My kids are fully obsessed with the new Frozen movie from Disney. You may remember my post about the press pre screening we were invited to, but what you don't know is that we loved it so much that we actually went back to the theater that same week and watched it again. That's a lot of love.
Both of them are dying for the movie to come out and are broken hearted about the fact that it's going to be months until we can watch it whenever we want at home, so we've decided to bring some Frozen fun home while we wait. First up on the list was doing a craft I've been wanting to do for a while: snowflake window clings.
To make DIY Snowflake Window Clings you will need:
- Tulip Glitter or Puffy Paint
- Wax Paper
- Snowflake pattern from the Disney Frozen site
You can find Frozen snowflake templates on the Disney Digital Painter site. I covered a coloring page with Frozen snowflakes in various configurations and then printed it.
To do your snowflakes, simply cover your template with wax paper and carefully trace the outline with your puffy paints. Use a liberal amount of paint as thin layers will not survive peeling away from the wax paper.
After your kids are done, make sure you help the kids connect all the lines so they can be removed as one piece after drying. Allow them to dry for 24 hours until the paint is no longer wet and then peel away from the wax paper gently to keep the snowflakes intact.
Place on windows and enjoy. If your snowflakes aren't sticking very well, you can use some small glue dots, or you can use the sticky peel that comes on gift cards, mailers, or credit cards to hold up your creations.
Add in some Frozen toys and you have all the makings for a fun afternoon. Looking for more snowflake templates? My friend Amanda at The Frugal Greenish Mama has a snowflake window cling craft with even more snowflakes templates to trace and enjoy. I sense a glitter blizzard in our future.
