Frozen Party Ideas

Frozen never seems to let go and is therefore still very much in our children’s hearts so there is no wonder Frozen is still a popular theme with our little princesses!Frozen-wand

It is easier than you may think to have your own great memorable party at home (or in a hall) that your child and their friends will remember for years to come.  And to make it even easier, in this blog we will cover what you need to think about and give suggestion on how to theme a perfect Frozen Party…

Things to think about in advance…

  1. Venue and guest numbers.

Tip: For your first party don’t be too ambitious with guest numbers. Remember you do not want to get stressed out, if you are happy the children will be too!

Your party venue will depend on the number of guests attending.  I have given large parties of 30 or more guests in a hall, and also smaller parties in my own home.  There does seem to be a trend of inviting their entire class, but sometimes it is nice to celebrate with their closest friends, and smaller parties are far easier to manage and you can make them truly special.

Tip: If you would like a smaller party but are worried about playground politics simply send your child into school with small treats for their classmates on (or near) their birthday so no one feels left out.

 

  1. Date, Time and Duration.

Birthday parties are not necessarily held on their actual birthdays and are more commonly held at the weekend.  However I have had a couple of parties after school that have been fantastic, although you may need to leave work early to set it up.

Think about meal times when arranging your party.  It is common to have food at the party so if the party spans over lunch or tea-time ensure you have plenty of filling food, otherwise Frozen themed snacks will suffice.  But it is helpful to other parents if your make it clear that it is only snack food so they can plan their meals.

2-2 ½ hours is typical for a birthday party.  This should give enough time to have some games and have something to eat.  It is also not too long so younger guests will not get over-tied.

 

  1. Sending invites.

I recommend between 2 and 4 weeks in advance of the party. Any earlier then parties can be forgotten, if later plans may already be made.  Don’t forget to include:

  • Your child's name and birthday age.
  • Who to RSVP to
  • Your address and phone number.
  • The date, start and finish times of the party.
  • Are your guests expected to come as their favourite Frozen or Princess character?
  • How to get to the party venue.

 

  1. Party Food

As stated earlier, the types of food you can serve will depend on what time the party is. You can easily make your party food in a Frozen theme. You could simply label food e.g. a fruit kabab could be ‘magic wands or you can shape or colour foods using pastel blue, turquois, pink and white.

Here are some suggested Frozen themed party food ideas but also check out our Frozen Party for loads more ideas!

Snack party food

Meal party food

Cupcakes.  Use themed cupcake cases and/or decorate your cakes with Frozen turquois, Elsa blue and white and Anna Green, blue and gold.

Use name cards to give a theme to your food.  Fruit and Veg sticks can become ‘Sven snacks’, Popcorn can become ‘snowballs’, Pretzel sticks become ‘Olaf arms’ etc. Alternatively you can use quote like ‘we finish each other’s sandwiches’! Printable card labels can be found on our Frozen Pinterest page.

DIY build a snowman with marsh mallows, raisins and pretzel sticks.

Carrot and Cucumber sticks or crisps placed in Frozen Cups or Treat cups.

Frozen themed Jelly using blueberry jelly and white custard or blamounge.

Use food dye to dye Marshmallow Crispy Cakes to become Frozen Crispy Cakes

Using Frozen themed or coloured cups or treat bowls for carrot sticks, cucumber or other snack foods.

 

Pizza.  If you would like to theme the pizza, simply rearrange the toppings.  For example you can make a Frozen pizza by arranging toppings into snowflake shapes or Olaf!

Sandwiches – these can be cut into shapes using cookie cutters.

Chicken nuggets or Fries placed in Frozen cups/treat bowls.

Beef burgers can be the Trolls

Snow man pizza Easy to make Snow Man Pizza can be found on our pinterest page

 

 

 

Frozen Birthday cake

We have plenty of designs for Frozen Cakes on our  if you want to make one yourself, or if you know a good cake maker it is a great idea to take a picture of what you would like for them to use as a guide.  Supermarkets also stock themed birthday cakes.

 

 

  1. Party Games

It is easy to theme traditional party games.  Here are some ideas but you will find more on our  Pinterest page

Do you want to build a snow man?  Turn the birthday girl into a snow man by letting guest wrap them in toilet paper and sticking card eyes and nose on using double sided sticky tape.

