Little girls everywhere are going crazy to have a big Frozen themed birthday party! I know my little girl had no doubt that’s the party she wanted to have for her 5th birthday! I started early and tried to plan as much as I could before hand. A Frozen birthday doesn’t have to be all licensed themed merchandise so keep your eyes open. After Christmas you can find TONS of decorations for a Frozen themed birthday party! I will show you how my little girls birthday bash was a very affordable frozen success.
First off, I made Rock Candy for my home made cake, which was Elsa and her ice castle. I found cake mix and icing for near nothing at Publix and used my little girls Frozen figurines to decorate it along with rock candy I made. (Note- It does take 7 days to make rock candy!)
DECORATIONS!!!! For the table decorations I went to Goodwill and found very cheap fabric and curtains that I used as table decorations. I broke out some Christmas decorations that I already had. I bought a blue plastic table cover to hang on the wall and got just two big packs of cotton balls (used coupons and got them for free) and thread them on string to hang so that they look like snow. Which if I had to do it all over again I would have just laid the table cloth down and glued the cotton calls on but I didn’t think of that till I was almost done. I went to posh tart parties for some awesome free printables that helped me with my banners, labels and signs. I was even able to print cupcake toppers so that I could make my own Frozen cupcakes.
DRESS UP CORNER!!! I went to the clearance fabric at Walmart for part of my dress up corner for the party so that the adults could join in on the dress up fun. I had went to Dollar Tree and bought a couple Tiaras and went through my little girls Frozen dress costumes that she had already had. If you don’t have any, look for after Halloween because I found many for really cheap. I had also found at One Creative mommy quotes from the movie and songs from Frozen that were in a bubble to print out and put on Popsicle sticks to add for fun! I did however use a Frozen Wall decorating kit for the backdrop for the photo corner. I did order a few Frozen decorations from Amazon which I found to be the cheapest place to get them which also saved myself gas and time running all over the place for them.
ACTIVITIES!!!! I wanted to plan a few games and activities for the kiddos without having to spend a fortune.. To save money I made my very own Piñata! I looked all over to buy one but they were so expensive (or should I say just not in my budget). The Piñata only cost about $4 but was a good 4 hours of my time. The kids hit it for a long time so maybe I didn’t have to make it so thick but regardless plan on spending some time on it.
I got some cardboard Olaf’s from Wal-Mart before they threw them away to make great use of. One was used for a snowball fight. I cut the bottom out of cups and put a balloon on the bottom, drop a marshmallow in it, pull back and aim. Some little kids just threw it in Olaf’s mouth which easier.
Had a table set up to build a snowman out of powdered doughnuts which was also a yummy treat and fun for all ages.
One of my Favorite parts of the party was Build a Snowman contest! We had two groups of children who was to turn two volunteers into Snowmen! It was really funny to see little ones try to do this game! All you need is toilet paper and paper cutouts or felt.
FOOD!!!! You don’t have to spend a whole lot on food for a party, just make a few little things. I bought ” Elsa’s Snowflakes” which was yogurt covered pretzels in snow flake shape after Christmas that didn’t expire for another 8 months which cost me only $1 for a big pack. I made Snowballs which was just cake balls dipped in white chocolate. I had “Olaf’s nose” which carrots dipped in dip, “Sven antlers ” which was just pretzels, and “Kristoff’s Ice” which was just blue jello. As you can see these are not very costly items but made for a fun menu! For the drinks I found very cheap clear fruit punch at Wal-Mart for the “Melted Snow” and then just blue Kool-Aid drinks for the “Glacier Juice.
Invitations!! I found mine really cheap on Etsy but if you don’t have it in your budget and are tech savy than go to picmonkey and download a Frozen picture you like from free wallpapers and create your very own!
No matter what you decide to do or how little your budget is, your little one can have a really awesome party and make memories just as if you spent tons of money on it. Even if its Family and Friends gathered around a home made cake dressed up in a blue table cloth from Goodwill!!
