Select from India’s most famous personalities including popular names from comedy, music, and creative circuits.

4. Storytelling Session

Once upon a time we had an epic birthday party and we still talk about stories from it. If your kid also loves stories, you should definitely organise a live online storytelling session. After all, the kids just love asking ‘then what happened?’ and storytellers know just about how to keep them engrossed, in some really interesting tales.

6. Art & Craft Hours

Children can spend hours drawing, painting, coloring. Ask us, we do it quite often too. And to make sure your kid spends some quality time with friends - how about hosting online art & craft sessions for their virtual birthday celebration? Pot painting, origami, folding chip-chops, drawing scenery, making objects out of playdough, or creating a pencil stand. These are just some activities that you can plan for their online party, and in case you need help getting started, head here.

8. Send a cake

There’s nothing quite like going the traditional way of sending a cake. It also helps make some sweet memories, and you can always join in to sing Happy Birthday via a video call. So go ahead, surprise them with a cake or two and save them the effort of having to bake. Oh, btw you can actually bake one and send it too. Learn how.

Savour some sweet sweet memories
