Adorable Birthday Interview Printable for Kids from So Festive

A Simple Birthday Interview Birthday Tradition! 

If you want a simple way to keep track of all your child’s favorite things throughout the years, this birthday interview is for you! 

I created this adorable birthday interview printable when my oldest was 3 because I realized that I was never going to remember all the little details of his life unless I wrote them down. 

And now, doing this birthday interview each year has become a favorite birthday tradition! 

Especially when I hear funny answers like: “If I had a million dollars, I’d buy a wheelbarrow! ”  


Tips For Doing A Birthday Interview

  • Age 3 is a good year to start the interviews. 
  • Print a stack of birthday interviews at a time and then you’ll be ready year after year. 
  • Set aside about 10 minutes on the birthday or during the week to do the interview.
  • Place completed sheets in a sheet protector to store in a binder. 

What Kind of Questions Are Included? 

When designing this printable, I wanted the questions to be simple but also a good way to remember your child at that specific time. 

So there are questions like: 

  • What makes you happy?
  • What’s your favorite thing to do outside?
  • What’s your favorite color, holiday, food, etc.? 
  • Who are your friends? 

And one of my favorite parts is the place for their signature at the bottom! 


How To Store The Birthday Interviews 

So, you’ve done the interview, now what? Where do you store these?  

I have a very simple solution to keeping track of all the birthday interviews. 

My children each have a 2-inch white binder filled with Page protectors .

This is where any special paper keepsakes are saved, including birthday interviews. 

In fact, the birthday interviews become yearly tabs in a way. Once the new interview is filled out, I slip it into a page protector and then put in their binder. Then any favorite school work or special items within that year follow. 




I hope you enjoy this birthday tradition as much as we do! Have so much fun with it!

Hi there, I absolutely love the birthday interview printable and I hope to use it for my daughters upcoming birthday in October, but when I try and use it, the word “birthday” on top doesn’t print! What am I doing wrong?? Please help.

I’m sorry you are having trouble! I double checked the file and it printed correctly for me. The only thing I can think is that since it’s the color portion of the printable, maybe it has something to do with your printer?
