Frozen Birthday Party and FREE Printables!

Just like every other little girl in the world, this year my Ada just HAD to have a Frozen birthday party.
What kind of mother would I be if I didn't comply?

So here is my girl's Frozen Party…
Complete with FREE PRINTABLES!!

You can use a photo editing program to add your text like Photoshop or Picasa
(free Picasa download HERE)

And THANK YOU to my amazing bestie Candace for your help on those.
You're my HERO!!!


For decorations I used those cheap plastic party tablecloths to make the kitchen more "wintry white" and cover up my dark wood cabinets and not to mention for super easy cleanup with our pint size party goers.

I hung plastic icicles from the bottom of the cabinets underneath (found at Hobby Lobby… thank heavens they put their Christmas things out in August! And it was all 50% off too! WhaaHooo!).

 photo IMG_8801_zps3b80d90d.jpg


And used big puffy snowflake stickers to hold it all together (also found at Hobby Lobby, I'm pretty sure they were actually window decals but whatever.)
And I had snowflake cupcake wrappers, but they were too big and my cupcakes just fell straight through them.  Mental note to check that before the party next time.

Striped paper straws found at Hobby Lobby

Do You Wanna Build A Snowman Favors- with one extra large. one large and two small marshmallows, Pretzel sticks, m&m's (brown, regular size), chocolate chips (mini), and orange Mike&Ike's for the nose so our little party goers could build their very own delicious snowman at home.

 photo IMG_8642.jpg photo IMG_8644.jpg photo IMG_8780.jpg

 photo IMG_8787.jpg

I bought one box (movie theatre size, found in candy section of grocery store) of Mike&Ikes and made 20 favor bags and still had plenty orange ones left in the box for more.

Of course I made the favor tag;

We told everyone they could dress up for the party

 photo IMG_8614.jpg

I worked for a week straight sewing Ada a one of a kind Elsa costume.
We're going to Disney this year and I want the girl's to be able to dress up like princesses without wearing the expensive, yet cheaply made polyester princess costumes. So I had the genius idea to make Ada's Elsa costume with a separate shirt and skirt. The shirt is comfy cotton, short sleeved so she won't be hot outside in Florida, and the cape is detachable (with velcro). She can wear the long fancy skirt to her party and Halloween, but a short tutu and comfy leggings to Disney.

This is her and her cousin both as Elsa

 photo IMG_8615.jpg

 photo IMG_8622.jpg


My E came as Anna

 photo IMG_8624.jpg

My Mr. was Oaken

 photo IMG_8639.jpg

"Hoo Hoo! Big summer blowout!"

And Uncle Kevan and Aunt Brooke were the King and Queen.

 photo IMG_8636-1.jpg


 photo FrozenKingampQueen.jpg

Seriously nailed it!

Baby Kenzie was a troll

 photo IMG_8731.jpg photo IMG_8640.jpg


We had little Elsa and Anna crowns for all of our little girl party goers,
and Sven antlers for the boys.

 photo IMG_8608.jpg

Sorry, can't share the crowns with you because the owner requested me not too.
BUT… Never fear my dears, there are LOTS of other places to find free crown downloads!

There is a pretty Elsa crown download HERE

Theres a super fancy glitter Elsa and Anna crown HERE

You can create your own using this free clipart download HERE

There is a cute download and fun tutorial of an Elsa crown HERE

And this site has 2 pretty and free downloads for an Elsa and an Anna crown on her Frozen Party post found HERE

And also HERE is an easy Elsa crown and Sven antler template that they traced onto craft foam and cut out. EASY PEASY!

For the ones I used, I took "blue" and "opal" glitter glue and traced the edges of Ada's crown to make it shimmer and fancy it up so it didn't look so flat.

 photo IMG_8796_zps6c4f00c2.jpg photo IMG_8795_zps16ebb99d.jpg

 photo IMG_8620.jpg

It was easier to tie the crowns and antlers on instead of cutting out and taping strips of paper together like you see in some places. I just punched a hole in both edges of the crown and pulled a length of tulle through them like so:

 photo Free_Frozen_Printables_Elsa_Crown_howto_zps87e8b146.jpg

Worked great!
I get the small rolls of tulle that you can get at any craft store and in the craft section at Walmart.
Just FYI, the glittery tulle leaves glitter "fairy" dust EVERYWHERE!
Lets just say your whole house will SPARKLE if you choose to use it!


