Make every member of the family feel special with these Family Birthday Celebrations. Creative ideas and family traditions for celebrating every year of life!
Family Birthday Celebrations
As the kids in our home increase, the birthday parties with friends decreased. Our girls were 7 and 8 when their younger brother came and 8 and 9 when their additional brothers (twins) came. That being said, there were years that it was easy (and affordable) to throw them a yearly birthday party with friends. They have gotten older, and less interested, and I have been researching ways to make them feel loved at home without spending hundreds of dollars.
Below are creative ways to make your younger kids, your spouse, or your teens feel special on their date of birth!
Make sure you get all the way to the bottom of this post because we have a really creative away for you to pay it forward and for you to give back to others each and every birthday – such a wonderful lesson for you kids! It comes with a free printable!
