Frozen Birthday Party!


I think every child (and parent) knows the lyrics to "Let It Go"!
The Frozen epidemic has hit our house too!
My daughter turning 3 wanted a Frozen Party and this is what I put together:

CAKE:
Since it's pretty much impossible to buy an Elsa or Anna doll right now without dropping some serious cash.  My first choice for a cake was out since it was an Elsa with a cake dress.  There isn't a Wilton cake pan for Frozen yet either- so that was out.  Then, I found this tutorial on YouTube: Olaf Cake.
In case you didn't recognize it, this is from Olaf's song "In Summer".
Thought it was simple enough so I gave it a go.  Didn't have time for all the fancy extras but I thought it turned out great! {Seriously, I probably only spend like 30-45 mins on decorating.  Most of the time was unwrapping all those Kit Kats} Little tip: It's easier to manipulate the gum paste when you rub a little vegetable shortening on it. 
Materials:
Cake Mix
Your fav buttercream frosting (and blue food coloring)
Kit Kats
Gum Paste
Pretzels
Orange Starburst (for nose)
Candy Eyes



 GAMES: 

~SNOWDOUGH~

My welcoming activity for kids to do {since they always show up at different times} was playing with snowdough.  Seriously this is HANDS DOWN the best playdoh recipe.  Stays soft forever!
You can find the recipe HERE


~PIN THE NOSE ON OLAF~
This idea is ALL over Pinterest.  Before you nix this idea cuz you "can't draw" then check out my Etsy shop cuz I will draw it for you. :)


~ SNOWBALL FIGHT WITH MARSHMALLOW~
 
I drew Marshmallow on a shower curtain.

Then, you can make these soft "snowballs" out of white pantyhose and polyfil.
Again, you can purchase Marshmallow and the snowballs in my Etsy shop if you don't want to make it yourself.

You can play this game a couple ways:
1) You have the kids stand on a line a distance from Marshmallow and have them try to hit him with a snowball (like Anna did in Frozen)

2) You display it in the room you will have the snowball fight. I put down a masking tape line in the middle of the room. I divided the kids into teams. Set the timer and said "Go!". When the time is up you see which side of the room has less snowballs, that is your winning team!

This was the funnest game!


Then, I had Elsa and Anna come for a visit. 
If you are local to the Mesa, AZ area then Fairytale Events is awesome!

I have one other original game idea but I can't show you because it is going to be featured on a blog!  Eek!  So.... stay tuned for that. :)

~SOME FOOD LABELS~

This label got a little cut off in the picture so I took another pic below.
I was going to have some Oreo Truffles here... but that didn't happen so I just put out some chocolate!


And the water cooler full of water bottles.


Pin It!
