We have a 3 year old daughter, which means 3 things; we listen to the Frozen soundtrack in the car ALL the time, we run around after bath time with our ‘Elsa Cape’ towels and we needed a Frozen themed party for her 3rd birthday. I happily oblige to all these requests to satisfy my inner Disney…we’ve all got a bit of inner Disney, right?
I set out to hand make as much as I could for the party, here’s a little run down of what I came up with…
Each little Elsa got her own crown. These were made from gold mirror card. I simplified the original queen Elsa crown design to make a template and once cut out, this is stuck on a strip of card with double sided sticky tape. Each strip is wrapped around the child’s head to measure and stapled to size.
This target game provided lots of entertainment for little hands. Olaf was made from white card and stuck onto a large card stand, then his mouth and buttons were cut out for the target holes. My Mother-in-law got busy making a pile of wool snow pom poms (bless her) to throw at Olaf.
I went a bit pom pom-tastic for this party and became obsessed with making huge paper pom poms to hang from the ceiling. Sooo easy to make! I used this guide to learn how. Warning: Very Addictive.
For the cake topper, I bought a cardboard number 3 and covered it with iridescent glitter. The bunting is made from little blue card triangles stuck onto wire, all held up by two dowels, also dipped in glue and covered in glitter. A few punched out snowflakes (again, addictive and now most sheets of paper have a snow-flaked shaped hole in our house) add instant Frozen-ness.
For the party favours, I made ‘Do you wanna build a snowman’ Olaf craft kits. See below for a guide on how to make them if you’ve run out of party bag ideas. Very easy and judging from the pics I was sent from my Mum friends, much fun had by all making their own Olafs…
