Turn a traditional Disney Plus movie night into a family Disney movie night PARTY that builds family connections and closeness with these four easy Frozen 2 party game and food ideas! Anna and Else knew how to move forward during hard times to do the next right thing because of what they learned from their family’s stories. Likewise, knowing and talking about your family’s stories can help your family make it through hard times, too!
For a fun Easter craft, have your family draw self-portraits on plastic Easter eggs. You can draw on half of the egg, like these. Or draw on the entire egg and place coins in the bottom of the eggs to help them stand upright.

Many studies have shown that children who know their family’s stories are better able to cope with emotions and challenges.

Not only is it fun (aka, nonstop laughter!), but it’s also a great way to capture your family’s story through favorite memories.
