Frosty the Snowman Party

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!

    Hi, I was looking at your website and thought what clever ideas. Well, my daughter is turning two and like your son was obsessed with frosty she is too. I didn’t show her the movie she actually got it from a book which was not about frosty either but every time we would come to the snowman page i would sing her the frosty song now everything to her is frosty. So I decided this year to do a Frosty theme although it will be in May and we live in Puerto Rico that’s kind of odd right, anyways thanks for the ideas i think I will be using some of them.

    Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inch-wide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.
    Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, and slip over center of folded tissue; twist. With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes.
    Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time.
    Bend wire into a loop to fit around napkin, and twist end around loop to secure.

      Sonia, they are brown sprinkles… They are just bigger ones in the shape of an l. I think you can get them most grocery stores, craft stores, walmart etc..
