The other day I hosted a #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate! My 3.5 year old and 19 month old were thrilled that we were chosen by Walt Disney World Resort and MomSelect as one of the hosts. Because of this, we received free products in order to host the Disney Kids Preschool Playdate! The opinions expressed here are my own. Check it out, and let your little ones have big fun ahead of them as you get ideas of how to introduce them to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort!
In our package we received all of our paper products and decorations, party favors for our guests, a Sofia the First suitcase that we kept for our next Disney trip, themed activities/games, crafts, and a fun book from Banfield Pet Hospital we used as a giveaway!
- Mickey cupcakes (I used two mini Oreos as the ears)
- Watermelon, blueberries, and grapes (I used Mickey cookie cutters from Disney World to create a glove, star, and Mickey shaped head out of watermelon)
- Doc McStuffins fruit snacks (found at Target)
- Mickey trailmix (a mix we made of mini pretzels, vanilla yogurt covered raisins, m&m’s- we used the brown, yellow and red ones only, plus chocolate chips). And thanks to GLAD, we were able to distribute the Mickey Trail Mix we made into individual Frozen themed baggies.
- Nesquik chocolate milk (or water) to drink
Our friends arrived in some of their favorite Disney gear. We then began the playdate with the puppet craft. Children selected their Disney Junior character, colored it, cut out the accessories, drew a face, and made their paper bag puppets!
We then played Kiliminjaro Safari like at Animal Kingdom. The children had to find all of the miniature safari animlas I had scattered around the first floor. What they found, they kept! It was a super fun safari adventure.
Next, we played “Pin the Smile on Mickey”. The children thought it was hilarious to see where Mickey’s smile landed when they opened their eyes. Our one guest who was closest to where the smile belongs won the Banfield Pet Hospital book “My Very, Very Smelly Breath”. This book elicited a ton of laughs as the scratch-and-sniff story talks about caring for their furry friends’ teeth. So cute!
Our final activity was a Walt Disney World Resort Bingo game. We used cereal as the markers and after each child won, they received a lollipop. We played until all of the children won. It was a fun way to wind down the playdate.
- Disney Junior backpack
- Reversible Sofia the First and Jake and the Neverland Pirates hat
- The Lion Guard poster
- The Lion Guard tattoos
- Walt Disney World Resort luggage tag
When all was said and done, the children were here for 2 hours, had plenty of time for our organized activities, downtime to play with the toys in our house, time for snacking and, of course, the moms got to talk and catch up too. These activities would work well at a birthday party, preschool, and certainly a playdate! It was an awesome way to make little dreams come true in a big way, just like an unforgettable trip to Walt Disney World Resort!
