Time to get a little more creative on how to celebrate your child’s birthday in the time of quarantine. After the birthday party parade, here are some suggestions to help you host a virtual, online birthday party. Since virtual doesn’t require “local,” the people mentioned below are from all over the USA, including California, New York, and Massachusetts.
Birthday Party Virtual Performers
Apart Party – They hit the spot with this offering: Games, laughs, and magic fun.
Bubble Dad – Bubbles and birthdays, what else do I need to say? Bubble Dad will host a virtual bubble show with magic and more.
Circus Science Zoom Show – Greg May has entertained people for years, particularly in Howard County, Maryland. This former Ringling Brothers Clown has brought some science to his act and perfected it online for virtual kids’ Zoom parties. Greg is great. Sure to be fun no matter where you are.
Scott Dietrich Magic Show – Scott Dietrich offers to bring his award-winning magic to your child’s birthday party virtually. Magic, animals, and even balloon sculpting.
Tricky Tim Magic Show – Tricky Tim’s magic offering looks like a load of fun. Save the birthday party and invite Tim!
Jumpin’ Jams – Virtual music birthday. This is a fantastic way to have fun and bring your guests music.
CyberJams – A rockin’ 45-minute virtual birthday party, sure to get kids’ attention. The birthday boy or girl will take part in a musical performance.
Chris Palmieri Puppeteer – How about a puppet show for some great fun? A memorable show from a world-class performer.
The Pit – Since you can’t really “go” anywhere to celebrate your kid’s birthday, why not go somewhere you wouldn’t probably go “virtually.” The Pit is one of those opportunities. A Broadway impromptu performance. How cool!
Robert the Guitar Guy – Add live, personalized music to your child’s online birthday party.
Guardian Adventures – Take an online interactive journey with your birthday hero at the center of the story. Fight monsters and save the world along the way. Possible themes include Medieval, Warrior Princess, Superheroes, and Zombies. Video: https://youtu.be/2BQx-aky1xM

Other Great Live Online Parties
Sky Zone – Sky Zone is offering FREE virtual birthday parties. See their video so you’ll know what the party is like. Unfortunately, there is a waiting list for the parties at this time–but why not sign up, heck, have two parties. Video introduction: https://youtu.be/wafv3IB8ZE8
By now, most people have probably figured out a video chat platform that works for them. But in case you want to host your own party, I might suggest Google Meet or Houseparty. Both are great choices for easy setup and universal access.
