Doing this birthday interview with your kids each year will help you keep track of all their favorite things.
BIRTHDAY INTERVIEW: A FAVORITE 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 MAKING THIS BIRTHDAY TRADITION EASY
- Age 3 is a good year to start the interviews. You want your kids to be old enough that they can answer questions.
- 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 your completed interviews in a sheet protector and then in a binder to store them.
BIRTHDAY INTERVIEW QUESTIONS
The birthday interview questions are simple, but will also give a good snapshot of what your child is like at that specific time.
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?
- What do you like to learn about?
- What do you want to be when you grow up?
And one of my favorite parts is the place for their signature at the bottom!
BEST WAY TO STORE BIRTHDAY INTERVIEWS
So, you’ve done the interview, now what? Where do you store these? Setting up a designated place for the completed birthday interviews is the key to making this easy.
I have a very simple solution to keeping track of all the birthday interviews.
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.
