Cozy DIY Decorations
Get your cozy winter-themed slumber party started with some DIY decorations. We love adding a personal touch to our sleepovers, and making our own fleece blankets and winter-themed pillow covers is the perfect way to do it.
To create DIY fleece blankets, simply choose your favorite fabric pattern or color, measure and cut the fleece to your desired size, and sew the edges together. This not only keeps you warm during the chilly winter nights but also adds a pop of color to your sleeping area.
For the pillow covers, pick out festive wintery fabrics like snowflakes or reindeer prints, cut them into squares slightly larger than your pillows, and sew them together. These custom-made decorations will make your slumber party feel extra special and give everyone that cozy winter vibe they’re looking for.
Hot Cocoa Bar Ideas
Set up a hot cocoa bar with various toppings and flavors to create a cozy and delicious winter drink station. At our snowy sleepover, we love indulging in warm mugs of hot cocoa with all the fixings. Here are some ideas to make your hot cocoa bar extra special:
Fluffy Whipped Cream: Instead of traditional marshmallows, try topping your hot cocoa with a dollop of homemade whipped cream for an extra creamy treat.
Cinnamon Sugar Sprinkle: Add a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on top of your hot cocoa for a delightful twist of flavor.
Peppermint Crunch: Crush candy canes into small pieces and use them as a crunchy topping for your hot cocoa.
Salted Caramel Drizzle: Drizzle some rich salted caramel sauce over your mug for a sweet and salty combination that will leave you wanting more.
Spiced Chai Twist: Add a teaspoon of spiced chai mix to your hot cocoa for a unique blend of flavors.
With these marshmallow topping alternatives and unique hot cocoa flavors, you’ll be sure to create an unforgettable winter drink experience at your slumber party. So go ahead, indulge in the freedom to customize your perfect cup of warmth!
Snowflake Crafts and Activities
Create your very own snowflake crafts and activities to add a touch of winter magic to your celebration.
Transform your space into a winter wonderland with these fun and creative ideas.
Start by organizing a winter wonderland scavenger hunt, where guests can search for hidden snowflakes throughout the house or backyard.
Provide clues and rewards for an extra dose of excitement.
Next, engage everyone in DIY snow globe making.
Gather clear jars, glitter, small figurines, and distilled water.
Let each guest personalize their own snow globe by adding their chosen elements inside the jar and sealing it tightly.
They can shake it up to watch the magical snowfall!
These hands-on activities will bring out the inner artist while embracing the beauty of winter.
Winter Movie Marathon
Curl up on the couch with a cozy blanket and enjoy a winter movie marathon filled with your favorite flicks. It’s the perfect way to spend a chilly evening, surrounded by the warmth of good company and captivating stories.
To make your movie night even more memorable, here are some ideas to spice things up:
- Create festive winter cocktails like hot toddies or spiced apple cider
- Test your knowledge with winter movie trivia games between films
- Build a DIY popcorn bar with various toppings and flavors
- Settle in for an all-time favorite Christmas film, like ‘Home Alone’ or ‘Elf’

As you sip your delicious cocktails and answer trivia questions, let yourself be transported into different worlds through the magic of cinema. Enjoy this moment of freedom and escape from reality!
Indoor Snowball Fight Games
Get ready to have a blast with indoor snowball fight games! You can have all the excitement of a winter snowball fight without the chilly weather.
At our winter themed party, we wanted to bring the fun and thrill of a snowy battle indoors. We set up different stations in our living room, using soft and fluffy snowball props as ammunition.
The rules were simple: split into teams, take cover behind furniture or makeshift forts, and let the snowballs fly! It was incredible how realistic it felt as we dodged and ducked behind couches, laughing uncontrollably.
To make it even more exciting, we added targets on the walls for bonus points. This creative indoor activity brought out everyone’s competitive spirit while keeping us warm and cozy inside.
DIY Winter Spa Treatments
To have a relaxing and rejuvenating winter spa experience, try making your own DIY facial masks using natural ingredients. Here are five homemade face mask recipes that will leave your skin feeling nourished and glowing:
Honey and Avocado Mask: Mix mashed avocado with a tablespoon of honey for a moisturizing treat.
Cucumber and Aloe Vera Mask: Blend cucumber slices with fresh aloe vera gel for soothing hydration.
Strawberry and Yogurt Mask: Mash strawberries with yogurt to brighten and exfoliate your skin.
Rose Petal and Coconut Oil Mask: Infuse dried rose petals in coconut oil for a luxurious moisturizing mask.
Lemon and Sugar Scrub: Combine lemon juice with sugar to create an invigorating scrub that removes dead skin cells.
After pampering your face, don’t forget to indulge in a warm bath with soothing bath salts. Create your own blend by mixing Epsom salt, lavender essential oil, and dried chamomile flowers.
Enjoy the freedom of self-care as you relax in the comfort of your own home this winter.
Snowy Snacks and Treats
Indulge in some deliciously warm hot cocoa with marshmallows to satisfy your sweet tooth on a chilly winter day. But let’s not stop there! We’re all about frosty desserts and winter wonderland cookies that will make your taste buds dance with joy.
Picture this: soft, fluffy snowman-shaped sugar cookies, decorated with icing and adorned with edible glitter. Each bite is like a little taste of the whimsical winter wonderland we’ve created right here at our slumber party.
