My third child never has any playdates! It’s so sad, but true! Last kids typically get the short end of the stick. So, when I was offered the chance to host a Disney Kids Preschool Playdate… I jumped at the chance! My little boy could actually have children over that were HIS age? Amazing!! No more trying to keep up with my soon-to-be 9 and 11 year old. BLISS!!
We ran to the Dollar Store and picked up some really fun decorations. I was so happy to see our favorite characters on hand for such an affordable price. Then we got to work and transformed our house into a Disney adventure!
First up, the little ones colored their favorite characters and had some snacks. It gave them a chance to get settled into their new surroundings. I had my older children around to help out with the activities.
I had Pirate hats and Princess crowns available for the kids in case they wanted to dress up. I was so happy to see that all of them decided to play pretend!!
Then it was time for our Arts and Crafts project. We worked on a pirate boat — something that Jake and The Never Land Pirates would use. The kids picked their colors and used stickers and glue to attach everything to their paper plate boat.
I love that the kids used their hands to make their sails!!!
In the end, we had Mickey Mouse cupcakes that I made simply by adding Oreos to the top of Red Velvet cupcakes. I always look for the easy way out. 🙂
They did NOT care that these weren’t homemade. In fact, no one noticed. HA!
In the end, our friend Sophia won a raffle and got to walk away with this American Tourister luggage of Princess Sofia! How fantastic!!
Do you have any playschool playdate ideas that you’d like to share? Would love to hear!!!
