Remakes of Disney’s Song “Let it Go” from Disney’s Animated Film Frozen

Disney’s new Animated movie, Frozen, has certainly left it’s mark on the world winning several awards for the film and for the music. One of my favorite songs from the film is “Let it go” performed by Idina Menzel. I am one of those that jumps up and starts singing as soon as the song starts playing. I can’t help it, it is just…well…Amazing.

There are many different remakes of the song.

Some continue the beauty of the song and almost bring tears to your eyes. Like the one by Alex Boyé (Africanized Tribal Cover) Ft. One Voice Children’s Choir

Then you have those that have a little fun with it like Pentatonix making a FROZEN MEDLEY:

But I think the most creative thus far is the one Brian Hull Published on Mar 14, 2014. Brian Hull sang “Let it Go” in several different character voices. He stated, “With so many covers of Let it Go coming out, people may forget the original Disney magic that this song has, so what better way to preserve that magic with other Disney and Pixar characters singing the song!” Trust me he does it justice. I found myself in almost tears laughing as I watched his facial expressions as he performed the song on camera in the recording studio.

It is a must watch.

Enjoy the music 😀

Not every puppy is perfect for every person, and the Pound Puppies are dedicated to making sure their furry friends end up in the right hands!

I love that the episodes share lessons of courage, confidence, working together, and faith. Each lesson is blended with wonderful puppy entertainment that most kids are sure to enjoy.

Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom in the Animated Feature Frozen.

While they race to save the kingdom from an endless winter, how about we enjoy what is left of ours. So I have one question…

Do you want to build a snowman?

Ok, maybe not Marshmallow, but Olaf would be fun to build. his cute little nose is like a baby unicorn. 😀

Cubeecrafts of Alien and Predator and a Free AvP Tic Tac Toe Printable

Alien and Predator Cubeecraft and Printable SKGaleana

Today, while updating my DeiviantArt Page and viewing art by friends and followers, I found 3 very cool cubeecrafts that I thought were well worth the share.

In 2004 Alien Vs Predator was released on DVD. Placing two of the most feared creatures in outer-space against each other in a battle to the death. I had seen all of the Alien movies and all of the Predator movies, so this release was something I looked forward to. Had I been into Cosplay in 2004, I would have dressed up like Predator and saw the movie in style. However, the lack of costume did not take away from the epic battle between these two races.

Movie story:
During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.

It has been almost 10 years since the release of AvP and for me, it is still an epic movie. Which is why, when I found these cubeecrafts, I had to download them myself and share them. Below are two Predator Cubeecrafts made by Cyberdrone and an Alien Made by TaxisFlashDude. Feel free to download them, print and create them. They make awesome desk ornaments or paper toys. Be sure to visit the sites of those who created them and check out there other paper crafts and cubeecrafts.

To download the Predators simply click the images below and save them to your computer.
To download the Alien click the image. It will take you to the DeviantArt Page. There on the right click download and save the sip to your computer.:D

Predator Without Mask

As an added bonus, I have included my Alien Vs Predator Tic Tac Toe. Now you can perform your very own game of AvP. It works just like regular Tic Tac Toe. The first to get three in a row wins.

Print on Card stock
Cut out the board and pieces along the solid black lines
Play Rock, Paper Scissors to see who goes first
The first Player places a token on the board in one of the squares.
The second person goes next
The first to get three in a row, across or diagonal, wins.

Pixie Hallow Games Party Printables and Activities

With winter finally taking a step back and spring jumping forward we search for activities to do outside of the house. Sometimes that can be difficult but the Disney Movie Pixie Hallow Games gives us a perfect way to combine friends, fun and party all outdoors. As an added bonus these games also help strengthen friendship, teamwork and a “Can Do” attitude

The Movie is about “Tinker Bell and her fairy friends as they compete in Disney’s animated adventure, Pixie Hollow Games. Rosetta and new arrival Chloe band together to try to break the garden fairies’ legendary losing streak in this incredible sports spectacle filled with pixie pageantry, fantastic fairy events and hilarious surprises. Clank and Bobble call the action as Rosetta and Chloe face off against the storm fairies, Rumble and Glimmer, who are vying for their fifth championship ring.”

Like the Movie We can throw our own Pixie Hallow Games by printing out the activities below and a little planning. They are free to download, print and create.

First send out the invitations. Make sure all the players know when and where the games will be held.

