An Ice-Skating Frozen Party

It’s finally spring here in the south.  The azaleas are blooming, the sun has been out and the kids are itching to get outside!  But a couple of weekends ago we celebrated the end of winter, and a friend’s birthday with an ice-skating Frozen party at our local ice-skating rink.

Jayna, Loo Loo and I bundled up {even though it was in the 70′s outside} and they laced up their skates for Jayna’s first ice-skating experience!  I can’t remember the last time I skated, so it’s probably a blessing in disguise that I am too preggo to skate….insert Loo Loo here!

Jayna did really well.  The rink had these PVC pipe contraptions that served as on-ice walkers for those young and old.  A must-have for first time skaters.  Although Loo claimed she knew how to skate, she sure did “support” Jayna a lot on the walker!!

Once Jayna saw the birthday girl getting confident in her skating, Jayna decided to ditch Loo Loo and go skate with her friend….with a side of socializing in the middle of the rink!  Jayna tells me she cannot wait  to go skating again, and wants to try it without the walker!

After about an hour of skating, the kids retired to the party room for an adorable Frozen party.  All of the food and drinks were super simple, but thanks to some creative tags and color usage…it all tied into the Frozen theme.

Since this wasn’t my party, I don’t know where all of the labels came from, but I found this awesome site over at Homeketeers that has a bunch of Free Frozen Party printables, if you are looking for some.

As for Frozen party favors, the boys got funny glasses and mustaches, and the girls all got princess crowns/clip on earrings/ jewelry.  And all the kids had bubbles and Frozen coloring sheets at the table.  Another idea, especially for the boys, would have been to make the Olaf pencil toppers/finger puppets.

What a fun and easy party, with a Frozen Theme that you just can’t beat!
