Around here birthday’s are a big deal. I believe in celebrating moments big and small, and I especially believe in making everyone feel extra special on their birthdays! I love coming up with fun ideas to surprise my kids the morning of their birthday, and this year was a big one. My twins recently celebrated their 10th birthday and I put together this fun 10th birthday morning tradition and surprise birthday sign.
Turning 10 is a big deal, it’s the official crossover into the double digit club. And when you have twins you get to have double the fun!
Ever since my kids were little I’ve been decorating their bedroom doors and creating a birthday morning surprise to make sure we start the day off right. In year’s past we’ve covered their door with streamers, balloons and photos. I’ve created a sticky note scavenger hunt that leads them downstairs to a special breakfast. But, this year I wanted to do something that was extra special and that showed my twins just how incredibly special they are.
I created this 10th birthday morning tradition and surprise birthday sign idea in less than 30 minutes and it is by far one of my favorite birthday surprises I’ve ever done!
I used a roll of white bulletin board paper (and pink) and cut it to cover the entire length of their bedroom doors. Next, I used my Cricut to cut out their names and the saying Happy 10th Birthday in colorful cardstock. I glued those to the top part of the sign and then cut out the numbers 1 through 10 and glued those down the left side of the sign.
Together my husband and I came up with 10 reasons why we love them and I hand wrote each of those on the signs. I absolutely love how these signs turned out, they are so personal and perfectly reflect how we feel about our twins.
This tradition could be used for any birthday celebration or milestone, it’s such a fun and easy way to celebrate your special birthday girl or boy!
