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.
