“Frozen” Art for kids to have fun making

I like the “Frozen” movie; so, here are some projects kids to celebrate that theme.

Frozen Snowflake Art

Materials: White PVA Glue or Elmer’s Glue, Salt, Blue food coloring and water

Simply squirt your glue in a snowflake pattern, sprinkle generously with salt and allow drying. Once dry mix some water and food coloring to create the ‘paint’. Use an eye dropper to drip the colored water onto the salt patterns. The color will quickly spread along the lines!
Once dry you can spray with a clear sealer.

‘Frozen’ Snowflake Necklace

Materials: A Glue Gun with Glue Stick, A Snowflake template printed onto white paper, Glad bake/baking paper, Blue Tac, Glitter - use a combination of dark blue, light blue & white, Ribbon or string

Print out your snowflake template to the size you want.

Using your blu-tack – stick this page to your table.
Lay over a sheet of glad bake paper.
Blue tack that into place over your snowflake template also.
Make sure your glue gun is nice & hot, then ‘trace’ over the snowflake template onto the baking paper.
Add your glitter – easier to glue gun one section of the snowflake then add the glitter then move on to the next section –tip off the left over glitter back into bowl to use afterwards.
Check for any ‘faults’ – you may find you will need to add a little extra glue in places that may not be as strong.  You might need to add another layer of glitter to make it extra sparkly!
Let your beautiful new Frozen Snowflake dry.  Carefully, shake any excess glitter off and then slowly peel off your masterpiece from the glad bake paper.
Add a small drop of hot glue to the back of your snowflake and attach your ribbon or string & let it set.

Frozen Wreath

Materials: A Styrofoam , White & Blue Tulle – approximately 6inches x 100 yards (15cm x 91.4cms), Blue Christmas Baubles, White &/or Blue Snow flake ornaments, White ribbon - approximately 1 meter, battery operated Christmas lights *optional, Hot Glue Gun

Cut your tulle into strips – the length of this will depend on the size of your wreath. Take a long strip of tulle and tie it around your wreath & double knot it as shown below. If you are happy with that length, take it off & cut the rest of your strips to match.  See below:

Tied about 10 strips of white then 2 strips of blue and so on and so on; but, you can do whatever pattern you like.
Tie your white ribbon somewhere along the wreath (Use a double knot again) so you will be able to hang your wreath.
Keep tying until you have a big fluffy tutu wreath! Take scissors and trimmed my wreath so it was all neat.
The next step is to glue on your snowflake ornaments. As you can see, alternate white & blue & overlapped them slightly
Next glue on your baubles, you can place them all on the wreath first and then glued them on one by one.
Then added my lights…again, this is optional.  They are easy to add, just thread them in and around the tulle and hide the battery pack at the back.
Now hang your wreath.

‘Frozen’ Play dough

Materials: 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of salt, 2 tbs of cream of tartar, 1 tbsp. of oil, Blue food coloring, 1 cup of boiling water, Blue and/or silver glitter

Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil into a large mixing bowl.
Add 5 – 10 drops of the blue food coloring to 1 cup of boiling water.
Add the boiling water and mix well. *Please take care when using boiling water around children.
Add as much glitter as you like! (Probably about 50 grams.)
Stir well until the mixture is well combined.
Roll it out on a flat surface and you are ready for some “Frozen” play dough FUN!
