We are totally excited for the new movie Norm of the North coming out this week! We decided to get our shake on and make an Arctic Polar Bear Milkshake!
Are you ready to meet Norm? He’s a lovable, talkative polar bear from the Arctic, and he’s headed to NYC to prevent his home from being overtaken by developers. With a few friends by his side, Norm takes on the Big Apple, big business, and a big identity crisis as he tries to save the day!
Change can be difficult for kids when something new seems scary. But, it’s great to take the plunge and reap the rewards when you learn to get out of your comfort zone every once in awhile. My 5 year old just started swimming lessons again after the Christmas break, and this time there is a big challenge.
She is learning to swim the entire length of the pool, and it’s scary. There’s been some tears, but this week she was very brave and took that plunge and swam right across with her teacher. To celebrate we’re going to see Norm of the North this week! I think it’s going to really stick with her to see Norm doing something big, too.
Norm and his buddies have put together an awesome video to get you ready for the movie! It’s called the Arctic Shake and it even has instructions so you and your family can “Shake Your Bear Thing!” Check it out:
We put on our matching Norm of the North socks and danced right along!
After dancing, it was time for an Arctic Polar Bear Milkshake. We made milkshakes to look like polar bears! I dipped the glasses in candy shreds to look “fuzzy” like a bear.
I’m not a huge fan of coconut, so instead of topping our glasses with coconut, I found these awesome white candy shreds. But, if you love coconut, it will work great, too! I dip the very edge of the glass in corn syrup and then in a bowlful of these white candy shreds. After carefully filling the glass with milkshake, I used black glitter frosting gel to create a polar bear face. Then, I add a few pinches of white candy shreds to add a little fuzziness to the rest of his face.
A frozen treat just perfect for winter
