Parents are always searching for creative and fun ways in which to make their child's birthday party the most memorable.  Thanks to a popular show, PBS KIDS Sprout, parents are given the best advice from various experts on how to do just that.

"Family rituals, celebrations and traditions are very important in a child's life," said Dr. Renee Cherow-O'Leary, a professor at Columbia University's Teachers College and president of the Education for the 21st Century consulting firm. "Singing songs such as 'Happy Birthday,' playing unique games and eating festive foods heighten these 'life cycle events' and create treasured memories."

The newly expanded program is part of the year-old PBS KIDS Sprout network, which is the first and only 24-hour, on-air, on-demand and online service devoted to preschoolers, their parents and caregivers.
