Looking for fun Zoom virtual backgrounds for kids? From Disney to Pixar to Harry Potter, there's lots of fun backgrounds for Zoom below that the kids will love.

In these Zoom engagement tips, I mentioned the idea of trying themed video chats with kids by using virtual backgrounds.

Well, using the virtual background feature as a teacher or therapist is a great way to hook or engage a child into the Zoom meeting, especially if you pick a background that aligns with that child's special interests, passions, or "obsessions."

For example, if you're working with a hyperlexic kid over Zoom, then you might want to try an alphabet background.

Or, if you're a parent, then your kids can use these fun backgrounds for Zoom for kids to showcase their personality to their classmates and friends.
