Half birthday cake--what a great way to surprise the kids on their half birthday! {And good excuse for cake!} ... Perfect for bdays around Christmas

Half Birthday Cake

so how cool would it be to do one of these for your kid? 1st side in kindergarten and 2nd side when they graduated high school?

After the kiddos are done their regular chores they can pick a "work for hire" job to get money.

Popcorn cake :). Made this for my four year old niece's bday party. Used half strawberry marshmallows to turn it pink. It was a success. Definitely spray your cake pan with pam because the mixture is just like rice crispy treats and super sticky. I used a plastic knife to loosen from the sides so I wouldn't scratch my pan!

Baby's First Birthday - have guests write notes for the birthday boy or girl to read on their 18th birthday!

Happy Birthday avalanche! Close bedroom door trap balloons against the door frame when the person opens their door the next morning, it's raining balloons,

Sticker Faces! This would be a cute surprise in a lunch box! :-)

Lunchbox Cupboard: the kids pack their lunches... pick one from each drawer (fruit, granola bars, snacks, desserts, drinks) The parent chooses what goes in the drawer, but the child learns to make their own choice of what to eat. Very cool idea.

We decided to give the girls a Year of Dates for Christmas this year – an envelope for each month, with a special surprise date inside. We brainstormed date ideas and came up with a variety of fun activities. Some are outings, while some are doing projects at home. We also tried to keep them fairly inexpensive.

Surprise with balloons on birthday when waking up.

Half Birthday Cake - what a great idea for kids who would enjoy celebrating their birthday at an opposite time of year! My summer kids could have b'days during the winter and my winter kids in summer. Very clever.
