With social distancing fully in place all over the world at this point, many of us are getting stir crazy — kids included. 

This will be hard on us all in many different ways, but our children in particular will suffer from a lack of social connection outside the time. 

Fortunately, there are so many ideas to keep your kids from feeling too sad or isolated during these difficult times, including virtual playdates!

What Is a Virtual Playdate?

A virtual playdate is a video call between little friends. They can feel like they’re in the same room while maintaining a safe physical distance.

How to hold a virtual playdate:

  • Talk to the parents of your kids’ friends to set up a time.
  • Set up your phone or tablet on a stand, or put your computer somewhere your kid can play in front of. 
  • Pick an activity — or even a couple — and make sure the other parents have the same activities planned. 
  • Gather up everything your kid(s) will need for the playdate activities, and set them up in front of the device. 
  • At the designated time, use FaceTime, Skype, Whatsapp, or another video calling service to make the connection. 
  • Don’t forget to take screenshots or pictures to remember these sweet little moments!

Read on for a list of activities, project ideas, and a printable checklist you can work your way through.
