Viking Themed Party – Toddler Style

Hi Friends!

Vikings have been a recent topic in our household.   The Paper & Fox family thinks of vikings  as fierce redheaded warriors wearing horned helmets. If you follow me on instagram then you probably viewed my photos of a”viking DNA” test my 5 year took and the positive results. The goal of this “DNA” test was to help Knox with his fears and work on feeling brave.

My youngest son, Bryce, was turning 2 and we decided to continue the trend and  have a viking themed party for him. Unlike my oldest son’s 2nd birthday, I wanted a low-key and low-cost  celebration. Backyard + Hot Dogs + cupcakes + viking theme = Bryce’s 2nd Birthday.

A Viking Themed Party – Toddler Style

So, you can’t have a toddler party, much less a viking party with out hats.  I drew a  viking helmets and have copies printed  on cardstock paper.

 The simple viking helmet drawing was the basis for all the viking decor. I glued strips of white paper to a cut out paper helmet. Each guest could draw, decorate and color their paper helmet .

I also printed smaller helmets and glued the cutouts to toothpick. These were my cupcake toppers. Pretty cute huh?

With sharpie I drew a viking helmet on a plain white t-shirt for Bryce to wear. Plus, I think this is cool shirt that he can keep wearing… not just on his Birthday.

They played, enjoyed cupcakes and had a great time. Those are all key ingredients to an awesome party.

Thanks, Carmody

    Your Viking helmets are so creative. It sounds like a fun time was had by all. These are the kind of birthdays the children will remember the most! Happy Birthday to Bryce, a big boy now! Pinning to my Party board :-) Please come over and share this with us at the Home Matters Linky party!

    Is there a way to get a jpeg or pdf of this viking hat?! So cool I’d love to use it for my daughter (she’s a Viking 100%). Thanks!
