It’s been quite some time since Frozen first appeared in cinemas across Australia and even after six months it is still hugely popular with children (and adults) of all ages. From Frozen dress ups to Frozen dolls and from Frozen parties to Frozen stationery, lunch boxes and more, kids just love the Winter magic. You may not be able to take them on a trip to Arandelle but you can treat them to a Frozen experience much closer to home these school holidays:

Medibank Icehouse Family

Dress up as your favourite Frozen character, put on your ice skates and skate along to the Frozen soundtrack, join the Frozen Karaoke Contest and listen to a special performer singing live on the ice, join the Snowman Building competition and see if you can put Olaf together or win a copy of Frozen on DVD in one of the games, there is plenty of Frozen fun to be had for your little Anna, Elsa or Christof.

Medibank Icehouse Ice Hockey

After a very long and exhausting plane trip we finally made it back to Australia on Saturday morning. Previously we have always come back in summertime and were warmly welcomed by the dry, hot Adelaide weather and bright sun, this time we were unpleasantly surprised by the freezing winter cold. I can not believe how cold it is this year, the only thing missing is snow and frost on the windows! Of course the chances of outdoor snow and ice are still pretty slim here in Australia but luckily there is always the Medibank Icehouse in Melbourne to get your winterspirit up.

It is a shame we are not in Melbourne because I would most certainly take my three to experience the joy of ice skating. As a child I very much enjoyed ice skating in winter time and we couldn’t wait for the local lakes and streams to freeze over. I have very fond memories of skating with family and friends, the crunchy sound of the ice under the sledges and skates and hot chocolate afterwards to warm us up.

You can create your family’s very own winter memories too by visiting the Medibank Icehouse for some fun in the cold, there are loads of options available. From a playful skate intro for the wobbly little ones up to real figure skating, a game of ice hockey or disco skating, speed skating or birthday parties, there are classes and free skating times to suit everyone. Obviously skate hire can be organised on the spot so there is nothing to stop you from trying your stability on the ice.
