Ice Skating 7th Birthday Party

We decided to have an ice skating birthday party this year for E's 7th Birthday.

The party was for 3 hours for 14 kids!

We were in a party room for the first hour. The kids got a slice of pizza and soda, and we had cake and cupcakes.

I made goodie bags for all of the kids that included bubbles, hot chocolate mix, a mini flute,a sparkling bouncey ball and a crazy straw.

I also made jumbo marshmallows dipped in white chocolate and blue sparkle sugar and packaged them on lollipop sticks.

Scott and I made homemade snowflake sugar cookies from scratch, and decorated them with Royal icing and silver candy beads. 

I also got each of the kids a pair of gloves from the Target Dollar section...only I got them for 75% off...that's 25 cents per pair!! I'm such a good bargain shopper!!

Scott wanted to make  E's birthday cake, and E's request was a vanilla number 7 and vanilla cupcakes.

We fancied them up by making toppers from the invitation design, and added a little "ice" to the frosting with blue sugar.

We played one game, Guess how many snowflakes "marshmallows" were in the vase, and I had a prize for the girl and the boy who guessed the closest. Any guess as to how many are in this vase?

520 mini mashmallows!!

We sang, and the energy level was waaaaayyyyyy to high for the kids to be in this mini room any longer, it was time to ice skate!!

Before we skated, we informed the kids that if they needed any help while skating, to ask one of the parents from our group who were out on the ice. WE identified them by these cute little snowflake pins that took me all of 5 minutes to make.

The kids all had a great time!

We took presents home to open, and went to dinner at the restaurant of E's choice, "Outback" with mom-mom and pop-pop.

Happy 7th Birthday E, Mommy and Daddy love you more then you'll ever know!
