Princesses will sing, dance, bake and take part in craft activities at 2:30pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays on the business’ Facebook page.

Each day there will be a different character who will be able to interact with the children at home and give shout outs to those watching.

The videos will then be uploaded to their YouTube channel.

Owner of Snow Princess Parties, Lydia Welsh, explained they want to “spread lots of positive energy” and will continue their live videos for as long as people are in lockdown.

The decision comes as the coronavirus outbreak has meant all the business’ parties for the next three months have been cancelled or postponed and staff are at home.

Characters such as princesses, mermaids and pirates usually deliver children’s parties and play games such as limbo, parachute games, snowball fights and relay races.

Lydia added she would like the videos to be educational too focusing on topics such as washing your hands.
