Do you have a ‘winter baby’? I do, and each year in the lead up to his birthday I overthink the cold days and wet weather back-up plans but reality is it’s still possible to celebrate outdoors with minimal fuss.
Things to consider when hosting a kids birthday party during winter
If you are hosting a small group of friends, try to split the time between inside and outside. A short, structured activity helps keep the everyone busy and prevent the mess from spreading to every room in the house.
Consider indoor activities such as decorating cupcakes, a Lego building challenge or decorating plain white t-shirts or pillowcases with fabric markers.
Inform guests that you plan on playing outside and make a note on invites to remind them to wear their beanies and fleecy gumboots.
Challenge children to find the most interesting thing to decorate a large cardboard photo frame. Simply poke flowers or leaves through the card or use a hot glue gun to attach heavier finds such as pinecones, seed pods or twigs.
