WELCOME TO THE PARTY ROOM!
Your Compassion child’s birthday is coming up. Well, it is sometime in the next 12 months, anyway! Here are some free printable paper gifts you may like to check out, so you can say ‘Happy Birthday to yo-ou’ with style!
Have you ever thought of having a birthday party in honour of your Compassion child? I haven’t done it (yet), but it sounds like fun. Children and grandchildren would get right into it too! Any excuse for a bonus birthday party! Maybe we should all get together and make it one giant birthday party for everyone’s Compassion kids. You know, send out the invites; decorate (outdoors is best); play the games; blow up the balloons (don’t forget the water fights!); blow out the candles on the cake; then send your child the pics!
