Celebrating your child’s birthday during quarantine, without the luxury of having friends over, might seem like a huge bummer, but here are some tips to make their day special, no matter what:
#1 – Video Chat with Characters
Characters love being invited to birthday parties and have been feeling quite left out since the pandemic hit. Why not invite your child’s favourite character for a virtual tea party or performance? You could do one-on-one or on a group call with friends. Pre-recorded personalized videos are also always an option when trying to make a quarantine birthday special.
#2 – Virtual Caricatures
Caricature artists don’t need to be present to draw a beautiful rendition of you and your family. They can easily video chat in, draw everyone, and either mail or send a digital copy of your drawing.
#3 – Drive-by Circus
A lot of people are opting for drive-by birthday parties, so why not invite some circus performers to roll, hand-walk, or hula-hoop past? There’s a diverse community of circus entertainers waiting for their next chance to dazzle.
#4 – Social distance sing-along with a princess
If your child loves to move around, why not invite their favourite princess to host a sing and dance along in your driveway? Social distance rules would be highly enforced to ensure everyone’s wellbeing.
#5 – Virtual Puppet Shows
Puppet shows are fun and can be personalized. Though puppeteers love visiting your home and doing their shows in person, they can easily stream into your living room live to keep everyone safe.
