Me: I think it is a little too cold outside for that outfit.
Lilly: Yeah it is but it is Frozen Day and Frozen is cold and so that is why I want to wear this and be cold.
chicken and cheese roll-ups. This recipe is from my friend Jenna and they are really good--you should make them even if you aren't having a Frozen dinner. I sprinkled them with some extra Monterey Jack cheese for "snow" on top. Also this is one of two ideas that I came up with on my own...the rest is from Pinterest. I love Pinterest.
Anna's Frozen Hearts--I cut strawberries in half and then cut a little "V" shape out of the top middle to make the heart shape and then dipped the ends in white almond bark. (A little tip for dipping strawberries in white or chocolate almond bark--the strawberries have to be dry--they can't be wet because it will ruin the almond bark. That's free lesson-learned in the past advice folks. Ha!) Then I decided to dip some twisted pretzels in the leftover almond bark, too.
Sven's Antler's are just some pretzel sticks in bowl.
Kristoff's Ice Blocks (blue jello cut into little squares)
here. I did make a few changes because I couldn't find black licorice rope so I just used a black tube of icing I already had. If you want to do the mouth like they did on the source you would need an icing pen (just a heads up). I also used the whole graham cracker instead of breaking it and I only had medium and regular size marshmallows. I just improvised and cut one of the big ones a little smaller for the middle because who needs 3 different bags of marshmallows laying around?? I also just cut an orange fruit snack for the nose. Really what I am saying is the tutorial gives great instructions but you can just use what you have. (: These kids were ecstatic about these so they were worth the work.
Snow-Cap Punch This is equal parts blue Hawaiian Punch and Sprite topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
After dinner we watched the movie. I was a little worried I had built it up too much in my mind but it did not disappoint! It is just such a cute movie! Afterward we channeled our inner Elsa's and "Let it go" with some crystallizing Epsom Salt painting. You just mix equal parts Epsom salt and hot water and then they paint and when it dries it crystallizes. We were all very excited to see them this morning!
I came across a few other cute ideas that we didn't do but I am going to go ahead and share them here.
