Excitement for birthdays is present in their glistening eyes way before from the date.

Embellish the spot
Try not to avoid this; indeed, go overboard from ones! Decorate the entryway for your birthday boy or girl so that they wake up to a fun surprise. Pick a favorite theme of your kid and go for it. It can be Star Wars, Harry Potter, Barbie, and that’s just the beginning! Ensure the backdrop of your virtual party leaves your kid and guests in awe.
Couldn’t think of something exciting? No worries! We are here. Your theme could be entirely virtual as well. Want to make it funky? Select something silly like crazy hats, superheroes, or how about a virtual fancy dress party? And if that is still too much, then ask the participants to set the backdrops of their choice.
Escape to the wonderland!
A novel concept that might really get the kids off your hands for a bit or even take you to an immersive trip yourself is, escape rooms. Now, they might sound a bit advanced level of gaming for a bunch of kids, but no! There are myriads of escape rooms that are specifically targeted towards kids or are inclusive of all ages. A themed room with an exciting storyline, where you get to be a character within the story and help solve the mystery through your wit sound like an exact adventure that will add more grandeur to the virtual party! Not will you only stimulate their brain cells but also have a unique birthday set up for the rest of the guests.
To make this crop up, one just needs to look out for the ultimate suitable escape room for your crowd and connect with the company via their website to reserve an unforgettable virtual escape experience.
Hire an entertainer surprisingly
We have established so far that staying at home does not mean that you can’t have any fun! Hire talent that will please the kids and can perform via video— a puppeteer, a magician whoever fits their taste the best! Since kids love creative activities and getting messy, a class where they can learn to cook or paint and play around will work like a charm as well.
Add some games to make more fun
Games can do wonders too! There are loads of fun games that one can play via video chat. Pictionary, charades, and even Taboo are all games you can easily play virtually. If you’re playing Pictionary, all the guests will need is paper and a marker! Or you can use the zoom “whiteboard” feature to draw some horrendous but fun clues! In case you have a teenager, they can play some Jackbox games, Ludo, Racing games, or any other online games of their choice. A fun competition for a gift card or a special prize will make it more entertaining!
Virtual movie-cum-birthday party
Playing board games and cards might be too old school for your teens. They might just want to have a chill and fun time with their buddies. On the off chance, you can host a Netflix Party, where they can tittle-tattle and watch the celebrant’s favorite movie together on a video call. This can also be a great way to get younger kids if you want to get them busy and relax. Their favorite cartoon or animated movies will work the best!
We just can’t let the magic and celebration of birthdays die due to the pandemic. So, buckle up and create a stunning virtual party that will make your kids be proud of you. Let’s make it an amazing memory they’ll remember and cherish for their entire life!
