Snowglobe Party Ideas
Snowglobe party ideas, party games, activities and fun ideas for
kids, tweens and teens.
Everyone loves snowglobes so we've made it into a party theme
that guests are sure to love!
Snowglobe Party Games
4 white or silver balloons or 4 play balls
Have players sit or stand in a large circle and give one player a blown
up balloon. The player calls out a holiday or Christmas item
(reindeer, snow, Santa, etc.) and then hits the balloon towards another
player in the circle. The player must catch the balloon and
immediately call out another holiday item. After calling out
the holiday item they hit the balloon towards another player.
If a player can't think of a holiday item to call out or repeats one
that has already been said they are out.
After the players have played for a minute add in another balloon
ball and have them both going around the circle at the same time.
Continue adding balls until you have 4 balls going around the circle
making it look like a snowglobe!
White or silver hula hoops
Divide players into 2 teams. Players in each team form a line and
hold hands. The player on the end takes the hula hoop and
passes it through their body to their other arm and then to the next
person in line. Teams have to hold hands the entire time.

North Pole Scurry
Teams try to be the first to move from start
to finish line by using only a few pieces of paper or "icebergs".
Cut large iceberg shapes from
white or light blue poster board about 15" x 15" each.
Give teams one more iceberg then the number of players on the team.
can only use the
given to them to get from one end of the
room to the other. Teams use the
pieces to move by having
players stand on the ice burgs all together. Then they take the back iceberg and
hand it down the line to the front of the line and so on. If a player steps
off the iceberg into the water they all go back and begin again.
Variation: Divide the guests into smaller groups of three
or four and give them only 2 large icebergs.
Snowglobe Freeze Dance
Party guests play freeze dancing on a floor filled with
white (you can also add red and green) balloons. Gather
the party guests in the snow and tell them to dance while the
music is playing, but when the music stops they must freeze in
the position they were in until the music starts playing again
... then they can unfreeze and dance.
Before the party begins blow up lots and lots of white balloons
so that they completely cover the dance floor. Kids really
this game and dancing around kicking through the balloons.
Remove any popped balloons pieces right away.
This game is played just like the game Hot
Potato. For a snowball use a white beanbag, ball or fill a white
balloon with flour. You will need Christmas / Holiday music. Party
guests gather in a circle and a snowball is given to the birthday
child. Tell the guests to pretend that the "snowball" is hot and
when it's passed to them they have to quickly pass it to the next
person. (The game can be played by passing the snowball around in
a circle, or let the kids toss it back and forth within the circle.)
After they "snowball" has gone around a few times stop the music and
whoever is holding the "snowball" is out. Continue playing until
there is a winner. Guests can be given a small consolation prize
when they leave the game.
You will need:
tray, small toys
The day before the party place small toys inside an ice cube tray, fill
with water and freeze.
Give each guest a frozen ice cube and on “go” they must try to be the
first to get the toy completely unfrozen.
They can use only their hands, breath or body to get the toy out
of the ice. Fun game
and kids love it!
