birthday party ideas for multiples
Having triplets is unique. Planning birthday parties can become difficult if they are different sexes! Our triplets are a boy and 2 girls. They are now 7, and we have not had separate birthday parties yet, but I know that day will come. For now, we have a big joint birthday party. I have fun each year planning their parties, though they have started planning with me! Imagine them having an opinion about their own party! We've had different themes each year! It's fun to think of parties with a boy/girl theme like these:
bug & butterfly party
knights & princesses
age 1 ice cream party for all who volunteered, brought meals, were interested in the babies, prayed for us, helped us, etc. etc We invited over 100 people and baby A ate his entire cake!!!!
age 2 & 3 Easter Egg Hunt... they were born on Maundy Thursday, and this is a perfect birthday party!
age 4 Roger Day came & sang!! He is fantastic! www.rogerday.com
age 5 Bugs & Butterflies... Not to brag, but I looked back at pictures & couldn't believe I made cute food like ladybug cookies, ants on a log, and triplets in a blanket. I made bee t-shirts for the boys & gave each girl a pair of wings. We had a Bug Hunt, Bug Parade, Bug Dance, and Bug crafts & face painting. It was a fun party!
age 6 Knights & Princesses We gave the boys shields that I found at the Dollar Store. The girls wore their princess dresses and a horse and carriage took the children on rides throughout the neighborhood. It was so much fun!
age 7 Breakfast at Chick Fil A It was a great party & fall in the middle of everyone's Saturday. We had minis and milk!! Parents were welcome to stay for cinni minis & chicken minis, coffee, and milk! The cow made an appearance and the children LOVED it!
We're brainstorming for # 8! Thankfully it is not too soon!!
