Hey there! Hi there! Ho there! Mickey Mouse recently sent us a party in a box! Actually they sent enough stuff for 5 parties!! Our assignment? Create a play date for our preschool friends that celebrates all of the Theme Parks at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Whoa it was no small task but we were SO excited about all the surprises Mickey sent and ultimately had a wonderful time creating these five unique parties. Check out the decor, games, activities and snacks for each of the theme parks, plus one party featuring Mickey. The kids we invited went Disney crazy! It was an epic Disney day and we hope you’ll find at least few ideas you love:
#1 CLASSIC MICKEY MOUSE PARTY
The Snacks > We ordered plain vanilla and chocolate cupcakes from our grocery store bakery and added Mickey Ears made out of Oreo Thins!
The Drinks > We mixed up Nesquik chocolate milk (sent to us by Mickey) and served in mini glasses. Talk about a decadent treat for the kiddos and the Mommies. I hadn’t had Nesquik in years and am now secretly coveting it after the kids are down at night – eek!
Decor & Favors > Mickey contributed the party decorations, plates, cups and napkins as well as the Disney Junior back packs which we packed with goodies including a Lion King poster, Kion backpack pull, Walt Disney World map, temporary tattoos, Disney coloring pages, crayons and more!
The Game > We played Pin The Smile on Mickey Mouse on a larger then life-sized Mickey. Check back next week to get the details on how you can create this game at home!
#2 MAGIC KINGDOM INSPIRED
The Snacks > At our pretty, pink tea party for the little princesses we served yummy Strawberry Wands! Not only was it delicious (and mostly healthy) but the children really loved the art of dipping and rolling in whipped cream and sprinkles! See the full recipe for our Strawberry Fairy Wands here.
#3 DISNEY’S ANIMAL KINGDOM INSPIRED
The Games > Our box of goodies from Mickey came with a pack of safari animals and we set up a group activity at this table to name the animals and make their sounds. It’s an age-perfect game and toddlers are quite good at growling, snarling and yelping especially after being hopped up on whipped cream and sprinkles!!
The Snack > For our table centerpiece we created the Disney’s Animal Kingdom Tree of Life out of a broccoli stalk and set up a veggie tray for the Mommies to enjoy. The kids each got a special snack of Hummus and Carrots shaped like Mickey Mouse ears – that’s a link to our recipe. Our toddler tour of Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park was almost as fun as planning our next visit there.
#4 DISNEY HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS INSPIRED
The Game > Disney sent us the supplies to make hand puppets for our favorite Disney Junior characters. So in order for the kiddos to put on a puppet show we crafted a homemade puppet theater made out of a cardboard box. For complete instructions on how we made the puppet theater and the puppet check back next week.
#5 EPCOT INSPIRED
The Games > The bright colors of our Epcot table were so inviting to the children and the loved the two activities we set up: 1) coloring pages of the Epcot ball and 2) matching international coins to the national flag of the country where they’re tendered. For complete details on how to set up both of these activities check back soon – we’re planning another post with links to printables for you!
Our Disney preschool play date was more fun than we ever imagined!! We hope you found a few ideas for your next Disney at home celebration! See ya real soon!
