A Frozen Birthday Party for my Boy

My son’s birthday was this weekend, and he had told me months ago that he wanted to have a Frozen party. Kind of tricky to have a Frozen party for boys,  since most of the things you find are Elsa & Anna, but we did it! This was his invitation:

Crosby

Here are the events of the party and then I’ll go into more detail below:

Decorations

Snow for the kids to play with as they came in

Pray over Crosby and the food

Eat Frozen themed food

Game: Do you want to build a snowman? team game

Cake

Crafts: Epsom salt snowflakes and Olaf snowglobes

Open presents

Goody bags

Olaf Pinata

(We were going to play the Do you want to draw a snowman game found on Family Fun Website, but the Pinata was a total last minute purchase, so with that, we ran out of time!)

Decorations: I mainly decorated one room, and decorated 2 others minimally. Here’s the Dining room:

I found snowflake ornaments at the Dollar Store that looked just like Elsa’s, so I had to get them! My son called this the “Frozen Fractal Room” IMG_8503IMG_8485 We had pictures taken at Disney World with Anna and Elsa and then some fun ones the Disney people stuck characters into, that I framed for decor in the dining room.

Here’s the Kitchen, our “Summer Room”. Just like Olaf’s song. All Bumblebees, sun & clouds.IMG_8470  IMG_8489IMG_8490 My son made the dandelions!

Our living room became: IMG_8475 IMG_8477These decorations are made using a cardboard box and paint, obviously! The family in the sauna was a pic I took at Hollywood Studios of a door there. I just blew it up into a poster.

Snow: I found a recipe to make snow indoors. http://www.growingajeweledrose.com/2013/01/erupting-snow-recipe.html I used 2 64 oz boxes of baking soda and 2  1/2 cans of shaving cream. Then I just mixed it together, kind of like kneading dough. I had 4 basins of snow and put the basins on a teal shower curtain on the floor for the kids to have something to do while they waited til everyone got here.

Frozen Food:

We had “Anna’s Sandwiches”, Kristoff’s Swedish Meatballs, Olaf pizza, Sven’s trailmix…

Game: Do you want to build a snowman?  For this, all you need are teams, a roll of toilet paper for each, and tape, scissors, and paper. (black, orange, and brown) Using these items, teams selected a boy to be their snowman and set to work decorating him. This was so cute!

IMG_8364 IMG_8372IMG_8361IMG_8378 IMG_8376 IMG_8377 And a good time was had by all, except for that little boy lurking on the steps in the last picture. He was the one who didn’t want to participate!

Cake: I’m obviously not a cake decorator, but my son always wants me to make his cake. Home-made cake tastes best! The one stick of rock candy is supposed to be slanted. You see, my Bing wanted Elsa to be shooting ice out of her hand, and this was the best I could do!

IMG_8387My husband picked up this Frozen chocolate cupcake mix, so I made them as well, even though I felt like I was cheating.

Crafts: We used Epsom salt to make snowflakes on black paper. I would suggest using small cups of this. http://www.montessorimessy.com/2013/12/painting-snowflakes-epsom-salts-on-black.html I should have tried this prior to the party, because it took a little while to figure it out and I think they were over it by then. IMG_8498 The other craft was Olaf in a snowglobe. My son was adamant that we not use water, or Olaf would melt. We bought little Olaf figures at 5 Below and hot glued their feet to the lid of a babyfood jar. IMG_8412

Then we sprinkled fine confetti “snow” into the jar and put on the lid.

Here’s our finished snow globe!

Then we opened gifts and I gave out the gift bags. IMG_8501

Inside the gift bags, I put the kids cups from the party, their snowglobes, rock candy from the top of the cake, some Frozen snacks we found, and a Frozen Fun booklet. (coloring pages , word searches, and a how to draw Olaf tutorial for the older kids.) I also included a “Do you want to build a snowman?” snack kit. Big marshmallows for the bottom of Olaf, 2 regular marshmallows, and 2 tiny marshmallows for his feet! Pretzel sticks, chocolate chips, and orange candy nose and tootsie roll stick hair. 

IMG_8499Olaf for the girls, the other for the boysIMG_8459 Pinata: Who doesn’t love a pinata? Olaf was the only thing Frozen about this guy. Since he wasn’t planned, I just grabbed some party favors and candy at Walmart. It killed me that the pinata fillings weren’t Frozen themed, but the kids honestly don’t care. I think they had a blast!
