About Me

My photo
I would say that I am curious, vivacious, gregarious, sometimes funny, intelligent, easy going, very passionate about the things I love, caring, thoughtful, and kind. Maybe that is a little over the top, but I think you can count on me to be very honest. LOL

Frozen Family Fun

*** Warning Inclement Picture Overload***

We started the night with some great activities -

Epsom Salt Painting -

For the activity we first did snow painting so we could see them all dry after the movie. This Epsom salt paint fit the bill! It's so easy to make - just stir 2 parts of Epsom salt and 1 part very hot water together (1/2 cup Epsom salt 1/4 cup water). Then paint with the solution on black paper and wait for it to dry (this is when the magic happens!)  The solution actually crystallizes and looks just like ice crystals! Of course it was hard to pull Kendry away from painting as he loved painting and watching what happened as the water dried and I loved that it was pretty mess-free.

We played several games of Frozentration - (Our Name for this memory game).

Memory has been a favorite in our family for years.  Probably because it is easy to play.  Kendry is totally in love with this game.   Although the game is designed so two players play against each other, for Frozentration we just let Kendry match up the pairs.   It was great to see the huge smile on his face when he made a match.   T

The game is also known as Concentration, Pelmanism, Shinkei-suijaku, Pexeso and Pairs…..that’s why we have made up our own name “FROZENTRATION”!  The set has 12 different characters for a total of 24 cards.  We kept the game really simple for K starting out with 3 sets and increasing up to 6.   We played it for almost a full hour!  I’m sure it will be something he asks to play over and over again!   Thanks grandma for making the cute cards from this web site http://www.disney.co.uk/frozen/downloads/frozen-activity-memory-cards.pdf




Olaf was our next activity…This was the best design Kendry put together.   There were some pretty cute upside down, broken apart, and even a melted one with every piece stacked on top of each other.   Another keeper!



Finally we finished our activities with Borax Crystals.   This project had to be started the night before our party so the crystals had time to form.   We think they turned out beautiful!
