Virtual Parties to Stay Connected With Friends & Family

Last updated April 13, 2020

It is now easier than ever to stay connected with friends and family. You may be physically apart from your loved ones, but you can still maintain social connection.

Pick up and make video calls!

“I’m too busy” is no longer a valid excuse as we all practice social distancing. If someone is on a different type of device than you (i.e.,. Apple to Android) use Facebook messenger, Google Hangouts, Whatsapp or another messaging system with video calling.

Throw a virtual party

Throw a virtual party on House Party and play mini-games. You can also use services with video calling to host the party (just in case the House Party app crashes). Get imaginative and create different themes. You can tell people to: dress up like they’re going to a fancy dinner, wear clothes for their favorite outdoor activity, or dress up as a celebrity.

Host a virtual board game night

Hosting a board game night is still possible at Board Game Arena or Tabletopia. Your favorite board game may also have the game available virtually on their website. If everyone invited has the physical game, you can try playing on a video call. Games that don’t require a board like charades or guessing drawings can be easily done with online word generators to help with ideas.

Have a movie night

Watch a movie together with Netflix Party. The hardest part might be agreeing on a movie to watch. Everyone in attendance will need a Netflix account and Netflix Party to make sure everyone’s screen is synced. There is also a chat feature to let everyone chime in with their thoughts (or reveal spoilers).
