May 22, 2020

Planning your kid’s birthday party can prove to be a cumbersome task. You want to make sure your kid’s birthday is really special, after all - childhood birthdays can often be unforgettable. But given the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, it can prove difficult to make sure their special day is celebrated with all their friends and family. Luckily, there are ways to celebrate with their loved ones, and that they are able to wish your child a happy birthday while still maintaining social distancing rules. 


In today’s blog we’ll discuss 3 ways to throw an unforgettable kid’s birthday party while maintaining social distancing rules. Read on for more!


Set Expectations 

While oftentimes, planning your kid’s birthday party can be quite the undertaking, it can also be exciting for everyone involved. Under regular circumstances they would be able to celebrate it with their friends and family in-person. However, we must adhere to government restrictions on non-essential gatherings to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Before you get planning, it’s important to have a conversation with your child about expectations. Disappointment is a natural reaction, but taking the angle that it’s to keep friends and family safe and healthy can help them understand.


Virtual Birthday with Loved Ones

Just because your child can’t celebrate with their loved ones in person, doesn’t mean they can’t celebrate with them at all. Setting up a virtual meeting with their friends and family can still make them feel loved and celebrated on their special day. Asking your virtual party guests to make a card or a sign to show can also add to the fun. 


Go Big with Decorations

Finally, it’s important to go big when it comes to decorations. Emphasize the parts of your kid's birthday party that you can plan for. Ask your child what theme they would like their birthday party to be, and plan out what decorations you’ll want to include together. You might even consider doing DIY arts and crafts decorations. This will keep them busy at home, while also drawing excitement in anticipation for their special day.
