The usual go-to children’s party options of soft play or the local village hall may be out of the question at the moment but that doesn’t mean celebrations are cancelled! We’ve got some great ideas on how to host a super fun party at home…
Don’t forget the cake
A birthday isn’t complete without some sweet treats and Cupcake Jemma has made sure the centre piece of the party is a piece of cake! From fluffy cupcakes to New York style cookies, you can order ‘Bake at Home Kits’ (and candles!) direct to your door.
Captain Fantastic to the rescue
Children’s party and entertainment company Captain Fantastic has gone virtual and created online parties to keep all ages entertained. All that’s required is a phone, tablet or laptop and then you can leave the hard work to their professional entertainers, “Whether you have a pretty princess, a wanna-be superhero, a budding scientist, little pirate or a child that’s a little too cool for school, we’ve got the online party for you”.
Whether you make your own or order bits online then set the party scene with decorations aplenty. Start by deciding on a theme- under the sea? Princess? Dinosaurs? Safari? Pirates? Or how about hosting your own at-home festival? Start by setting up a tepee or make-shift tent in the living room or garden, create wristbands for entry and get some hot dogs on the go! To complete the look, a homemade flower crown and a pair of wellies are a must.
A virtual get together
Why not host a big virtual party with family and friends via a video call online? How about virtual rhyme time with playgroup friends or for older children set up a birthday quiz or bingo game. Don’t forget to tell virtual attendees the chosen party theme in advance so that they can get on board with fancy dress and decorations too.
Have you hosted an isolation birthday party for your little one? We would love to hear how you made the day extra special.
