I received free products in order to host the Disney Kids Preschool Playdate. The opinions expressed here are my own.
Once H started preschool his friends were now chosen by him, no longer by me. After a few weeks of preschool he kept speaking of all these new friends, so I though it would be a perfect time to set up a playdate. I wanted to get to know his new friends and their parents, outside of the school setting. Most previous playdates involved snacks and making a mess in the toy room, now that the kids are older I felt the playdates should evolve, to more organized activities and possibly a theme.
Thanks to the help from Walt Disney World Resort and MomSelect, the playdates theme was selected, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! I received a fun Disney theme celebration kit, full of party supplies, party favors, Disney themed activities, yummy snacks and more. The night before our Disney Kids Preschool Playdate H helped make some muffins for his friends and their caregivers. We used a muffin mix box from Trader Joe’s, so all we had to do was add egg, oil and water, perfect for a preschooler to help. Also this silicone muffin pan makes perfectly cooked muffins and it is really easy to extract the muffins from the pan.
The kids first colored Disney Junior activity sheets while they waited for everyone to arrive, the pictures were then hung on the wall as a gallery of decorations throughout the party. The different coloring styles of preschoolers impressed me.
The kids also loved making Disney Junior straw banners, these were helpful through out the playdate so the guests would always know which cup was their own. A few of the kids used scissors for the first time!
Once everyone was here the whole group played Disney Side BINGO, once a child placed 5 markers in a row they called out “BINGO” we had a few false wins at first but they soon got the hang of it. The winner went home with an awesome Mega Blocks Hot Wheels monster truck!
The kids then broke into small groups and played either a Disney attraction memory matching game or “Which Disney Junior character are you?” fortune teller game (cootie catcher as I called it growing up). All the kids got to bring home their fortune teller game, to play on their parents or siblings.
Everyone was now hungry so we all sat down for snacks, everyone had muffins, Disney fruit gummies, granola bars and Crunchmaster Crisp crackers (a tasty, nutritious alternative to regular processed wheat snacks.)
