Two blog posts in one day?!
“Why worry? If you’ve done the very best you can, worrying won’t make it any better.” – Walt Disney
D23 has announced that Frozen 2 will be coming to Disney+ TODAY! I’m so excited to finally watch this movie, and luckily I’m stocked up on all my favorite snacks during this madness!
This is big considering all the parks are closed and this wasn’t supposed to make it’s Disney+ debut for another 3 months! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a family Sunday or really any other day with a frozen marathon day, So I planned out some fun recipes and activities to make it extra magical (and educational but don’t tell your kids that!)
Disney+ Watch List
Arendelle Castle Yule Log
Use this when making snacks and during “brain breaks”
Olaf’s Frozen Adventure – 24 mins.
I think it’s important to keep children’s brains going while they are out of school for this time, this short special can be used as a tool for a writing “assignment”. Have your child or yourself, we don’t judge over here, write about their favorite traditions and let them dream up some new ones! If you have more than one child, have them share their work with their siblings or work in a group!
LEGO Disney Frozen: Northern Lights (Shorts) – 1 season, 4 episodes at 8 mins each.
I’d sprinkle these out throughout the day and use these episodes as a guide for some more “Brain Breaks”. Challenge your child to choose something from the short and draw up a “blueprint” and have them build it with legos! Another activity to do with legos can be having your child try to build their own Frozen themed land. For siblings have them make different parts of Elsa’s castle and work together to put it together! The last Lego short talks about glaciers making it a perfect time to toss in some geography and talk/read/watch about where you can find glaciers and their importance. Lastly, have a “free build” time and have them explain what they build!
Frozen & Frozen 2
These movies are perfect for having your little one compare and contrast the two movies, you could also take a tally and make a graph to get some math in! Bonus tip: to tie some extra art into the day you can have your children make snowflakes and use them as markers on your graph!
Of course, any snack is a good snack, but if you want to tie it into your frozen day I have some suggestions!
For sure hot chocolate should be on this list, because who DOESN’T like hot chocolate! If you don’t have any cocoa mix, you can use some cocoa powder, vanilla extract and your milk of choice!
For a healthy snack, grapes and blueberries work perfectly as “troll stones”
Marshmallows can “build a snowman” with the help of some pretzel sticks, chocolate chips, and gummy candies!
Of course, you’ll need some Hershey Kisses, because we all know a kiss melts a frozen heart!
Play pin the carrot nose on Olaf! Draw up a quick snowman and some carrots and go to town!
Frozen Dance which is really just freeze dance with Frozen Jams! You can also do musical chairs!
Comment below the best part of your weekend to spread some magic!
