Supermom In Training: Throwing an e-party for my bean during self-isolation

My bean turns 7 this weekend. We had lots planned - a video game birthday party on the Saturday with his closest friends, family coming in for his actual birthday, etc. Well, our plans have definitely changed.

So I'll be throwing an e-party for my bean during self-isolation. I have a few ideas in mind:

- I've invited each of the kids invited to his Saturday party to instead call him on FaceTime throughout the day. That way, he'll still get to see his friends.

- I'll be setting up a little outdoor surprise - either borrowing a bouncy house from someone or setting up an obstacle course.

- His aunt and cousins are having a birthday present shipped here via Amazon, and will be hanging out outside on the day of his birthday to watch him open it. They're also going to make him a big poster.

What else can I do to make my son's birthday memorable and special?
