Another tip is to try talking cards. The moment you open it, it would say 'Happy Birthday' or some sweet little words. Some times you would come across interesting things like a cat meowing or a dog barking. They are also real fun. These players are battery operated so it is another item to keep in the list. Likewise other interesting idea is to take a musical card. You can choose among the birthday tune and some happy kids' songs. At times, you may also gift a card that plays classic songs.
For instance, if their favorite color is yellow _ start cutting out images sun, flowers, bananas, and anything yellow from your old magazines, calendars, wrapping paper, and other media. Collect all of your yellow images and glue them onto the front of a white, black, or colored card that contrasts with the color used in the collage. Now use a circular or square piece of colored cardstock and write "Have a Very Yellow Birthday!" This is a fun way to celebrate the individual and a unique way to show your own thoughtfulness and creativity.
