A year ago, as we wrapped up my daughter’s 5th birthday party, the Cupcake Fest, we chatted about what the theme might be for her 6th birthday party. When the idea of a sledding party came up I said “sure!” I mean a sledding party in early February seemed reasonable. Little did we know that this would be the year that winter did not arrive in Toronto. But, as they say “the show must go on” so we pushed ahead with our sled party plans and crossed our fingers that snow would come. And it did!
Last week I shared how we made our colour your own invitations. The creation of the invitation also involved determining the guest list. This one is always hard with school aged kids – who you invite is entirely up to you.
Then I used a large roll of paper, and cut it the length of the opening.
Finally I drew an icicle shape on a sheet of paper (the IKEA big roll of paper).
Just cut along the lines and hang with tape. Icicles everywhere.
Thank you for linking up to The Outdoor Play Party!! I LOVE this idea for a birthday party. You are so right that kids just want a chance to play at a party. We try to make some of the items in our gift bags too.

What a fun party & it goes to show that you can have any theme you want, no need to be restricted by the usual resources out there. As Rebekah said, thanks for linking up this week, Kierna
This is awesome! What a fun birthday party. We are thinking of doing a hiking party for our four year old. So many people have been throwing around ideas for us but nothing says “Sam” like a hiking party. But we will see. I just hate planning a party around the weather. Great ideas, thanks for linking them up to the outdoor play party.
So did you do the cake a presents first in the house and then go to the hill to sled? I am wondering the logistics of this all as I am trying to host one of these myself this winter. thanks!
