It wasn’t too long ago that Frozen captivated just about every single child’s imagination– while simultaneously drilling into their parents heads the incessant, unrelenting croons of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel (or Adele Dazeem if you’re John Travolta at the Oscars).
So how best to break away from that DVD player and still hold their fascination with all things Frozen? You know us– sensory activities, of course!
1. Create a sensory bin filled with blue-dyed rice “fjords” and use cotton balls as the ice blocks. It’s really easy to dye rice.
2. Make instant “snow” for a cold, squishy experience! You can create your own by mixing together equal parts shaving cream and corn starch then stick it in the freezer for about 12 hours. Or, you could buy Insta-Snow. Just add water and Let it goooo! Let it g— OK, I’ll stop.
look how much fun she’s having.
3. “Do you wanna build a snowman?” Just get some white play-doh and twigs or pretzel sticks for arms, frozen peas for his eyes, a baby carrot for his nose!
4. “For the first time in forever,” you can create Frozen slime with just two ingredients! One bottle of blue glitter glue and 8 ounces of cold liquid starch. Chill both items in the fridge overnight and then mix them together, starting with the glue and slowly adding the starch.
5. Shaving cream with blue food coloring. Or for a more edible version: Cool Whip and a more natural food dye (blueberries or Maggie’s Naturals). If you go the edible route, we HIGHLY recommend going with a natural dye, and if you haven’t checked out Maggie’s Naturals products yet, you owe it to yourself to take a gander.
You can make all these activities even more Frozen-friendly by adding figurines to the mix. You’ve got a few of those… right?
Tried any of these before? Let us know how they went!
