It can be difficult to throw a birthday party in the winter. It is one of the busiest times of the year, and the weather is normally cold and dreary. Thankfully, there are still lots of creative and fun things you can do for a winter birthday party. From visiting a warm venue to bundling up and heading outside, we have lots of great birthday party ideas for winter. Here are 5 birthday party ideas that your child will love.
Invest In a Pool Party Package
Lots of children dislike being outside when the weather is cold, but there are lots of indoor birthday party options. A pool party is a popular choice all year around, especially if your child loves swimming. Speak to your local swimming centre to find out more about their pool party packages.
Bookan Animal Show
If your child is an animal lover then an animal show may be the perfect birthday party. If you are looking for birthday party ideas in Essex then Zoo4You is certainly worth considering. They have a large range of exotic animals including Meerkats, Owls and lots of different snakes and amphibians. The children get the opportunity to learn more about each individual animal, such as its natural diet and habitat. Children can even hold and stroke the animals and feeding time can always be exciting!
Go Ice Skating
Ice skating is fun in the winter but also in the summer. You can choose from indoor and in the winter, outdoor rinks. Check online to see if there are any ice skating rinks open in your local area, and see if they offer children’s party packages. Some ice rinks offer birthday party packages that include food, drinks and a cake.
Throw a Themed Party
Themed parties are still incredibly popular, and winter is the perfect time for these. When the weather is so cold outside, putting on a themed party will leave special memories. From Frozen to animals, there are lots of different themes to consider!
Take the Party Outdoors
If you know that there will be snow on the day of the birthday party, you can embrace the weather and take the party outside. Most children love sledging, tobogganing and building a snowman, and you can even arrange some games for everyone to play together. Simply dig a hole in the snow and let the children try to throw snowballs into the hole, or bury a waterproof plastic box in the snow with snacks inside, and then let the children answer trivia questions to earn a clue as to where it is.
This party idea may seem simple, but most children will love it and it is great for parents on a budget. Of course there is always the dry ski slope idea, kids love the opportunity to learn to ski or just for tobogganing, always a winner.
From animal shows to Frozen themed parties, there are lots of great birthday party ideas for winter. No matter what your budget is and what your child’s interests are, with a little imagination, you will be able to find the perfect party for your child.
