I bet when you were planning your child’s next birthday you weren’t expecting to have to plan a lockdown party?
We certainly weren’t! For Little H’s 9th birthday later this month we were planning a pool party and BBQ with her friends but unfortunately this isn’t going to happen now. We can do this later when things are back to normal, but in the mean time we need to try to find some ways to make the day fun even if it’s just the three of us. I think it’s important to try and make things as normal as possible – even if nothing feels normal right now.
I’ve managed to order all of her presents from Amazon and Carrefour, and have ordered some cupcakes that can be delivered from a local lady. I’ve also trawled Amazon for lots of decorations and accessories that we can put up at home to make the place look more like a birthday party.
If you’re wondering how to plan a birthday party in quarantine, here are some of the best party supplies on Amazon for a great quarantine birthday party for kids…
All kids’ birthday parties need balloons! As well as balloons with ages on, you can buy foil balloons for helium in various shapes and sizes, balloon garlands, character balloons, you name it.
Another kids’ birthday party must have is a birthday banner. Stick one to the front of the house so everyone in the street knows it’s their birthday, another in the living room, and maybe another in the garden!
Amazon has a great selection of banners including personalised banners, age banners, birthday banners for boys, birthday banners for girls, banners that come in a pack with other decorations, so many different banners to choose from.
Piñatas are so much fun for birthday parties, though admittedly it’s more fun when there are lots of kids to play. Still, a piñata is a great way to add a bit of fun and games into what could otherwise be quite a quiet birthday. You can buy all kinds of piñatas on Amazon from the traditional Mexican donkey piñata to unicorn piñatas, rainbow piñatas, age piñatas, and lots more. You can also buy the big bags of sweets to go inside.
You can’t have a kids’ birthday party without party food, and party food means a decorated table! Don’t forget to buy plates, cups, napkins, tablecloth and candles to decorate with. On Amazon you can buy themed birthday party supplies to suit all kids from Toy Story to LOL Dolls, age candles to sparklers.
Last on the must have birthday supplies list is a great birthday cake. Even if there’s only going to be immediate family at the birthday party in quarantine, you still need a cake. If you’re planning on making one then a cool cake topper can make all the difference. Amazon has personalised cake toppers, age cake toppers, themed cake toppers, and character cake toppers.
Hopefully these suggestions have given you some inspiration on how to make your child’s birthday party fun in quarantine. What are your must have buys for a great quarantine birthday party for kids?
