Teen Birthday Traditions
The adolescence years are upon us and creating a special birthday for your tween or teen is so important. You want to make sure that they know their day is special too. During the teenage years, I know it can be hard to come up with ideas that will appease the youth but that's where Get Your Holiday On comes in. I want to share with you a helpful list of inspiring traditions that will help make your teen's birthday extra special.
♥ When they wake up in the morning use streamers and balloons and have their bedroom door decorated.
♥ When they come into the living room put a sign up that says, “Happy Birthday!”
Teen Breakfast of Champions:
Have you ever heard of My Favorite Birthday Cake Pancake & Waffle Mix? This is made with pancake mix and confetti sprinkles. It works really well for waffle makers too. People rave about it and it's perfect for that morning breakfast or a replacement if they're not a huge fan of cake. 😉
Making A Birthday Cake is a Special Birthday Tradition
It's so much fun to bake with my kids in the kitchen. We create memories and they love doing it! A special birthday tradition could be to make a cake with your teen and let them pick out the kind of cake, the icing, and decorations for it.
If they don't like cake!
Most of my kids love birthday cake but my son isn't always a fan. Alternatives to birthday cake are just as good. Great ideas include…
Carmel Apples (you can find them here)
DQ Ice-cream Cake 😉
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Teen Birthday Party
Instead of creating their birthday party for them. Give your teen a budget and let them design the entire day. This would include the place where the party is held, menu options, and cake.
I know when I was a teenager I loved creating my own cake. I would add all kinds of color, sprinkles, and edible glitter!
I know, I know a sleepover can get a little crazy, lol. All the laughing, snickering and carrying on. My husband always looks at me like I'm insane when I tell him that our daughter wants to have a sleepover and invite 13 girls. He's like… I'm staying with my brother, lol. He doesn't haha but it makes me chuckle. :0)
Our daughter loveeeees having sleepovers so this is one of her favorite things to do for her birthday. All I have to provide is snacks, pizza, and drinks and she pretty much has the rest covered.
I don't care how old my babies get. They'll be 52 and I will still be telling them I love them and how much joy it brought to my life when they were born. Taking that time to let your teen know how special they are to you. That time is worth a million dollars even if they don't act like it, it does. 🙂
Decorate A Vehicle
If they were waking up to Happy Birthday in the mirror that would be a treat but could you imagine their face if their entire car was decorated. It doesn't have to be just by you. You could make it a family effort or invite a few of their closest friends to help surprise them in the morning.
Who doesn't like to have their choice of dinner options?! A fun way to celebrate their birthday is to let the birthday boy or girl celebrate it by picking out what they get to eat for dinner but of course, picking a restaurant to eat at is that much cooler!
