Frosty Themed Birthday Party

6 Dec

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 used coconut to decorate the plate like snow!  So cute…

I made tacos for the adults, but made box lunches for the kids…  I found these cute boxes at the craft store!

During the party I had the kids make a craft… They made their own “Frosty” picture with fun puffy stickers…  The kids pictures were full of stickers and very appropriately decorated…  

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!

    This makes me all excited for Christmas!

    I’m not sure how kid-friendly this would be…perhaps with a lot of help…but I found these instructions a few years ago and have had lots of fun decorating my house with these snowflakes. They look really cool!

      OOO yes, I’ve made these before with older kids… Mine would be much too little yet, but I think they are beautiful and 8+ year olds would probably just love it! THANKS for reminding me of these and sharing!
