A virtual birthday party may not have been what you envisioned for your toddler this year.

You may be wondering how to pull off this type of event while still making it special and unique.  This is doable!  And we are here to help! 

 You can also have virtual parties when you are off traveling the world with your little one.

Here are our ideas on pulling off a unique and Pinterest worthy virtually birthday party for your toddler.

Choose a fun theme.  A good theme is essential to a Pinterest worthy virtual birthday party.  Choose one where you can make sure everyone can get behind.  When you host your virtual meeting you can make sure that the background has the same theme.  Include the cake in that theme as well.  An example of this would be a mermaid birthday party.  You can decorate with fun blue and aqua balloons while your little one is in their fun mermaid shirt with their mermaid birthday cake.

Send celebration boxes to your guests.  A fun way to celebrate your little one is to put together celebration boxes to be sent to each of your virtual guests.  A fun idea is making it into a superhero party.  Send fun capes and masks for everyone and then have everyone wear them during your virtual birthday party meeting.  Include a fun yummy treat for everyone to share during the fun call.

Create a fun and unique virtual meeting backdrop.  If you are headed online, make sure the background of your video call is festive for a birthday party.  You can add a small balloon arch or some streamers in the background.  Have everyone send presents ahead of time so that family and friends can watch your little one open their presents.

Engage in fun online play.  Host a game to do with your little one on their virtual birthday meeting.  You can play fun games that a toddler can participate in.  Play charades that are all about guessing the animal or have a color scavenger hunt.  These are great and fun games to play on your toddler’s birthday.

Everyone eats cake!  While you may not be able to all participate in blowing out the candles together in person, you can still make this extra special by sending out cupcakes to your virtual guests beforehand.  Make the cupcakes look like smaller versions of your child’s larger birthday cake.  When you sing happy birthday have everyone light a candle and blow them out at the same time!  This looks beautiful on a virtual screen.

A scavenger hunt to reveal presents.  This is a fun game to play with your child and a fun way for people to watch your little one open presents.  Hide presents all around the house.  Also have each of the guests reveal virtually a clue to where their gift is hiding.  This is great fun!

A virtual finger painting birthday party.  For your little artist, a virtual finger painting birthday party is so much fun.  Mail out supplies to your guests.  A small canvas and paints for each of your guests with a birthday hat make this a festive event.  Also when you meet virtually, everyone can take part in making their masterpieces and showing them off!  This is not only a fun activity but a great virtual birthday party souvenir.  

However, you decide to celebrate your little one’s big day, remember to have fun!  While we can’t see each other in person, this is a great way to continue to be connected to the ones we love the most in our families.  We hope next year will be a lot different!
