Ok, so here goes another thread, this time with a much less controversial topic.
DD turns 3 on Jan 8 (yep, thats 13 days after Christmas and 3 days after DH's birthday). Great planning, huh??
As a child, birthdays were always celebrated with the family, I had 9 cousins and lots of family in general, so birthdays were always a low key but fun family affair. I would like to continue this type of atmosphere for my DD's birthday, but I'm struggling with party games appropriate for 3 year olds. Would you even do games?
Sadly, in my area, birthdays, like so much else, have become uber commercialized, with parties ranging anywhere from $300 to $1000. While we could likely afford a party on the lower end of that scale, I just inherently disagree with making a child's birthday party a commercial product, so to speak. I want it to be about family and friends, not who can write the biggest check for the fanciest party, YKWIM?
so if you have toddler party experience, HELP!!!
