To make a treasure hunt game, buy small toys and hide them around the party area. Show the children items similar to the hidden ones, and have them compete to find the most toys. The winner gets to help hide the toys so everyone can play again. At the end of the party, divide the trinkets among the children, and use them as party favors.

To start a parade ask the children to line up behind the birthday child, and give them streamers to dance with or toy instruments to play. Have them walk around singing and playing a birthday song. For a quieter activity, tape a large piece of paper or poster board to a fence to table. Let the children color the entire thing as a group.
