What about the Rest of the Family on Birthdays?

Birthday Numbers Invitations

Birthday parties are special days for the guest of honor, but what do you do with the rest of the family?

Siblings:  If there is a younger sibling you need to decide if you will buy a small gift for them or tell them that they will have their own birthday and they will be the stars on their day.  You may want to make plans to have Grandma or a babysitter be in charge of them so you can concentrate on the birthday child.  If there are older siblings, you may want to have them invite a friend and then enlist their help with other party guests and games.

Pets:  Party time is a good time to schedule your pet for grooming or let them visit a neighbor. If your animal doesn’t mind, you can put them in the garage or the laundry room, but don’t let them spend the time howling or barking. Don’t forget to put fish, hamsters and lizards in a safe place, too.

Get everyone involved in the action and have a great time!

Kids Birthday Traditions to Start with Your Child

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

It’s never too late to start a birthday tradition with your child. Do you remember something fun from birthdays when you were a child? Why not start a tradition you and your child can look forward to year after year.

Fantasy Cake Kids Birthday Invitation

Fantasy Cake Kids Birthday Invitation

  1. Let them pick out their birthday party invitations, decorations and food to be served, even if it’s just a party with family as the guests.
  2. Let them help make or decorate their birthday cake or cupcakes the night before their birthday.
  3. Wake them up by singing “Happy Birthday” and throw in some hugs and tickles to start off their special day.
  4. Fill their room with their favorite color balloons (make sure they are old enough for the balloons not to be a hazard.)
  5. Create a treasure hunt for little birthday goodies you’ve hidden around the house or in their room.
  6. Let them choose their favorite breakfast. If they choose something besides cereal, put candles in it if possible.
  7. Let them choose their favorite restaurant or dinner for the whole family to enjoy together that night.
  8. Put a special note or birthday card in their school lunch.
  9. Give them a few “love coupons” that entitle them to something they love – popcorn and an extra half hour of TV before bed; pancakes on a Saturday morning; extended play date at their favorite little gym or the park.
  10. Plant a tree or a plant.
  11. Create a time capsule. Ask your child several questions, video tape their answers and then store the tapes away in a special box to be opened later, maybe at their 21st birthday. (You might want to transfer to DVD to survive the years.)
  12. Make a scrap book of birthday cards they receive every year.

Do you have a favorite birthday tradition? We’d love to hear from you.

Magic Invitations and an Amazing Card Trick

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

Magic invitations are a popular theme for kid’s birthday invitations.  You can find an entertainer for your birthday bunch through the internet, referrals from friends or local newspapers specializing in children or parenting.  We had a magician for my son’s second birthday party and he was totally enthralled through the whole show as were all the guests.

This YouTube video of James Galea at The 2009 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala for Oxfam Australia, will have you saying, “How did he do that?”  Enjoy!
