Is your child’s birthday coming up? If so, you may want to plan a big party to make the day special. However, birthday parties don’t always have to be over-the-top to make them unique.
Planning a perfect party straight from Pinterest is very outdated and requires a lot of effort. If you want to make your child’s birthday memorable and meaningful, you should make genuine efforts in making your kid feel special.
In doing so, consider dropping the idea of going overboard and planning one or two simple rituals that you can do every year. Rather, we’ve discussed useful tips that can be helpful when planning your child’s birthday.
Take a look.
Give Your Child a Balloon Wake-Up Call
When your child wakes up on the day of his birthday, you can have him stand on the bed and shower him with a basket full of rolled ribbons and balloons.
You can also scatter balloons on the floor in your child’s room after he/she falls asleep the night before his birthday. Imagine the happiness your child will experience when he wakes up to a sea of colours on his birthday!
Make a Paper Crown
The party hats you buy at the store are usually scratchy and tight. Plus, the elastic chin straps can cause an accident.
Instead, you can consider making paper crowns at home. All you need to make decorative paper crowns are scissors, paper, and some tape. You can go with a royal theme and let your child choose a title they would like to be addressed for the day.
Dress in Your Kid’s Favourite Colour
Kids get very excited when they see their favourite colour. Your child will smile at the sight of you bringing them an outfit in their favourite colour. So, don’t miss this simple yet effective trick of making your child feel special!
Let Them Decorate The Cake
You may be planning to make a perfectly decorated cake for your child’s birthday. Though selecting the cake yourself may feel tempting, there’s a better way.
Try this: Buy or bake your child’s favourite cake. Then give your child different toppings like candy, sprinkles, and frosting. Allow them to decorate the cake however he likes. The cake may not look perfect, but imagine the happiness your child will experience after decorating the cake.
Plan a Treasure Hunt
Every child loves to play games. So why not turn gift-giving into an exciting treasure hunt? You should leave a trail of clues in each room so that your child can find the gifts. You can also incorporate playing board games as some of the challenges/clues. It will be a fun plan that you can carry out.
Make a Birthday Basket
All kids love gift-filled stockings and Easter baskets. You can craft a birthday basket for your child. You can fill the basket with some trinkets and hang balloons from the basket. Siblings can pick out small gifts for the birthday sibling. Filling the basket with birthday gifts for him would be filling his heart with loads of joy – something you always want from your little champ!
Write Birthday Letters
Writing a birthday letter for your child every year can be one of the cutest things you can do.
You can highlight your child’s milestones and memorable moments from the past year in the letter. You can also include your child’s unique and funny moments and some quotes that your child frequently uses in the letter outline.
Handwritten letters are always memorable. Imagine the happiness and nostalgia your child will experience when they read the letters in the future!
Planning your child’s birthday is always a special feeling. Instead of planning overflowing parties, consider planning small birthday traditions that your child will remember for years to come.
