Top 5 Creative DIY Ideas For Birthday Parties In 2023

Updated: Apr 10

If your toddler’s birthday is right around the corner, you’re likely feeling happy and eager for the event to place. But something like a toddler's birthday can make you rip your hair out. There’s just so much to do, so much to take care of, and you’re running low on ideas.

You might have hired professionals to take care of the event, but a little DIY can help start the celebrations on the right foot. Take a look at the DIY ideas for birthday parties our toddler party experts have picked for you, and set up an event that’s truly unique and memorable.

Confetti Wall

Your tot’s birthday is something very special to you and to them. These are moments that’ll never come again, and you need to capture them. A confetti wall is one of the best fun ideas for birthday parties.

You can set it up in a couple of hours, and afterward, you and your guests will have a cool backdrop for an Insta photoshoot. We've tried this decor before. Trust us, it works wonders. It’s more awesome than it seems and quite easy to make.

Zig Zag Streamers

Zig Zag Streamers are one of the coolest ideas for birthday parties. They’re so easy to make, and you cover your entire living room within an hour or two. All you need is some colorful paper and a pair of scissors.

That’s it, you're good to go. The steamers add a wonderful vibe to the party as they hang from your ceiling and make for picture-perfect moments. Be careful, though, if your toddler their reach and start pulling them, you’ll have some cleaning up to do.

Cereal Box Piñata

Let’s face it, a birthday party isn’t a birthday party without a piñata. Using cereal boxes to make piñatas is one of the easiest DIY birthday party ideas. Stroll down your kitchen and see you have some empty boxes of Captain Crunch or CoCo Puffs lying around.

Now half your job is done. The next thing you need to do is fill them up with candy. Then decorate them and hang them from the ceiling. Don’t forget to buy individually wrapped candy for the piñata, you don’t want to have unwrapped treats on your floor.

Party Games

Party games never get old and are just perfect for your toddler’s special day. Think about all the fun they’ll have. Now, as toddler party experts, we know coming up with game ideas for birthday parties is a bit challenging.

But worry not, we’ll help you out. Toddlers love games that involve running around and ones that tickle their curiosity. So, a couple of rounds of Musical Chairs, some Pass The Ball, and little Duck Duck Goose will definitely be loads of fun and entertainment.

Charade Popsicle Sticks

Charade popsicle sticks are the coolest DIY birthday party ideas, and we’re willing to bet you and the kids will love them. You’ll need two or a couple of things to start. So, find a jar, some popsicle sticks, and a Sharpie.

Now all you have to do is write one charade on each popsicle stick. It can be anything like dancing, singing, frog jumping, or whatever else you can think of. Then place sticks in the jar, and let the fun begin.
