    Default What do you do for mindees' birthdays?

    One of my mindee's birthday is coming up and I was wondering what you all do? I would love some ideas. He will be two and my other mindee on the day is also two.

    I try to do something I know birthday child will enjoy. for my 2 yr old mindee we went to the aquarium...we go often, but mindee loves going. For 3 yr old mindee we went on the bus (best thing ever!) To feed the ducks!
    Depending where we are, we have a party lunch & cake, & then cake at teatime with schoolies. Plus balloons!

    I had an 8 year old birthday not do long ago. Afterschool obviously but I blew up about 30 balloons and put them in the lounge on the floor for them to play with when they came in. We also had a little tea with all the things they don't normally get (crisps, chocolate, sweets, sausage rolls, etc) and I made a birthday cake. I also have the kids make a card and everyones name goes on it and i get them a little gift to. Went down a treat. Lots more birthdays coming up very soon to.

    If the child is with me on their birthday I put the bunting up and we have birthday cake. I give a card and present. I would do their favourite thing that day- favourite place/toy/activity etc.

    If the child is not with me on their actual birthday I just give card and present.

    (I only had 1st and 2nd birthdays here so far so children are a bit oblivious to what is going on with birthdays anyway!)
