Birthday Party Ideas

birthday party ideas

Keep in mind that each student's birthday can mean multiple celebrations:  one at home with family, a party with friends, and then another at school.  Food need not be a part of school parties.  Instead, you can find other lovely ways to recognize your child, celebrate them and make them feel special.

Teachers will often do some of these things....
  • Make a sign, sash, crown, button, or badge for the birthday child.
  • Let the birthday child be the teacher's assistant for the day;  they can do special tasks like make deliveries to the office or be line leader.
  • Let the birthday child choose an activity of a game.
  • Allow the student to pick a book and invite someone to come to the classroom to read it.
  • Play an indoor/outdoor game of the child's choice.
