We invited a few 2-3 year old friends over for some hot cocoa, snacks and crafts. I set up a table in the living room for the children to eat at. I turned some milk bottle into snowmen wearing felt scarves and black buttons. I glued a snowman gift tag onto a clear straw and added a snowflake sticker to his hat. The kids loved them! The favors were placed in a wooden sled behind the table and a silver tree branch held snowflake frames with the quote "If snowflakes were kisses I'd send you a blizzard.".
I served all of the food in the dining room so I kept it to a fun b&w color scheme. We had a hot cocoa bar with lots of toppings to choose from. The hot cocoa was in the crockpot and was easy to throw together the morning of the party. I also served popcorn, pretzels, baby carrots, s'mores on a stick, powdered donuts and cupcakes!
As is my style, I had five activities set up around the house and let the children pick what they wanted to go to. It was very informal. I offered snowflake cookie decorating and candy sled assembling, snow finger painting, snowflake coloring and white glittered play doh. We also played "pin the part" on the snowman. I tied a scarf around the children's eyes so they couldn't peak.
On Saturday night the children made snowman shaped pizzas and enjoyed snow cones for dessert!
I know everyone says this, but I can't believe my baby is three! It was a wonderful celebration of the special little man he is. Hopefully everyone else had a fabulous weekend filled with lots of reasons to celebrate with all of the ones you love.
