This weekend we celebrated my son’s third birthday. I asked him what kind of a party he wanted and he said “Frosty the Snowman”. Ever since last year when we watched it for the first time he has been obsessed with Frosty. I had really hoped we’d have enough snow to build a Frosty, but this year we had to make do with an indoor snowman party! Here are some pictures from the party!
We started by decorating with tissue paper snowballs. They are pretty easy to make (I’ll post the directions)…
I made Snowman cupcakes using marshmallows, orange gummy slices, chocolate jimmies, and toothpicks (pretzel sticks would work great too)…
We also decorated snowman cookies… My Sister in Law is a pastry chef and made these adorable cookies for the kids to decorate… I put all of the cookie decorating supplies on a plate for each child so they had everything they needed right in front of them. It created less mess and they turned out so cute!
After a couple crafts, we had all the kids sit down and watch Frosty and they were surprisingly calm and quiet during the movie… This provided a little time for the adults to eat! When the movie was over we played a good old fashioned game called “toss the snowball”… We used cotton balls and the kids tried to toss them into the bowl. Near the end of this game my husband yelled “SNOWBALL FIGHT” and there were cotton balls flying all over the place! I think they would have played this 4-EVER… I also think I will be finding “snowballs” for the next several days….
We ended the night with a few party favors (Frosty the Snowman covered suckers and tree ornaments)… Sweet and simple!
Happy Birthday Little Buddy!