We played with Snow Dough.
Made with lotion, baking soda and lots and lots of glitter that my sweet Miss May helped me make.
Recipe found HERE on http://www.growingajeweledrose.com


 photo IMG_5472.jpg photo IMG_5476.jpg

I used "disco" glitter found at Hobby Lobby

 photo IMG_8797_zps5e7202f8.jpg

I also sprinkled in bit of extra fine glitter in "blue".
It gave the "snow" a blue tint like the glaciers in Alaska.

The "snow" was extra awesome because it's kind of cold when you touch it, moldable, and completely fun!

 photo IMG_8631.jpg photo IMG_8630.jpg photo IMG_8634.jpg photo IMG_8632.jpg photo IMG_8633.jpg photo IMG_8638.jpg photo IMG_8635.jpg

When they were done, I stuck the Snow Dough straight into clear treat bags (favor bags) tied with a piece of tulle so they could take it home with them.
I even printed a little tag and stuck it to the outside of the bag so parents knew what the "goop" inside was.
So sorry, no picture, this part of the party was kind of crazy!
BUT…

Free Frozen "Snow Dough" label Printable HERE (I used these Avery clear address labels). It really looked like I had the bags specially printed, but nope, just clear labels!
What you get:

 photo ScreenShot2014-08-28at13037PM_zps8b81fe1e.jpg



Then we played "Pin the Nose on Olaf"

 photo IMG_8648.jpg photo IMG_8649.jpg


I found a picture of Olaf and used it to draw a bigger version on a length of painting paper (easel and paper roll from Ikea)

 photo IMG_5480.jpg


Free Frozen Olaf Printable HERE (I used as a guide to draw my big Olaf, but also great for printing and just displaying character pictures around your party)

To keep with our "Frozen" we had an ice cream topping bar, because what's more frozen delicious than ice-cream?
Nothing I tell ya!


 photo IMG_8606.jpg

Toppings included:
M&M's, mini chocolate chips, gummi bears, Reeses pieces, Heath Bar toppins (found in baking section by chocolate chips), Mike&Ikes, Snowcaps, chocolate sprinkles, rainbow sprinkles, chopped peanuts, chocolate syrup, caramel syrup, Magic Shell and, of course, maraschino cherries.

 photo IMG_8613.jpg


 photo IMG_8704.jpg

Instead of regular bowls I used Keebler waffle cone bowls found at any grocery store.
It was the perfect size sundae serving for the kids.


 photo IMG_8705.jpg

Then they got to add whatever delicious toppings they wanted.

 photo IMG_8706.jpg

PS- "Magic Shell" was the biggest hit!


She declared this to be "da greatest birfday ever!"

    1. What an awesome Daddy!!
      The hat was a souvenir straight from Azerbaijan. I know, not much help...but, it's a prayer hat that, if I remember correctly, is called a taqiyah cap. I bet you could find one online, maybe eBay...
      Best of luck with your search and your daughter's party my dear!

  10. Thank you for all the great ideas! You did an amazing job. I'm looking forward to my daughters 5th birthday this weekend .

    Thank you

    Replies
    1. Lisa, thank you so much! I made my snow dough about 3 days before the party. I know what we had here leftover stayed good for about 5 play times (within 2 weeks) before it just got too crumbly. I wouldn't premake it more than 1 week ahead of time to be safe. As long as you store it in an airtight container until party day, you'll be good to go! Happy party day and best of luck my dear!!

  25. This is the best I have ever seen. What an amazing family you have to get into the spirit of Frozen, or anything I would bet. My only remaining in the area grandchild who still loves Frozen is my almost 5 year old grandson. I have a granddaughter who just had her 10 birthday, a Frozen Swim Party, but it was in Wyoming. The Olaf I am stealing to make a felt set as the same grandson is slightly special needs and I am making sets for him of things he loves! Bless you and your fun family.

  42. Thanks for the free printables! Looks like it was a fun well put together party, good job Mama! I'm using the water labels and the olaf game for a Winter 100 land party at my son's school. The 100th day of school combined with a winter wonderland party. I'm trying to give an example how a winter party doesn't need to be a Christmas party and still be loads of fun! We are making snow too, and I'm using your labels for their tupperware containers they get to take home.
