The first thing we did to start the party off was have a scavenger hunt. We had to help Anna find Elsa. Sound familiar? There was more clues, less singing, no one Let it go, there was no talking snowman (boo), but we did find Elsa.
I put it on the same sparkly blue paper as the birthday banner. The clues were taped around where they were supposed to be. One was they were to look for a picture of a river. You know “I’ve started talking to the pictures on the wall”. The next clue was taped under the canvas picture.
We had a bunch of 6 and 7 year olds along for the party. It was about 50/50 with the girls knowing how to read. I followed along to assist any readers, make sure everyone got a turn, and helped out any confusing clues.
In the basement playroom they had to search for 3 hidden stuffed animal Olaf’s before getting the next clue. Also this is the first time this playroom is making a appearance on Our house now a home. It is not finished, decor or walls. But, maybe I will just share it like it is. What it is, is a place where my kids can play their really loud musical instruments without giving us headaches. Also the mess can stay existing a lot longer when it is out of sight.
|Onto to the next clue. Side note, this staircase is our next big makeover spot. I have some fun, big plans for it.|
|Here is me being bossy. Or dancing in the corner, not sure what I am doing.|
The last planned activity was to build a Olaf. If it was up to me it would have been a strictly Olaf party. That guy is so lovable! He makes that movie to me, and I laugh at his lines ALL THE TIME. So we built one.
Here is the supplies. Confession time, I just took these pictures and built this while I was writing this post. I realized I did not have one picture of the built Olaf’s during the party. That cannot happen. We still have all of the supplies so I got busy building this just for you all.
Using frosting as the glue to connect all of the little pieces that make him who he is. Of course starting with marshmallows.
After all of the eating the girls were set loose, we had 30 more minutes of the party and they were losing it. There was one girl getting pulled along the floor on her back, one trying to open up Nora’s hamster’s cage, one under Nora’s bed, two fighting over the drum set, and one chasing Teddy around trying to play with him. I figured it was not appropriate to make all of them sit on time out until their parents came. Luckily for me I planned for something like this. I found a bunch of free printable coloring pages of the Frozen characters. Each child had a packet of about 5 papers to color. I broke out our coloring stuff and they all became engrossed. It was coloring magic. Mom wins again! Each child was still coloring when their parents came, I sent them on their way with full bellies, a goody bag, some packets of coloring pages, great memories, all having a good time. All to the correct parents, with no tears or mean girl issues. Success!
