You can make cute invitations by cutting brown cardstock into the shape of a dog’s head and, out of the same color, little ears that are attached with glue or brads. Add some eyes, a big triangle-shaped nose, and a goofy smile and you have an adorable puppy invitation. Or, if not feeling crafty, buy some charming pre-made ones. In fact, you can purchase matching party supplies, too.
Have the squirming toddlers don their cone hats before starting fun games like:
- Puppy Bone Hunt: hide dog bones (made from construction paper) and let the kids find them
- Ruff, Ruff, Meow: just like Duck, Duck, Goose!
- Hide & Seek: but they are all little puppies hiding before their bath
- Fetch: throw the ball, sit back, and let your little toddler bring it back to you…. Ok, this one is just a lazy sort of game for the parents, but it is still entertaining!
Feed the party goers little dog treats (ie: finger foods) like crackers, cheese cubes, puppy-shaped sandwiches, and cut up fruit and veggies. It will be a lip-smacking meal.
Your new “one year old” and friends will have a doggone good time at their Puppy First Birthday Party. You can find all of these great party supplies on our Puppies First Birthday Party Supplies page.
