Is your family singing “Let It Go” nonstop these days? You’re not the only ones. I created a FROZEN play date for my kids and their cousins recently and it was a huge hit. The big kids were singing as they built Elsa’s Ice Castles and everyone got a kick out of my Melted Olaf Dip perfect for Eggo Frozen Waffles and fresh fruit. I picked up a few choice Walmart toys to share among the kids and set up snacking and building stations and we had a blast. Best of all, my recipes are healthy and activities are super easy to recreate. We are so pumped for the release of the FROZEN DVD on March 18th, and the discount price drop from $16.96 to $14.96 at Walmart. Grab a $5 off offer on special marked packages of Eggo Waffles and get an even better deal on the FROZEN DVD. Now for the #FROZENFun …
I surprised the kids with a delicious and healthy Melted Olaf Dip for their morning waffles and fruit. They loved it. It was so easy to make and the kids were enthralled. My sister and I took our babes to Walmart to shop for FROZEN gear and Eggo Waffles along with the dip ingredients. A lot of cuteness happened in our cart, as well as one unfortunate ear pulling incident.
Melted Olaf Dip Ingredients:
1/2 cup whipped cream cheese
1 cup Greek yogurt (I like to use the full fat variety for the kids.)
1 tbsp honey
a few drops of vanilla
2 raisins for eyes, 1 carrot for nose, 1 mini marshmallow for teeth, 3 blueberries for buttons, and grape sprigs for hair and arms
Eggo Waffles and fresh fruit for dipping
Mix your first four ingredients in a small zipper plastic bag, then cup the tip off one corner. Use an image of Olaf to draw his outline on a platter or plate, using the hole in the bag to pipe it. Then fill in the line creating a full snowman design. Add your details – eyes, nose, teeth, buttons, hair, and arms. Get ready for dipping fun. We had a talking Olaf host our breakfast and the kids were delighted with his antics. As he so aptly puts it, “Some people are worth melting for.”
When we were ready for a snack and activity, I set up a plate for each child and brought out the same whipped yogurt and cream I used for the Melted Olaf Dip, small kid friendly spreading knives, and a platter full of different sizes and varieties of Eggo Waffles. We had Elsa, Anna, and Olaf on hand from Frozen the Movie to play in the ice castles once built. The kids built and decorated, snacked and rebuilt their own ice castles using the waffles, cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and fruit. They really had a blast and were so proud of their creations. We also played with FROZEN puzzles, and each kid had their own to work with from a box of seven.
