With Cinco at camp, The Princess and I planned a mom camp day dedicated to Frozen!
First thing in the morning, we made popsicle. Don’t ask what I was thinking— I let her put sprite and skittles in the popsicle molds and stuck them in the freezer.
We also decided to invite one of her friends over to join in the fun– let’s call her Snowflake from now on. Before Snowflake arrived, we read a Frozen book and I gave The Princess a cute Frozen sticker book to play with while I was at the gym. It seemed to keep her occupied.
We rushed back home to meet Snowflake and let our crafting begin. There are tons of Frozen resources online and some very cleaver ideas.
I printed out a few items including:
- A Frozen Puzzle
- A Spot the Differences Worksheet
- An Olfa Assembly Challenge
- Anna and Elsa Crowns
- Amazing Paper Dolls from Paper Dolls by Cory–these dolls are truly works of art and they are free! But you need to Friend him on FB… I don’t know why he doesn’t sell them on Etsy. They are that good!
After making The Princess and Snowflake each a packet of printables… I got to work on our projects.
Each girl got to create a Frozen inspired piece of jewelry. I gathered a bunch of clear, crystal-like plastic beads. I was concerned the jewelry would look too dull if they only made of “icy” beads. I decided to add a few beads in different shades of blue and threw in a purple or two for good measure.
Snowflake opted to make a bracelet. The Princess decided on a necklace. Both girls looked very fashionable in their creations!
Our next craft were a set of Anna and Elsa crowns. I printed both crowns for each girl–no fighting during mom camp! While the crown’s creator suggests using glitter to glamorize the crowns, that as going to be too messy for me. I went out and I got some self adhesive pearls and diamonds to bling out the crowns.
Next, it was time for the popsicle taste test… Everyone agreed they were a bust, BIG TIME! Both girls rejected them and begged for popcorn instead. No problem.
Now it was time to start the movie…within minutes, Snowflake and The Princess were wearing the crowns and singing their hearts out until Snowflake’s mom picked her up.
I’ll count that a successful Frozen Day!
