Adelaide’s 10 Best Iso-Birthday & Virtual Party Ideas

By

My daughter turned 7 in April, while we were in self-isolation at home. It left me scrambling for ways in which to make her birthday seem special, even though we had to cancel her party at Tree Climb, and she couldn’t see her friends. What I needed was a list of options to choose from, and because isolating at home was still all so new, there wasn’t one. But I’ve now had the chance to sit down and make this list for you, so hopefully you have make your child’s special day, one to remember – for all the right reasons!

There’s now a stack of great options for virtual parties in Adelaide. You can choose from:

AFL Max Virtual Parties

Even though my daughter isn’t an AFL fan, we actually booked one of these parties, as they were really flexible about what happening during the party. It was also the only virtual party on offer at the time so they were life savers for us! If your child is an AFL fan though, they can even invite an AFL player along!

Scarlett had 10 guests, and they had quizzes, challenges, dance offs, and more. The kids had a great time and they really enjoyed seeing each other up on the screen (we used an HDMI cable and plugged the laptop into the TV so our kids could see the other guests nice and large).

The Scientific Bubble Show Virtual Party

Marty McBubble’s Online Children’s Parties are great for birthday celebrations, as well as for any occasion where children and families would like a fun way to catch up with their friends. 

Marty will host the whole ZOOM party for you. Along with the child’s parent, he will welcome guests onto the Zoom Platform and help them with any technical issues. Friends and family anywhere in the world can attend the party, as long as they have an internet connection and a laptop, tablet or mobile phone.

Marty’s Scientific Bubble Show will be broadcast live into all of your guest’s houses from his performance studio in Adelaide. And his incredible bubble creations will be broadcast in 1080p High Definition video.

And even though Marty presents his show from afar, his show is highly interactive. Marty will converse with the whole group, and with individual children during the show, as he demonstrates the incredible science, wonder and fun of bubbles. 

As well as being able to speak directly to Marty, and ask or answer questions, children will also be able to use the chat feature to message their friends or Marty. 

As always, Marty’s show will be filled with amazing bubble creations like bubble cubes, caterpillars, merry-go rounds, volcanos, rainbows, bubble rockets, giant bubbles, bubble tornados, and much much more. And Marty has plenty of great gags to go along with his bubbles that are sure to keep everyone laughing!

And for Birthday Parties, Marty and the child’s parent will co-ordinate the birthday cake lighting and singing of Happy Birthday. Guests are asked to also have a mini cake with one candle ready, and when all of these candles are burning together on the Zoom screen it looks amazing, and is a very special moment for the birthday child.

Marty will then link the child’s parent up with each guest family individually so you can speak to each other and say any thankyous and well wishes. Often the party will finish up at that point, but Marty can extend the party if the host family and guests would like to stay connected and chat for longer. 

Marty takes all possible steps to ensure his Zoom parties are secure, and that only invited people can join the party. He also sends out the Zoom link only one hour before the party commencement time for this reason. 

Marty (aka Graeme Denton) has current Working with Children Checks, Childsafe Policy and Public Liability Insurance. He also takes all measures to ensure children stay safe whilst online – including the requirement that a parent is present with each child attending the Online Zoom Party.
