9. Collect Autographs. On your child’s birthday, bring in a white t-shirt and fabric paint or markers. Have each child sign the t-shirt with their name and a birthday wish. This can also be done with a white pillowcase or the cover of a notebook.

10. Plan an End-of-Year Birthday Bonanza. If your kid's birthday is during summer break, connect with other parents of kids who have birthdays during school vacations to plan a celebration during the last week of school. If you’re celebrating summer birthdays, encourage the kids to reflect on their year and make predictions about who they’ll be when they come back in the fall. Bring in mini-notebooks and have the kids exchange autographs and summer or birthday wishes.

11. Throw a Season Mix-Up Party. If your child’s birthday is in summer, bring summer to school in the middle of winter. Plan activities that compare winter and summer, and celebrate with summer activities (color cards with a summer theme, eat popsicles or ice cream, drink lemonade).

Whatever the number of birthday candles on your child’s cake, a little planning goes a long way to creating a classroom celebration he’ll remember for years to come!
