What do you write in a kids birthday card?

My girls are going to a birthday party, this is our first time being invited to a children's birthday party. I got both kids a card, they are both turning 2 but what do you write in it for a 2yr old and who do you put that it is from? Do you put from "your kids names" or do you put its from the whole family?

  • For kids that young, I'd just write "Happy Birthday" and sign it from your kid (maybe "and family"?), since that's who they know. Unless it's a family friend, then sign it from the whole family.

  • I think it depends on how close you are to the family. Hope you have a great birthday, Love so and so
    or So glad we got to celebrate with you and your family! From Mr and Mrs. Anon.

  • if its just a friend from school/daycare or another event happy bday from my kids, if its a close family friend than i write we love you happy birthday from and then i sign each of our names. but they know the kids not you, so that is who the gifts are coming from in their eyes.

  • Since it was your daughters who were invited and will be presenting the gifts, have them sign the cards with whatever they want.

  • I would just write: Happy Birthday!! Hope you have an awesome day or something like that and sign my daughters name. Have fun!!

  • I would have my kids sign the cards but they can't write yet, they are only 2 1/2yrs and 20mo. And no, we aren't really close to the family.
