Having trouble finding winter birthday party ideas? Here are a few Ideas:

Let’s first imagine we aren’t in a pandemic, or you're celebrating with close family. 

(1) Get together with friends and design cakes. You could decorate a snowman cake, a cute penguin cake, or a gingerbread man (or girl) cake. 

(2) A hot cocoa bar would be splendid for a festive winter party. You should add whipped cream, marshmallows, candy canes, peppermints, and sprinkles to your bar. 

(3) Create a festive, wintery photo booth with your friends to keep this memory. Use a winter wonderland background, a gingerbread land background or just a solid wintery color. 

(4) Watch your favorite movie! If you can't choose one, then do a movie binge watch! 

(5) Games: Have a paper snowball fight, play winter-themed charades game and have a dance party!

(6) Winter crafts are also a great idea!

Now for our Covid-friendly options:

Since we can’t get into that much contact, you can do a zoom call. 

(1) Play music, dress up, and have a virtual dance party!  

(2) A Pajama party with your friends. You can even watch a movie together on Zoom.

(3) It will take a little prep work, but you could deliver winter-themed craft packets to everyone before the party and do the crafts online together! 

(4) Lastly, don’t forget goodie bags--deliver winter themed masks (or solid masks to decorate together!), a snack - maybe popcorn or candy - and cute hand sanitizer.
