“Just do the next right thing. Take a step, step again. It is all that I can to do the next right thing.”-Anna, Frozen II
“Next Right Thing” from Frozen II is a song I am feeling in my bones these days. What about you? It’s hard to know what the ‘next right thing’ is right now. The world is confusing, and even scary, for us all. So what do we do? The next right thing.
This game started out as just a red light/green light sort of thing, but then my brilliant older sister (you should check out her blog here– she has lots of Disney magic, too) made the suggestion of making a Candy Land-esque type game for Frozen. So, I decided to mix the two ideas into one fun game!
How do you play?
The game board is much like Candy Land. The squares are different colors, and there are color cards to print. You draw a card, and you go to the color on the board! However, if you don’t want to do that much printing/cutting- you can always use a die and just roll for how many spaces to move!
On the board there are snowflake squares to go with the snowflake cards. These are “Do the next right thing” scenarios.
Someone else reads the card to the turn-taker, and he/she can choose what the next right thing to do is. If he/she is right- they move forward a few steps! If not, a few steps back. If you’re letting littles play on their own (who maybe can’t read all the words), you can always skip this part of the game.
The snowflake cards naturally became the goal in our house, even for the youngest dragon who didn’t quite understand (he kept just saying the last thing he heard with the answer choices).
Do The Next Right Thing!
When I printed the game, I glued it to a thin box from amazon to make it more like a board. If you have the ability to print it bigger, I say go for it! But it’s not necessary. I glued all the pieces/cards to card stock to make them sturdier in hopes they’ll last longer (my dragons are hard on games).
If you’ve been playing a lot of games while social distancing, this is a good way to mix things up. Make sure to tag DIY Disney Days on social media if you snap a pic of your kiddos (or adults in your life) having fun with this!
WARNING: Lots of printables coming up. Printing the game board is necessary, but everything else is really up to you and how you want to play the game.
