Birthdays are celebrated as joyous occasions, from quietly given gifts, to intimate family dinners, to enormous surprise parties, to raucous all night parties in glitzy nightclubs. For children, especially, birthdays can be special occasions, and days for everyone to say We love you and we are glad that you were born. We are grateful that you are a part of our lives and we want to celebrate your special day! Its fun to make a big deal out of a child is birthday.
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.
Make a paper airplane for each child. Be sure and weigh down the nose (use a paper clip.) so that the plane will fly straight. Put each childs name on a plane. Have the children line up across a wall. Tell them to throw their planes when you count to three. The child that tosses their plane the farthest wins the game.
Happy Birthday To You, the birthday song heard the world over, is actually protected by copyright. Quite how they manage to enforce this is beyond me for such a massive worldwide song. Apparently the birthday song brings in around $2 million a year in royalties from publishing rights (which is owned now by Summy-Birchard, a company under the AOL Time Warner umbrella who paid $25 million for the company which was then called Birch Tree and then changed to Summy-Birch).
Something For Everyone
When selecting a locale, it is important to think about what activities and entertainment will be in store for the kids who attend the party. For kids birthday parties, find a location that has plenty to do so everyone will have fun and be kept busy throughout the day. One of the best suited venues, which offers something for everyone, is an amusement park setting. For kids birthday parties, this type of facility has it all for the 8 to 18 year old age group.
