Five Fun Ideas for Birthdays

Today is a special day for me... 

It's the 20th Anniversary of my 21st Birthday!  

At the original celebration two decades ago, 
I spent my day surrounded by college friends 
and went out to a bar around 9 pm to start a long night of drinking .  

On this 20th Anniversary, 
I'll be spending my day surrounded by my three kids
and will go out for an early dinner at a kid-friendly restaurant 
so we can be home and in bed by 9pm! 
   
 Despite the fun (although somewhat hazy) memories of the original night, I know I'll like today's celebration just as much. Plus, I know I'll be feeling MUCH better tomorrow morning than I did the first time!


To celebrate this special day, 
here are Five Fun Ideas for Birthdays 
that I've shared here 
at Come Together Kids...


Here they are...


  
How many more days until the big day?
This cute little countdown stand 
makes it much easy to know the answer!
 


Start off the birthday person's day
with some yummy pancakes in the shape of the age they're turning!
Add some whipped cream and sprinkles for an extra special treat.



Blow up a balloon for each year of the birthday child's age,
putting a dollar bill in each one.
Let the lucky kid pop the balloon and watch the money fall out!



Cupcakes can be a good alternative to a traditional birthday cake.
They're easy to make and easy to serve.
This DIY stand make them easy to display as well!




Getting cash on your birthday is always good,
but this cute little trick makes it fun too!
