After scouring the internet for unique Snowman Party ideas we think we came up with a pretty killer list of things to do and favors to give, thanks to some amazing blogs that are helping spread the snowman love.

For activities we thought this snowman game was both active, silly and festive:

Perhaps you’ve played the “make a wedding dress out of toilet paper” game at a bridal shower or bachelorette party?? Consider this the kid friendly, winter version of that.

A craft is always a great addition to any birthday party and these two were our faves:

For favors we spotted these “snow man to-go” kits and knew they were the absolute perfect party favor for the Snowman Party.  This tutorial will walk you through how to hand-make everything or you can use our list of direct links below to buy your snowman decor online.  We can make you a custom thank you tag saying “Just Add Snow”… how cute is that!?

Hate to say it, but Frosty’s got nothin’ on our Snowman Party design:

Sure Frosty’s chubby and jolly, but we like to think of our snowman as a more classic and to be quite frank, healthier snowman… sorry Frosty.

Snowman party week is going to be filled with snowman shaped food, drinkable snowmen, snowman activities and snowman party favors.  By the end of it all, we hope you’re not too snowman’d out!

We’ll also be giving away a free digital “you print” invite good for any party in our shop and all you have to do is leave a comment on any post this week.  Stay tuned for more snowman fun!

If it’s snowing in your neck of the woods odds are there are plenty of snow related activities that fit with the penguin theme – just setting the kids free to play outside before coming in to enjoy their hot cocoa bar would work!  If you’re more like us over here in Seattle and you can’t count on the snow we’ve got a couple Pink Penguin Party ideas for you to work with including…

This penguin craft:

A penguin game:

A penguin pinata:

Is it just me or is the thought of taking a bat to that sweet face a little heartbreaking?  If the kids will have fun, then the adults will have to grin and bare it ;) .

And this penguin artwork (love the addition of the pink bow):

A fun decor touch would be to hang these penguin beach balls throughout the space, sending each child home with one as a party favor!

Some additional favor ideas include these hair clips which are darling and would match the Pink Penguin Party perfectly if you gave the penguin it’s own little pink bow.  However, if you’re not the craftiest of crafter you could buy pre-made clips like these we found on Etsy or scrap the clips and stick with this hot cocoa party favor.  Not only does it pair well with the hot cocoa bar we discussed yesterday, but it looks way cuter than the effort put into making it!

Budget friendly fun for all!  Get back here tomorrow to have a look at our week’s round up of all things Pink Penguin and find out if you won the digital invitation good for any party in our shop, all you have to do to enter is leave a comment on any post this week!
