One of our favorite movies of 2013 was Disney’s FROZEN. Recently I learned of a fun fact: FROZEN had the third highest grossing 5th weekend in box office history! There’s not many movies that keep that kind of sustainability at the box office, so that’s quite an accomplishment. Because the family enjoyed the movie so much, I decided to host a Disney’s FROZEN play date party!
I headed to Walmart to find FROZEN-inspired party supplies for our themed play date. I found an abundance of FROZEN merchandise including the adorable Olaf toy, which my two-year old son couldn’t get enough of. With the backdrop of the movie set in Arendelle and forced with an eternal winter, I chose to go with the beautiful colors of the Ice Palace in blues, white, and silver. I found many items in the party section of the store, and the Christmas clearance to help with the Disney FROZEN play date party decor.
During the play date the kids played with the FROZEN toys and did a fun craft with snow. Since we live in Central Florida and it would be almost a miracle to see snow here, we had to make it!
The recipe for “fake” snow includes: (2) 1 lb. boxes of Corn Starch and a can of shaving cream. We used sticks for his arms, nose and mouth, and other craft supplies we had on hand for his scarf, buttons, and eyes. It’s a pretty messy craft so I suggest doing it outside or having several pieces of newspaper around the craft area to catch any excess. The kids loved getting messy with this fun craft, and we even created this adorable snowman.
After all of that #FrozenFun, the kids built up an appetite. Good thing I grabbed a few Subway Fresh Fit for Kids meals, which just so happened to be FROZEN-themed and included an exclusive FROZEN keychain and puzzle. Subway is known for its healthy options, but that didn’t scare any of these kids off. They ate every bite!
For dessert I pre-made Rice Krispie Treats, then let the kids use cookie cutters to create fun shapes like stars and snowmen. They spread vanilla icing over top and used silver and blue sprinkles to decorate. I added cookie sticks to the Rice Krispie Treats to lessen the stickiness factor for the kiddos.
Our winter play date captured all things FROZEN and was so much fun to create and enjoy!
