An ice cream bar can be the star of the show as far as decorations are concerned.

Ice Cream Party Activities

When you're throwing a bash with an ice cream party theme, building ice cream sundaes is pretty much the main event.

However, it doesn't hurt to have a game or activity tossed in for good measure.

Here are a few ideas to keep the kids entertained:

  • Pin the Cherry on the Sundae: Create a large sundae out of posterboard and cut cherry shapes out of red cardstock. Play this like Pin the Tail on the Donkey, but with a sugary twist!
  • Create a Sundae Collage: Provide colorful paper cut into the shapes of cones, scoops and cherries. Provide glue and paper for the kids to glue their shapes onto, then let them decorate their desserts with real sprinkles and other fun toppings.
  • Ice Cream Pinata: What fun! A pinata shaped like an ice cream cone! This doubles as an activity and a fun decoration. Don't forget the pinata fillers!
