Celebrating a party during quarantine? It’s possible! Here’s some fun Quarantine Party Ideas when you’re on lockdown!
Who says you can’t celebrate major milestones in your child’s life because of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic? These Fun Quarantine Party Ideas are just what you need to make light of the situation.
While it’s important to prioritize safety above everything, it’s also essential (to our sanities!) to make sure that your child, and your entire family, still get a semblance of normal life during these difficult times. Throwing a safe corona party or quarantine themed birthday party in the safety of your own home is an excellent way to celebrate your kid’s or teen’s birthday while staying at home and practicing physical distancing.
A super mom with super ideas, Kylie Najjar made the most of the lockdown while keeping her family safe at home by staging a fun quarantine themed photoshoot and simple birthday party with cake and dancing.

She was even featured on the media for her creativity!
Keeping that in mind, there are so many ways for you and your kids to have a fun birthday celebration even if you had to cancel their birthday party with friends.

Just make sure to use yellow and black! Digital downloads are a great way to decorate without spending too much, and there are many customizable digital files around, some you also get for free.
Taking advantage of the internet and technology is also important when planning your kid’s quarantine birthday party. Apps like Zoom and Houseparty or other video conferencing tools allow your friends and family to join the fun even while in the safety of their own homes. You can also send out virtual invitations or e-vites to make everything feel more like a real party! Set up online gift registries on different shopping sites so that your little one can still get presents from friends and family. Reach out to friends and family in advance if you’re planning a birthday parade, so they can prepare homemade banners to greet your birthday boy or girl.
