Even though most kids are back in school, with some being home-schooled ― parties and gatherings with friends outside of your immediate household are still a no-no. This means celebrating a birthday becomes a fun family affair!
With everyone pitching in, here's how ― as a family, you can make this day a special one for the birthday child.
Collect Special Birthday Messages
Ask friends and family members to make a special birthday wish by mailing cards ahead or sending a recorded video message.
Schedule ZOOM or video call dates with as many classmates, family and friends as you can.
Break out the Game boards. They are loads of family fun and will provide tons of entertainment. Birthday child picks the games.
Plan an Elaborate Scavenger Hunt in your House
Hide fun treats and little gifts for the birthday boy or girl to find. Don't forget to make a treasure map.
Have a Family Slumber Party
Set it up indoors! Kids love a living room campsite. Read bedtime stories together. Eat snacks in bed.
Have a YES Day
Think of some of the times your child has asked for something and the answer was no. Ice cream for breakfast? YES!
Arrange a Drive-By Car Parade
Ask friends and family to drive by your house at a specific time. Have them wave streamers and signs outside the car to make it fun and interactive!
Rent Fun Lawn Signs
This will make your child's day super special. Superior Events in Toronto rents fun signs to mark important milestones. More
Relax on the couch and watch the birthday child’s favourite movie picks.
Bake Treats Together
Bake together and turn it into a kitchen party. Play upbeat music, do video chats with family, and make it special. Get the entire family involved.
Have a Family Spa Day
Everyone gets pampered. Plan a day of at-home manicures, pedicures, facial masks and hair styling.
Order take-out from your child's favourite restaurant for a relaxing stress-free meal everyone can enjoy!
