15 Fantastic Frozen Party Ideas
Is your child a Frozen fanatic? After all these years, I thought my soon-to-be 5 year old would have “let it go.” But alas, Frozen fever is still hot in our household! We’ve collected countless Elsa, Anna, and Olaf toys not to mention the costumes, castles, and games. And with our snowflake decals still up from Christmas, we decided to put them all to good use by hosting a fantastic Frozen play date. We were in the peak of winter freezing our you know whats off so a Frozen posh play date did seem quite timely. As with all my posh play dates, I did some asking around and got some fabulous small businesses to collaborate in the production. Amanda’s Parties To Go for instance, supplied us with all the decorative printables. She had gorgeous items ranging from cupcake toppers, banners, thank you cards, tent cards, to centerpieces and food flags. And the designs perfectly mixed my love of modern graphics with a clean, blue and white palette. As a bonus, she also jam-packed her printables with amazing menu ideas with her pre-printed tent cards! Using some of her suggested ideas, and some of my own entertainment ideas, I’ve collected 15 fantastic fun-filled ideas for your very own fab Frozen event!
- Host a screening or simply have the beloved movie playing in the background turning the TV into themed decor. What’s a Frozen party without Frozen, the movie after all?
- Dress-up! We encouraged our little guests to come dressed in their favorite Frozen gear and also shared our Frozen wardrobe with them so that they could play dress-up and accessorize upon arriving. The costumes become part of the decor in doing so!
- Create a crafting corner encouraging kids to make a snowflake, wand, or crown. Angela’s Party printables included signs for all of the above activities! We made our first-ever snowflakes together by cutting out white (and also perfectly coordinated blue and white patterned) papers. The kids were so excited to unfold the snowflake and see their creations come to life!
- “Wanna build a snowman??“ Build a real one outside while wearing tiaras if it happens to be a snowy day. Or do what we did, build a snowman out of marshmallows, chocolate chips, pretzel sticks and candy corn! The printable set has the perfect sign for this activity. And I found Ziploc bags with Frozen characters printed on them to send them home with Olaf!
- Kiddie Kareoke Will your child not stop singing, Let It Go? How did I know… Use their love of singing as entertainment for everyone and host a kiddie kareoke! We had an Elsa blue microphone, so it seemed natural to have a Frozen Kareoke moment but your singalong could simply be belting out tunes along with the Frozen soundtrack and any old microphone (or wand turned into microphone).
- Play Frozen games. We had a matching game, an I Spy game and a Frozen book with character pieces displayed for the kids to pull out and play with to their heart’s content. If you don’t have any of these, don’t fret! Simply play a game of freeze tag or play music and have them dance until you make it stop and say, “FREEZE!”
- Paint your nails Elsa and Anna colors!Think, Elsa, blue, white, glitter, and Anna pink! The almost-5 – year old kids painted their own nails and I was truly impressed at their level of concentration and skill! Juliet here creatively decided to paint each nail on her hand a different Frozen-themed color and it turned out great!!
- Make snow cakes With the printable tent card as our inspiration, we created rice krispy treats. You could create these with white snowflake sprinkles or white and blue M&Ms for an extra sweet Frozen surprise.
- Color Anna, Elsa or the entire cast! I don’t know any child that doesn’t enjoy coloring so we made sure to include a coloring station at our play date. Kids got to choose from several character coloring sheets already included in Angela’s printables set and had fun coloring to the soundtrack of Frozen playing in the background.
- Play catch with a snowball! We played catch with my furry, white Christmas ornaments but you can use any white ball or heck a real snowball or a stuffed Frozen character!
- Add some Frozen flair! Whether this means decorating your child’s room, her car/bike/scooter or clubhouse like we did, the kids will have fun using the printables to stick on their favorite characters and sayings. Juliet helped me pre-party to decorate her clubhouse as well as add signs all around the house for me.
- Set up a Dessert and Snack station. Olaf Arms (mini candy sticks or pretzel sticks), Elsa’s ice crystals (blue rock candy), Olaf’s cookies (snowflake cookies), Frozen’s favorite fruit (mixed fruit), snow pudding (blue jello), Anna’s Apples, and Kristoff’s candies are what we featured. And it was easy, given Angela’s Parties To Go already labeled and included printables for all these items.
- Food and beverage To warm us up on this very Frozen Friday, I made some chili and garlic bread and offered melted snow (water bottles and seltzer waters covered in the party labels), along with a hot cocoa bar. SP Sweet Creations sent us the tableware (see the paper plates, straws, and paper cups) It was the perfect addition to this pastel party!
- Toys galore! It’s all about the toys at this age. Pulling out toys for the kids under one theme, helps everyone to focus and helps us mommies to keep some semblance of order around the house. I don’t know about you but I manage the overflowing toys and prevent boredom by rotating (i.e. hiding and pulling out) toys. One day we’ll have a Play-doh play date, another day it might be a Barbie play date, or yet another it might be a Shopkins party. Yes, I’ve planned and hosted playdates with all those themes…check out the links! This way, all the toys don’t get mixed, scattered and lost. The kids can focus and get excited for the toy theme of the day.
- Snow bubble and Elsa Soap favors Custom-made, Frozen-themed bubbles courtesy of SP Sweet Creations were a big hit amongst these little ones. They had fun trying to make the biggest bubbles possible and chased each other around with the bubble wands. We gave one away to each playmate along with stickers, snowflake hair elastics and adorable glitter soaps in Elsa colors made by TLC for U. These customized soaps can come with glitter and the Elsa character or with any small toy hidden inside! The kids had a laugh attack playing with the soap in the shower…while still in their Elsa dresses!! SO much Frozen fun! What is your favorite idea?
