We have a sweet little 2nd grader with a birthday today and it made me think that you all might want to see my birthday box. We don't do a ton for birthdays in 2nd grade...in fact we have our treat during lunch. So-I ususally try to do something special in the classroom. For starters we have a birthday seat cover with little cupcakes all over it. It reads Happy Birthday! The birthday kiddo also gets their name on a big cupcake on the classroom door.
I also have a "Birthday Box" where I have tons of fun birthday prizes like pencils, punching balloons, bookmarks, and stickers. I chose a sturdy gift box covered in birthday cupcakes for the container. We all love feeling special on our birthdays and these little things sure help out a ton! Sorry could not get the picture to turn:)
