This Frozen inspired shadow box scene features neutral and cool colors and textures. The color palette is gorgeous and is relatable to my experience of winter. Your child will enjoy using similar hued loose parts to create unique shadow box scenes.
Although I live in an area with a long snowy season, it hasn’t always been easy to find winter themed play accessories. I learned that if you haven’t bought your snowmen crafts and toys before Christmas, you’ve missed your chance. And it’s hard to find snowmen décor that isn’t adorned in green and red and draped in holly.
The same goes for fake snow or any winter themed crafts. They often go hand in hand with Christmas. And that’s in a city with a winter season that lasts through March.
So, I especially embrace the winter setting and turquoises, pinks, and purples in Frozen I. These are colors I can relate to when my city is covered in ice and snow. And the hues take center stage in this invitation to create a Frozen inspired shadow box scene.
