My little boys adore Disney’s Frozen. Months after the movie’s premiere, they still act out their favorite scenes and sing along with Let it Go. The movie helped them internalize the incredibly positive messages about being yourself and putting loved ones first, so I don’t mind watching it over and over again with them. (Plus, Olaf is hilarious. It’s fun to laugh together!)
This past weekend, we used some leftover turquoise ribbon from their birthday party last March to create Frozen Inspired Snowflake Ornaments. The “Elsa Ornaments,” as my youngest calls them, are a refreshing break from the traditional red, greens, and golds of Christmas and look beautiful hanging on the tree.

Frozen Inspired Snowflake Ornaments
White snowflakes embellished with turquoise and translucent white glitter add a beautiful touch of color to the Christmas tree. This snowflake ornament exercised fine-motor skills and gave my boys some practice with patience. (They wanted to get right to painting, but the glue was still too wet!)
- Mini Craft Sticks
- Glitter Sample Pack, Winter
- Tacky Craft Glue
- Glossy White Acrylic Paint
- Turquoise Ribbon (I couldn’t find an exact link on Amazon, but if it helps, the ribbon I used is from Michael’s.)
1. Invite your child to glue 4 mini craft sticks together into the shape of a snowflake. Allow the snowflake to dry completely before painting. To save time in a group setting, an adult may wish to assemble the snowflakes prior to crafting.
2. Paint the snowflakes. Sprinkle turquoise and translucent white glitter over the wet paint. Allow the snowflakes to dry completely.
3. Use the glue to attach a loop of ribbon onto the back of each snowflake.
