Having 5 kids means that I am celebrating a birthday quite often around here. Not to mention nieces and nephews too. I don’t know about you but I find planning the perfect party and all the stuff that goes with it can be absolutely exhausting! Sometimes we all need a little bit of help and the new Netflix Birthdays On-Demand featurettes featuring all your kids’ favourite characters is just what you need to make that birthday party shine.
I was able to show my 4-year-old (a little after his birthday had passed) one of the birthday videos featuring one of his favourite Netflix shows, DinoTrux. He absolutely loved that his favourite characters were singing happy birthday just for him! I think this is one of the neatest ideas from Netflix yet and I can’t wait to do it again next year for my two younger boys.
My older 3 are a little too old for it but they loved watching the happiness on Oliver’s face when we played the video.
When it comes to planning your kids’ birthday parties, the pressure can be overwhelming for parents. You’re not alone, over three-quarters (82%) of parents around the world wish there was an easier way to make birthdays feel special for their kids. Wish granted, no candles required! Netflix is granting parents the ultimate birthday gift with the launch of 14 Birthdays On-Demand featurettes. Starring the characters in your kids’ favourite shows like Beat Bugs, Barbie and Pokemon, your kids will feel like the characters are singing just for them. And with the world’s most common birthday on September 16th, Netflix is giving parents the ultimate birthday hack right when they need it most.
I find two of my kids’ birthdays even harder because they are close to Christmas and Christmas Day. There is really nothing I can do about when they decided to enter this world but every year we try to do something special. I am finding it harder and harder to do the “perfect” party because I am out of ideas and they cost a lot.
I will tell you that with 5 kids, we don’t often have parties for school kids as I just can’t afford the big to-do but we always have a family party. I think I could do a kids’ party at home and with well now, at least for my younger ones, Netflix has some great ideas to “hack” that next birthday party, right out of the park.
Do you have any “hacks” for the perfect party?
