Birthday Balloon Pop

Today, my "baby" turned 6! 

(I guess I have to face the fact that 
my baby isn't a baby anymore!)

For a few years now, on their "real" birthdays (their parties are often several days later), my kids have enjoyed a special Birthday Pancake to start their day.  Made in the shape of the number of their new age decorated with a bit of whipped cream and sprinkles, it's a simple little tradition that they just love.

This year, I decided to add a new little activity to our birthday traditions ~ a Birthday Balloon Pop!  I came across the idea a few months ago at Increasingly Domestic and knew my kids would love it.  Well, boy, was it a hit today!!

It looks like a fairly ordinary bunch of balloons, 
but they're hiding a special surprise!

In each of the six balloons, is a dollar bill!

Armed with a pin, my daughter had a BLAST 
popping her balloons and watching the dollar bills 
float down to the ground.

Without a doubt, we'll be doing this for every birthday from now on!  (Her big sister is looking forward to her chance in a few weeks when she turns 9!)  

Check out this smile 
as she gathered up her birthday loot! 

Thanks so much, Amy at Increasingly Domestic, for this awesome idea!

  6. Aww.. I love reading about other family traditions. It inspires me to start more of our own. That's a really fun idea... I may well use that when my child is old enough (and responsible enough) to use a pin - she's only one!!
