We’ve put together a list of helpful resources and ideas for hosting a virtual party while we are home bound during the Corona-19 Virus and practicing physical distancing. Now more than ever it’s important to celebrate the kids in our lives, keep socializing and stay connected to our friends safely from our own homes.
We’ve come up with a list of virtual party packages, party ideas and online invitations that give back.

More Unique Virtual Ideas:
Virtual Baking Competition
Bake from home and show off your creations virtually via Facetime or Zoom! Get inspired from the popular baking shows ‘Nailed It’ or ‘Sugar Rush’ or your favourite baking show. For a Nailed It style competition, choose a picture and have everyone replicate it. For a Sugar Rush style party, choose a theme and see how each family interprets the theme. Both ways are so much fun and will spark lots of laughter and joy!
Host a virtual yoga party! Hire a personal instructor to join your party. With all the anxiety right now it’s a great time to get kids to stretch, breathe and relax through yoga. Find an instructor to join your virtual party through FitIn, a community-based directory of online classes. Good anytime too, not just for a party!
