Frozen Party Ideas
Ana, Elsa and Olaf took the world by storm when Frozen was released, and has led to an absolute avalanche (sorry, sometimes I can’t help the bad puns) of Frozen birthday parties!! For a really cool party, here are some very easy, and highly effective, Frozen party ideas!
When planning your Frozen party, a good place to start is with you cake. This is your centre piece around which you will build the rest of your party! For some the cake is a fun project to do themselves, for others it’s a headache best outsourced to a professional. Which ever way you decide to go, the guest of honour is guaranteed to love their cake!
Next some snacks need organising, and there is a world of possibility for Frozen themed snacks!
Some blue jelly chopped into “ice bergs” makes a fun, very simple and cheap treat that the kids will love!
Another sure fire crowd pleaser, even for the picky eaters, are some snow flake sandwiches. Fill them with some old time favourites, like Nutella or jam! (Thanks http://ashleemarie.com/frozen-birthday-party/ for this delicious sandwich idea)
How delicious do these yummy snow flake popcorn balls look? Here’s how you can make your own:
· ½ c. popcorn kernels
· 3 tbsp. canola oil
· ½ c. sugar
· 4 tbsp. butter
· 5 c. mini marshmallows
· ¼ tsp. salt
· ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
· 1 c. M&Ms
· sprinkles or peanuts (optional)
1. Place a heavy bottom dutch oven or saucepan over medium heat. Add the oil and popcorn and stir the kernels so that they are evenly coated. When the oil becomes hot and sizzles, add the sugar. Shake the pot or pan until the first few kernels pop. Place the lid on top and continue gently shaking back and forth while the remaining kernels pop. Once the popcorn stops, remove from heat and place into a large mixing bowl to cool.
2. Next, in a small saucepan over medium heat, add the butter and marshmallows. Stir continuously until the marshmallows are melted. Remove from heat and add the salt and vanilla extract.
3. Pour over the popcorn and coat evenly. Add M&Ms, sprinkles or nuts.
4. Cover your hands with a light layer butter or coconut oil. Form the popcorn mixture into 3" balls. Set them on a piece of wax (or parchment) paper to cool completely, about 30 minutes.
-Substitute butter for coconut oil (and omit chocolate candies) to make this recipe dairy-free.

These snowball strings are a fun DIY activity to do with the kids before the party that looks absolutely fantastic! Make it look like it’s snowing inside! Grab some thin cotton thread or fishing wire, pop a needle on the end, and thread cotton balls of varying size along the strings length.

Next up; some activities to keep those guests of your entertained! Here is an all time favourite of mine, not just for a party, but for my kids to play in anything! For a party just make a larger batch.
Sparkle Snow Recipe
· About 900g of corn starch/ corn flour
· One can of shaving cream
· Peppermint Extract (optional)
Work the corn flour into the shaving cream – it takes a bit of mixing to mix the corn flour into the shaving cream, but once you do, you will be amazed with the results. It is incredibly soft, fluffy, and moulds into ‘snowballs’ and snowmen so well!! It will amaze all your guests, young and old alike.
Thanks http://www.growingajeweledrose.com/2012/11/frosty-fluff-snow-play.html for the direction to make this incredible recipe.
Once the snow play is finished, how about a little arts and craft activity time? Before the day, make up some Frozen shaped Salt Dough ornaments.
Salt dough recipe:
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup fine table salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2/3 cup chilled water
Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Pour in oil. Gradually add water, stirring mixture with a wooden spoon until combined. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead to make a smooth ball. Roll out and cut into desired shapes. Bake for 2 1/2 hours or until firm and dry.
Set up a little craft station with everything the kids need to decorate their ornaments. Paint, glitter, stickers, whatever you would like.
This is a really fun activity that lets the kids unleash their creative side, gives them something to take home at the end, and perhaps most importantly, gets them sitting down, still, and relatively quiet – at least for a little while!
