What's your plan for a winter themed birthday party?

I let my kids pick a theme, but, as a winter birthday, I'm ALWAYS looking for free/cheap/time saving ideas. My birthday is in July and I think most of my parties were outside as a kid! I can't do that with our February babies. Do you have thoughts or party ideas ideas? What's worked for you?

Thanks and happy upcoming birthday to your big 6 year olds!

Hey Leanne; why don’t you choose a theme that will allow you to explore a lot of options even if you are indoors. Some popular winter themes are snowman theme, retro theme, etc. Alternatively, you can also host a character theme party such as Spiderman, Ben 10, etc. Pulling off parties on such themes is very easy as you can find all the themed supplies at almost every party store. You can conveniently plan the decoration, food, and games indoors.

My son wants an Angry Bird theme party. Our house is a little small for ALL of his friends, so I think we're actually going to have a pool party at our local YMCA and just decorate the party room with Angry Bird stuff. Our Y offers parties for about $200.

Normally for family birthdays, my son picks a theme and I get a couple decorations that go with the theme, (one year he wants transformers so i got a pinata plates and napkins with transformer paterns and streamers and balloons with the same colors).
This year however, we have another family members birthday who turned 4 today so we're doing a joint birthday party with her. She wanted a fairy themed birthday, so my son agreed to do a pirate theme for his...Pirates and Pixies birthday. I saw lots of different ideas for it on Pintrest
Another idea, we did this when he turned 3, we went to a local play center called Kids City, it has a giant play structure inside with a bouncy castle, laser tag, a wii and foosball table. It is a bit pricey if you have lots of people, but if you keep the guest list small its not to bad.
If it's nice enough out, why not sledding, or skating? Our comunity center has a few ice rinks and an ice slide that people use for birthdays during the winter, and it doesnt cost anything unless you rent a room in the hall.
