A Yearly Birthday Questionnaire

a great birthday tradition to start with kids

I love the idea of interviewing kidsโ€”they often say the funniest things! I think it’s even sweeter to do it each year around their birthday, taking note of a few of that year’s favourite things (book, movie, breakfast food), not to mention important thoughts on friends, food, and family vacations.

While I didn’t start this yearly birthday keepsake with my older boys, I fully intend on doing it with my youngest son. I think sometime around age three is a good place to start, although you can certainly begin the tradition whenever it suits you. If you keep a baby book on hand, or a box where you place special mementos, print off the questionnaire, ask the questions, attach a current photo of your child and put it away until the following year when you repeat the activity and read through the previous year’s answers (you will love themโ€”I promise).

Here is a list of possible questions for your questionnaire, but feel free to get creative and include a few of your own, if desired.
