Who else has kiddos excited for the DVD release of Disney's FROZEN the movie next week?  
And who are we kidding, parents?  We are all just excited as the kids are for this one, right? ;)

Baby girl and I decided to start getting geared up for the big DVD release by heading to our local Walmart earlier this week for a few new FROZEN toys.  You really can't have too many, you know... 
We were on the lookout for an Olaf plush doll, but people really do adore that lovable snowman.  Anything Olaf has been flying off the shelves.
But she did find an adorable Baby Anna doll to love on among a few other things... :)

FROZEN was baby girl's very first movie in the big theater.  She did pretty well with it. Only a few wiggly, restless moments.  But for the most part, she was all about Elsa, and Anna, and of course Olaf!  
Olaf was probably our favorite character from the entire FROZEN movie. :)

After a fun morning of playing with her new FROZEN toys & modeling her new favorite t-shirt, we decided it was time for a snack break.  
I surprised her with a fun and healthy snack inspired by her favorite FROZEN character- Olaf! 
Fun & Healthy Olaf Waffle Snacks
by Frugal Foodie Mama
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2-3 minutes
  • Your favorite Eggo waffles (one for each person)
  • Grapes, sliced in half
  • Blueberries
  • Orange, peeled and segmented
  • Kiwi, peeled and sliced
For the yogurt spread (aka, the snow)
  • 1 cup low fat or nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup lite whipped topping, thawed
Toast your Eggo waffles in your toaster to your preference.

In a small bowl, mix together the vanilla yogurt and whipped topping.
Spread enough of the yogurt mixture on each waffle to cover it.
This will be the base for the Olaf face (ahem... the snow.)
You can do this part for younger children and allow older children to spread on the yogurt mixture themselves.

Allow the children to create their own Olaf faces on their yogurt "frosted" waffles using the prepared fruit.
You can, of course, use any fruit that you would like for this. The above listed ones are just what we used and found fun.

Make sure to snap pictures of the kiddos' creations!
Eat & enjoy! :)

Baby girl really did think this was the best thing ever.  She started off very nice and neat, placing one piece of fruit here on the waffle & another one there...
And then it became an all-out fruit fest! :) Younger kids like my little one will just love the creativity and freedom of playing with the fruit and yogurt.
Older children will probably get a kick out of seeing who can come up with the best and most creative Olaf face.

Okay, so her's doesn't look much like Olaf...  Well, maybe after he took a few tumbles and his head popped off and he lost his carrot nose?  But she had fun and made herself a healthy and delicious snack in the process! 
You can see she is quite pleased with her creation. ;)

Now you all know I have to share a good deal with you when I know of one.  If you are wanting to get your hands on a copy of the FROZEN DVD...
It will be on sale at your local Walmart on March 18th with a price drop from $16.96 to $14.96 ! 
PLUS, you can get an additional $5 off when you purchase one of the specially marked 24 count packages of Eggo Waffles! 
(You case you weren't doing the math, that is less than $10 for the FROZEN movie on DVD!  :) )

Who is your favorite FROZEN character?  Which ones do your kiddos love? :)
