The whole world has gone into self-isolation mode due to the pandemic COVID-19. As families are practicing social distancing, life has been put on hold and celebrations are being cancelled. If your kid’s birthday happens to fall during the lockdown, then they must be dealing with disappointment for not being able to celebrate with friends.
Just because we are not allowed to step out of home for a while doesn’t mean that kids can’t have a fun & memorable birthday celebration. We are sharing some awesome ideas for celebrating children’s birthday in lockdown and making it special.
Plan a house party
A surprise birthday party at home is a great idea to cheer up your child during such challenging times. You can decorate his room with colourful balloons and hide presents in the cupboard. Get all the family members on a conference call so that your kid feels happier and closer to them irrespective of the miles of distance. It is an excellent idea to set a happy tone for the entire day.
Create a personalised birthday wishes video
Ask friends and family to send small happy birthday videos. Combine all the videos into a film and play it for your child on the big screen. The personalised birthday wishes video will take your child by surprise and put a smile on his face.
Send your child on a scavenger hunt around the house. It truly boosts birthday mood, and your kid will have lots of fun while he seeks to gather the items on the list. Seeing the cheerful face of your kid will melt your heart.
You may not take your kid out for his birthday celebration, but you can guarantee him a fun-filled day with board games, card games, and video games. Also, it is an excellent activity to bond with your child and know more about his likes and passions.
Bake a cake
A birthday celebration is never complete without a cake-cutting ceremony. If you can’t order a cake for your kid’s birthday, then at least you can try and bake one at home. You can also involve your kid and bake a cake of his favourite flavour. You can recreate his favourite meal from his favourite place to eat.
Birthdays means celebration, good food, and lots of fun. Now that we all are stuck at home practising social distancing, a movie marathon is a great idea to make your child’s birthday fun and happening. Grab a bowl of popcorns. Relax on the couch and binge-watch your child’s favourite movies all day.
Share the hobby
What does your kid like to do in his free time? It can be anything- painting, dancing, making craft items or writing poems. Share your kid’s hobby for a day. It is a great way to connect with your child emotionally and show how much he means to you.
You can also surprise your child with birthday postcards decorated with heart-warming birthday quotes. It will make a sentimental gift that he can cherish for the years to come.
