You’ve already made arrangements to turn your child’s birthday photos into canvas prints that you can hang in the hallway or over the fireplace, but now you want to go that extra mile and make his birthday beyond special this year.
As an adult, some of the best memories come from childhood birthday parties. The magic of the part is memorable than the materials used to make it. Of course, every parent is going to sing “Happy Birthday,” make a cake and have friends over, but how do you make that party extra special and one they will always remember. Read on below to find out how to make your child’s birthday super special this year.
Arcade game rentals
Whether it’s Ms. Pac Man, Dance, Dance Revolution, or an arcade shooting game, you can’t go wrong with arcade game rentals to make a party super special. There are even places that you can rent the latest video game consoles to make the party even better. Make your child’s birthday extra special by making his party a video game one, with all the latest games and consoles.
Let them choose dinner for the family
Kids love to be able to choose their dinner from time to time, but it’s even more special when they can choose dinner for the entire family. Whether it’s eating in or eating out, let them make the choice to add that little bit of something extra to their birthday this year.
Do a birthday countdown
If possible, start counting down your child’s birthday a week ahead. One fun and exciting thing to do is a birthday pop countdown with balloons. Each day, your child gets to pop a balloon leading up to the big day. It’s a fun way to celebrate and let them enjoy the attention a little longer. You can even put a piece of candy or a small prize in the balloons for added fun and excitement.
Plan a big surprise
Does your little one have an activity that he has wanted to do forever and hasn’t gotten to yet? Plan an activity as a big surprise for him on his birthday. Whether it’s a trip to the space museum or a trip to the local amusement park, if it’s something he has been dying to do, then you will make it an extra special treat by giving it to him on his birthday. Invite a few of his closest friends to join you on the trip and his day will be complete.
Plan a morning surprise
Who says that all birthday celebrations have to be in the afternoons or at night? Morning surprises are just as fun and unexpected. Even if you’re planning a big party later on in the day, a few morning surprises will bring a smile to your little ones face and start their birthday off the right way. Even decorating the house after he’s in bed the night before can bring a smile to his face when he wanders out of his bedroom the next morning.
Honorable mention: Spend the day together
There is nothing like spending the day together to make your child’s birthday to feel extra special. Sure you want to throw a big party and have plenty of presents, but what about after the party is over? Instead, of just going back to your daily routine, spend the rest of the day together as well. Even if it’s just playing board games or curling up to watch a movie together, it will end the day on a great note, and make the birthday extra special indeed.
These are just a few of the top ways to make your child’s birthday extra special. Remember, love and spending time together on their big day are key!
