Planning a winter birthday party?

While you may have visions of sweet teddy bear picnics in a park and three legged races in the sand, unfortunately winter parties are at the mercy of cold temperatures and unpredictable weather. This can sadly eliminate a lot of options - but the good news is 'fun' doesn't have to be one of them! Choose from the following winter birthday party ideas to make it an unforgettable celebration.

Invite a few friends around to build Lego. Purchase small kits (one for each child) and let them have at it. Prepare a few snacks to keep the kiddos fuelled while they play, and then send them home with their Lego as a party favour and a slice of cake. Very little preparation = my kind of party.

Don't underestimate the power of a speaker, fairy lights and a couple packets of glow sticks. Cost effective, easy and hours of fun. Have lots of water, finger food and a video camera on hand to capture all the hilarious dance moves. Footage will re-surface at 21st birthdays of course!

You can't go wrong with the timeless slumber party and movie night. Pop a big bowl of popcorn and assemble individual treat packs - easy! It's important to check the movie choice has the OK from the parents too. Be prepared for broken sleep and lots of giggles until the early hours of the morning.

Hire a local community or school hall and plan an indoor sports day - fashion medals and team bandanas for extra fun.

In addition to being indoors and away from the weather, party venues are great for when you want to combine a group of people that may not know each other. For example you might invite a few guests from your family, your child's daycare, sports team and neighbourhood kids etc. In my experience, it's a lot easier to plan and have everyone socialise in these environments. Some ideas are:

  • Movie Theatre
  • Rock Climbing
  • Trampoline Park
  • Arcade
  • Bowling
  • Laser Tag
  • Go Karts
  • Dance Class
