The Perfect Winter Birthday Party Ideas!

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.

Great ideas for hosting the perfect winter birthday party for kids! We used most of these ideas for my tween daughter, and they were a big hit! {} Kids 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.)

Do you want to build a snowman? Forget the snow, and grab some socks to create an adorable sock snowman instead! {Christmas kids craft or winter decor? You choose!}

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!

How to Host a Frozen Party {Sock Snowball Fight!}

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!

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:
