Moms of winter babies, we feel your birthday party pain. Kids with summer birthdays get outdoor extravaganzas to celebrate their days, but cold weather calls for some more creative party planning. Here are a few ideas to celebrate your little one's special day. Some embrace the holiday spirit and some are filled with their own inside entertainment.
All Things Glitter – The focus of this theme is the crafts the kids can do while they are celebrating. Cutting out snowflakes covered in glitter, spraying various colors of glitter on Styrofoam shaped like trees, cupcakes with glitter frosting, pine cones covered in gold glitter and made into an ornament (if the party is before Christmas), etc. A handmade craft from your child is the perfect party favor, and it looks even better covered in glitter!
Arctic Animals – This one is pretty self-explanatory. Get into a conversation with your child and find out their favorite winter animals and use it as a jumping off point for their party. There's something about animal characters that put a smile on almost any child's face. Penguins and polar bears are good choices for a kids party. Or boys may like having the arctic fox as a unique theme for their big day. You can even suggest that guests who want to bring gifts can keep with the animal theme.
For take-home party favors, you can paint a snowman on pretty much anything. You can have the kids bring home personalized coffee mugs for their parents with a snowman face painted on them. This party will be a hit with all ages.
If you take the time to research a little bit, you can find plenty of ideas to make a Winter party a big hit. The kids won't even miss the swimming pool with an indoor wonderland that celebrates this chilly season.
