7.  Give the Kids a Green Thumb

 Birthday party ideas Green Thumb

For a small cost you can purchase little starter pots and either seeds or seedling plants.  Take the kids out back and let them get their hands dirty.  Show them how to plant seedlings, perhaps even start a ‘birthday garden’.  The children will delight in either taking the plants home to put in their own yard, or will be proud to see the progress of the ‘birthday garden’ when they return next year.
