my boys are 2 and 1 year old. We just did painting and a small pool for them this year. Their cousin who turned one had a bouncy castle and my boys loved that a lot. We are thinking about just getting a bouncy castle for next year. Good Luck!

My baby just turned two in july and my oldest 7 in augustFor their b-day I try keep it simple and make the cake and table look good for my 2 yr old she had an elmo cake i made a 2 layer round cake and bought the elmo face kit from walmart for 5.00 and made the red icing w/ food coloring and white bettycrocker frosting. the table cloth and little lot bag goddies all came from dollar treeI spent like $30-$40 for her bday at the park. My oldest had her bday at home with my kitchen being decorated( balloons, pink table cloth, bday confetti, cake and picnic lunch) and pulling out her barbies and a couple of dvds.

Also.....the play place at McDonald's does not allow children under 3 in.

Have you thought of a theme birthday? For instance, my son LOVES Thomas the Tank Engine so we're doing a Thomas theme party. Are there any characters she likes? A really big party for a 2 year old can be pretty overwhelming so I wouldn't go all out. At that age they really don't appreciate it anyways. I'd say theme party with a bbq or something.

For my son's 2nd & 3rd bdays we had a BBQ at the house. This way if the weather was bad then we could all go in or just stay outside, his bday is in July though so weather tends to be in our favor :)



Being in Oct. you could take a handful of kids to a pumpkin patch. They always have loads of crap to do there and for a party favor they can all bring home a pumpkin for Halloween :)



We did the park thing for my son's first bday, but he wasn't even walking yet... Until recently I've always felt uncomfortable letting him run around the toys though (@ the big park) and have had to chase him the entire time, being pregnant that may not be a good idea unless you have a small park or have someone else there to chase him for you? Cuz I know I haven't taken my son to many parks this summer due to my pregnancy!



Other then that you could always do McDonalds, or some kids activity place around your house. Letting them know its a bday party has a tendency to cost more? So you could always just go their to play & do cake @ home?

what about a park picnic its not too cold depending on your location in october but you can make little bagged lunches which are cheap and easy and they can run around and play all day!
