A baby's second birthday is a fun event because the toddler can show the joy and excitement on his face. Opening gifts, eating cake and reading pretty cards make a birthday party memorable. Parents often keep the creative and sentimental cards that celebrate the occasion. Baby's second birthday card can be a personal message commemorating the special event.
Getting friends and family together for baby's first birthday is celebrating an important milestone. Baby and mommy came through the first year unscathed. But, baby's second birthday is a fun event because the baby can participate in the celebration. By age 2 the baby is walking (or running) and will find delight in opening gifts, seeing the balloons and eating birthday cake. It is a very special day that calls for special expressions of love and enjoyment.
The trend now is to create your own cards. E-cards are nice, but some people like to keep special cards in their special treasures box. Buy the card designs and templates from any craft store, and making the card only requires scissor and glue. The birthday card for the baby then becomes a true expression of personal emotions and feelings. The cards can be customized to baby's theme colors or to the theme of the party. Incorporate pictures of relatives into the card for years of enjoyment.
The best part about making a birthday card for the 2-year-old is that the message can be personalized to the child. The message can be about a funny habit the child has, or can be about all of the first experiences she will be embarking upon during year two. The best greetings are simple and expressive. Remember that the card is for a child so keep the writing light and fun, rhyming if possible.
There are books and websites that have sample verses you can use in the card. But for a more personalized care and a fun activity, ask other family members to make up a sentence about the birthday child, and then incorporate the sentences into the card.
Here is a sample message:
"This is your day, now you are two, there is so much to see and do. Remember that we love you so and will protect you as you grow.
Happy Birthday, 2-year-old."
