Fortunately, there are other creative ways to making your child’s birthday an exceptional event, even if you are home with household family members.

The good news is that you don’t have to throw an elaborate birthday party for your kids to feel celebrated on his or her special day. You can make special memories without draining your bank account and without all the stress.

You can pick and choose and mix and match from these non-party ideas.

1. DO A BIRTHDAY COUNTDOWN

A birthday countdown is a fun way to get your kiddo even more excited about the big day, and a great way to give them a little extra attention on the days leading up to their birthday. If your child’s birthday coincides with other big holidays or events, this is an even more important way to showcase them when they might otherwise feel a little less important.

2. A SPECIAL BOOK THE NIGHT BEFORE

One way to get your kids excited about their birthday is by reading a birthday-themed book the night before the big day!

Some favorites include:

3. FILL THEIR ROOM WITH BALLONS

When your little munchkin is sleeping , fill her/his room with balloons—then get ready for squeals of delight when she/he discovers them!

4. BIRTHDAY WAKE UP CALL – DECORATE THEIR DOORWAY

One easy birthday tradition kids will remember forever is waking up, opening up their door and seeing it fully decorated. While your little one {or big one since I still do this} is sleeping, decorate their door with crepe paper, balloons, and/or a happy birthday sign. No one knows your child better than you, so get creative! 

Remember decorations don’t need to be expensive or fancy for kids to love them. 

  • Something to consider when decorating their door is to include a balloon avalanche. You use a clear plastic cover, fill it with balloons and tape it to their doorway.

5. DECORATE THE HOUSE

Each year kids find a new character or thing to love – why not incorporate their love for dinosaurs, princesses or science and decorate the house. One fun idea is to use the balloon walkway as a guide leading up to a room that’s decorated specifically for their birthday! If you don’t want to spend the money on themed party supplies, which can get pricey, there are tons of fun reusable birthday supplies you can use to decorate.

6. BIRTHDAY BREAKFAST

One super fun way is to start the day off right with a festive breakfast. These are mostly sugary sweet, but hey, birthdays only come once a year!

What’s a birthday without cake? It’s ok to spoil them one day out of the year by breaking the breakfast rules.

If you are a rule follower, like me, then you can make a traditional breakfast filled with a birthday twist. Some birthday breakfast ideas include:

  • Sprinkle or Funfetti Pancakes
  • Waffle Sundaes
  • Bacon and Egg Smiley Faces
  • Doughnut tower

Whatever you decide to make, center it around the birthday kid, and you’ll be set!

You can take their birthday breakfast up a notch by serving it on a special plate or by decorating their chairs. These small touches go a long way and do not go unnoticed. Something as small as a special birthday breakfast is a birthday tradition kids will remember forever. 

Don’t forget to add candles!

The night before their birthday you can go around the house and hide their present/s. The next morning you can play a fun birthday themed rendition of hot/cold to help your kids find their presents. It makes gift-giving all that more exciting and you can’t help but smile while watching them joyfully go hunting through the rooms for a present.

8. SAY YES!

All year long kids have to obey rules and follow routines, but once a year it’s ok to say YES! {Within reason – of course} In simple terms, make their birthday all about them! Where do they want to go? What do they want to do? Where do they want to eat? What do they want to eat? All very simple things that make a HUGE difference. Remember birthday traditions do not need to be expensive, they are all about making memories. 

9. LET THEM DECORATE THEIR OWN CAKE

With as many sprinkles as they want.
