Celebrating Birthdays With Paper Hats

First of all Happy Labour Day to everyone.  A long weekend is always reason to celebrate.  But we had extra reason as today was my brother's birthday.  We don't usually have large parties or anything for birthdays but usually celebrate with a family dinner and birthday cake.  My girls wanted to make the celebration a little extra special though so we decided to make some party hats out of newspaper.  This is very simple to do (you can find some instructions here) and the girls had fun decorating them and then making my brother wear the special one they made for him.

Here is a picture of the birthday boy.

The girls with their hats beside the pink (yes they love pink) cake they made him.
(Oh in case your confused, no he is not 30 but we reuse candles around here.  I'm sure he would like to think he is still only 30.)

Of course the little guy had to have a hat too.

It was a an easy, cheap, and fun way to add to our simple birthday celebrations. The girls could make these on their own and it was an activity that kept them occupied for at least a little while.
