No, we haven’t figured out how to blow out candles virtually, but there’s still plenty of excellent ways to celebrate your birthday or a loved one’s while maintaining social distancing. Connect everyone using Skype, for instance, and route birthday cards in OneDrive for everyone to sign.

Or hold your party in Minecraft, where no amount of distance can stop you from sharing an awesome new world. Or choose from our list of virtual zoo tours for party-goers to explore together.

Whichever activity you choose, you can make it more memorable by adding a PowerPoint slideshow using one of our easy-to-use templates. Save it on OneDrive and share the link so others can add their photos.

Visit the Windows Home and Family Resources Blog for these and other activities to keep your special day special despite today’s challenges.
