Hello Kindoma community! My name is Alexa, and I am the newest member of the Kindoma team. I primarily handle all the marketing and communications for Kindoma, but also will be guest blogging on topics that affect all of us who have kids in our lives!
As one of the only members of Kindoma who does not have children, I look at things through a different lens than the rest of the team. In reality, a lot of us do not have children of our own, or we do not have children of the age demographic we are trying to connect with. Whether you’re an aunt, cousin, grandparent, god-parent, care-giver, (the list goes on!), we all want to connect and be relevant to the children in our lives.
On this topic, if you know any child at all, you have most likely heard of Disney’s newest (and highest grossing of all time) animated movie – Frozen!!!! Just say the word and you’ll probably hear the movie’s majorly popular song ‘Let it Go’, which knocked Beyonce out of the number one spot on the Billboard charts, ringing through your ears! Needless to say, this movie is HUGE. And kids are obsessed. Super obsessed. So naturally for you to stay the coolest aunt/cousin/grandma…(you get the point), EVER, you need to be up to date on all the questions to ask.
First things first. We’re assuming if you don’t have children at home you haven’t seen Frozen. If you have, good for you, you’re awesome!! But if you fell asleep or need a refresher, I’m going to try to give you a quick synopsis of Frozen.
Princess Elsa has (secret) magical powers that make everything she touches turn to ice. Elsa spends most of her life in isolation fearful she may hurt someone else, particularly her beloved younger sister, Princess Anna. Years go by, Anna meets a prince charming, Elsa doesn’t want to be a part of it, and flees to the mountains to create a magical private ice palace. Problem: she accidentally froze the whole land (ie. ‘Frozen’). Prince charming turns out to be the villain, and puts Anna in peril only to be saved by an act of true love. Anna saves Elsa, and it turns out the act of true love was not from the prince as expected, but between sisters! Elsa and Anna rekindle their special sisterly bond! THE END.
Ok obviously lots happens in between. But you get the idea.
Here is a list of 5 questions to ask your Frozen-obsessed child next time you speak to them:
I understand that you love the movie Frozen.
1) What is Elsa’s special power? If you could have one special power, what would it be? Why?
Answer: She has power over the ice and snow.
2) Who do you like best, Elsa or Anna? – Dig a little deeper. What do you like about Elsa? Does she remind you of anyone you know?
3) What was the snowman’s name? Does he love hugs? What else does he love?
Answers: Olaf, yes he loves hugs, and he also loves Summer.
4) Were you sad when Olaf started melting? Do you remember what he said to Anna? It was so nice!
Answer: Some people are worth melting for.
Who do you think is worth melting for?
5) What was the act of love that saves the kingdom?
Answer: When the evil Prince Hans tries to kill Elsa, Anna jumps between them and saves her!
Hopefully this will help you have a great conversation about Frozen! Let us know how it goes in the comments below, or on social media!! Also feel free to request a topic you would like covered - we're always looking for ideas!
