Trolls - Get Dancin'!!

Trolls® get you dancing from the moment the movie starts so we thought a Trolls Dance Party Magic Garden really hit the right chord – disco ball and all. We converted a blooming sidewalk planter into the Troll’s secret hideout. The long rope ladder down the front of the planter invites those walking by to enjoy the secret Troll party. You got this party started with some sunshine in your pocket.

Make the Magic Garden

  • How about a Troll Tree?
  • Should we include the Bergens?
  • Can their be Troll Pods?
  • What music should we listen to while creating?
  • Plant with poppys?
  • Solar lights?
  1. Choose a location that is a secret
  2. Hang the disco ball with fish line
  3. Place a dance floor on balsa wood
  4. Make and attach the ladder but hide from the Bergens
  5. Attach the acorn lanterns
  6. Start the dance party with the Trolls
  • Who’s your favorite Troll and why?
  • Who’s someone you would like to dance with?
  • What is your favorite song in the movie?
  • What would be cool about living in a tree?
