Anyone have good ideas for a Frozen-themed birthday party for a soon-to-be 5 year old girl? There will be boys and girls there, and it will likely be at a park, so loads of tiaras and frozen dessert treats are probably out. I’ve gotten as far as “track down appropriate plates and napkins”. Unfortunately this is occurring about 4 days after we move, so I’d like to keep it somewhat low key. I’ll need to spend time digging for my cupcake pans…

Other than doing a frozen themed cake/cupcakes, I would do a Frozen themed piñata, since it is being held at a park! The playground equipment will be entertainment enough really! If all the kids are familiar with the movie and the songs, you could have them each do a line from one of the songs as a game! I am glad we are not doing a Frozen themed party! I would be at a loss of ideas for games!

I’d say a snowball fight, but it’s too hot for that. Maybe a waterballon fight. Or could rent a fake-snow machine, though I’m not sure the cost of those or if a permit would be needed for use in a park. So may not be worth it for a 5-year-old party. (And I don’t know what it’s made of, so may melt anyway.)
Pin/tape the tail on Sven or the carrot [nose] on Olaf. (Dunno if they make either of these, but could poss make it.)
Could get rocks to paint faces on, kinda like the trolls (Kristoff’s family).

I was thinking of pin the nose on Olaf too!
TwoSapphiresParticipant1 week, 1 day ago
I love the ideas of Pin the Nose on Olaf and snow cones! My boys would love this.
Also, in the interest of keeping it simple I’d probably buy cupcakes and just get Frozen cupcake toppers to stick in them. (Just thinking if I were throwing a party right after I moved!)
My boys would love a Frozen party!
You could also do a “build a snowman” craft with marshmallows, etc.

Thanks all for the great ideas! I found these
for a fake snowball fight, but am torn on whether to buy them. The “snowballs” are not cold, but they are rough like snow and crunch like snow, and are apparently very light so they don’t hurt if you get hit with them. They are kind of pricey for a party game, although I suppose we could continue to use them after. All the people who reviewed them thought they are fantastic though. My concern is whether the other parents will be annoyed with an “aggressive” game. A lot of people around here don’t let their kids use even water pistols or anything similar, so I don’t know how they’d react to full on snowball war. What do you think?
Pin the nose on Olaf is a good idea. I’ll have to look into that. As for cupcakes, I’d love to buy them, but they’d have to be nut free and egg free due to allergies. That would mean going to a super fancy vegan place where I’d sure they’d cost an arm and a leg.

