You know spring has arrived when Greenfield Village opens for the year. The historic village opens to the public on…
TGIF! We survived the first week at home – well almost! If you need help filling a 12 hour day we’re sharing daily guides full of activities, crafts, nature and games that will help you and your littles have fun at home! Disney+ released Frozen 2 early so there’s a good chance you’ve been watching it on repeat already but let us we’re here to help shake things up.
Outdoor Play Forecast: Windy days with temperatures in 50s.
8:00 AM – Use apples, pancakes or waffles and make an Olaf on their breakfast plate – blueberries, raisins and carrots help too.
9:00 AM – Elsa’s powers are out of control and she created snowflakes that cover the windows and doors (maybe some icicle lights from Christmas too)! Give the neighbors something to look at on their walk and put up paper snowflakes for passersby to admire.
10:00 AM – Find a rock or twos and make trolls to leave hidden at a near by park for other kids to find.
11:00 AM – Go into the unknown and change up your neighborhood walking route too.
12:00 PM – Say it with me, ‘We finish each others – sandwiches!’ An easy lunch with some Olaf noses for extra vitamins. Put a couple water bottles in the freezer for an afternoon science project.
3:00 PM – Elsa’s at it again and making ice towers in the kitchen. This fun science experiment only requires water and food coloring.
4:00 PM – It’s been a long week, get dressed up in your royal best for family dinner – mom and dad too!
5:00 PM – While you’re making dinner let the kids check out the LEGO Frozen Northern Lights series.
6: 00 PM – Put on the Frozen soundtrack and have snowball fight with socks.
7:00 PM – Head to Twitter for the #GadBookClub at 7pm and let Josh Gad (aka Olaf) read tonight’s bedtime story. Follow it up with Kristin Bell’s (aka Anna) reading of Quackenstein Hatches a Family via Storyline Online.
8:00 PM – Bedtime! You survived.
We know that times are hard and resources can be scarce. Please note that these activities are simply meant to be a guide to help you fill the day and inspire ideas that fit your family. Try all of the activities, just a couple, or binge Peppa and cuddle on couch – whatever makes your family feel happy and safe during times of uncertainty is the best thing to do.
