To get in the mood for Frozen 2 there’s plenty of fun to be had, while you wait, FOR FREE! We were really late to the party with the original, but I think we are almost ready for a fresh dose! Although I wasn’t all that impressed by the first film’s plot, I thought the soundtrack was an improvement on Tangled, and we have been enjoying the music in particular for the past year.
In any case the usual sort Frozen-symptoms occurred last year in with 2 out of the 4 little ones and back then I thought I would try to accelerate the obsession out of them! In other words that by deliberately doing lots of Frozen-related stuff I would see if even they got fed up with it?! Not sure if it worked, but they had fun!
I always prefer to encourage free-hand drawing. And on this occasion we got lucky with some musical motivation too, with our 9yo learning some simple chords on the piano to accompany his 7 yo sister singing Let it Go. She has a sweet voice, and it turns out he has a good ear for the piano. As they say, every cloud has a silver lining 😉
This Disney site is the best one for a range of activities, all you need is a semi-decent printer and some paper. There are ice lolly recipes and song lyrics, but my kids enjoyed some simple colouring-in of Anna and Elsa and Olaf, cutting out a poseable snowman and trying out mazes like this one (pretty tricky actually).
If you would like some more interesting colouring sheets then this site has a lots of scenes from the film, and they look fairly convincing.
If you are ready to step up a notch then check out these Elsa and Anna papercraft dolls. These are heavy on adult involvement, although my 7 and 9 year olds managed to do almost all the cutting out and some of the gluing. Double-sided tape is your friend for this craft 🙂 Apparently Frozen 2 isn’t set for release until 2018, so I’m sure you’ll have these finished in time. :p
If we are lucky enough to get some snow in this temperate part of the UK this winter then I am sure they will be out there building a fine Olaf 🙂