Print out the fitness Guides. These are games by each type of Fairy. Instructions are included in each PDF. Collect all the items needed for the games. Have dedicated spaces for each event with an area around the yard for the fans to stand and watch. There are 6 PDFs with two games each so you will need 12 spots for the games.
Have the kids compete in these games to earn Trading cards, certificates, stickers, Friendship Bracelets, Headbands, or rings (see free printables). A large Poster Board with everyone’s names written on it can be used to keep track of the wins.

Give each player a goodie bag with a pair of goggles, Spirit Fingers and playbook so that they can look the part of a player and root for their favorite player. The Play Book includes small activities such as mazes, match the fairy to the flag and a word search.

The Silly Spinner and the Leapfrogging kit make great side games in between the larger activities.

After the activities, be sure to plan some down time. Provide drinks snacks and maybe watch the Movie Pixie Hollow Games.

Winx Club Printable Masks, Paper Dolls and Coloring Pages

After I had received several requests to post some Winx Club printables, I spent the last two weeks watching seasons 1-5 and the 9 episodes of season 6 that have been released. Obviously I couldn’t stop watching and never wanted to go to bed. In fact, there were several sleepless nights of me watching the winx fairies save the magical realms from evil. In each of their missions, the Winx learn what it means to be a friend, the power of believing in yourself, the strength of courage, and the importance of trust. .

I enjoyed watching this tv series so much, that I have continued my search for some fun printables. I keep an eye for anything new from and I check new sites each day to see if there is anything worth posting.

My first post consisted of Bookmarks, Stickers, Post Cards, invitations, Coloring Pages and Wallpapers for your Desktop. You can find these Winx printables on my site by clicking the image Below.

This time I found Paper Dolls, masks, and the alphabet coloring pages.

In the table below are the Alphabet coloring pages, Masks, and paper dolls. Feel free to download, print and create. Just remember these are for your personal use only and cannot be sold or used commercially.

Cubeecraft of Jeremie Belpois from Code Lyoko

Jeremie is a member of the Lyoko Warriors, a team bent on defeating an artificial intelligence known as Xana who wants to destroy the world. Jeremie and his friends Odd, Yumi, Ulrich and Aelita fight Xana in a world known as Lyoko, a computer program where Towers are activated and deactivated that affect the outside world in different ways. The show often depicts the struggles Jeremie and the other characters have in balancing their lives verses their virtual lives.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremie is the geek/nerd of the group. He seems to have infinite knowledge when it comes to the world of computers and is, at first, the only one able to send his friends to Lyoko. Without Jeremie, the Lyoko Warriors would never have existed.

~~Jeremy (Jeremie) Belpois is what you might call :an endearing nerd.” He’s a techie whiz, living in a world of process and equations. As a top-of-the-class genius, he is quite articulate when it comes to computer-related subjects, but often stumbles over his words when it comes to girls.

~~As the only one who can work the super computer, he never goes to Lyoko (but once or twice). But he stays in contact wit the virtual world through Aelita. He seeks to pull her from X.A.N.A.’s grasp and to discover the secret of her past.

Materials needed:
Card stock
x-acto knife

To make:

  1. Cut out each item along the outer black lines.
  2. Cut along the white on each tab using the x-acto knife
  3. Cut along each red line using the x-acto knife
  4. Cut along the top hair using an x-acto knife. This will allow it to remain straight and not bend when you fold the cubeecraft. See the 3d image for assistance
  5. Fold along each inner solid black line and slide each tab into the slots created with an x-acto knife to form a cube of the head, body, arms, and feet
  6. Slide the arms through the red slots on either side of the body.
  7. Slide the feet through the red slots at the base of the body.
  8. Slide the now completed body through the red lots of the head.

He is done. To download this cubeecraft click the links below and save them to your computer. Then print and create!

St Patricks day disney printables SKGaleana

March 17th is the day that I pray I always remember to wear green. There was a year that St. Patrick’s Day completely slipped my mind. Boy was I sorry. Every time I turned around I was being pinched. From then on, I have that date highlighted, circled and arrows pointing to the date on my calendar. Must…Not…Forget.

To help myself remember, I also add a few decorations around the house. That way St. Patrick’s Day is constantly in my face and on my mind (no more pinches for me). Disney provides a few paper crafts that are awesome to print, create and display. Everyone needs a Mickey standing next to a pot of gold somewhere in their house for St. Patrick’s Day.

What better way to distract them from pinching every person who lacks green somewhere on their body? Pull out a color sheet, give them a green crayon, a let the fun begin.
