measuring birthdays with cars: birthday traditions

Pin It
Bear fell in love with Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars when he was almost three years old.  so for his 3 year old birthday, i dug through bins and hangers in several stores to find 3 vehicles with the number 3 on them.  he got these as a present.  i did the same thing for his 4th birthday.  once i decided that this would be a fun birthday tradition to carry on, i searched for one #1 and 2 #2 vehicles.
to give him these cars, i hide them.  Bear gets such a kick out of looking for them.  i figure a tradition like this can be carried on for about the next 4-6 years.  the only thing is that as he gets older, i will have to find more cars.  that'll mean some pre-planning for me to have time to search and get them all. 

What are some birthday traditions in your house?

What a cute idea! Our main birthday tradition so far is that the kids always get two gifts: one that is just for them and one to share with siblings.
