It is one of the most commonly used phrases in the English language, sung around the world on a daily basis, but what do birthdays really mean to us?
In this same year the song was published in the songbook Song Stories for the Kindergarten. The song proved to be very popular and underwent some small changes to lyrics over time, though always based upon a greeting song for either teachers to students, or changed from students to teachers.
When kids get to a certain age, they start to get really concerned about what is cool and what is not. By the tween and teen years, this way of thinking is in full effect. As a parent, this makes planning any activities, such as kids birthday parties, extra difficult, as its not always easy to find a location that meets your childs cool criteria.
Happy Birthday to you,
Kids also like to try out different activities from year to year when it comes to birthday party places. They not only want to find a place they have not celebrated at in the past, but also somewhere that might be unique, some place not all their friends have hosted parties. For a venue that fits the bill, consider an amusement park.
Make it festive! Make it colourful! Make it bright! Three hundred and sixty-four days of the year we can teach our kids to be well-mannered , to get along with others, to share, and we teach them to accept being treated just like everyone else by the world at large, with no special privileges. On that three hundred and sixty-fifth day, however, break all the rules. Sure, children must still be polite and cooperative on that day, too, but let them know that they really are special, and that birthdays are special holidays just for them alone, celebrations of their births, and theirs alone!
