A step-by-step guide to play the game

Create a birthday wishes banner

Create a big, colourful banner with birthday wishes, kind messages and creative drawing for each child’s birthday. Whenever a child has a birthday coming up, everyone can add something special to the banner for them, whether it’s a drawing of their favourite animal, a heartfelt wish, or a fun message.

On the day of their birthday celebration, unveil the banner as a big surprise to show them how much everyone cares. This way, each child feels celebrated, and the banner becomes a memorable part of every birthday! 

Design a unique crown for the birthday child

Design together a special crown that the child can wear on their big day. Use colourful paper, glitter, ribbons and jewels to create a crown that’s as unique as they are. Think about what they love – maybe they like dinosaurs, stars, or flowers – and use those ideas to make the crown really special.

When it’s ready, the birthday child gets to put it on and wear it all day, feeling like a royalty. It’s a fun way for them to stand out and feel extra special during their birthday celebrations!

Invent a special birthday celebration game for your group

Let’s think outside the box and find a fun new way to celebrate birthdays, something different from the usual cake and candles. What about planning a treasure hunt based on what the birthday kid loves, putting on a talent show where everyone shares something cool, or having a party where you make awesome crafts together?

Get input from the birthday child and see what the whole group thinks would be the most fun. This way, every birthday is a unique adventure that’s personalised just for them!
