One of the most popular party ideas for toddlers,
Dora The Explorer
is a great theme around which to center a fun and easy celebration.
Homemade invitations and do it yourself decorations are a snap thanks to Dora's creators, Nick Jr., who feature loads of fun printables at their official Web site (see right).
For your little hungry guests, Dora theme party food is also easy to prepare with a few
ingredients to make up a fun fiesta of tacos, mini quesadillas, chips and mild salsa or cheese dip.
Dora party games & activities
familiar with Dora and her friends, then you know that a favorite activity might include a scavenger hunt to bring out young guests' sense of discovery. Keep it
simple by hiding Dora toys or stickers around the play area for young explorers to find, or browse other ideas for 2 or 3-year-old party ideas for riddles and games you can easily adapt.
Quick Fiesta Cake Idea:
Prepare a sheet cake, and frost with your favorite icing. Decorate with M&M maracas!
how about ... a Dora piñata? Stickers or printables come in handy for decorating a shopping bag that, filled with snacks and candy, can be stapled shut and hung as your party activity centerpiece.
Send your guests home happy with goodie bags filled with Dora The Explorer stationary or coloring pages (again, easily downloadable at Nick, Jr.), along with toy binoculars,
stickers and candy.
