Frozen Party Ideas for Goody Bags & Pinatas

by - Tuesday, April 08, 2014

It's about to get cold up in here. We're having a Disney Frozen birthday party theme this weekend so I'm putting the last few party projects together. If you've been reading here a while, you'll know that I LOVE planning parties and this has been one of the most fun parties to plan ever. I loved the movie and the colours and characters are just fun to work with. In case you're planning a Frozen party, here are some of my Frozen party ideas on a budget.

Frozen Birthday Party Ideas On A Budget

Frozen Pinata:

One day, Chloe said to me "Mommy, you know what I want for my party? A Frozen pinata. But I've never seen one so I don't think I can have it." Well, lo and behold, I found this pinata. If you have looked for Frozen party decor, you'll know its pretty scarce out there. Everything is sold out! So when I saw this pinata, I had to jump on it. (Sneak peek of the party decor too!)

Silly me, I've never bought a pinata before and didn't know they came empty. So what to fill it with? I'm not too keen on giving kids lots of candy (there will be enough cake and fruit to give them a sugar rush) so I mixed in a few treats with toys.

What do you put in a pinata?

You can put in candy or chocolate, obviously, but think of small objects that a) kids will like playing with, b) will not break when they drop out of the pinata, and c) will not injure anyone when they fall down. Some suggestions include:

  • bouncing balls
  • bubble wands
  • small packs of crayons
  • themed erasers or pencil toppers
  • noisemakers
  • hair clips
  • finger puppets

FROZEN Goody Bag Ideas

Elsa's Snow Dough:

I know some parents are against the whole goody bag phenomenon but I just love putting them together. I like treats that are creative and won't fall apart or be tossed out as soon as the kids get home. When I saw this idea on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to put a Frozen spin on it. You can't have a Frozen party without snow, right?

How to make DIY Elsa Snow Dough:

*makes enough to fill 12 small mason jars


1 1/2 cup salt
3 cups water
6 tbsp cream of tartar
3 cups all purpose flour
3 tbsp vegetable oil
Peppermint extract

  1. In a large pot, add salt, water, cream of tartar, flour, and oil. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the mixture holds together (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat.
  2. Put the dough on a cookie sheet to cool. Knead in peppermint extract and glitter.

The snow dough isn't "white white" so you might want to add a touch of blue food colouring to make things feel a bit more frosty. I whipped up a label for the jars... Product of Arendelle... yes, I'm having way too much fun with this.

The snow dough will get packed up along with the DIY Frozen Peg Dolls and put into striped loot boxes. The final little touch? Stickers that say "Thank you snow much!" ;)

I think this Frozen Goody Bag works for boys and girls and it will give them hours of enjoyment. For more Frozen ideas, check out these posts:
