Kids surprise dad with cellophane balloons, egg cake for birthday

MANILA, Philippines – They didn’t have money to buy their dad real balloons or a real cake, but some kids in Batangas City did their best to surprise him on his birthday. They made cellophane balloons and a cake made of eggs. The sweet gesture has gone viral, with netizens praising these little ones for being so thoughtful.

In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, the kids’ neighbor Melody Silang shared some photos of the thoughtful surprise these kids prepared for their dad.

According to Melody, the kids come from a poor family and didn’t have enough money to prepare a real feast for their dad’s birthday. But they still decided to surprise their dad. They went the extra mile to prepare the balloons that are actually just made of cheap cellophane.

The kids happily made the balloons and hung these on a rope strung across their hut. To made the balloons look more realistic, these loving kids even painted “Happy Birthday Papa” on some of the cellophanes before hanging these up.
