Frozen Themed Birthday Party: ideas for lots of fun frozen inspired kids games and activities and frozen themed party decor.
On the weekend we had the great pleasure of celebrating the birthday of one very special little girl, my God-daughter Tara. This year it was a Disney’s frozen themed birthday party. There were so many great ideas that I can’t wait to share them with you. The birthday girl loves the frozen movies, so this was the perfect theme for her.
Love Is An Open Door Wreath
The party guests were first greeted by the most PERFECT decoration on the door as the first thing they saw. Tara’s mom Heather made a simple wreath by covering a wreath form with white yarn. Heather purchased the sweet “love is an open door” printable from Etsy. The saying is a line from the movie and was the perfect way to greet guests. Open door…get it?. The finishing touch was a little Anna doll -the birthday girl’s favourite character! Tara can play with the toy after the party. It was the perfect welcome to a frozen birthday party.
Frozen Themed Birthday Party Decor
The party scene was set in the front entryway with some DIY frozen party decorations. On the entry table was a sweet little wintery forest inspired by the movie frozen and made of tabletop Christmas trees and some Frozen toys. The fun Disney movie poster was hung in the entry and moved to the birthday girl’s bedroom after the party. It’s decorated with a banner of the birthday girl’s name.
The stapler on the table allowed party goers to make their own party hat. They could choose from an Elsa crown shape, or Sven antlers, (Anna was reserved for the Birthday girl on her special day). This was the perfect way to get ready to head into the frozen-themed party.
DIY Faux Snowballs
I also loved the bowl of faux snowballs, and snowflake lights that greeted us. The faux snow balls were an easy DIY craft project made out of styrofoam balls, white glue, faux snow and epsom salts. These were such a fun way to bring in the snow theme, and they’ll be a perfect addition to the Christmas decor after the party.
There were lots and lots of other snowflakes hung throughout the house for the party and creating a perfect winter wonderland. Each paper snowflake was hung with clear fishing line, creating such a beautiful effect.
Frozen Themed Birthday Party Games and Activities
Puffy Paint Snow Picture
Inside, the first activity for everyone to enjoy was some puffy paint snow picture making. Heather made puffy paint with shaving foam, white glue, and white paint ahead of time. For the party it was set out in containers with paint brushes and blue card stock so that it would show up well. Along with the paint there were all kinds of sparkly and icy toned jewels, snowflakes, sequins, cotton balls, and glitter paper. Kids could design anything, including Elsa’s ice castle.
The puffy paint was so much fun, because it’s fluffy, and thick since it’s made with shaving cream. The little kids loved creating their own snow picture. This was also a great activity to do at the beginning of the party, since it gave it some time to dry before the kids took them home.
Decorate Your Own Snowflake Cookies
The next activity was decorating snowflake sugar cookies. What a yummy activity that was!
Heather made the snowflake shaped cookies in advance and gave everyone four to decorate. She made white, purple, and blue icing and there was an assortment of white and blue candy sprinkles, jimmies, white chocolate chips, and candy to decorate them with. The icing was in sealed squirt bottles which made it so much easier than piping bags for little hands. The little guests had so much fun making their designs.
My youngest, Maddie, was concentrating hard on her very detailed designs. If anyone knows of any local bakeries that need decorators, I might know a few little girls who’d be interested.
Before they started decorating the cookies, Heather had everyone write their name on a little tag, which stayed on their plate of cookies. This was the best way to make sure we didn’t mix up who’s cookies were who’s. After they were decorated we left them out on the counter to dry a little and then packaged them into cello bags, and attached their tags to take home. It worked perfectly and was such a big hit with the kids. These were a great addition to the party favors.
“Do You Want To Build A Snowman” Waterless Snow Globe
The next activity on the list was a really cute one, make your own snowman DIY snow globes. Everyone worked on the lid of a mason jar, and used air dry clay to create their own snowman. There were ribbons to use as scarves, branches for arms, orange clay for noses inspired by a olaf’s nose, and buttons.
We also came up with the idea of making little winter toques. Heather snipped off the tips of the fingers of some dollar store gloves in different colours and had small pompoms to glue to the tops to create a winter hat. Then we hot glued the hats onto the snowmen when they were done. This was such a clever idea.
One of the great things about all these party activities is that they were fun for kids of different ages. The four year olds could do them all, and the ten year olds could do the same activity but just with more detail. Therefore all ten kids at the party with varying ages enjoyed every activity.
Next we sprinkled the finished snowmen with some fake snow. Finally we screwed the top of the mason jar on to make a pretty waterless snow globe for the kids to take home with them.
Elsa Ice Castle Game
One of the last, but certainly not least little frozen party ideas was building queen Elsa’s ice castle. We used plastic cups as our ice blocks. Way back when we went camping in the summer, Heather brought some plastic cups and our girls had a lot of fun stacking them –see the post about it here. She had the great idea of using clear plastic cups for the ice castles, and again the kids really liked it.
The plastic cups resembled ice cubes and they had so much fun creating lots of different versions of ice castles, and then unbuilding them and building them again. Such a simple game, but they loved it. And when the clear cups were all stacked together into a castle, they really did have a frozen look.
Heather found three different sizes of clear cups. They used regular ones, short stubby ones, and mini shot glass all from the dollar and party store. The kids had a lot of fun building. And I love that this activity had very little prep time required, and was also easy to clean up afterward.
While they were building, Heather set up a beautiful party table of Frozen themed snacks, and a dessert table which you can read all about here where I share all the frozen themed food ideas.
If you’re planning a Frozen party anytime soon, I hope some of these fun frozen-themed birthday party activity and decoration ideas inspire you. The kids absolutely LOVED them.
Happy birthday Tara, and thanks for having us at your amazing birthday celebration.
With a frozen themed birthday party to enjoy, life really is a party!
