Birthdays can be difficult to plan, especially for kids. As a parent, you have to appease the masses, but you also place high expectations on yourself to make this birthday the best one yet. Luckily, the team at Chester Skateland came to put in the hard work to make planning birthdays for your kids a stress-free experience.
Instead of planning something extravagant, why not do something simple your child will cherish forever? Here are some fun birthday traditions to incorporate into your child’s celebration this year.
While they’re sleeping, grab some balloons, streamers, and tape and make an iconic birthday king or queen entryway.
Be a genie and grant them three wishes (realistic ones)
Do they want ice cream for breakfast? Done. Want to watch their favorite TV show ALL DAY? Done. Skip school for the day? Done, as long as there are no tests that day.
Plan a present scavenger hunt
Once you have their present wrapped, hide it somewhere in your home. Create clues to help your child find it! Doing this will increase their excitement to open the gift you got them. (Bonus: it’ll develop their problem-solving skills too).
Interview the birthday kid
Every birthday, conduct an interview for your kid. Record it to create a movie for them when they’re all grown up. Not only will this be a good keepsake for them, but it will also be meaningful for you to look back on how much they’ve grown and changed.
Annual birthday outing
Whether it’s camping, a shopping spree, or a trip to the rink, having a tradition of going somewhere or doing something makes a birthday extra special.
Everyone dress in his or her favorite color
Not only will this make the birthday girl or boy feel extra special, but it will also be interesting to see how their favorite color might change over the years.
They grow up so fast, so why not document it? Seeing how much they have grown from the year prior will be a huge confidence boost.
Decorate the whole house according to their interests
Are they into unicorns this year? Make the whole house all rainbows and sparkles! They will feel so special that not only are their interests recognized, but also celebrated.
Birthday planning shouldn’t be so daunting. That’s why having special traditions are key components to a happy celebration. Whether you’re decorating the house for your little one or venturing out to the rink with your tween, it’s always a good time to celebrate your child and how much they’ve grown and changed over the years.
