There are many reasons you may want to focus on handmade for a birthday celebration for your child. It is way more personalized and tailored to their interests for one thing. Does your toddler love elephants? Then by all means, elephant projects are in order! By doing things yourself you won't be stuck with the handful of "marketed to kids" themes based on whatever movie is out. You can have a unique party that truly celebrates your child.
It also is often cheaper, way more eco-friendly and just plain fun to create a party for a little one...especially if they can help out with the preparations. Here are some ideas to get you started!
