Whether it’s a 40th, 50th or 60th birthday, these Over the Hill printables are the perfect way to celebrate your loved one’s special day in a light-hearted way. You’ll have everyone in stitches by the end. Check it out.
I got the idea for these printables when my husband was about to turn 40 years old. It’s definitely a milestone age but it’s hard to not feel old at the same time. So, I figured, why not make the most of it and embrace this mid-life event with some tongue-in-cheek laughter? Here’s how you can do it yourself.
Download and print your Over the Hill printables
You can download a PDF of these printables by clicking on the link below. I just emailed the file to my local copy store. I printed them in full color on cardstock so they would be nice and sturdy.
Cut out and assemble
Now for the fun part. Once you get your PDFs printed, cut out all of the signs of various sizes. Some of these printables can be decorations for a cake and the rest you can hang up as decoration for your birthday party. Oh yeah, you’ll also need the following items:
- Birthday cake
- Popsicle sticks
- Birthday candles
You can print a couple copies of the printable that says, “Warning Senior Citizen Crossing” and then hang it up in a line on the wall, connecting the pieces kind of like caution tape. I also taped popsicle sticks to the backs of all the smaller signs and then stuck them strategically in the birthday cake. It turned out so cute.
Add some additional Over the Hill goodies
There are tons of fun items that you can buy online to go along with your Over the Hill birthday party. Here’s just a few of my favorites:
- Memory mints for senior moments
- Inflatable walker
- Old man cane with accessories
- Emergency diaper kit
Instead of a real cake, you can also make your own diaper cake. This just adds to the hilarity. Hopefully the birthday boy or girl will be a good sport about it. I know my husband just ate it up. He thought it was hilarious.
