Do you have birthday traditions in your family? You know, the special things you do on your little one’s birthday that make it extra special? Our daughter is only 2 years young, but we are slowly adding family traditions that I hope we continue for years to come. Here is what we’ve started to do…
1. Special Breakfast. I make sure I make all her favorites. Pancakes shaped like Mickey Mouse with whip cream, a berry smoothie and scrambled eggs.
2. Birthday Crown. I’ve started making a special crown for each of her birthdays. I make it out of felt so that she can keep it throughout the year and play dress up with it.
3. A Book of Yearly Pictures. I made a Blurb Book for my daughter after her first birthday. It was filled with all of our instagram pictures from her first year of life. I just finished the second one for her last week. It’s filled with new pictures from this past year. What a keepsake to be able to look back on each year!
4. A Special Something. We always give her wrapped presents to open, but we also take a trip to the toy store and let her pick out something on her very own. Nothing huge, just a special little something.
