Kid's Birthday? Other Celebration? No Party? Celebrate here!

First, let me give the credit to Totentanzen. He sparked this idea. Now on to the fun:

In this time of social distancing, I suspect there are more like us: kiddo birthday parties canceled. Confusion and questions. Want to still have a party with other kids? Want to share some cheer with others? Come on in!

If you have a kiddo whose party was canceled (or heck, is even just missing friends because schools are closed), tell us what would brighten their day. Maybe you had a project planned for the party? Share your kiddo's creation and let our kids make their own versions of that project to share back to your kid. Or perhaps you just have a theme. Share your themes here and let our kids make some art to share.

(You Big kids count as well) Anniversary? Birthday? I won't even make you tell us how old you are. Just give us something to work with and poof there will be some artwork to brighten your day!

I'll kick us off. My daughter is turning 6 on Monday. We didn't have a big party planned, but we were planning to see some of her friends. They are self-quarantined awaiting test results, so even that is off. We are doing a unicorn theme. Want to share something unicorn-y to brighten up her day? Post it here!

I can't take the credit, It twas your idea to post the thread!

I wish I had more unicorns in my house! Two older boys and one girl a unicorn army does not make! But I did have one unicorn stuffed animal!

My son turns 5 on tuesday and we were going to do a stuffed animal adoption party. Were going to just do it as a family today instead. Ill share pictures tonight. We have a green and yellow cake (He wanted the colors) To be honest I have no idea what would make him happy. He likes transformers and the like so if anyone has any cool ones to share that would be awesome!

Had my Yes, I’m old. Wanna fight about it?28th anniversary today. Instead of going out, she got a person pizza to go and I got Poke. Honestly, not a hell of a lot different than I would have done in a normal situation. So I guess my post doesn’t really belong here

To Roek and Totes. Having parents that care is so much more important than any single birthday. They’ll get over it a lot quicker than you will!

Wishing all of the youngsters happy birthdays!!!

My son is turning one today and we had to cancel is his party. I don't think he knows. We had my mother over yesterday and my father and brother are coming over today. He likes dinosaurs.

He liked his cupcake yesterday.

@Raylorne - A dinosaur! Pretty sure the colors were inspired by the cupcake. Also, a recreation of your picture...
 

@Totenzen - Balloons from my 3 year old; they were going to be green and yellow, but ... attention spans ... With two girls, we don't have much in the way of transformers, but we've got green and yellow! (we also got stuck on dinosaurs ... those attention spans ...)
 


@Squeak - I've got two stir-crazy kids ... I was not sure how many "please"s to put here, just assume it goes on for a while ...please, please, please give them purpose! They were as excited to help celebrate your anniversary as they were other kid's birthdays. I think my 3 year old drew you a cake ... I've been told that it was several different things, including a cake for Squeak (I think I mentioned something about attention spans ...). The other is definitely a cake.

Thank your daughter for the cake Roek!!!

I have two daughters that are teachers and they highly recommend novel effects. It makes sound effects when you read a book, very cool.

I can't wait for this, honestly

50+ people screeching over Skype while the kid loves every second of it. I don't have kids of my own but Imveros' nephew is a pretty good egg so he should get a little cheer.

My wife's birthday is in a week and I know she's going to be stir-crazy by then so I'm thinking on ideas for virtual hangs with her friends.

I've never been a party person but she's thrown a couple great ones for my landmark year birthdays so it seems like a good time to give back.

We did an 18th birthday on lockdown last week. Everyone was responsible for coming up with a craft or activity. There was cake baking, dice making (from wood blanks cut and sanded by hand earlier in the day), paper doll making, a board game, a one-hour video compilation from the 1st year of the celebrant's life, and a nice meal. Turned out to be a pretty good birthday!

If you are still desperate for art projects, Roekahs, she likes kayaks, violins, and stars/space. Alternatively, she just started a D&D game with her sister and is playing a flashy axe-juggling fighter performer type who wears a lot of purple (including the axe.)

Thanks for sharing Birched. I'm glad you were able to do something. I have been trying to wrangle art out of the girls for a couple days with literally no success. They are so confused + spring stir-crazy + cooped up stir crazy!! My oldest was excited about the purple axe juggler though ... so there may be a picture coming down the line.

Imveros, I love the Skype call idea! I suspect that is actually going to be a very special memory for him!
