Adorable Birthday Interview Printable for Kids from So Festive


If you want a simple way to keep track of all your child’s favorite things throughout the years, this kid’s 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 these yearly interview questions has become a favorite birthday tradition

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


Ready to make this become a favorite tradition in your family? 

Grab the printable Birthday Interview here!

For just a few dollars, you can buy once, and print as many times as you need year after year for all the children in your family! You also get: binder  cover sheet, birthday planner, and more! 


  • These birthday questions for preschoolers and kids make age 3  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.  


The birthday interview questions for kids are simple, but will also give a good snapshot of what your child is like at that specific time.  

I create this printable with good birthday questions that will help both them and me remember them at this age! 

Some of the birthday questions are: 

  • 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! 



So, you’ve done the interview, now what? Where do you store these?  Setting up a designated place for the completed birthday questions is the key to making this easy to keep up year after year. 

Create a Birthday Interview Book is a simple way to store the 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 question sheets 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?
