At Pals, we celebrate friendship because we believe that it makes the world a kinder, cooler place. We understand in these strange times it can be hard when you cannot just hang with your friends like you use to, and we’ve done the research to help! Even when the world seems upside down and everything normal seems so far away, we can still stay connected to the people in our lives. Surely you have done a zoom call or fifty in the past few weeks! We are in a time where we can use the web to continue maintaining connections, combating loneliness, and seeing your friends safely! Below we have rounded up some of the coolest, most fun ways to hang out (virtually) with your bestest pals!
1. Snapology Virtual Playdates
A playdate customized for you and your pals interests? Sign us up! Whether you and your pals are into art, science, or animals, Snapology will design your playdate around your interests! Playdates are via Zoom and can accommodate playdates up to 14 kids, starting at $65 (hint– the more pals you invite, the lower the cost!)
2. Virtual Birthday Party, $100
Birthdays are a special day that deserve to be celebrated, and staying home shouldn’t change that! Bubbledad is taking his famous bubbles and performing private birthday shows live via Zoom (check out some of his bubbles in action!) After the bubble magic show, Bubbledad teaches the kids how to do DIY bubbles! So pick your bestest pals and get ready for some bubble magic!
4. Netflix Party
Thanks to a chrome extension, kids can now enjoy a movie night together with their friends! Netflix Party lets kids watch movies together by creating an invitation link which syncs the video playback so everyone is at the same place and this also allows the kids to chat via the group chat setting. So grab some popcorn and your favorite candy and enjoy an at-home movie night with your pals!
Tired of playing board games with your family? Houseparty is here to help! This app allows groups of people to get together via video chat and play games like Heads Up (similar to Headbanz), Trivia, Chips and Guac (similar to Apples to Apples), and Quick Draw (similar to pictionary) and is perfect for kids of all ages!
6. Uno With Friends
Looking for some silly fun with friends? Psych is like a game of trivia, except the answers are made up– and the funnier they are the better! So grab some friends and get the laughs going! (ps– this game is perfect for pals that are 4+)
8. Cards Against Humanity Family Edition
All the fun and laughs of Cards Against Humanity, but for the whole family! In this kid-friendly version of Cards Against Humanity, all you need to do is print out the sheets, grab some pens, and get ready to have some fun!
9. Psssst– parents this one is just for you!
