It’s a big week in our house. It’s K’s birthday, and Disney’s FROZEN came out on DVD. Both a huge deal for my girls.
Because K is so obsessed with FROZEN, it is only fitting that her birthday gifts should reflect all things Frozen. It took some hunting, but I was able to find plenty of FROZEN toys and books to celebrate my girl’s special day.
Before we even saw the movie, K proclaimed that FROZEN was the best movie ever because it was about two princesses — just like herself and her sister. She went on to tell us that she was just like Elsa with her long blonde hair and Sissy was just like Anna because they had similar hair.
An obvious stretch since Sissy looks nothing like Anna with her blonde ringlets. Nonetheless, Sissy seemed happy to play the role of Anna, so we all went with it. For Christmas K got an Elsa doll and costume and Sissy an Anna doll and costume and the princess roles were set.
Because of the story of princess sisters has become so important to my girls, my favorite birthday find was the book A Tale Of Two Sisters. Not only is it an early reader book (level 2), but it lead me to a fantastic idea.
A Sister Tradition
Baby sister is too little to understand why K gets presents on her birthday and she doesn’t have anything to open. (A tough thing for littles to understand.) In order to make her feel included, I planned to pick up a couple of small things so she would have something to open. And I was thrilled when I found the last two FROZEN Play Packs on the shelf and a FROZEN board book. Perfect for Sissy (and only $1 each!).
But as I stared at the FROZEN sisters on the packages of gifts, I thought of something even more special than is giving Sissy a small gift on K’s birthday.
When Sissy was born, she “gave” her big sister an American Girl Bitty Baby. That Bitty Baby has always been very special to K, and she loves it more because Sissy gave it to her.
With that first gift in mind, I decided K should give the gifts to her sister. It can be a special treat from the birthday girl. As I thought about it more and more, I realized that it can become a special tradition between my girls. Each giving their sister a small gift on their own birthday.
It’s perfect. Not big gift, after all it shouldn’t outshine the birthday girl, but a little something. A simple way for each sister to show she is thinking of the other on her special day. I love it, and we are starting this new traditional immediately.
Free Printable Frozen Birthday Card
The one thing I was not able to find in my shopping was a FROZEN birthday card. So in order to stay with the theme, I decided to make one. Featuring both sisters, it is the perfect card to celebrate our big girl.
The card is designed to be printed as a 5×7 card and works perfectly with borderless 5×7 photo paper.
