TALES OF A DISNEY KIDS PRESCHOOL PLAYDATE!

It was the perfect storm.…Bobbi had been begging me to have friends over for a playdate for the longest….and I’ve been putting it off due to my schedule and travels.  And every weekend – I am charged with finding activities to do with my little ones – which will most always end in arts and crafts.  And then, one day…the skies opened up…and behold…an invite drops in my lap (or email)…asking me to host a Disney Kids Preschool Playdate!!!!  It was an answer to a weekend prayer.

But first….the email said I would receive party supplies to host 10 preschoolers…now which 10 would I invite was my biggest issue.  But I left that up to Bobbi and AJ – and they had a fun time planning their guest list.  It was exciting to receive our goods in the mail – and much to our surprise – it came in a Sophia The First American Tourist luggage.  So Dope!  Check out our Disney Preschool Kit Reveal that I shared on snapchat:

Here are a few things I did to make our playdate special:

I made sure my kids were involved in the process and included activities they would want to do. And anything that involved coloring, painting and creating – they are always down for. So our focus point was the arts and crafts station. I used items that we already had at home to help with decorations and storage for the supplies.

I just discovered Michael’s new Disney Arts and Crafts section!! So I supplemented what Disney sent to me to ensure the kids had plenty of activities. I also live for Target’s front bin section. So many Disney goodies for little price!

I also set up different areas around the house since not all kids want to do the same thing at once. So we opened up our backyard that had a trampoline and swing set. We also had a napping station that I wasn’t aware of 🙂

Made sure there was a nice mix of kid friendly and adult friendly food. Not pictured – pizza! Which is always a win for both sides.

Wanted to add a personal touch so I shared photos of our trips to Disney over the last year. Photos of my kids and various characters – along with pics of their friends they went with. We also pulled out all of Bobbi’s princess dresses and created a princess dress up area where each girl can choose a dress to wear for the playdate!
