I love to make their birthdays a special day, but kids birthday have somehow gone completely overboard. I don’t have the budget for petting zoos and pony rides and balloon animals, but I do love my kid and want them to feel extraordinary.
The good news is, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make birthdays feel special. Some of my favorite birthday traditions don’t cost anything, and create memories that will last a lifetime. I love to decorate the night before so my kids wake up to a fun decorated house. I always let them choose their favorite foods to eat that day, and they always get the first slice of cake. Check out some of these fun birthday celebrations and traditions that are simple ideas with a big impact.
