My kids are obsessed with Frozen. I hate to be a meanie, but I’ve heard “Let It Go” sung so many times in this house that I sometimes make them stop. There is only so much Frozen I can take. I do still let them watch the movie, but I need a week or three in between viewings.
Can any other parents relate?
Still, I know that nothing would make my kids happier than getting a Frozen-related present this Christmas.
But I’m cheap, so I don’t want to pay the $50 or more for an Anna or Elsa dress. I want presents that are frugal and still in the spirit of Frozen.
Here are some ideas I’m considering making/buying for my kids:
The Prudent Homemaker shared a tutorial for making an Elsa-inspired crown. She used materials she had on hand, so her cost was less than $1. However, even though I have to buy my supplies, I’m quite sure I can make these fairly cheaply, and the girls will love them. Win!
Olaf is almost as big of a hit around here as Elsa and Anna. Maybe it’s because we’ve moved to Arizona and the kids miss the snow. I’m not sure, but I know this craft from One Creative Mommy looks like a super easy gift to make that the kids will love.
Elsa and Anna Capes
My girls are 4.5 and 6 now, and they love to play dress up. They are constantly wrapping sheets and blankets around their heads or shoulders, so I decided to get them Anna and Elsa capes. I bought one of each for $6.95 from Bailey Blossom’s Etsy shop. Now, I just have to figure out how to get all of the wrinkles out before I give them the gift!
Bookworm loves Frozen almost as much as his sisters, but there isn’t much Frozen merchandise that appeals to boys. I’m planning on making these Olaf shirts for all three kids using Mom Endeavor’s tutorial. I’m not sure if Bookworm will want to wear his out in public, but he can definitely enjoy it while hanging around home.
Are your kids as obsessed with Frozen as mine? If so, are you getting them any Frozen related items for Christmas?
