When it comes down to birthdays, we’re done with the super stressful kids birthday parties. Instead, we have a tradition of shopping at the toy store, heading to the arcade, and eating at Red Lobster. Then we come home for cake, but the singing can get a little bit awkward when it’s just a family of 3.
Netflix has a super fun new feature just for your kids’ birthdays that I wish we had back in July. Just visit Netflix.com/birthdays and you’ll find videos with your child’s favorite characters singing happy birthday. Included are characters from shows like, Jim Henson’s Word Party, Barbie, LEGO Friends, Dinotrux, Miraculous, Luna Petunia, Skylanders Academy, LEGO Ninjago, All Hail King Julien, Project MC2. My Little Pony, Beat Bugs, Legend Quest, Pokemon, and Trollhunters.
This works similar to the New Years Eve countdowns, which we absolutely loved. The New Years Eve Countdowns gives you the option to countdown with the kids whenever you want, so I think we had her stay up until “midnight” last year, but it was really only 9 PM. I think this year she might make it to 10 PM before crashing.
We’re huge fans of Trollhunters and can’t wait for season 2!!
We celebrated the launch with our own Netflix cake. Aliceana helped me bake it and she definitely decorated it with as many sprinkles as she could. When AJ came home she yelled, “Happy Netflix day dad!” Why don’t we have a National Netflix day yet? Probably because we already have dates with a weekly Netflix day and night, I call Fridays Christmas on Netflix, because there’s always something new to watch.
