How to Host Play Dates for your Toddlers

How to Host Play Dates for your Toddlers

This event is added when you own The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff Pack, otherwise it won’t show up as an event.

Host a big party for tiny tots! Invite all the toddlers your little one knows for fun, play, and general merriment. While the tykes run to and fro, grill up some food and exchange parenting tips with fellow caregivers.

Preparation before hosting the play date

First you need to befriend a few toddlers in the neighborhood. It can be hard to find any because they are not present when you just created the game. You’ll need to add more toddlers in the neighborhood before you can find them.

What objects do you need?

  • Not an object but it is required to have a toddler in the family or else you can’t host a play date.
  • A Grill so you don’t have to walk back in the house to prepare food.
  • A Toddler Slide.
  • A Stereo so Sims can listen to music.
  • A Bookcase with toddler books.

How to host a Play Date and invite other toddlers

Now it’s time to host the play date. Go to your phone and click on Plan a Social Event and select Toddler Play Date. You’ll need at least 3 participants for this event; a host caregiver, host toddler and a guest toddler. You can select up to 7 Sims for each role. One of your family members needs to befriend toddlers first in the neighborhood before they can be invited to a play date. For each toddler you invited there will also be a caregiver that comes along with them. Make sure you have enough room for all the guests.

Select a venue or lot to host the event. This can be at home or at the park. Now you have 6 hours to complete the goals.
