Writing in a card for a kid's birthday is not always a simple task. Adults tend to write messages that go over the kids' heads. You can't just leave the inside of a card blank, though. Use the blank space to write something fun in a 5-year-old's card.

Use this page as a resource. Here are some examples of 5th birthday messages for the special 5-year-old in your life. Whether you choose to inspire the young person, entertain them with a joke, or amaze with a poem, your handwritten message will mean a lot to them and their parents. Model your message after one of these, or combine and edit them to your taste.

5th Birthday Poems

Just Be You

Now you're five
There's much to do!
Dance and jive
Tie a shoe
Most of all
Just be you!

Everyone Knows

Five is a hand full of fingers
Five is a foot full of toes
Five is your age today
Which everyone knows!

Five Is Big

Five is big
Five is fun
Now my silly poem is done!

Five Big Hugs

Five big hugs
Five big kisses
I'll make sure
Not one of them misses!

Picture-Perfect You

Five fingers are perfect
Five toes are perfect, too
None of them are as perfect
As picture-perfect you!
