CRAFT 1: OLAF IN A BLIZZARD
What a cute idea from 30 Minute Crafts! It was perfect, because it was cooler than a regular snow globe. Each girl got a packet of Olaf parts: googly eyes, mouth with tooth, chenille stems to make his branch arms, white poms for feet and body, carrot nose (made out of orange foam) and tiny black poms for coal buttons. The silver spoon was to throw in some silver glitter. The kids loved it! They loved seeing pieces of Olaf swooshing through the glittered snow.
CRAFT 2: PAINT YOUR OWN TROLL
I found these cute plaster figures in Hobby Lobby. They are meant to be little monsters but they weren't too far from looking like trolls to me. They were only $5.99 for six and of course I used a 40% coupon. :)
So, we invited everyone to the "Troll Den" to paint their own troll.
Once the girls painted their troll and they dried, we hot glued fake moss to the tops as the hair. Look how adorable they all came out! I love them!
This scavenger hunt from My Sister's Suitcase for Bombshell Bling is so stinkin' clever! It uses the Frozen song lyrics as clues and they're offered as free printables. We used most of the clues and the kids loved having their Frozen knowledge tested.
I stuck one clue in the freezer with Olaf!
At the end of the scavenger hunt were the goodie bags filled with a shimmery blue nail polish, icicle-like rock candy stick and a Frozen sticker in a snowflake printed cello bag.
KARAOKE AND DANCING!
Since music was such a big deal in the movie, we had to find a way to incorporate the music into the party so we set a stage for karaoke!
We have an Internet-ready TV, so I pulled up You Tube videos with the lyrics on the screen and it was instant karaoke! There was singing done as solos and in groups.
And lots of dancing!
The party was three hours so there was also time for free play--which I think is always a good thing. You don't want to make the party too structured.
Then of course we did cake, presents and...
We have a Jelly Belly snowcone machine that made it easy to make snow cones quickly.
I took a free printable from Paging Supermom and modified it a bit as my station sign.
The party was a huge success! Everyone went home with smiles! And I was exhausted by the end of the night. But hearing my daughter Siena say, "Mom, thanks so much! That was the best one yet!" made it all worth it. :)
