Frozen Preschool Party featuring Olaf

Since this is the coldest February on record, I decided to celebrate with the cast of Frozen, or my preschoolers! I read Olaf’s 1,2,3 and then we had fun at a variety of stations:

Snowflake Wands: I had teen volunteers cut out white felt snowflakes using my die-cut machine. I hot glued the felt to wooden dowels ahead of time. The children decorated the wands with self-adhesive ribbon for this craft station.

Sven’s Nose: Children decorated reindeer foam shapes with pom-poms and self-adhesive stars for the antlers.

Olaf Bookmarks: I bought Olaf stickers from Oriental Trading and cut construction bookmarks for children to make their own.

Olaf Puzzles: I used my puzzle die and made Olaf puzzles on cardstock. I placed each puzzle in a colored sandwich bag. This was too complicated to do in house with all the other activities going on. It was a popular take-home activity, though!

Frozen Painting: Luckily it was below 0 last night, so I was able to freeze the Ice Painting station on my front porch. I did one squirt of washable paint and added water. I stirred each cube with a popsicle stick and left it in as a “paint brush.” This activity was so much fun! And it wasn’t even messy!

 

 

Olaf’s 1, 2, 3 Flannel Story

Olaf's 123 Book

With the popularity of Frozen, I decided to flannelize the counting story, Olaf’s 1, 2, 3! I plan on using this until the pieces melt. Between my in-house and outreach storytimes, these pieces will travel around the county during the month of January. I used my new die-cut machine for the snowflakes and handmade everything else:

Felt Board Table: The “Winter” Collection featuring Frozen

Winter Felt Table

My Felt Board Table is the best independent “program” I’ve ever come up with. It’s more popular than my scavenger hunts! We have families of all ages play with this from opening until closing very little setup time on my part. Since we had our first snowstorm, I am debuting the Winter Collection this week. I made an assortment of themes I will be mixing up each week to keep things fresh. I’m sure we’ll be listening to the Frozen soundtrack with these awesome new pieces! Here they are:
