Embrace your child’s wintertime birthday with a party that features a favorite frosty weather activity: ice skating! Even if your guests aren’t experienced skaters, an ice skating party can provide a fun opportunity to learn the basics. An ice-skating ring is a perfect outdoor winter venue for a party! A group skating session is usually inexpensive, and facilities typically offer a party room where you can host the lunch, cake, and presents. Planning this theme can take as little as 30 minutes, so if you don’t have a lot of time and want to hold your party outside of your home, this may be a great idea for you. Regardless of your age, ice skating can bring smiles and excitement to individuals of every age. Whether it’s at your local pond, a local ice rink or at a homemade pond in your backyard, there are so many ways to make your ice skating birthday party a blast.
If you are going with a Birthday on Ice theme, one fun way to invite guests is with a ticket-style invitation. You can customize and print a ticket invitation using a free template on internet. Other ideas for ice-skating party invitations include: A cardstock cut out in the shape of an ice skate. Have the birthday child decorate one side of the skate with colored markers, glitter and stickers. Write the party details on the other side. A postcard invitation portraying your child wearing ice skates, or ice skaters on the rink in the photo section. A paper printout from your home computer that features ice-skating themed clipart in the design. A public ice skating rink will probably have a birthday party package available for your occasion. If not, you can inquire about renting the facility for a private party, or acquiring a group rate for your skating session. An arena that offers birthday packages may have private room set up where you can serve food, have the birthday cake and open gifts. Other places to have an ice skating party include the park (check about permits from the parks department), or your own backyard if you’re lucky enough to have a lake on the property. Another fun idea for a Birthday on Ice celebration is to take a couple of your child’s friends to an actual ice skating show, and then head to the public rink for a skating session where guests cans show off some of their own moves after the performance. You can even invite kids to come dressed in tutus and leotards. Hot chocolate is a must at an ice skating party! It’s perfect for when the kids need a break to warm up. A hot chocolate bar to allows the kids to create their very own creation. Set out different toppings to mix in such as marshmallows, candy canes, cinnamon sticks, whipped cream, sprinkles and any other treats you would like.
