Making Birthday Gifts Fun
It was recently Lee’s 16th birthday and we are whisking him off to Barcelona for a tour of the stadium in a way to give him a 16th birthday to remember, not only that but to also share in his interests too which is football. Seeing as we are not booked to fly out just yet as we are still awaiting on passports to be returned back to us as they expired we thought about making birthday gifts fun this year to help make the birthday excitement last a little longer for him.
This year Lee had to earn his birthday gift, not in a horrible way, but in a fun way, doing what Lee does best, he had to play football.
We have a game which is like chess and football in one ( review to follow ) and Lee has to score a goal to then move onto claim a prize.
The prize then being a letter, once all letters have been collected it will then spell out where we are going – Barcelona!
Once Lee had all the letters he then had to spell out what it is meant to say.
This game mixed with our way of giving Lee his birthday gift was a way of making birthday gifts fun. It was also great family fun along with lots of laughter. We all took turns playing Lee at this football game, Lee thought this was great football fun.
Once Lee had eventually had all the cards and letters needed it took him a while to put them all in the correct order. It was a great thinking game for him too, but a much better way to un-wrap a birthday gift.
This was a fantastic way of making birthday gifts fun, Lee now 16 thought it was a great way to receive his main birthday gift. He really enjoyed playing a football game for prizes and he won the match 12-3 so he was over the moon and it was a great birthday all round for him.