Keeper of the Gate:  A blindfolded guest has to defend the gate by touching intruders as they pass.  If you have our Frozen Party in a Box there is an inflatable Dolphin to help the hero.

Pin the tail.  Included in our Party box is an Olaf themed version of this traditional game. But there are do-it yourself versions on our .

Frozen Pass the Parcel Frozen Pass the Parcel

Find the Troll game – A nice activity to do with your child before the party is to decorate rocks/stones to look like the trolls.  These can then be hidden in a party room for a game of ‘find the troll’.  The guest who finds the most trolls wins.

Snow ball relay – make a small obstacle course and give each team of spoon.  Place one bowl full of (for example) cotton wool balls at the start and an empty bowl at the end.  Each team mate picks up one ball on a spoon and has to negotiate the obstacles course without dropping the ball.  Winners are the ones who finish first and have the most balls in the finish bowls.

Odds and evens – name each side of the room, e.g. Anna is even and Elsa is the odd side.  Music plays.  When the music stops the guests choose a side of the room to stand.  The dice is then thrown, if it lands on an odd number the evens are out and vice versa.  An inflatable dice is included in our Frozen Party in a Box.

Musical Chairs – instead of using chairs, prior to the party cut out snowflakes (one per guest) that can be places on the floor.  When the music stops, guests have to stand on a snow flake.  Remove snowflakes (I suggest 2 at a time as guests are less likely to be upset), the guests left without a snowflake are out.

 

  1. Music play list

Handy to do in advance is make a party music list with your child. Mix well know tracks from the film with whatever your kids are listening to at the moment.  Don’t worry if the songs repeat. Check for explicit lyrics (a mistake I made once, luckily no-one noticed!) and ensure you pick the radio edit version!

 

  1. Party Plan

If you have bought our party in a box then you will have a suggested party Frozen-girlsday plan and lots of games instructions. If you have not got one, write yourself a little party plan and be sure to know which games you will be playing and how the games are played.

Tip: It is great to have a plan and it does make life easier, however, if the kids are having fun be relaxed and have fun with it. It does not matter if you do not get through all the games you have planned or they are not playing them exactly to rule as long as everyone is having fun.

 

  1. Have a safe party

Have think about how you will set rules and ensure guest safety. If there are places in the house or hall you do not want guests to go I suggest a notice on the door (or before stairs) stating ‘sorry, these

rooms are out of bounds today.  Have a great time at our party!’  Also have a plan about how you will deal with over excited children (for example have some calmer games on hand)

 

  1. Helpers are brilliant

You can’t be everywhere at once. It is best to have a helper, maybe someone to concentrate on the food whilst you entertain the children – play to your strengths.

 

On the Day of the party:

      • Make your house look presentable. I always remove items that have a lot of value or are sentimental to me just to be in the safe side.Frozen-Anna
      • Decorate the party rooms with Frozen themed banners, hanging decorations and balloons. Lay the table with the table cloth, plates, cups and napkins. If you have a door banner ensure it is on the door to show guests where the party is. If you do not have a door banner put balloons on the door or gate. If you have bought our Frozen Party in Box, you will have all these things, and the Blu Tack to hand!
      • Prepare food ready to go out on the table.

At the party – Top tips for a easy but brilliant party

      • Have your plan ready (but don’t panic if you stray from it, have fun!)
      • They are not listening!?! Try turning down or off the music, this will tend to get their attention. Failing that, pick someone with a loud voice to call ‘who wants to play another game? Then come and sit on the floor and I will explain…’
      • If they are not playing the party games how they are meant to be played look around, who is upset? If most are enjoying themselves let them finish but perhaps not give a prize saying ‘that was a good practice, but to win a prize play like…’
      • Don’t worry if you have not done all the games you wanted to play, it is a good sign that the kids have enjoyed what they have been doing.
      • Clean as you go – quickly picking up wrapping paper, food waste etc as you go makes the clean-up at the end so much easier.
      • Pictures are a great lasting memory but sometimes they get missed if you are busy. Having a Photo booth area can help ensure you get lasting memories of the party, and they make great thank you cards.
      • Getting party/loot bags out at the end of the party is a good way of letting he children and parents know that the party is winding down.

Have a fantastic party.  Creating memories for you and your child make doing a party yourself one of the best things you can do!
