A Winter Themed Toddler Birthday Party

Stephanie from Spaceships and Laser Beams sent over this cute toddler birthday party and I just loved her idea for a sweet, winter-themed dessert table boasting lots of healthier goodies for kids. Spaceships and Laser Beams specializes in great printable and DIY ideas for little boys parties and Stephanie put this dessert table together using a printable party kit now available in their shop. (So, yes, you can recreate this party on the cheap. Love that!)

To help make your party planning even simpler, Stephanie was awesome and shared the sweets that she used for the dessert table…

“No cake” pops – Instead of cake and chocolate, I wanted to offer up a high protein concoction. As two year olds don’t exactly have the most complex palette, I mixed peanut butter with graham crumbs, formed them into balls, piped on a tiny bit of white chocolate and popped these in the fridge to get nice and firm. (But a safer option, if there is any question of allergies, would be almond or soy butter.) For an even healthier base you could crush one of your child’s favorite cereals and use it instead of the graham crumbs. (It should go without saying that the stick should be removed  before giving to the little one. But you always need to say these things.)

Winter Crisp – This is a fruit cup that’s combination of baked apples, blueberries and blackberries. For the crisp part, I wanted something quick, as I find I have no time these days. I crushed some pretzels, a little butter and brown sugar. The salty and sweet taste awesome together. Cumbled granola bars would also work.

Snowmen – I originally saw a version of these guys in Canadian Living magazine. Basically, I put one bocconcini ball on the bottom and cut another in half to use as the mid-section and head. The arms are stick pretzels. The nose is the end of a carrot. The hat is about a 1/4 of a raddish. They’re fastened together using two sharp toothpicks, one through all three cheese balls and one through the radish and into the cheese. (Again, it should go without saying that the toothpick should be removed  before giving to the little one.)

Vegan cupcakes – I’ve been wanting to try my hand a vegan baking for a while. A very good friend of mine owns Goodness Bakeshop and kindly supplied the vegan cupcake recipe. It was an easy way to try something (vegan baking) that felt intimidating.

Thank you so much for sharing, Stephanie! Be sure to check out Spaceships and Laser Beams for more budget-friendly party ideas!

This is super cute! I love the use of the yarn to make the snowballs and trees.
