Birthdays On-Demand with Netflix

Did you know: three-quarters of parents in the US feel the pressure to be “party perfect” for their kids? I have been doing big elaborate birthday parties for my son. After so many years I am a pro at it. I don’t expect everyone to do this by any means. I have a creative spirit and this just gives me a personal outlet. I do want to support those parents who have more child, who might not be creative or who do not have the time to go all out for Birthdays. 

We are celebrating Birthdays On-Demand with Netflix this month!

I am a member of Netflix’s blogger StreamTeam. I did not receive compensation for this post, but Netflix has provided me with a membership and other bonuses for being part of the Stream Team. All opinions expressed are my own.

Since we are celebrating, we decided to bake a cake, in honor Birthdays on Demand. Creating a simple cake while suggesting fun Children programs you can watch.

Birthday Bash Suggestions: 

DreamWorks All Hail King Julien, Barbie, 

Beat Bugs, 

DreamWorks Dinotrux, 

Las Leyendas, 

LEGO Friends, 

LEGO Ninjago, 

Luna Petunia, 

 Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir, 

My Little Pony, 


Project Mc2, 

Skylanders Academy, 

DreamWorks Trollhunters

 Word Party

Do you feel the pressure to make their birthday perfect?

    We've not yet done a big birthday party for our kids, and I think this is the year we finally need to step up our game. I've got time to plan, but this is certainly something worth thinking about!

    My daughter is 19 months old and she loves to watch Peppa Pig, Little Baby Bum Learning Songs and Mother Goose Club (Episode 2 only). She loves all those shows on Netflix with songs ๐Ÿ™‚

    Havent done an elaborate birthday party yet for my kiddos. But I'm sure that day is coming soon, especially as my older one will be 4 next year and starting to get pretty dang excited with just the mention of anything birthday related.

    This is an awesome idea. I also do the big parties and honestly I am tired of it. My youngest has her 8th birthday next month and she is already pressuring me about what kind of party. I may need to try netflix

    That is such a cute and unique idea! I absolutely love Netflix. It has me so spoiled with binge watching that I can barely stand to watch series on regular television now.

    I don't have kids yet but planning really makes me stress and checking out what supplies in need and also when time is running out. But inspite of the stress, when setting up a successful party make me very happy.

    This looks like fun! I've not heard of this before but it sounds cool. The thing that stress me out when planning birthdays are food and decoration.
