It is all about Disney in our house! My kids and I are both big fans of Disney, they in particular love Disney Junior and all the shows there, especially Mickey Mouse Club House, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and Sofia the First. I mean, who could not love these shows and how true to self the characters are. Disney is great for that, showing kids to be true to themselves but still be kids and imagine. So when I had the chance to host a #DisneyKids Preschool Party that used Disney Junior to introduce the kids to the magic of Disney World I was so excited!!
There is not a more magical place on earth than Disney World and having the chance to showcase it along with Disney Junior was a blast. We played games, ate good and fun food, had an Easter egg hunt, made puppets of Disney Junior characters, and read a very interesting and very smell new Scratch and Sniff Book from Banfield Pet Hospital (and let me tell you that was an experience). Our games included a tag game based on the Disney parks, a pin the smile on mickey, and our Easter egg/Safari Animal hunt that got the kids outside after some food. We even got some photo booth photo shoots in and printed for guests to take home. If you have not tried this out, check out PocketBooth the app and HP for their photo strip paper.
For our food we tried to make it as kid friendly as possible. We had a fruit and veggie mouse, Sofia shells and cheese (shell shaped macaroni and cheese), hot diggity dogs (cocktail weenies wrapped in crescent rolls) and pink or brown (strawberry or chocolate) milk courtesy of Nesquik. The kids loved the food and all our hot diggity dogs disappeared (I wish I would have made more) and both types of milk was blast, especially because we let the kids make their own (with provided cups and straws that I bought for the occasion.
There was just so much to do that it was practically a guarantee that everyone would have fun! Both the kids and adults had a great time playing and helping each other and just hanging it out. Obviously, it only gets better when there are goodies involved. Besides the Disney and candy themed Easter Eggs everyone got to take home, upon arrival they each got a crown and could either be Jake or Princess Sofia. We had a good mix of both. Then of course there were goodie bags. Disney was so kind as to provide the bags and a few things for inside (Lion Guard tattoos and poster, credit card sleeve, and a Disney World map designed just for little ones) I spiced up the bag with a reusable cup, tiara or eye patch, stickers, colored pencils, and a note pad. It was the perfect ending to the day. I also made chocolate drizzled pretzels (some with Micky and Minnie candies) and mixed it with popcorn for a “sweet treat” bag.
It was an incredible day and all my guests had a magical time. We are so honored to get to share this fun with you and I hope you enjoyed it! Thank you so much to Disney and all our sponsors (HP, I Love To Create, Banfield Pet Hospital, Glad, all, and Nesquik) for making the day amazing.
