Frozen Party Ideas
With fun characters and memorable songs, the movie Frozen has captured the imaginations of girls and boys everywhere. If your child loves Elsa, Anna, and Olaf, host their next birthday in Arendelle and celebrate with a Frozen-themed birthday party.
Frozen Party Invitations
For a Frozen birthday party, your invitations should evoke a wintry atmosphere. Snowflakes, snowmen, and the color blue are all easy inspirations for your invitation. You may want to invite your guests to come dressed as their favorite Frozen character. To get your guests in the Frozen spirit, consider sending one of these fun Frozen invitations:
- Place 3 marshmallows, some pretzel sticks, and candy in a plastic bag with an invitation that says “Do you want to build a snowman?” and include all your party information.
- Print up movie tickets for each guest and invite them to a special interactive showing of Frozen. (This one is especially appropriate if you plan on showing the movie at the party.)
- Invite your guests to your child’s “Coronation Day” and include a picture of your child in her royal finest.
Frozen Party Decorations
Frozen decorations should consist largely of blue and white, to represent the snow and ice. Purple makes a fun accent color, and glitter will add some sparkle. Lacy tablecloths will already look like snowflakes, or you can use a blue tablecloth and sprinkle some plastic snowflakes on top.
Create your own snowflakes by folding and cutting paper so that no two are alike. These will look pretty hanging from the ceiling or in the windows. You can create an Olaf out of white balloons and colored construction paper, or cut him out of poster board.
Frozen Party Activities
There are so many Frozen-themed activities that it will be hard to choose just a few for your party! If you’d like, you can show the movie at your party. Otherwise, considering having a Frozen sing-along, allowing the children to get up to sing and act out their favorite songs. Some other fun kids activities include:
- Make your own snow out of hair conditioner and baking soda. The snow can then be molded into snowmen and other shapes.
- Create blizzard jars by filling empty plastic bottles or mason jars with hot water, glitter glue, dish soap, and more glitter. Seal them tightly and shake to watch the blizzard.
- Make princess wands, using plastic wands, snowflakes, glitter, ribbons, and pipe cleaners.
- Have a “snowball” fight using small Styrofoam balls or rolled up white socks.
Frozen Party Games
When it comes to party games, there are plenty of Frozen games to play. Consider playing some “frozen” spin-offs of classic games, such as Freeze Tag, Freeze Dance, and Pin the Nose on Olaf. You can also play Simon Says having different characters lead the fun. Here are some other fun games to play at your Frozen party:
- Snowball Toss: Set out several buckets, each with an assigned point value. Have the children toss “snowballs” (Styrofoam balls or socks) into the buckets while trying to score the most points.
- Melt the Ice: Before the party, freeze small prizes into ice cubes. Each child gets an ice cube with the goal of being the first to make theirs melt enough to get to the prize. The winner gets a larger prize to keep.
- Have a Frozen scavenger hunt by using quotes from the movie to direct children to the next clue, i.e. “For the first ___ in forever” would direct them to the “time” or a clock. Set out two different routes and have teams compete to see who gets to the prize first.
Frozen Party Food and Drinks
Having your party food match your theme makes eating it even more fun. Some delicious Frozen-themed treats you can have at your party are “snowball” donut holes, pretzel rods dipped in blue candy melts, and Reindeer Mix made of cereal, pretzel sticks, cheese crackers, and blue and white candy. Rock candy is another fun treat that looks like ice crystals. You can also serve frozen grapes and blueberries for a cold treat.
Don’t forget to use the song lyrics as inspiration. Blue Jell-O can be used to make ice blocks, or fill a punch bowl with blue Jell-O and float Olaf on top, enjoying his summer dreams. Make sandwiches that are cut in half, with a sign saying “We finish each other’s sandwiches.” And don’t forget Elsa and Anna’s love of chocolate candy.
Set up a drink station with a hot chocolate bar, a slush station (shaved ice with flavored syrups), and “Melted Snow” water. You can label each water bottle individually, or fill a clear container with water and float “snowman” parts in it.
Frozen Birthday Cake / Frozen Cupcakes
There are many ways to make a Frozen cake. For a Frozen birthday party, an ice cream cake can be a fun twist on the theme, or you can make a layer cake with each layer being a different shade of blue, purple, and white.
To decorate, you can use pre-made sugar snowflakes, or use a loose frosting or ganache to create “icicles” of frosting dripping over the sides of the cake. Mold an Olaf figure out of fondant or marzipan, or buy a Frozen cake topper to complete the look.
If you’d like to make a shaped cake, you can use layers of cake, ice cream cones, and candy to create an ice castle. Or make a pull-apart princess gown out of cupcakes, decorated with a tiara and other accessories.
Frozen Party Favors and Goody Bags
Make sure to send your guests home with something to remember the day. A tiara and princess wand is always a great ending to a Frozen-themed birthday party. For some other movie-inspired ideas, consider some of the following ideas:
- A box of Hershey Kisses labeled “a kiss to melt the ice”
- Glitter slime or troll slime, made from glue, water, borax, and food coloring
- A hot cocoa “cone” filled with cocoa mix, mini-marshmallows, crushed candy canes, and instructions
- An “In Summer” bag filled with sunscreen, sunglasses, and a fun drink umbrella.
If your child is a Frozen fan, they are sure to appreciate a Frozen-themed birthday party. Even in the middle of summer, you can have a snowball fight, make your own snow, and play plenty of Frozen-themed games. With some delicious Frozen treats, and a spectacular cake, you’ll have a birthday party no one will soon forget.
