Don’t you remember how excited you used to be when you were a kid and you could finally exclaim, “I’m five and a HALF!” or “I’m seven and a HALF!”? Why not mark the occasion as a crossroads for the under-10 crowd since we believe that reaching the age when you can add “half” to your age always seems like that? Nine ways to celebrate your child’s half-birthday are listed below.
We celebrate each child’s full birthday as well as their half-birthday with a variety of half-cakes, which means we have 12 occasions to rejoice each year. But it needs to be a major production for a half-birthday achievement. We do tiny things to make the half-birthday child feel a little special, but we don’t buy presents or go out to eat! Here are some ideas for how we like to brighten their day:-
Wake Up Your Child With a Song
Sing the birthday song to wake up your child on their half-birthday. When your child is awake, embrace them in your arms and give them hugs and kisses while you all gather close to the cot and start singing the song. Decorate the cot with balloons and streamers from earlier that evening.
Decorate the House
Without the decorations, the birthday party would fall short of perfection. Although your child may not be old enough to appreciate and notice the decorations, they are necessary for the atmosphere and Instagrammable great photos. If you need more inspiration, look into half-year birthday party ideas. You’ll undoubtedly find some creative suggestions there. enlarge with “Happy Birthday” wishes, balloons, and handmade ornaments.
Order a half Pound of Happiness
Cakes and birthdays go together like peanut butter and jelly. If a boy is celebrating his birthday, present him with a half-themed cake covered in whipped cream and decorated with spirals and a blue rosette on one side. If it’s for a girl, she’ll be drawn to a pretty white-pink cake with colorful sprinkles. You can order a half-birthday cake online or buy from cake shop near you for the celebration of your half-year birthday.
Celebrate with a Special Dessert
We rarely bake during the week, but we want to make something special for a half-birthday. A simple sheet cake, a pan of brownies, or some molasses cookies are all wonderful alternatives—not a completely lavish birthday cake! We love singing happy half-birthday to the kid and lighting a candle in whatever we are serving!
Arrange For A Photo Booth
Particularly when organizing a half-birthday party, you don’t want to miss any of your child’s important moments. Plan a picture booth with props like quirky glasses, birthday hats, a signboard, and quotes for the party. Finally, be ready for your child’s entrance in style by placing them in a basket or a vehicle with an insert that says “Halfway to One.”
Make Something a Special/Different for Breakfast
Making breakfast different from the usual routine, even if it’s only something as simple as serving pancakes instead of their usual cereal and toast, or surprising them with a little powdered sugar doughnut snowman with cut gumdrops for eyes, nose, and buttons, makes the day feel more special.
Serve Everything Half
Everything needs to match the theme because it is your child’s half-birthday. First, make sure your menu includes kid-friendly foods like burgers, pizza, sandwiches, chunks, fries, and juice. The pizza, the burgers, and the juice bottles/glasses should all be cut in half. Serve each plate in halves. Half of the dishes and napkins may even be your silverware.
Let them to stay up an extra 30 minutes
A little bit more cuddling time with Mom, perhaps an extra book at bedtime, or even a little bit more TV viewing while the other siblings sleep soundly all contribute to the half-birthday youngster feeling that this is truly a delightful day!
Everyone at the gathering gave a big shout-out to the young munchkins that came. Exchange favors showing your gratitude and appreciation. As return presents, you can give soft toys, goodie bags, and sweets. They should be neatly packaged, and “Thank You for Holding Good Time” should be written on each one.
These half-birthday party suggestions are for your child’s happy and exciting birthday celebrations.
