If your child has a birthday coming up, you will want to do all that you can to make it a special and memorable occasion for them. A birthday is always a special occasion as a kid, but what can you do to make it that little bit extra special this year? Read on for a few ideas.
Wake Them Up Singing Happy Birthday
What better way to start their day than singing “happy birthday” to them? This will get them in the mood for an enjoyable day off the bat.
Plan Fun Activities
As their special day, you should have a few activities planned that they have chosen whether this is playing in the garden, going to the park, playing games or having a party (or all of the above!).
If they are at school on their birthday, you could turn up at lunchtime armed with cake and sweets for their entire class to enjoy. This will surely lift their spirits and increase their popularity! Obviously check with the school first. Lucas’ school bakes a cake ready for birthdays ahead and the birthday child always takes bags of sweets in to share with the class.
A Memorable Birthday Card
You will want to buy a birthday card that will be treasured for years to come so you should find one that is nice, funny or thoughtful and write a heartfelt message inside. Be sure to collect these over the years so that they can look back through them when they are older.
Let Them Decorate Their Cake
No birthday is complete without a tasty cake, but you could make it extra special this year by allowing them to decorate their own cake which will give them a chance to be creative.
Gift Treasure Hunt
Presents are, obviously, a central component of any child’s birthday. To make this year a little bit more memorable, you could design a gift treasure hunt to make it more exciting and fun.
Decorate With Pictures
A thoughtful idea is to decorate your home with photographs of your child, family and friends over the years. This will make the day much more memorable and can also be a great conversation starter if you are inviting friends and family over.
Fill the Room With Balloons
Balloons are always a cheap, easy and effective way to decorate and create a joyous atmosphere in the home. Lucas loves getting balloons for every occasion!
Give Them Hugs & Kisses
You should also be sure to give them plenty of hugs and kisses throughout the day so that they feel the love. There will come a time where they will find this embarrassing, so make the most out of it while you can!
Give Them a Birthday Crown
A birthday crown or tiara that they can wear all day long will help them to feel important and special, plus it can also make the day more fun and enjoyable – remember to take lots of photos!
These are just some ways that you can make this birthday that little bit extra special for your child this year.
