We carry the globe around the sun to celebrate how much we have grown.
The focus is not on cakes with frosting but on how much we grow and learn each year. The children bring in photos that show them as a newborn, a one year old, a two year old, a three year old, etc. The Birthday Child carries the globe and walks around the "sun". After each walk, they share what they could do at that age. Then their classmates sing to them and give cards that they have made. They share what they admire about the child. Finally, we have mini-corn muffins as a special Birthday snack.
