Birthday Activities and Ideas for Kids
Celebrate your child with this birthday box filled with simple, meaningful activities and ideas for you and your child to enjoy together on their special day. All ideas and activities are completely flexible and can take as little or as much time as you want. Have fun doing them all in one day, or make the fun last and celebrate all week!
When you make the activities as child-led as possible, your child is learning to listen, ask questions, and follow directions. In addition, when you let your child take the lead, you are providing an opportunity to help build their self-esteem, promote independent thinking, and grow their decision making skills.
Start a birthday tradition! The Birthday Box is a gift that can be kept and used from year to year. If you have more than one child, use it for each of your children! Using it for half-birthdays would be fun, too. ;)
