5 Quarantine Birthday Ideas + Celebrations in the Kitchen Helps to Create Memorable Birthday Celebrations

My oldest son's birthday fell during the quarantine, so I recently researched ideas to celebrate his special day at home.  In today's post, I'll share five of my favorite birthday celebration ideas.

1. Celebrate with a car parade.
Invite friends and families to drive past your house at a specific time so that they are able to wave to the birthday child.  Encourage them to share signs and balloons from a distance!

2. Zoom the celebration.
Set up a zoom meeting to sing Happy Birthday and to share reasons why everyone loves your birthday child. 

3. Decorate cookies or cupcakes for your fun birthday activity.
Bouncy houses and other activities are not available in our area at the moment, but I still wanted to have a fun activity for our children to have fun and bond. We came up with decorating cookies!  Celebrations in the Kitchen is a trendy bakery that ships fabulous cookie and cupcake decorating kits nationwide. They have the perfect kits for birthday celebrations! This bakery has been around for decades and is extra special to us because the owners are perfectionists who pay meticulous attention to detail and also offer some delicious options that are nut-free and dairy-free for my children. For instance, we recommend their Rainbow Cookie Dough Set with Six Colors, It's Your Birthday 13 Cookie Decorating Kit, and Marine Animals Deluxe 12 Cookie Decorating Kit.

The kits provide everything that you need for a fun and creative experience.  As I mentioned, the designers of the kits pay careful attention to detail with the kits and provide a variety of colorful options to decorate cookies. There is a combinatorial explosion of opportunities with the different cookies, colorful frostings, and toppings. 

For instance, here are listings of the kits that we received:

The It's Your Birthday 13 Cookie Decorating Kit includes:
  • 13- Fresh Baked Upon Order Baked Birthday Themed Sugar Cookies (Be sure to include what number you want us to make for you)
  • 7- Snip N'Go Pastry Bags Filled With Colored Icings
  • 6- Colored Confectonery toppings

The Marine Animals Deluxe 12 Cookie Decorating Kit includes:
  • 12- Fresh Baked Upon Order Baked MARINE Animal Sugar Cookies
  • 7- Snip N'Go Pastry Bags Filled With Colored Icings
  • 6- Colored Confectonery toppings

  •  6 containers (3.75oz. each/ 22.5 oz total) of colored cookie dough only

The colorful frostings are pretty and delicious! You just knead the frosting bags and then snip the end so that your children are able to have fun decorating their cookies.

The colorful variety of toppings provide unlimited options for creativity.

The combinatorial explosion of opportunities is perfect for a birthday celebration. My children spent hours decorating the cookies with us. We had fun chatting and working on our cookies together. It was a nice bonding experience that we will all remember when we think about the quarantine.

My children enjoyed decorating with multiple layers. For instance, this shark received a blue base layer of frosting.

This birthday balloon received a thicker base layer of frosting using multiple colors.

We then had fun selecting from many different toppings.

Here are some examples of our creations.

Celebrations in the Kitchen helped us to create fun memories with our children. We love their trendy kits that make it fun to do something special together. I appreciate that the cookie kits were nut-free and dairy-free!  If you want to try their products, we received a 15% off coupon code to share with our readers. Use the coupon code bakingfun15.

4. Create a birthday time capsule for your child to open in 10 years.
Create a time capsule together for a future birthday.  Each family member should write a letter about what life is currently like in 2020.  Include small toys, forever stamps (with a note of how much they cost at the time of purchase), photos, and any other fun items that you want to include.  Personally, we visited a food storage facility and paid <$3 to seal the items in a silver pouch for a fun futuristic looking time capsule. You may also put the contents into any type of box or container that you have around the house.

5. Play remote games with family and friends.
Visit a virtual escape room or play multi-player games together. This is a fun way to bond while having fun!

We hope that you enjoyed our ideas for a Quarantine Birthday Party!  My son's birthday feel during the quarantine. It was fun to create memories that we will always treasure.
