This Birthday Balloon Door Surprise is a fun way to celebrate a kids’ birthday and start the day off with a bang! 

What kid doesn’t love balloons? We love celebrating birthdays with balloons and this super fun Birthday Balloon Door Surprise is no exception! It’s a delightful way to get your kids into a celebratory birthday moon right off the bat in the morning when they wake up! We did this recently for my daughter who just turned 13 and she loved it!

Why do we love this Birthday Balloon surprise?

  • It’s super simple to set up, you just need balloons, crepe paper and tape
  • You can color coordinate to any color theme your child likes! Rainbow would be amazing. We chose pink and gold as those are my daughter’s fave colors at the moment. 
  • The reaction once your child opens the door is priceless! Make sure you have a video or phone camera running to capture the excitement and surprise!
  • The whole rest of the family can get involved. My son and husband and I all took turns blowing up balloons and it gets the whole family participating in how to make the birthday kid feel extra special!

How can you make this birthday balloon idea extra special? 

We didn’t think of it this time around but in retrospect, you can fill a couple of one special ballon with something special that would fit like a rolled-up paper gift certificate or extra birthday money!

You can also find clear balloons with confetti that make the ballons extra special! 

How many balloons will you need per door?

Most doors in homes are standard sized, we blow up around 25-28. A good tip is to make a few smaller to be “filler balloons” you can tuck in between gaps so the door looks nice and full! 

You can also do IOU’s for special birthday treats like a trip to their favorite smoothie or ice cream place.

This Birthday Balloon Door Surprise is a fun way to celebrate a kids' birthday and start the day off with a bang! 

Materials

  • crepe paper
  • scissors
  • removable tape
  • balloons

Instructions

With your crepe paper unroll and starting from the boom of the door while it is closed, stretch it to the opposite end at the top. Tear off and tape each end with removable tape.

Continue to zig zag the crepe paper and make sure it's tight enough to hold the size of your balloons. Once you have enough srips taped down, you can gently start to insert the balloons underneath the crepe paper.

If your crepe paper is too loose, tighten and retape. If it's too tight, take it off and grab a new stripe and retape.

Most doors in homes are standard sized. We blew up around 25-28.
