    I have a July birthday and always felt left out when other kids got to celebrate during the school year, so in my room we do un-birthdays (six months from your real summer birthday.) We work on calendar skills to find out everyone´s un-birthday and the kids who celebrate summer birthdays get really excited when I tell them they get to celebrate their un-birthdays! My parents get so excited by this, too. Many even send cupcakes or snacks that day because it´s such a novelty for their child. As for birthdays (and un-birthdays), I give the child 50 cents (the cost of ice cream in the school cafeteria.) If their parents send cake, etc we eat that, too. I also decorate the morning message with drawn stars, streamers, confetti, or pictures of something I know the child loves. It makes the day different.
