Show Your Disney Side

There is this fun-loving adventurous spirit that comes out to play when you’re feeling the Disney magic, and I have had this in spades over the last year! Not only did I have fun at the Disney Planes premiere in L.A., I also had a chance to show my #DisneySide by hosting a celebration featuring all things Disney!

I received an amazing party pack with all sorts of goodies to share, as well as a really cool hostess gift of an American Tourister carry-on suitcase. Check it out:

Our #DisneySide Celebration!

For our celebration I decided to visit my daughter’s preschool class, something that I wish I could do more of. I was on maternity leave and had the opportunity to visit with her class, as well as share some books and games with her classmates, so I took my chance while I could!

One thing that was high on my daughter’s priority list was bringing a treat for her classmates. Of course we decided to do something Disney themed. She wanted something designed with Jake & the Neverland Pirates, however, that is a little above my skill level when it comes to decorating cupcakes so we went with another favorite — Mickey Mouse!

Disney Mickey Cupcakes

My daughter had a ton of fun helping me decorate these, and even made sure to decorate her very own to give to her teachers.

Here are the cupcakes that she set aside just for her teachers. Didn’t she do a great job?!

Decorating cupcakes early in the morning is not typically what is on the agenda and baby girl was a little worried that mom wasn’t just playing with her like usual (she really just wanted to be held and who was I to say no?). 🙂 Luckily we had made the cupcakes the night before so all we had to do was decorate. It might be true that moms really can do it all!  😉

In addition to the cupcakes, I also made some chocolate dipped Mickey Mouse rice krispie treats with the cookie cutters that were provided in the hostess pack. I think they turned out awesome!

This was my first visit to my daughter’s class and I had a great time – and I think the kids did too! I read a story to them and then we had fun acting out our own story, here we were pretending to be dinosaurs!

Everyone had a great time and I’m glad I had the chance to visit my daughter’s classroom at least once. I really wish it was something I could do more of, but my schedule just doesn’t allow for it right now. Hopefully that will change soon!

After the fun was over I gave Mrs. Case (her preschool teacher) several of the HP photo card packs. She is always printing out awesome pictures of the kids in action in her classroom and sharing with all the families, so I thought it would be nice to give her some high quality paper to use!


So tell us…

How do you show your #DisneySide?
