    Hi My mindee turned one with me and yes i felt rather sad he was with me and not mum and dad for his first birthday.

    Mum made a whole load of cupcakes and we took them to playgroup and all the kids sang happy birthday.

    Otherwise i do a special lunch and we all sing happy birthday, make party hats stuff like that.

    Love Helen

    I would take a cake to baby group and get all the others to sing happy birthday and take lots of photos for mum, this would be easier than doing something at your house.

    I have in the past had parties for the children, sometimes with the parents here also x

    when my mindee spent her birthday with me, I invited another minder over with her mindees and had a little party for her. played pass the parcel and pin the nose of the snowman. decorated some cakes (which I then put candles on) and did her fave meal for lunch.

    She had a lovely time and Mum and Dad appreciated it.

    I usually do a party tea if a mindee is with me on their birthday.

    Whatever you do just take some photos for mum and dad - I'm sure they'll really appreciate that

    Have fun

    I was going to say photos as well... I put them on the computer as a slide show for when parents collect, then pop them on a cd as part of birthday present... we make party hats, play games with balloons, have party music on the cd player and I make sure the lunch is special...

    Have fun

    Thanks for all the advice. I only have him and my son at the mo. i did think about inviting his fave friend from group but i dont think its a good idea. As its a girl that my son use to be close to and they use to give each other kisses ect. My son hasnt seen her for awhile and now my mindee has this relationship with her and i think my son may get put out. when we made hats at xmas the mindee refused to wear it! Well do a special tea and ill put balloons upa nd get my son to make a happy birthday sign for the door.
    thanks
