You Say It's Your Birthday!

Today we celebrated our daughters birthdays.  They are not twins but were born two years apart to the day!  We actually celebrate for about a week but today was our family dinner celebration where we let them choose any place to go out to eat.

Since everyone has gone to bed and I've got birthdays on my brain, I decided to whip up some cute bee themed birthday cards to use this year with some adorable clip art from Scrappin' Doodles.  (I saw these little birthday bees with the big glasses a couple weeks ago and couldn't resist!)

I have always ordered cards from Vistaprint or Really Good Stuff or some other place to use but when I saw these cuties, I knew I was going to make my own.

There are six different designs and sayings with two per page.  I like to have all the kids in the class sign the back with their personal birthday wishes.  They get quite fun and creative with different colored pencils or doodles.  The birthday boy or girl also gets a birthday pencil and sticker and can bring treats to school to share.  We sing a couple different birthday songs and give a birthday blessing.

You can get them at my TN shop by clicking on the image below.

I hope you can use them.

If you'd like to win a set, just leave me a comment telling me how you celebrate birthdays in your class.

  1. Birthdays are always a wonderful time to celebrate. For my kiddos birthdays they get to wear a special birthday hat along with other special preferences for that day. They also get a Birthday bag with goodies in it.

  2. These would be perfect for my room! I used to give each of my little darlings a beanie baby toy because they were super cheap and easy to find. Then for the last few years I have been using the PINTEREST idea of the paper ballon attached to a pixie stick. I have the same ballon ready for this year but attached to the twirly twisty straws that I found at Micheals in the spring. Birthdays involving singing, food if the parents bring it and I send home a 'literacy bag' for the students to work on as well, which gets returned.

    1. I did the twisty straws with the paper balloons last year and I'd forgotten about them. HA!

  3. We order a special treat from the kitchen( no outside food is allowed to be brought in) I make them a crown and have the other children draw a birthday wish as soon as they come in in the morning. The birthday child gets to be the special helper and we sing happy birthday during our morning meeting. I give them a special card and in the past have done some sort of little birthday book or prize.
