I received free products in order to host a #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate. The opinions expressed here are my own.
Last weekend had the pleasure of hosting some friends and family for a Disney Kids Playdate. Our family loves all things Disney so we were excited to have the opportunity to have a magical playdate with some friends.
The fun began with designing our invitations. The HP Invitation and Card Kit that we received in our playdate kit had a bunch of fun Disney design templates and made the process of printing our invites at home super easy. We went chose to include a picture of Sorcerer Mickey that we received in our Photo Pass Plus photos from our trip to Disney World in December. Fantasmic is one of my son’s favorite shows and so Sorcerer Mickey is a favorite.
We had 10 kids over for snacks, games, and a craft. Disney Parks sent us an amazing package of goodies to help us with our playdate. They included so many great things for our party like the Mickey party decorations, a tablecloth, paperware, some game and snack ideas, and some extra goodies like the awesome Nemo Pillow Pet that my 3 year old now sleeps with all the time. It was all packed inside this American Tourister Storm Trooper suitcase that my 6 year old claimed as his own.
I actually saved the decorations from my son’s Mickey Birthday Party when he turned 2 so I pulled out some of those like the door sign, Mickey Ears garland, and extra Mickey ear headbands and added them to the party decorations that we received.
I let the kids play a little until everyone had arrived. Then we washed up and dove into the snacks. I set up the Softsoap handwash that we received at our kitchen sink area so that it was easy to access.
I set up the food on our table inside and had everyone take their food outside to our giant picnic table on our deck.
We had crackers, cheese, salami, veggies, fruit, cupcakes and Pixie Popcorn. Pop Secret sent us some popcorn and we used it in our Pixie Popcorn recipe. It’s super simple to make- Pop the popcorn, drizzle it with melted vanilla candy melt, and add some sprinkles. Pop it into the fridge to firm up for a few minutes and you’re ready to go!
I decided to serve the popcorn in some paper bags that I decorated with these cute vintage Mickey Mouse stickers.
After our snacks we had a few activities. We decorated Sorcerer Mickey hats, hunted for Hidden Mickeys, and played Disney Character Charades.
We also let the kids have fun playing on the playground and chasing the bubbles from our bubble machine.
We sent each kid home with a goody bag. I included a package of HP Social Media Snapshots and a Mickey Ears Crispy Treat (full tutorial here).
Our sons and the other kids had such a good time at their #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate. Thank you so much to Disney Parks and all the other sponsors for this opportunity!
