With birthday bashes during summer, there are a lot of opportunities presented for fun. Kids could have a pool party, head to the playground, go to a baseball game or have a barbecue in the backyard. But the chillier weather makes it more difficult to find a new and exciting way to celebrate your child’s birthday. Here are a few winter ideas to check out for a bash that your little one and all of his or her friends will love:
Set the tone with winter invites
Mail all of the guests personalized invitations so they can save the date for your child’s birthday party. Look for seasonal invites, like this Snowflake Celebration Invitation, and embrace the feel of this time of year.
If there’s lots of snow on the ground where you live, take the party guests out to a nearby hill where they can go sledding, throw snowballs, make forts and create snow angels. Just make sure you have a designated area in your home to store all of the snow-coated jackets, scarves and gloves.
Have a hot chocolate bar
To help them warm up from the outdoor winter activities, offer a hot chocolate bar. Set out colorful mugs for each child and let them decide what they would like in their winter beverage. Provide dishes of small marshmallows, peppermint, cinnamon, chocolate shavings and whipped cream.
Serve winter-themed pull-apart cupcakes
Frost a batch of vanilla cupcakes and put them together in the shape of a snowflake or snowman. Kids can pull a sweet treat off of the fun design and enjoy.
Give the party goers a chance to make their very own winter craft. Put out stacks of colorful construction paper where they can create paper snowflakes, Christmas trees, ornaments or snowmen. Glued-on cotton balls can be used as fluffy texture for the snowmen.
