“Let it goooo, let it go…”
If you are reading this blog post, you have likely heard this song before (more times than you can count, right?). You probably also have a Frozen-obsessed little one with a birthday coming up.
Now that you have this popular Disney song stuck in your head, let’s come up with some fun ideas for your child’s Frozen theme party.
Set the theme with Frozen invitations
Whether you order the invites or print them yourself, the cards you send to your child’s friends should allude to the Frozen party theme.
A cute invitation idea is to put all the supplies for building a snowman (ie. marshmallows, pretzel stick arms, mini chocolate chips, and candy corn for the nose) into a baggie and attach it to the invitation. It should read: “Do you want to build a snowman?” Follow with the party details.
Add to the fun by asking guests to dress as their favorite Frozen characters.
Decorate with a Frozen theme
“You kind of set off an eternal winter...everywhere.”
When decorating for a Frozen party, think of winter: snow, ice, and ‘cold’ colors.
If you want to keep it simple, stick with a blue, silver, and white color scheme when choosing items such as balloons, streamers, and tablecloths to create a chilly atmosphere. Paper snowflakes and snow-covered trees (branches painted white and covered in glitter) will help add to the Frozen theme as well.
Take it a step further by building an ice castle playhouse for the kids. Whether it’s made out of wood or cardboard, or even fabric, the kids will have an icy good time playing in it.
Serve Frozen-inspired food and drinks
“We finish each other’s sandwiches.”
There are a number of fun, Frozen-inspired dishes you could serve at your child’s Frozen party. Here are a few ideas to help you get started:
- Anything that is ‘snow-covered’ (powdered mini donuts, white almond bark pretzels…)
- Blue finger jello, or ‘Kristoff’s ice’
- Jumbo dipped pretzel sticks with sprinkles
- Blue cake pops with sprinkles
- Baby carrots or cheese puffs are ‘Olaf’s nose’
- Blue punch with scoops of vanilla ice cream, or ‘melting snowmen’
- Draw Olaf the snowman on individually-wrapped mozzarella cheese sticks
- Strawberries covered in white chocolate are now ‘frozen hearts’
- Hershey’s kisses to ‘melt a frozen heart’
- Popcorn ‘snowballs’
- Hot chocolate with marshmallows
If the party guests are old enough to read, label each dish so they know what it is. If not, be sure to tell them. They’ll be much more excited to eat a carrot stick if they think it’s Olaf’s nose!
Plan ‘cool’ activities & games
It’s not a party without fun games and activities! You can use these ideas as inspiration, or you can come up with your own games for your child’s Frozen party.
- Ring toss with Sven: The goal is to toss plastic rings and land them on Sven’s antlers. A DIY option is to draw Sven’s head on a piece of cardboard and cut it out.
- Pin the nose on Olaf: The kids are blindfolded and attempt to pin a carrot nose onto a picture of Olaf the snowman.
- Make rock trolls: Provide rocks and supplies (markers, paint, etc.) that the kids can use to make their own rock trolls.
- Snowball toss: The kids toss white foam balls and try to land as many as possible in the provided bucket.
Before the party guests leave, hand out Frozen-inspired party favors, such as stickers, blue slime, or sugar cookies covered in blue sprinkles. Between the fun Frozen games, food, and decor, they aren’t likely to forget this party anytime soon!