I also thought about snow cones, but like ice cream, they’d melt.
Yea, that’s pretty pricey. I scrolled through the “customers who bought this item also bought” and found this for same product, but smaller pack: http://www.amazon.com/Play-Visions-Snowtime-Snowballs-30-Pack/dp/B00HZS6XRO/ref=pd_sim_t_14?ie=UTF8&refRID=1NWY9ZBDCA2BT3AM3X6E
-balloons with snowflakes on them (http://www.amazon.com/Single-Source-Party-Supplies-Snowflake/dp/B00991P2DG/ref=pd_sim_t_31?ie=UTF8&refRID=1NWY9ZBDCA2BT3AM3X6E) (http://www.amazon.com/Light-Latex-Balloon-Falling-Snowflakes/dp/B005IQS7F6/ref=pd_sim_t_61?ie=UTF8&refRID=1NWY9ZBDCA2BT3AM3X6E)
-rock candy/cotton candy (http://www.amazon.com/Candy-Crystal-Sticks-Cotton-12-Count/dp/B005HF09EK/ref=pd_sim_t_7?ie=UTF8&refRID=1NWY9ZBDCA2BT3AM3X6E). (I’m not a fan of rock candy [too hard], but blue cotton candy could work. Though parents may not be thrilled with all the sugar.)
-snowflake shaped cookie cutter (but that would require baking and finding an allergy friendly recipe.)
-blue & white candy (http://www.amazon.com/Aqua-Blue-Swirl-Pops-Case/dp/B004NB79VU/ref=pd_sim_t_57?ie=UTF8&refRID=1NWY9ZBDCA2BT3AM3X6E) (http://www.amazon.com/Raspberry-Sticklettes-White-Petite-Sticks/dp/B0084B27DU/ref=pd_rhf_dp_s_cp_5?ie=UTF8&refRID=003P15VJQGPFV8NZE5W0) (http://www.amazon.com/Blueberry-Sassy-Spheres-White-Striped/dp/B00BWRXFPM/ref=pd_rhf_dp_s_cp_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=003P15VJQGPFV8NZE5W0)
Don’t know if you plan on doing Goody-bag party favors, but could fill with Frozen themed temporary tattoos, stickers, these things or something similar (http://www.amazon.com/Frozen-Olaf-Charms-Jewelry-Project/dp/B00JH78YCI/ref=pd_sim_t_62?ie=UTF8&refRID=1NWY9ZBDCA2BT3AM3X6E), erasers, pencils (http://www.amazon.com/MUSGRAVE-PENCIL-CO-INC-MUS1063D/dp/B0041L3S3K/ref=pd_sim_t_67?ie=UTF8&refRID=1NWY9ZBDCA2BT3AM3X6E), and attach the Goody-bag to a balloon.
If you decide to do cupcakes, could use these: http://www.amazon.com/Snowflake-Cupcake-Liners-Baking-Standard/dp/B00J447XGM/ref=pd_sim_t_85?ie=UTF8&refRID=1NWY9ZBDCA2BT3AM3X6E
This is a cute idea, but like the 3-star review says, not sure how you’d stick it all together: http://www.amazon.com/Wanna-Build-Snowman-Candy-Party/dp/B00JYFN4QO/ref=pd_sim_t_89?ie=UTF8&refRID=1NWY9ZBDCA2BT3AM3X6E
If you’ll be in an area where you can hang things, such as the Pinata, could also hang some snowflakes.
Haha! Could get a wagon and decorate it like Kristoff’s sled and have someone dress up like Sven and have the kids take turns getting pulled around.

Wow! Great ideas! Thanks for all the research, PokeyNinja!

You could use latex balloons (Blue and white or the ones with the snowflakes) and put small pieces of candy in them and have the kids pop them! I would not use darts at the park, but you could give each kid a balloon filled with candy and have them sit on them to pop them!
embraParticipant1 week ago
OOO that’s a good idea! I wonder whether balloons would pop like a traditional pinata if the kids swung a wiffle ball bat at them? I was thinking I might be able to make a pinata out of paper mache, but this would be way easier!
MomkeyParticipant1 week ago
Gotta try it! I Plan to do it like a dart board at our party, but ours is in our back yard!
PokeyNinjaParticipant6 days, 23 hours ago
You’re welcome. And just to be clear, I’m in no way saying to buy all that stuff from Amazon. Maybe some of the things that qualify for prime/free shipping, but would def check local party stores (such as PartyCity) first. Was mostly just trying to give a few ideas.
Candy in a balloon is a cute idea, though I would get irritated trying to get the candy in the balloons. Haha. I don’t think a balloon would pop from being hit with at bat, unless the bat had spikes on it. Could blow up a balloon and use it as a mold for paper mache Pinata. Don’t know about closing and hanging the Pinata though. (And paper mache is SOOO messy.)
I think the only problem with balloons would be some people may be allergic to latex. (Sorry if that just burst any bubbles)

I was at a children’s book store the other day and a little girl was having a “Frozen” themed party. When I got there, they were playing a game. An adult was dressed in a blue dress and had her hair braided like Queen Elsa. She had a “snowball” (small white ball) and had the kids sit in a circle with the birthday girl in the middle. The birthday girl closed her eyes and “Elsa” gave one of them the snowball. The girl had to guess who had the snowball, and then that person went in the middle. The kids were anywhere from 3-5 years old. The birthday girl had a tiara on.
