For many children, their birthday is their favorite day of the year. They get all of the attention they have ever wanted, they get to hang out with all of their friends at a cool birthday party, and of course, they get presents. But this is a special day for parents as well. This is the day their little bundle of joy came into the world many years ago. Celebrating your kiddo’s birthday can be exciting for you as well!

While some parents may not put a lot of thought into their child’s birthday party past the cake, presents, and friends to invite, others go above and beyond to make sure their kid has the best birthday party ever. Whether it is an extra special year for your child or you just want to make this birthday one to remember, creating the perfect birthday party doesn’t have to be dramatic and excessive!

At Jumpin’ Jamboree, we can help you plan the perfect, fun, and exciting birthday party that your kiddo will love! In this blog, we are going to give you tips to help you plan the ultimate, exciting birthday party extravaganza! Read on for tips to making your kid’s birthday party, from start to finish, one to remember.

Start With Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and many children’s favorite, most likely because of all the sugar. Surprise your birthday kiddo with their favorite breakfast first thing in the morning, whether it is French toast, waffles and berries, or the one sugary cereal that you only get on special occasions.  This is a special occasion after all, and calls for the sugariest of cereals! Eat breakfast as a family and enjoy some time at the beginning of the day together. This is a great way for your child’s birthday to start!

Spend Time With Them

You want to have some quality time with your kiddo on their birthday. We love being around our loved ones on their special days. Before their birthday party starts or before any of your other plans, spend some time with your kid doing what they love. Go to the beach, explore some natural areas, play their favorite board game, or do whatever else they want to do. Maybe they want to go for a bike ride to get ice cream; everyone needs more sugar after a sugar-filled breakfast. Doing something as a family with your birthday child is a great idea before throwing a birthday party. This allows the birthday to be centered around the family and not just the birthday party and presents.

Make Sure Everyone Knows

If your child loves attention, as many kids do, make sure everyone knows that it is their birthday! Make them a birthday crown, a cape, or something else that they can wear around all day to let everyone know it is their birthday. They will love wearing their birthday gear around throughout the day — it’ll make them feel extra special.

Hide Birthday Messages

Before your birthday kiddo wakes up, hide birthday messages throughout the house. Write a message on the bathroom mirror. Hide a note in their sugary cereal box. Place notes throughout the house that wish them a happy birthday and tell them how special they are, maybe even give them some hints about their presents or their birthday party plans. You can hide as many notes as they are old or just hide as many as possible. Your kid will be excited every time they find a new note!

Start a Tradition

The fun thing about birthdays is that your kid is one year older, which means they have lived 365 more days and have learned a lot. Start a tradition of interviewing your kiddo on their birthday and record it or write down their answers. Ask them what they have learned in the past year, what their most memorable moment was, what is something they wish they would have done, and so on. It’ll be fun for them to look back on these videos when they are older to see what they learn and what they were like. Be sure to do this each birthday, even when they become a sassy teenager who doesn’t want to sit in front of the camera.

Balloons, Balloons, Balloons!

Balloons are fun for people of all ages! Surprise your birthday kid with balloons. You can fill their room with balloons while they sleep so that they wake up to a colorful and exciting scene. Or you could fill the living room and kitchen with balloons to give them a fun, mini birthday party surprise as they come in for breakfast. A balloon avalanche is another great way to create a balloon surprise. To do this, blow up a ton of balloons and use some type of plastic or a sheet to contain the balloons in your kiddos doorway. Tape the sheet or plastic along the doorframe to keep it in place. When your child opens the door in the morning they will be surprised with balloons falling all over them!

Make It Less About Gifts

While gifts are fun to get as a child, it probably shouldn’t be emphasized as the most important part of a birthday. Starting at an early age, try to not make the birthday about the gifts, make it about the experience. Birthdays are about celebrating another year lived fully and growing older, so any birthday party or celebration should be about commemorating that, rather than what toys your kiddo will get which will stop playing with in a year.  Whether you only give your child one gift or ask their friends not to bring gifts, this might help make a birthday more special.
