Congratulations! Your baby has turned 1! It’s been a year already and your baby has crawled out of your arms and is getting ready to walk. The first birthday of a baby is a really special occasion for the parents and calls for a celebration. If you are looking for birthday ideas for your child, you've come to the right place.
Although many people throw a huge party to share their joy, many people are of the opinion that the child is not going to remember any of this. At lavish parties, kids are dressed up in very uncomfortable clothing and they are greeted by so many people, who they don’t remember or know.

Kids do not enjoy this party at all and I’m sure if you show them pics of this celebration, years later, they’d be even more unhappy to see their crying pics. One should do something that kids really enjoy since it is their day and it should be spent with people who they love!
5 Amazing Birthday Ideas For Your Child
#1. A Small Gathering
Keep it a small gathering - only family members and maybe a few close friends. These should be the people your baby is most friendly with. With familiar faces around, the baby would be happy and enjoy to the fullest. This is what Saif and Kareena
did on their son, Taimur’s first birthday. The green eyed cutest bollywood baby’s birthday was celebrated amongst close family members - massi Karishma, cousins - Kiaan and Samaira, dadi Sharmila Tagore, nani Babita and nanu Randhir Kapoor.

#3. Favorite Activity
Plan an activity or a little outing for the child to make the most of it. If your child likes painting, make him/her go wild painting and messing up his/her clothes. There should be no stopping and your baby should have lots of fun doing what he/she really likes. Kareena and Saif took Taimur for a tractor ride and a horse ride and he sure, had a great time riding with his favorite people.
