Holiday and Birthday Celebration Ideas

My children love holiday and birthday celebrations and want to be sure to share ideas with you that don't break the bank and are doable no matter who you are and what struggles your children have.

We do our best to make holidays special and celebrate them in a way that everyone can handle them.  Holidays and birthdays combined with special needs can be a bit tricky.

We've found over the years that celebrating each and every special occasion that we can, brings joy to us and to our kids, breaking up the monotony of day to day life. Holidays are also a great way to introduce schedule changes in a pleasant and fun way.

Here you will find all of our posts dedicated to holiday and birthday traditions, parties, and celebrations.  Posts are organized by holiday.  If you're in need of holiday and birthday inspiration you're in the right place!
