Birthday’s are special occasions no matter what. However, amid calls for social distancing, there is no denying that for spring babies, this year will be quite different. With this in mind, we are here to reassure you that there are still plenty of ways you or someone you love can still have a memorable day.
There is no need to skip the bash altogether. However, we do think that for all birthday boys and girls whose birthday falls during the Pandemic, that they should throw the biggest and best birthday bash ever, once things have returned back to normal.
In the meantime, here are 10 top ways you can celebrate your child’s birthday or help make someone’s else’s little monkey feel special whilst social distancing.
1- Virtual themed birthday party
A London based drama group could save the day! Choose from one of their many exciting party ideas at Magical Quests and host an online themed birthday party
2 – Group Happy Birthday singalong using Zoom or the app Houseparty
Set up a group meeting with zoom and get the guest of honour to sign in last as a little surprise, and sing Happy Birthday together!
3 – Host a Netflix Party!
What is it? It’s a google chrome extension you can download to watch Netflix movies and shows together at the same time. So simply download the extension, get all the kiddies together to watch a family film of the birthday child’s choice and provide the popcorn!
4 – Order or send a dessert
Why not have the birthday magic delivered straight to your front door? Order a cake or dessert from your local bakery or restaurant. This is a great way to support a local business too.
5 – At home karaoke contest
An excellent crowd starter which is perfect for all occasions, not just birthdays. Explore platforms like Luckyvoice to assist.
6 – Organise a kids gaming party
We don’t need to tell you kids love gaming. This is a fun and super easy for them to organise amongst themselves too, depending on their age. There may be a game they can sign into play as a tournament or get a group together and login to zoom to play at the same time.
7 – Indoor treasure hunt
Organise a treasure hunt throughout the house with a toy or treat at the final destination. You can even download clues here, making it even easier to set up.
8- Kids make the rules day
This could be both dangerous and tremendously fun for all the family.
9 – Sign up to the new Disney+ and have Disney movie marathon
Disney+ is an exciting new platform that brings families all around the best stories from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars AND National Geographic. The timing perhaps could not be better for unlimited family entertainment!
10- Host an Interactive Online Party
