My daughter is turning 1 in a month and we are throwing her a party but I don't know what to do other than food and opening presents. Most of the guest are going to be adults and their kids. The kids that are coming are between the ages of 5 months and 3 years. We are having it at a park but there aren't enough baby swings for everyone. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do for activies for the kids? Any advice is much appreciated.

Bubbles, and balls (soocer baseball), just let them run around and play.  They have been couped all winter i presume (i am in pa and i tis cold so we have been inside alot), they will be glad for the chance to let loose and run free.  We took our son to a park last wknd and it was busy so we had to share time on things, he was just happy being around other kids and stretching his legs...

 

And Happy 1st to your L O

My son turned a 1 last December and we had a party at the park. I really didn't do anything other then food and presents because all the kids were so young it really didn't matter what they did.  Only thing was after cake and ice cream we let them go run around and play and do there own thing.  Believe me they well have a great time just being out side playing.

If your having it at a park you may not need to worry about activities. Maybe bring some sidewalk chalk and bubbles. That would be all I would do. My son is a October child and we always do a hay ride.

We live in Ga so it has already been in the 80's and it is just spring. We had thought about bubbles. We are taking her to the park, the one that we are having the party at, Saturday so we will see what she does then and figure out if we will need other activitites or not. Thank you everyone for your suggestions.

I agree with the other posts.  Just being outside and able to run will be fun for the kids.  Bubbles, balls, chalk, and kites sound great!  If it's going to be really warm and other parents don't mind, you could even do water balloons.  We didn't do any structured activities at my daughter's 1st birthday.  Everyone just enjoyed visiting and eating.  ;)  Have fun!
