Is there a winter birthday girl at your house? It seems like parties can be a little bit tricky when you can’t send the kids outside to play when you run out of things to do! For my daughter’s 12th birthday, we decided to embrace the cold and go with a snowman theme. Mother nature even cooperated and sent us a blizzard that night! Here are my favorite winter birthday party ideas.
With a winter them, of course you’ll want to build some snowmen — in the house! Here are a few different snowmen crafts you might choose for your party. (For this party of 12-year-old girls, we chose the first two.)
Frozen Fever Snowgies Craft (This one’s really easy!)
Of course, you could always send the kids outside to build a snowman. If your party is at night, though, that’s kind of tough. It gets dark and cold really quickly! If you do build snowmen, be sure to let the kids know ahead of time so that they can dress appropriately. Plan ahead with lots of fun props to make the snowmen unique!
If you are feeling extra adventurous, and you live in a state that stays warm all winter, you can try having a sock snowball fight. (It was too cold for us!) Or, if you have a big house with nothing breakable, you could try this indoors. I take no responsibility for damages!
Of course you want your guests to stay warm, so try this festive hot chocolate!
When it’s time for the birthday cake, make it simple, but keep with the theme with this easy snowflake cake. This was originally for a Frozen Birthday party, but it fit perfectly with the winter theme, too!
Once you’re all worn out, toss some giant pillows on the floor in front of the TV, and watch a classic Christmas or winter movie while you wait for the parents. Your choice will depend on the age of your kids, but here are a few ideas:
