Time to call in sick to work, because for the first time in forever, the Disney hit Frozen is available to watch as many times as you want on iTunes! So you’ve seen the movie while munching popcorn in the theater and you’ve even channeled your inner Elsa with a few hundred of your closest friends at the movie’s special sing-along screenings—but now, as we’re counting down the days until Idina Menzel performs “Let It Go” at the Oscars, we present five brand new ways to watch Frozen in the comfort of your own home.
Grab Your Friends For a Live-Reading
There’s probably a good couple of years until Frozen hits Broadway, but until then, gather up your pals and debut your own live-action Frozen in your living room. Rock that side braid, buy an Elsa costume on Etsy (or if you don’t have $2,000 to spare, make your own), turn on the subtitles and don’t hold back anymore!
Build a Backyard Replica of Olaf
The only thing more fun than listening to “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” is building a snowman while watching Anna sing “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” Grab your iPad, run out into the polar vortex and build your very own Olaf in the backyard. Just uh, make sure your tablet’s resting on a dry surface. And make sure it's under warranty.
Play a Sub-Zero Drinking Game
If you’re over 21, mix up a batch of Frozen floats (blue Kool-Aid with vodka and vanilla ice cream, patent pending) and chug whenever Elsa uses her magic powers, whenever Olaf says the word “summer” and whenever any character bursts into song. So basically, you’ll be drunk in the first 15 minutes. You’re welcome.
Throw Props at the Screen
OK, so you could try throwing props at the movie theater a la Rocky Horror, but good luck getting past “Frozen Heart” without getting kicked out by an usher. At home, you’re free to toss snowy cotton balls in the air, hurl mini-marshmallows at your cat and of course, shoot ice-blue silly string at the TV.
Host a Frozen Feast
What Frozen screening party would be complete without a table full of ice-cold treats? Make a tray of blue raspberry Jell-O and cut it into adorable ice cubes, use marshmallows to make Olaf pops and if you’ve really got some time on your hands, go all out and make a Frozen icicle cake. Just try not to eat the whole thing before your friends come over like you did at your Wicked party.
