Okay! Let’s get started with the ideas!

#1 Nothing get’s you more excited for your birthday than a BIRTHDAY COUNTDOWN birthday-countdown Place some fun Hershey candies in 12 little containers and bags and countdown in yummy style. fun-birthday-countdown You can also use these hourly on the day of your birthday!  Every hour you can open up a new present!

 

#2 BIRTHDAY BREAKFAST! A fun way to wake up–a special spot at the table for the birthday girl or boy! Add some confetti, balloons and these fun REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures! birthday-breakfast I don’t even think it matters what you serve for breakfast when it looks this cute! birthday-breakfast

Another fun idea to wake up too….#3 Decorate the Room (You can sneak in while they are sleeping or decorate it while they are at school!)

#4 If you can’t decorate the room…or just want the Birthday person to travel in style…DECORATE THE CAR   Fun idea for a kid…or adult!

#5 BIRTHDAY GAME This is such a fun game we have played! Take some long string and tie some candy to it every few feet…then string it all around your house. The birthday person has to start at the beginning and follow the string all around until they finally reach the end (we usually have a present at the end!)

It’s such a fun game that helps build up excitement…and you get chocolate along the way! (win win!)

 

#6 BIRTHDAY LUNCH Throw in some fun treats, confetti and a noisemaker and sneak it into the lunch box! So easy but really makes you feel special! birthday-lunch-surprise

#7 GIVING  TREATS What’s more fun then getting presents on your birthday? How about GIVING presents! Make these cute little Jolly Rancher Lollipops with the printables andd have the birthday kid pass them out to their class, friends, bus or even just people at the store! It will make them feel good to give and people will most likely wish them a Happy Birthday!  birthday-present-for-friends (you can also use these in treat bags for a party!)

 

#8 FRONT DOOR SURPRISE This is a great idea for friends–add a fun surprise on the door step!
