Winter Birthday Party Ideas

Make your child's birthday party special during the winter!

There are tons of activities to explore with their family and friends. That’s the best part about winter, there’s so many different activities going on no matter what area you live in.


Sledding is super enjoyable for anyone. You can throw a party outside and go sledding behind your house, if you have a hill but if not, attend a local sledding place and get the whole family together. Bring your sleds, or you can rent or purchase sleds. Make sure to wear layers of warm clothes and a nice pair of winter boots as sometimes the hills can be slippery. Don’t forget to purchase hot chocolate to warm everyone up.

Sledding as a birthday party idea for kids

Ice Skating

Ice skating is a popular winter activity for anyone to enjoy. Do you have a local skating rink or are you ambitious enough to create your own in your backyard? Whichever you decide, skating can be a fantastic birthday activity. Set up your refreshment and snack table beside the rink for easy access as your child and guests work up a sweat and appetite. While skating, set up a hockey game for a fun activity.

Winter Scavenger Hunt

Kids enjoy scavenger hunts, especially during the winter as they love to be outside in the snow. Create and print off a list of some items they can easily find during the winter time and head on outside. The scavenger hunt can take place in your backyard or bring your child and guests to a local park, either way it will be an enjoyable and memorable experience.
