With your child turning two years old during the winter months, it is time to throw a "snowed in" birthday party. Give your guests a reason to bundle up and brave the chilly weather by hosting a birthday party for your child that helps them have fun, warm up and enjoy the comforts of home. Incorporate the whimsy and beauty of snow and snow activities through your decorations, food and entertainment.
Decorate your counter tops and tables with coconut decorations. Coconut gives the appearance of snow, but it is edible--just in case any little hands grab a handful. Fill large circular glass vases or glass bowls with coconut shavings. You can embellish the bowl with snow-themed tree ornaments, such as sleds, snowmen, snowwomen and mittens. Decorate your fireplace mantle with a "garland" of winter scarves tied or twisted together. Attach plastic snowflake decals to your windows and your glass front door, if you have one.
Make a snowman or snowman cake, depending on the sex of your child. You can do this by baking three circular pan cakes, spreading white icing on them and decorating as you would like with candies. Set up an hot cocoa bar. Fill snow-themed coffee mugs with different toppings, such as marshmallows and caramel sauce. Place spoons or wooden honey drizzlers in them, and let parents come up the bar to customise a cup of cocoa.
Entertain your two-year old guests by playing a snow-themed cartoon movie. Set up an activities table in which they draw or colour a snow-themed colouring page or with the help of their parents, make a snowman or snowwoman to hang on the wall at home. You can cut out the white circles ahead of time and provide glue sticks and crayons for the parents and children to do this activity together.
