Everyday can be a #DisneySide day! I verified that fact after being asked to host a #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate. I received a box of goodies to share with friends. Disney just asked that I use the contents of the box (paper products, Kinetic Sand, Mega Blok toys, Kellogg’s fruit snacks,Clif Kid Zbar bars, and fun Disney goodies) to show my #DisneySide. I wasn’t compensated, other than the box, and my opinions on all things, including Disney, are my own.
Instead of creating a big to-do (I did that earlier this year with almost 100 people at a #DisneySide event), I decided to bring a little Disney magic into events I was already planning. I ended up having two #DisneyKids parties and everyone got to feel some Disney magic…because that’s what it is all about.
#DisneyKids Party #1
It was the night before the Fall Festival party at my boys preschool and I was slated to put together the party for my four year old’s class. But never fear because Jake and the Neverland Pirates came to my rescue!
I used the Disney tableware to set a festive, fun table for the kids, Clif Jr. bars that satisfied the restrictions of a nut-free school and a rousing game of #DisneyKids BINGO (with candy corn and Skittles as place makers). Pizza, Gogo Squeez apple sauce, juice, and nut-free cinnamon rolls rounded out the menu. In addition to the #DisneyKids BINGO, the kids all had Disney Jr. emblems to color to jazz up their straws (and we only had two spilled cups…out of 8).
#DisneyKids Party #2
A few friends of mine invited me over for a pizza playdate on a night when the kids didn’t have school the next day. I offered to bring some #DisneyKids magic and add to the fun! I figured Disney can turn any day into something special so why not an average preschool playdate?
Jake and the Neverland Pirates made another appearance! My hosts were so happy I was able to come and bring some Disney pixie dust with me. What I didn’t know is that this average, everyday playdate was actually a birthday party…FOR ME!
My sweet friends gathered together with all our kids (9 of them between the ages of 2-7) on the Monday night before my birthday to wish me a happy 30-something. I brought the Disney magic, and was blessed by it myself. Yay for good friends!
