Birthdays are a great way to introduce some special family traditions. With all the expense & time spent organising parties and gifts…sometimes it’s the extra special little things that make the day memorable 🙂
One tradition that we have started in our house is filling a room or their bedroom with balloons, streamers, decorations etc. Even if you are not having a party at home.
Another birthday tradition we have had since the kids could eat solids is to make special birthday pancakes for breakfast with a candle on top 😊
Every birthday we always let the birthday boy or girl pick whatever they want to eat for dinner. Some years I have eaten noodles because it’s what they wanted LOL!
One thing my two LOVE is that on their birthday they don’t have to do any chores and get to watch whatever they choose on tv etc 😊 a great perk to it being your birthday 😊
These are just a few things that we do in our home to make a birthday more memorable 😊 A great one that I’m looking to add to the list is using washable paint markers and writing “honk for willows 8th birthday” on our car!!
Let me know if you have any birthday traditions, I’d love to hear them 😊
