Winter Party Plans? Think Snow!!!!

Or Snowman! Planning a party this winter? Or have kid with a winter birthday? Need some frosty ideas?

Well, I’m going all out for the snowman theme this season! I have start off by saying after so many years of marriage you start to collect stuff. Christmas rolls around and you look for something fresh, something different, so I pick up a few things here and there, and before I know it… I’ve got a collection! (How did that happen?) One year a friend gives me this really cute 15” Santa, well, he needed a friend for the mantle and 6 years later I have so many Santas I don’t have a vacant space anywhere in my house. The same thing happened with angels, 1 angel became 30 angels! And then the snowmen took over. This has gotten so out of control I now rotate my stock with theme years. Last year, all the Santas were out in full force. This year…hello Snowmen! And now with my addiction to Pinterest, all those fun ideas for treats and crafts and things to do for the kids are way over-the-top.

What to do? Live in a snowy area? Sledding, ice skating or snow tubing is so much fun! Get a pair of cozy slipper socks for each guest to jump into when they come in to warm up.

Have the hot chocolate ready with cool treat spoons.   Just melt some chocolate and pour onto colorful plastic spoons, add some mini marshmallows (or other fun treats) and let cool.

Now for some inside activities! Make or buy some ready-made gingerbread cookies ahead of time and then have the kids turn them into snowmen with white frosting and mini chips!

Another fun idea… have your guests make Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats Snowmen from Birthday Express! Rice Krispies Treatshttp://www.celebrateexpress.com/Kelloggs-Rice-Krispies-Treats-Snowman-Kit/85887/PartyItemDetail.aspx

Or how about some Nutterbutter snowmen! Just dip in melted white chocolate and decorate with mini chocolate chips and M & M’s.Nutterbutter snowmen

Have the kids take home their treats in these cute Snowman cookie boxes!

Make a winter wonderland with a bunch of white balloons all over the floor and build  snowmen out of balloons stuck together with tape. Draw faces and buttons with black marker.
