My kids’ birthdays are three weeks apart, which to some might seem ideal in the joint-party circuit . . . BUT . . . they are different genders. And while that little detail might not have been a big deal in their younger years, they both have very strong opinions of how they want their birthdays to be now. Here are just a few ways we’ve kept the peace and our sanity with the solo birthday party.
Dr. Seuss Party
When my kids were younger, they both LOVED Dr. Seuss books and given our Seussical last name, I knew we had to do this party at some point. Popular gender-neutral book series like Dr. Seuss, Corduroy, or Eric Carle offer a lot of food and activity theming options.
