I still remember that time of the childhood when my birthday used to be around the corner and I used to indulge in extensive day-dreaming. Oh god, those were the blissful days!
And one thing which I noticed lately is that, this excitement of celebrating birthday in an extravagant manner is decreasing exponentially with every passing year. Sad. But it happens as one grows old.
Well, never mind, here I list few whimsical birthday party ideas which my parents executed during my birthdays to make it a one big day!

Art and Craft:
Mothers, I know you’re always looking for an excuse to show-off your girly side and what better way than with a fabulous art and craft party.
-For this, we need materials which should be as simple as it can be so that the children get space to decorate them and show their creativity with them. For e.g.: painting and designing a plain pot or a vase.
-You can also provide kids with origami papers and give them the opportunity to show their crafting skills.
At the end of both the sessions, award the winners with candies or maybe with crayons set.

- AGE GROUP: for adolescents and teenager
Make a circle of chairs with the backs of chairs towards inside of the circle. There should be one less chair than the number of players playing the game like traditional musical chairs. As the music starts, everyone will start moving around the circle. As the music stops, everyone will sit but there will be one player left standing. As per the normal game that person is OUT of the game. But here, that player is not OUT but will decide who is Out. He will either choose any month of the year or any date of the month. Whoever is born either in that particular month or on that particular date is OUT of the game.
For eg. if he says August all the players born in the month of August are Out or if he says 15th all the players born on 15th are Out. Remove same number of chairs as per the number of players are. Out and can start the music again.
