This year, for E's 5th Birthday, she decided to have a Disney's Frozen themed birthday party. Our decorations were simple, and are party games were pretty basic, but the girls had a great time.
My Sweet 5 Year Old, E:
Hi, I'm Olaf!

When the story was over, we moved the girls over to play Pin the Nose on Olaf. This year, instead of all cheating, they just laughed about all the places the noses ended up... so maybe they are maturing... maybe...?
Our next activity, was a Frozen version of Hot Potato. I found a set of large reusable ice cubes for $3 at Bed Bath and Beyond, and used one of those as a cold "potato". The girls passed it around in a circle waiting for the music to stop. When the music stopped, that girl moved out of the circle to dance, and the game continued with the remaining girls. They love it!

Then it was pinata time! E had picked out a pink tiara pinata from Party City, but after the girls pulled off all the strings, we realized it was not the pull-string version. Unable to find something to hold or hit the pinata, I just dumped the candy out the "fill" hole for the girls. They scooped up the candy and put it in their treat bags, which included a little pencil, notebook, necklace, and some Frozen gummy snacks too. For some reason I never got a picture of the pinata, but these were the treat bags I made for each girl.
The highlight of the whole party though was when I turned on the Frozen soundtrack and a bubble machine. The girls sang, danced, caught bubbles, and just all around had a blast. Honestly, they were having so much fun, they made me wish I was a five year old girl again.
After some dancing, the girls came back downstairs for pizza, cake, cookies, carrots (Olaf noses), and blue jello cubes (ice cubes). They sang, "Happy Birthday," and when all of the food had been eaten, the girls raced back upstairs for more dancing.
What a great party!! Happy 5th Birthday, Sweet E!
