FROZEN Activities~ Unfreeze Anna & Troll Rocks!

Whose house hasn't been hit with the Disney's Frozen epidemic!?
I was invited by Design Dazzle to be a guest Camp Counselor this summer!  How exciting!  You can find my guest post HERE.
I have two little girls that are OBSESSED with Frozen. Well, isn't everyone? :) Of course we had to have a Frozen Birthday party this summer and these are a few of the activities we did and the kids loved it! {You can check out some of the other activities we did on this post

 Unfreeze Anna!  

Kids will love trying to save Anna by thawing her "Frozen Heart".

Supplies: Anna Cutout, Plastic Cups {I used 16 oz}, Paper Clips, Water, and Access to a freezer. 


You can laminate the Anna cutouts or you can use packing tape to "laminate" them yourself. Put a paper clip on the bottom to weigh Anna down. Fill the cup with water then place in the freezer overnight.

Tomorrow Anna will be frozen solid and will need to be rescued by your little ones! I turn on the faucet and run a little water over the ice so it will come out of the cup easier. After briefly running the water over the ice, I just hit the cup face down on the table, floor, etc... and the block of ice comes right out! Kids can use warm water in spray bottles or blow dryers to try to set Anna free!


 This is a fun little craft for your kids this summer! A Troll Rock!

 These are the materials you will need: Sheet Moss {I got mine for about $3.50 at Walmart}, Jewels, Grey Felt, Grey Pom Poms, Rocks, Black and White Tempera Paint, Google Eyes, Sharpie, Q-tip, and Glue {you can use kid friendly Tacky Glue or help them with a hot glue gun}

The kids paint their rock grey by mixing the black and white tempera paint. Let it dry. {this won't take that long}

I would make the face first so you make sure there is enough room. If you do the moss first then you may not leave enough room for the face. To make the ears, you cut out a U shape out of the felt and hot glue it to the rock. Make sure to pinch in the middle! After you add the moss on the bottom all around, make sure to use some for the Troll's hair.

 Next, add some jewels. Then, add the troll's smile by using a Sharpie and Q-tip with white paint to make the teeth

Such cute little Trolls! I think I'm going to keep you! ;) {name that movie!} These would be fun to do on just a "boring" summer day or at a Frozen Birthday Party!

Pin It!

July Come Follow Me~ What does it mean to take upon myself the name of Jesus Christ?

These handouts/activities go with the Come Follow Me lesson:
Before the lesson I plan to put one of these "name tags" on all the YW's shirts.

At the beginning of my lesson I was going to show a picture of my Great Grandmother Lucelle Eliza Taylor.  My middle name is Lucelle because I was named after her.  I will share with them a little history about her- she served on the General Primary Board.  Her husband was Vice President of BYU working along side President Wilkinson.  She was a magnificent woman who had served a lot in the church.  

Then, I will share the first 3 paragraphs of Elder Arnold's talk: What Have You Done with My Name?

I will then explain the name tags as we read D&C 20:37, 77
I will explain that when we made a covenant with God that we are willing to take upon us the name of Christ, it is like we are willing to wear his "name tag" with us always. 

We will then do this bullet from the Come Follow Me lesson:
  • Read as a class the last two paragraphs of the talk ("What Have You Done with My Name?"), and invite the young women discuss how they will apply Elder Arnold’s challenge.
Below is a pic of the pages found in the DOWNLOAD HERE.

Page 1 can be used with the above bullet discussing "What Have You Done with My Name?" talk.

Page 2

Page 2 can be used with the "Dare to Stand Alone" video.
I added a little applying the scriptures part you can choose whether to use or not. :)
It's using the story of Abinadi as an example of how we should always stand as a witness of Christ because you never know who is watching or will be effected by your testimony or actions.

I encouraged the girls to wear their "Jesus Christ" name tag the entire day.  Then I posted a "selfie" :) on Instagram pointing to my Jesus Christ sticker.  In the description I said "Who is still wearing it?  Mosiah 18:9 {YW Theme} #standingasawitness #YWtheme #YWlessontoday.  I then tagged all my YW peeps and told them to post a picture and tag their YW classmates.  :)
