Fun Winter Birthday Party Ideas

Planning a birthday party in winter may seem like a challenge. It’s true that summer party options are plentiful. Letting the kids run wild in the backyard…what could be easier?

But winter brings its own joys, and indoor parties can work at any time of year. And while DIY parties are fun, you can always outsource one or two things, like a party entertainer or the food or cake.

Don’t count out booking your party elsewhere, either: venues that host and plan parties can actually save you money (and time, of course) and are a no-mess, no-stress option, leaving you to simply enjoy the day with your child.

Here are some great ideas for DIY winter parties—and indoor parties at any time of year—for toddlers, kids, and tweens.

North Pole Party

A twist on the traditional winter wonderland party: bring in arctic creatures like polar bears, penguins, reindeer, and maybe even some imaginary ones like the Abominable Snowman!

Build igloos out of sugar cubes, play pin the tusk on the narwhal, and set up a hot cocoa bar with whipped cream, marshmallows and other toppings, sprinkles, and stir sticks made from Pirouette-style cookies or candy canes.

Loot-bag ideas: mini animal figurines, snow globes, hot-cocoa mix or kits

Baking Party

Kids love being allowed to make a mess, and eating what they’ve baked (or taking it home) is a sweet reward. Be sure to plan an activity while treats are baking so kids don’t lose steam. Providing chef’s hats and aprons for each kid are both practical and take care of party favours.

Worried about the mess, the space, or your ability to keep a gaggle of children safe in the kitchen? There are plenty of cooking schools or programs that specialize in cooking, baking, or even chocolate-making parties for kids. Some will even come to you.

Loot-bag ideas: baked treats, kid-size aprons and/or chef’s hats

 

Sledding Party

Take it to the snow with a tobogganing or skating party. Wear the kids out and they’ll be more than ready to chill with Thermoses of hot chocolate afterward. Plan for a hot meal or warm snacks when you head back inside.

Have fun making edible snowmen from powdered donut holes. And this party is a great excuse to bake a lopsided cake—on purpose! Frost with white icing and add some mini-figures and it’s a snowy sledding hill cake.

Loot-bag ideas: flying saucers, toques, gloves, cocoa mix

Sports Party

Have a little sports lover on your hands? Try a basketball- or football-themed party. Send playoff-game-style invitations, play mini versions of the games or break out an interactive video game.

chili bar with lots of DIY toppings is a fun food idea.

Loot-bag ideas: balls, snazzy athletic socks, reusable water bottles

Tumbling Party

When you add up the cups, the plates, the activities, the favours, the time spent organizing, shopping, cooking, and cleaning up, outsourcing your party can be so worth it! Do something special like a gymnastics, trampoline, or circus skills party.

Decorate-your-own leotards, or tie-dye them for take-home loot bag alternatives.

Loot-bag ideas: decorated leos, sparkly hair ties, tote bags, small gym towels, hula hoops
