How to pick 6th birthday wishes

6th Birthday Wishes - Birthday Messages for 6 Year Olds

To choose the right 6th birthday messages, you need to keep in mind that most 6 year olds would rather rip open their gifts than read a birthday message. The only way to distract 6 year olds long enough for them to read the 6th birthday wishes you've chosen is to concentrate on what's important to them.

To give you some benchmarks for choosing 6th birthday messages, I did a little research and discovered a few social and emotional milestones for 6 year olds that could have an impact on your choice. According to Developmental milestones: Your 6-year-old child, your typical 6 year old...

  • "is growing more independent, yet feels less secure," so a sentimental birthday message that praises one of his/her qualities could make him or her feel special
  • "craves affection from grownups," so your birthday wish can be more on the "sentimental" or "happy" side with enough heartfelt words could be just what this little tyke needs
  • "needs to win and may change rules to suit herself/himself," so birthday greetings that make the birthday boy or girl feel like a winner or a champion (or both) will likely be the best choice
  • "may be hurt by criticism, blame or punishment," so you may want to avoid birthday messages that poke fun at the birthday boy or girl (birthday verses that are generous with praise should be music to his/her ears)
  • "is increasingly aware that others have may have different feelings," so birthday messages with a "kindness" factor may interest the birthday tyke (and will be appreciated by his or her parents)

In other words, whatever you select as a 6th birthday wish needs to make the 6-year-old birthday girl or boy feel special enough to curb his or her natural instinct to discard the birthday message and rip open his or her birthday gifts. This is not an easy feat but it's definitely easier to achieve with the 6th birthday wishes just below.

Six year olds can really rock 'n' roll but you rock more than any 6 year old I know! Hope you rock out your 6th birthday!

Here are 6 kisses, 6 hugs, 6 tickles, 6 smiles, 6 cuddles and 6 cheers to make sure you have a fun 6th birthday!

Your average 6-year-old birthday boy or girl will likely enjoy the birthday wish below because it contains two important elements: 

  1. This 6th birthday message contains praise for the birthday boy or girl, an important element of 6th birthday wishes. Because your typical 6 year old is beginning to care about what others think about him or her, genuine praise can work wonders.
  2. This birthday greeting is playful. Generally, 6 years olds have the intelligence to grasp (and appreciate) a simple play on words. Adding the word "six" to words that convey a certain message is just a clever way of engaging the little tyke.

On your birthday, something six-citing will happen. You become a six-tastic six-year-old. Have a six-tremely six-sational 6th birthday.
