Quarantined birthday: 10 fun ideas to celebrate
Having a child celebrating birthday during this quarantine period due to the Coronavirus emergency can be incredibly challenging.
This year it will not be possible to organize a full-fledged birthday party, full of friends and family of your little one since the new provisions put in place make it impossible to invite friends to your home.
After all, remember that the safety of your family is the most important thing. And besides, this does not mean that you cannot celebrate a birthday at home that is still fun for children.
We, therefore, collected some creative ideas to organize a memorable birthday party, even in isolation.
1. Plan a virtual birthday party with friends and family
Although we would desire to be able to celebrate with loved ones physically, you can call your child’s friends and family through FaceTime, Whatsapp, or Skype! You can get in touch with grandparents and friends to sing “Happy Birthday” and cut the cake!
2. Plan a garden party with the family
For example, you can install a tent in your home garden – weather permitting, of course! Or set up an indoor curtain in the living room to play together, watch a movie or cardboard, complete with popcorn, stories, and gifts!
3. Organize a virtual sleepover
With your smartphone or tablet, organize a video call between your child and a few friends for a virtual sleepover. Watch a movie all together, and you will make the evenings unique and fun.
4. Decorate the courtyard or garden
Decorate the garden with many creative ideas with colorful balloons, chalks, or DIY crafts, to make the child’s birthday special. Take photos and make videos of these moments.
5. Organize a flash mob from the balcony
To surprise your child, send messages to the neighborhood and organize a choreography with songs and dances from the balconies with which to surprise the birthday boy.
6. Spend an afternoon with Disney attractions
Thanks to YouTube, families can visit some of Disney’s most popular attractions right from the couch!
7. Plan a treasure hunt
Kids will have fun looking for little treasures around the house! Hide some small birthday presents and prepare clues for the children to find.
8. Plan a wellness day
Take all your face and body creams and make mini-massages to make your child’s birthday even more special. Some slices of cucumber can make a difference!
9. Make a special cake
If your child wants a classic birthday cake or a special dessert, surprise him or prepare a cake together!
10. Open them and read the greeting cards together
Ask relatives and friends to send the birthday boy a series of greeting cards, which you will then open one by one.
