Do you wanna' build a party?

Like many four-six year olds around the globe, my four-year-old daughter knows every lyric to every song of Disney's latest princess movie, Frozen.

With a certain little Frozen fan's fifth birthday quickly approaching, the theme was a no-brainer; finding theme based party supplies, however, is not proving to be so easy.

The animated movie, released in the USA in November 2013, has generated more than $1.1 billion in ticket sales, according to Box Office Mojo. That's made it the highest-grossing animated film of all time (source).

Buyer beware if you're sourcing out Frozen products on eBay or even Australia-based Facebook pages and suppliers. Yes, I should have known better, but was sorrily disappointed to receive this "DISNFY" boxed-doll set, with products of equally disappointing quality:

My accidental 'FAUXzen' purchase

Frozen merchandise is particularly hard to come by in Australia right now; the licensing is expensive for retail outlets, and when they do get products in, they are in low quantity and disappear fast. Even with a lack of actual licensed Frozen (or non-licensed "FAUXzen") products, you can put on a fantastic, inexpensive party with a little creativity. Here are some of my ideas; original, as well as adaptations of ideas found on blogs and various curated boards on pinterest (my board is here).

    ❄ Serve carrots in large paper cups; write, "Olaf Noses" on the cup. Freehand a picture of Olaf's face on the other side.
    ❄ Make Olaf plates with the guests' name on them, reading, "Name, you are worth melting for!"
    ❄For games, divide the kids into teams by characters using headbands, "Elsa" and "Anna" for all girls, add Sven, and Kristoff for boys teams, and even "Hans" and "Marshmallow" for baddies.
    ❄Go skating; hire a rink and take the kids skating.
    ❄Serve ice cream cake.
    ❄Give mittens in the party bags.
    ❄Have a "snowball fight." Use recycled newspapers or butchers paper, pom poms, or styrofoam balls.
    ❄Have you noticed the colour of Cinderella's dress lately? With a pin here and a stitch there, you can make a beautiful, sparkly, flowy Elsa dress using a Cinderella dress!

    ❄Play "Let it Go": Pass an ice cube around while the song "Let it Go" is playing; stop the music intermittently and award a small prize to the person holding the ice cube, or play like musical chairs
    ❄Sew cotton balls onto fishing line to create a "snow" effect (or use some pom pom yarn as pictured).
    ❄White doilies make great snowflakes
    ❄ Use white fairy lights all around the table and room
    ❄White and blue tissue pom poms are inexpensive at dollar stores and the Reject Shop and make great snowflake-esque decorations
    ❄Use marshmallows, pretzels, and M&Ms to make snow man building kits. Add them to a small cellophane bag with a tag that reads, "Do You Wanna' Build a Snowman?"
    ❄Label bottled water with "melted snow" or "what happens to snow in the summer"
    ❄Attach snowflakes to the ends of wands for each "Elsa" to have their own snow wand.
    ❄ Make "Sven Pasta" using IKEA moose-shaped pasta, available year-round in the food department.
    ❄Olaf is actually not too tricky to draw. These are some homemade invitations that my 4-year-old whipped up! How cute are they?
    ❄Play "Frozen-Hug-Tag" or "Olaf Tiggy": Like classic frozen tag/tiggy, where the tagged person has to freeze on the spot. In this version, the frozen person has to say, "I like warm hugs," until they are hugged and set free by another player.
    ❄If your party is in the winter, buy or make fleece scarves as a take-home gift. If your party is in the summer, give a sand bucket and shovel, with a note that says, "The Joys of Summer."

I hope this warms up your imagination and gets the (snow)ball rolling for your Frozen party. And hey, why wait for a birthday? Host a school holiday party, an "Olaf's Summer" party, or a "Love Thaws" Valentine's party. Share your ideas in the comments.

HAHA Disnfy made me giggle. However, I was on an ebay spree at 2am this morning for the exact same reason - a Frozen party - so now I'm cringing that I probably bought some Disnfy stuff too. D'oh!
