Elsa Frozen Play dough | Here Come the Girls

Elsa Frozen Play dough

The twins are totally addicted to watching Youtube videos of people making play dough dresses for their dolls. Last week they enjoyed playing with some princess play dough and using it to make dresses for their dolls. It was inevitable that they would ask for some Disney Frozen play dough. Frozen is their current favourite movie and anything Frozen themed is bound to be a big hit.

Elsa’s Transformation

The girls loved the part of the film where Elsa transforms into a snow Queen. I thought some sparkly blue play dough would work well. They could make Elsa a beautiful snow Queen dress.

I had Sleeping Beauty help me make the play dough. She was rather trigger happy with the glitter but other than that did a good job.

We made some blue play dough using blue food colouring and a looooooooot of glitter.

We also made some white play dough and added silver glitter.

  • sequins
  • buttons
  • ribbons

The other girls were poorly and this was a great activity to keep Rose busy as we were stuck inside.

Of course you also need the Frozen soundtrack to play in the background. This activity really needs the dulcet tones of “Let it go!” in the background. I’m sure you haven’t heard it enough times yet.

We made this play dough at the weekend and the girls have played with it for at least an hour each day. I know a lot of people don’t like play dough because of the mess but really five minutes tidying up afterwards is worth it for the hour of peace and quiet it gives you.

I used a chopping board covered in tin foil for the girls to do the play dough on. This looks cold and icy and has the added advantage that you can throw it away with all the little bits in one go.

Rose had to have her own transformation and decided to change into her Anna costume.

The play dough also makes a lovely bed for sleep overs with the other princesses too.

We also added some dark blue glitter to one ball of play dough and this made a slightly darker dress.

Queen Elsa from Frozen


To go with this we have been making a cardboard ice palace for the girls to play with. It’s almost dry and then I can show you how it’s turned out.

We also used our letter cookie cutters to make letters to spell out Frozen.

This was our princess play dough from last week (I can’t link at the moment as I’m having problems with WordPress – but you can find it through the homepage)

My girls played with this princess play dough for over two hours. It was such a fun sensory activity.

  6. Love this – really original. My kids hated using up the play doh and despite my best attempts to add glitter etc they were always reluctant.

  8. This is an amazing idea!!! Ethan loves Frozen as well, and he might not be into making dresses, but we could certainly use that sparkly play dough to make the ‘icy castle’ which he loves!

  11. I know you won’t believe this, because I’m probably the only person in the world who can say it, but I haven’t actually heard Let it Go yet… There are some advantages to having a Princess-averse son.
