Gallery Roundup: First Birthday Party Activities

Other than the sweets and treats, the best part of a birthday party is definitely the games. But what if the party guests are too little to play Pin the Tail on the Donkey and Musical Chairs? Just because they’re small doesn’t mean that you can’t plan a little bit of fun for your tiny guest of honor and friends, so today we’re rounding up some of our favorite first birthday party activities that we’ve spotted in the gallery.

Turn up the music, toss in a few inflatable balls, and the little ones will have a blast dancing up a storm.
