Your child is going to look forward to their birthday months before it arrives. Starting from their last birthday and after every friend's birthday they attend through the year, they will continuously ask the same question, “Is it my birthday tomorrow?" Let them know how important their birthday is and make sure they are apart of the planning process. Start by choosing their birthday theme with them.
Every child is different, including siblings. You’ll want to choose a theme that is unique to what your child is currently involved in. No matter what theme you choose if they had a part in the decision they will be more excited. If you get no response or participation, try and ask them what they are interested in. Guide them in choosing a theme, without coming out and choosing it for them. Look at the type of TV shows they are watching or books they are reading. If you still can’t uncover the Ultimate Theme, try answering the questions below.
What type of activities do they like?
- Do they like hands-on activities?
- Do they like to put things together?
- Do they like to play with action figures?
- Do they collect things?
- Do they like clean or dirty activities (glue, glitter, paint or cutting)?
What type of games do they play?
- Do they like to play sports?
- Do they like to play tag?
- Do they like individual or group games?
- Do they like interaction games?
What type of themed characters do they like?
- Do they have a favorite cartoon character?
- Do they like to act like a certain character?
- Do they like to dress up in a certain costume?
- Do they like to wear paint, hats or any type of props?
- Do they like to use their imagination and pretend to be pirates or cowboy and Indians?
After you have answered these questions, you should have a good idea on what your child would like and what kind of games and activities will excite your child. If they are really into sports, try a soccer or basketball theme. What about themed parties like Finding Nemo or Spongebob? If they are into dressing up and using their imagination, try a Pirates or Army theme. Narrow the theme down to a few that fit the answers to these questions and let them decide. Once they’ve decided on a theme, it’s time to move to the next step and establish a budget.
