Whether at school or at home, Birthday Activity Pages are a great way to make memories of the year that has passed by and celebrate your child’s academic progress. Let me help you make their day special. Bake a cake, decorate a bit, call their friends and then print these cute Happy Birthday Activity Pages for some learning fun!
Birthdays are that time when you want your child to have a great day but … only if they let you!
My children love busy books. I’ve been printing fun activities for my children to learn as they play ever since they were mere toddlers. Just print, insert in a sheet protector file, offer some dry erase markers and see the magic happen! They will write, erase, write and give you some time to peacefully get some work done.
This pretty printable pack is perfect for ages 3-6 years olds. It is a fun way to grab your children’s attention and get them excited about learning. In fact, they won’t even know they are learning unless you tell them. Help your child practice their ABCs, numbers, shapes, patterns and more all the while celebrating their birthday.
Even when it is not their birthday, it is fun to give them an ‘Everyday is my Birthday’ activity book.
What is included in the Birthday Party Activity Pack
The Birthday Party Pack contains 15 pages:
- What Comes Next- a pattern matching game. Children follow a pattern and then find a picture from the next page to cut and paste.
- Count and Write – number practice. Counting the items and writing the correct number.
- I Spy – counting and identify different shapes and items.
- 3 pages of scissor practice for some hand eye coordination. Cut along the line till you reach the object.
- Say it Dot it Alphabet game: Practice the ABCs by saying a letter then dotting it with a marker or cross it out with a pencil.
- Find similar objects – identify similar and different pictures.
- Trace along the lines. 3 pages with 3 different levels of tracing fun.
- Write your story: writing practice. Help your kindergartener write their birthday story.
- Make your own puzzle. A picture puzzle to cut out and arrange.
- Labels: As a bonus, I have included some labels that can be used on books or as gift tags for presents.
- Matching Memory Game. Print these on card-stock to make play cards.
These printable pages are in PDF format. Just print and add to an activity folder either as is or in a sheet protector.
Perfect for taking along on road trips or vacations or even at home for some quiet learning time. Just place each sheet in a plastic protector and give them a dry erase marker. Keeps child occupied while you are busy.
Material Needed for Birthday Activity Pages
- Paper (A4 size printer paper)
- Laminating Pouches or plastic protector file (like these)
- Pencils (if you are not laminating)
- Dot Markers
- Dry erase markers (if you are laminating or using a file)
- Paper clips or colored clothes pin
Preparing the Activities
The easiest way is to print it on A4 size copy paper and hand it to your child but there are more ways to use it. You can buy a low cost folder and some sheet protectors. Place the sheets in the protector and file it into the folder. Give your child a dry erase marker so they can do over and over again.
You can also choose to print in “booklet’ format while printing. This will reduce the size of the page to have two pages on one page. You can staple it to make a book. Kids love booklets of their own. These are perfect for carrying on road trips or flights. For this make sure you select ‘Booklet format’ while printing.
The puzzle page can be printed and laminated before cutting so you can easily make a busy bag out of it. You can store this in a zipper bag the way we do.
How to use the Happy Birthday Printable Activities
The instructions to use the sheets is included on each page of the pack but to help you get an idea on how we used it, let me share some of them.
WHAT COMES NEXT ACTIVITY
This activity has two pages. Print out the first sheet and insert in protector sheet. The second page needs to be cut to separate the cards. You can print and cut them out to present as it is, or laminate the sheets and cut out to create the cards.
If you offer the sheets in a folder, kids can glue the cards on or use clothes pin or paper clips to match the right card in the activity on the laminated sheets.
SAY IT DOT IT ACTIVITY
Print the pages and insert in plastic protector or laminate so the kids can use over and over with a dry erase or dot marker.
BIRTHDAY THEMED COUNTING, WRITING AND TRACING WORKSHEETS
Most of the worksheets can be used in a folder. Just print and insert in a plastic folder and offer a dry erase marker. You can also use directly with a pencil for one time use.
PRINTABLE BIRTHDAY PUZZLE & MEMORY MATCHING GAME
There are two ways to make these games. You can either print on card stock and cut it up or you can print on ordinary paper and laminate it before cutting. They are excellent to be made into busy bags and can be used over and over again.
We use zipper bags to store these simple puzzles.
BIRTHDAY LABELS OR STICKERS
The pack contains a sheet of labels that you can print on self adhesive paper or card stock to make into either stickers or gift tags.

Printing Instructions and FAQ:
Since iPads, tablets and phones generally don’t display the PDF same like a computer, printing is recommended from a computer. Also printer settings are not fully displayed on handheld devices so make sure to check these from a desktop or laptop.
Please note that you need Adobe Reader to view or print this products. You can download a free version Adobe reader from here.
Due to high resolution and colored images, printing may be slow depending on your printer model and network connection. If you find that your printer is taking too long to print, simply print a few pages at a time. Generally, this solves the problem.
Also, make sure you check the ‘Print as image’ option before printing. (The option is available in the ‘Advanced’ settings of print preferences in Adobe Reader.)
Hope these tips help.
