Last Wednesday we met up with several of our readers at Aloha Shave Ice and Coffee Shoppe for a Frozen Play date. As soon as the clock struck 10:00 a.m., princesses and princes started showing up for the fun!
We set up in the back field behind Aloha, which is a great space for any small party or gathering. When our guests started to arrive, each child was able to pick a button with the Frozen characters on it provided by our friends over at the Disney Store in Quail Springs Mall, while the moms entered four fabulous givewaways, all with a “frozen” theme! We had 2-for-1 passes to Arctic Edge in Edmond, a $50 gift certificate to The Rink in Bethany, a family four-pack of tickets for a game to the OKC Barons and two $20 gift cards to Aloha, our host for the day!
Some great activities were in place while we anxiously awaited the arrival of the Ice Queen. We had a “Do you want to build a snowman?” table set up with play dough. All of the children loved getting their hands on the dough and making their version of Olaf, or just mixing all the colors. 🙂
The Disney store also generously shared coloring and activity sheets for our guests to decorate and then we had a round of Pin the Nose on Olaf and Frozen Trivia (which, all the kids knew every.single. answer to!)
As the morning went on, the temperature rose and made everyone want to dive into a snow ball or iced coffee from Aloha Shave Ice! Everyone commented that they were De-Lic-Ious! Do you know what makes Aloha so amazing? They have the option of getting your shave ice “Hawaiian style”. Aloha puts vanilla ice cream into the bottom of the bowl, adds the shaved ice and flavor and completes it with cream on top! And if you didn’t have time to make breakfast or lunch before running out to sample their coffee, they serve food as well.
And at the moment when the sun was threatening to melt us all, the Ice Queen herself (provided by Forever After Parties), showed up to save us! All of the children jumped to their feet and joined Elsa in a moving round of “Let it Go”! They were transported into a magical place and sang their hearts out.
