10 Games to Entertain Kids Waiting In Line At Disney

| Games, kids

I love trips to Disney they are absolutely the best time and kind of trip to take with kids. Kids will always remember the fun times they had at Disney Land or Disney World. Luckily they probably won’t remember the time spent waiting in line. The crowds and lines can kind of put a damper on an otherwise fun trip. While waiting in line for a few of the rides at Disney World last month I thought why didn’t I plan better for this? I know there will be wait times and I was completely unprepared with ways to entertain my six year old. While spending the time wait I did come up with some fun little games to play in line and around the park. Nothing difficult to do just easy fun for the family and maybe get a few extra laughs. These can come in handy when you are losing energy and waiting in line. read more

DIY Birthday Minnie Ears

| Birthday Party, DIY

Birthday Minnie Mouse Ears

This year I got to spend my birthday at the happiest place on earth! For the occasion I made some easy DIY birthday Minnie ears to wear at the park. These were super simple and cheap to make for our trip. I made them last minute and was ready to celebrate. It was one of the best birthdays with my fiancé and daughter. There are a few easy ways to personalize these ears too with different colors. You don’t need any fancy craft tools or materials to make them too. I used pinks and yellow because these are colors I like but black ears with bright colors would also look adorable. I wanted to find a way to put a birthday hat on Minnie ears and it can really be done with any Minnie ears but I also wanted some paper confetti! If you are celebrating your birthday you have to have birthday Minnie ears! read more

  4. Cover with icing and sprinkles if desired.

Unicorn Balloons

| Balloons, DIY

Doesn’t everyone want to be a unicorn or have a unicorn? Well now you can have one just in balloon form. It is easy to make your own unicorn balloons. They won’t float but you can hang them all over to decorate a party! You could also use them for centerpieces just put them on top of vase.

What you need:

balloons in white, pink or rainbow colors

black sharpie

metallic or bright colorful rainbow tissue paper

  • Blow up balloons.
  • Draw on face as shown above with a black sharpie, I used blue because I couldn’t find black at the moment but black would show up better.
  • Take a party hat cut it in half. Glue the edges of the half together.
  • Punch a hole through the top about an inch down and add ribbon to hang.
  • On the bottom add strips of the metallic tissue paper or colorful tissue paper. You can tape them to the inside or punch a hole and tie them on. When you put the horn on the balloon put the hair slightly to the side of the face.
  • Add tape to the inside of the balloon sticky side facing out spread out around the horn. Attach it to the top of the balloon making sure the tape is sticking to the balloon.
  • Hang balloons from the top of the horns.
