With so much of our days being go, go, go, and content focused, it is often difficult to celebrate birthdays which is such a joyous occasion for our students. I know it's also often hard to plan, implement, and carry out this parties so I often would have monthly parties that celebrated everyone in the class who had a birthday that fell within that month.
In order to make these parties a success, I would ask all the parents to pitch in with donations and time. At first, I would end up with 10 bags of chips and 10 bottles of soda which got old pretty quickly. I started to use this template which allowed me to differentiate the treats that we received which often made the parties last much longer and kids much happier :)
The template has two notices per pages and will require you to assign the donations to ensure your party has a good mix. Feel free to cross our and change any of the treats that you feel will better fit your class! Students will return their slip with the parents notifying if they can donate their treat and you can plan for expected numbers.
Best wishes and happy birthday!
