One of the hardest things about living on the east coast is that we don't have any family nearby, which is especially tough when I have three nephews and nieces growing up without me. So any time I have the chance to go to Kansas to visit them, I take it. Next week my brother and sister-in-law are going on a trip to celebrate their 10th anniversary, a trip that might actually be the first they've taken together without their kids. While they are gone, I'm going to Kansas (yay!) to help my mom watch my nephews and niece for the week. Last time K and I were in Kansas we all went and saw Disney's FROZEN together so I thought it would be fun to put together a FROZEN scavenger hunt to do with the kids while I'm there. This would also be a lot of fun for a FROZEN party or just an afternoon with your kids.
For the scavenger hunt, I picked up a bunch of FROZEN stuff from Walmart while I was buying my Valentine's day gifts for Richie and designed my scavenger hunt challenges using the fun stuff I picked up. It was pretty hard picking out what to buy from all of the FROZEN goodies.
I asked how I could get one of the bags and found out that they were giving them out with Fresh Fit for Kids Meals. In addition, with the purchase of a Fresh Fit for Kids Meal at a Subway Walmart you can get a free FROZEN keychain right now. I had to buy a Kids Meal just to get the bag and lucky enough for me, my bag also came with a fun FROZEN puzzle inside, perfect for one of my scavenger hunt challenges.
I am so excited to give all of this stuff to my family but by far my favorite is this spinning Olaf toy. He spins, talks, and asks for a warm hug.
I'm not sure our spinning Olaf will actually make it to Kansas with us if K has anything to say about it. He was fascinated for at least ten minutes, which is unheard of these days
When I got home, I got to work designing challenges that would be fun for my super active, creative, and fun loving family. The first challenge I came up with was saving Princess Elsa, Princess Anna, and Olaf from a frozen fate. I will simply put the three figurines in a thing of water and let it freeze overnight. I know my nephews will love breaking the ice block to save the princesses.
After saving the princesses from a frozen fate, my nephews will have to find Olaf who will be waiting for them with a puzzle to complete. And their prize for completing his puzzle? A warm hug of course. On the back of the puzzle, I wrote a clue to help them find their final challenge.
After completing Olaf's puzzle, they can move on to the reindeer rescue. I printed out a bunch of reindeer hoof prints and am planning to hide them around the house, and my nephews will have to search around the house to find them. Once they've found all of the hidden reindeer hooves, they will be able to rescue Sven from the snow monster (aka my mom).
After they've completed all of their challenges, I thought it would be fun to take them to Walmart to finish off our #FrozenFun with Fresh Fit for Kids Meals from Subway, complete with their own FROZEN bags and keychains. I really hope that my nephews and niece have as much fun with the scavenger hunt as I did coming up with the ideas.
