This week just for fun, we did a birthday party theme. It was a lot of fun and easy to find activities for. The birthday party themed sensory bin:
party hats, blowouts, streamers, horns, happy birthday glasses, ribbon, clown nose, candles.
The kids enjoyed this sensory bin a fair bit although the candles got broken pretty quickly and the streamers didn’t last long either! The clown noses were especially popular!
These are the books that we used and they were all so much fun:
Some of the activities we did included a Birthday Color by Number sheet, birthday cake printable with candle cut-outs, party words that they matched with letter tiles, balloon colors mini books, cupcake cut and paste, and coloring pages.
With the 10 year olds, I also helped them make a birthday calendar filled in with all the dates for our family and some extended family and friends. The birthday calendar was a great way to re-inforce calendar concepts and printing and reading practise but they liked having a way to track everyone’s birthdays so I had no complaints!
I got some of my printables from:
At my mom’s office this week, they happened to have leftover balloons from a function they had had so I brought them to our house and added them into the homeschool room which brought another birthday party element in! The kids played games with them and ultimately, most of them got attached together into “flowers”.
