I have so much fun planning birthday parties, thinking of every single detail, designing every decoration, assembling all of the little projects and even though the list goes on and on, a beautiful looking party is not necessarily a fun party.
What really matters is that our children feel loved and celebrated in the midst of family and friends.
So don’t overlook planning little party activities that you feel your child would enjoy.
To keep up with the Owl theme of my daughter’s first birthday party, I put together a Wise Owl Corner, a Night Owl Corner and a Winter Owl Corner (you can read more about it here).
At the winter owl corner, children were invited to a snowball fight.
That’s right, a snowball fight in July!
So how did I do that? It’s very simple, the only thing you’ll need are some
- Women’s Tights
- Tie a knot.
- Scoop flour into the tights.
- Tie another knot.
- Start again.
We placed all of the snowballs inside a plastic tub. And by we I mean my husband and brother in law who I am sure could not live without me asking for everything and some every Birthday Party’s Eve. I’m not breaking that tradition anytime soon ;)
The “snowballs” can be used time and time again. It will last a very very long time.
And you don’t have to worry about kids getting hurt because they are really soft.
They had so much fun …
… and they were not the only ones playing along!

A snowball fight in the summer is so much fun! I still get requests for a new one every time it warms up. And with all the Frozen Birthday Parties around this one is a must!
