together with immediate family. At this age the party is really for the parents so if the weather gets bad maybe you could just reschedule to another day. The babies dont know the difference :)

For my daughter's first we did dress up fairy princess and for the second we will do dress up "fancy little lady tea/garden party" I know this is of no help to you. lol, but maybe mommies of daughters....I like to do the dress up because all of out friends had girls and it involves EVERYONE age1-well I still like dressing up. LOL so after the dress up part we all strip down to our swim suits and swim in the kiddie pools and run through the sprinklers. Even the dads get down on that!

for a rained out train party try going to your local grocery store and get a few boxes that are big enough either for the kids to wear with suspenders or sit inside and have the kids help decorate their car of the train and then make a masking tape (or chalk if you are ouside) track on the floor to travel around. let the kids change positions, pick eachother up at the station, or drop toys off at desintations. i know my son loves to play with boxes. you could try adapting traditional games like "pin the smoke stack on thomas". i don't know if you had cake ideas but you could make square cupcakes and decorate them like a train, then each kid can have their very own train car cake.
good luck with your planning!

For my son's 4th birthday party, we got together a box of old toys that he doesn't play with anymore. Then the kids played a bean bag game where they had to get the bean bag in the bucket. Once they had done that they got to choose a toy. The kids loved it and we will be doing the same at my daughter's 2 year party.

I know that I want to do a pool party for my son, he's just starting to learn how to swim, but with the florida weather not sure if that will work or not. But as I'll be about 34wks preggo don't want to do anything big.

If it rains just do train things in the house, I know my son is obsessed with Chuggington and Thomas videos, maybe entertain the kids by playing some videos and playing along with it. You could also check out different websites for children's tv shows, a lot of times they will have printable games and place mats, and invites on there. Good luck!

I am trying to figure out what to do for my daughter's party, too! It poured on her birthday last year and while I would love to have an outdoor party, I am afraid to have it rained out! I need a fun party for kids ages 2-8 to include her cousins and close family friends. Any ideas, please send me a message. Thanks!
