What to Write in a 5th Birthday Card

Writing in a card for a kid's birthday is not a clear or simple task. Adults may tend to write a message which goes over the kid's head. Worse yet is when people choose not to write anything else in the card, leaving an empty spot with only a lonely name. Use the blank space to write something fun in a 5-year-old's card.

This is your place to find examples of 5th birthday messages for the special 5-year-old in your life. Whether you choose to inspire the young person, entertain with a joke, or amaze with a poem, examples of each are below. Model your message after one of these, or edit one to your taste.

  3. You only have 5 more years to use your fingers to count to your age.

  5. You are the youngest 5-year-old I know!
  6. No one can call you a little kid any more. You're 5 now!
  7. Just when I thought you were perfect at age 4, you turned 5 and got even more cool!
  8. Who gave you permission to grow up so fast? I can't believe you're 5 now.
  9. Now that you're 5, you're too old for toys. A 5 dollar bill is much more appropriate.

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!
