1st birthday poems are great to use on your birthday invitations and first birthday cards, your little one may not understand the poem now but years later they will love the idea that a poem was written just for them.
Although the advent of internet has afforded us with online birthday cards and interactive cards, nothing beats the essence of a beautifully crafted and worded first birthday card. The poem can be funny or sentimental. It can be short or long. You can buy a blank card and write the poem yourself. Just a few heart-felt sentences will be fine. What is important is that you are able to convey your first birthday wish to your child.
There are a variety of first birthday cards available at stationery shops. Although giving a birthday card to a one-year old is certainly not an option for most of your guests, you can somehow persuade them to make one during the birthday party. An easy way to go about this is to buy ready-made first birthday cards. You also have the option of printing cards with your baby’s picture on it.
Make the birthday-card-poem-writing event a birthday fun activity. If you have very young guests maybe their moms or dads can do the actual first birthday poem writing. The young guests could perhaps help in doing artwork on the cards. Prepare crayons, colorful beads, paper flowers and leaves for decorating the card. For older kids, give them some ready-made poems that they could copy and modify. Here are some 1st birthday poems that you could use as samples.
A nice kind of day
for treats and lots of fun.
From the time you get up
Till you go Nighty night
Hope your first Birthday
Is a special delight.
You’re as cute as a bug
So precious to hug
A darling child
who’s nice to be near.
So.. hope turning one
Is happy and fun
And takes you along
To a second great year
Because today’s your 1st Birthday
And you’re so special too,
Everything that’s happy,
Is being wished for you.
Have a lovely day
Today is your first birthday oh what joy!
It’s been a year of love, laughter and fun
I wish you goodwill, happiness and health
May you have many more birthdays this I pray.
