Birthday Traditions To Make Your Child Smile
Posted By Jessica Fisher On June 9, 2010 @ 1:31 am In Birthdays | 5 Comments
Our family is currently in the midst of Birthday Season. We have four birthdays take place in about three weeks’ time. It gets a little crazy around here. And my birthday cake mojo definitely gets a workout. But, it’s good times, nonetheless.
A Fun Cake  – You can totally do this! Throw some candy and toys on the cake to match your kid’s theme and you’re good to go. Consider: a Bob the Builder birthday cake , a Pokeball cake , a cake in the shape of a Lego Bionicle Thornax . How ’bout The Death Star ? If I can do it, so can you! And don’t forget the Number Candles .
A Favorite Menu for Each Meal of the Day  – The birthday kid gets to choose the day’s meals. We even let them choose one restaurant meal, budget permitting.
Balloons at Breakfast – A can of helium is usually around $20 and makes for lots of birthday balloons. One year I bought one, and it lasted for all the birthdays. It made for a very fun thing to wake up to. I tied them to the kitchen chairs that morning before everyone awoke.
A Family Field Trip  – Sometimes instead of parties, we do special day trips as a family. We’ve done the Science Museum, the Swimming Pool, the park, and even Legoland. Price can range from extravagant to practically free.
