You can find birthday balloons, birthday banners, birthday invitations, birthday party favors and other paraphernalia that relates to all of these themes and more.

Whether you choose a first birthday party theme in Care Bears or Baby Einstein, you may be concerned about fun activities for all the parents who attend. If you are looking for activities for adults at your child's first birthday party, here are some ideas:

1. A game called "Our Baby Can..." Divide the adults into two groups - the "can" and the "can't" groups. When you call out a task such as "use the potty" or "eat with a spoon," your guests move to the side of the room they think is the correct answer based on whether they believe your baby can or can't do that task.

2. Time capsule: before the party, decorate a coffee can, oatmeal or tennis ball container. Provide pen and paper. Encourage your adult friends and family members to write a special note to your baby to be read by them at a later date.

3. Fill a jar with Cheerios. Make sure you count how many Cheerios are in the jar. Your guests will each write down their name and best guess as to how many Cheerios are in the jar. The person who is closest wins a prize.
