The Birthday Statue Game :
In 1893 Mildred was working at the Louisville Experimental Kindergarten School where her sister was also working as Principle. Mildred came up with the melody we all now associate with the happy birthday song, and sister Patty added the lyrics and so was born the song Good Morning to All, a simple and catchy song for teachers to use to welcome their students into the class room each day. It went like this:
The Happy Birthday Song story starts in Kentucky with 2 sisters called Mildred J. Hill (born in 1859), and Patty Smith Hill (born in 1868). Another sister called Jessica also played a role, but more on that later. Patty was a nursery school teacher (and eventually principle) who helped found the Institute of Child Welfare Research and Columbia in 1924, and also created the Patty Hill Blocks used in schools nationwide. Mildred, like her sister, also started out as a kindergarten and Sunday school teacher but she eventually became a concert pianist and composer, she took a very scholarly approach to music and specialised in the field of Negro spirituals.
The happy birthday song story, a lot more to it than you may have thought.
Amusement parks and all the attractions they offer such as go karts, mini golf, arcade games, laser tag, rock climbing, bumper boats and rides provide hours of fun that really appeals to the tween and teen market. The activities here are considered cool, lots of fun and definitely age appropriate when planning kids birthday parties. Its also not every day that you get to drive go karts or ride bumpers boats with your friends, so an amusement park setting is definitely a unique choice when it comes to birthday party places.
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!
