Over the weekend, we had a great Disney-themed party at our house. It was so much fun! We focused it around the new app Mickey’s Magical Math World app (although can’t wait to get Mickey’s Magical Arts World app, which will be available in the Apple App Store on February 12, 2015.)
Here are ten party ideas that I loved… (click the link for full instructions)
1- Decorate your own cookies.
3- Have fun photo props at the party!
4. Or a GIANT photo prop like this!
5. Make super cute party hats!
6. Have fun snacks (check them out here)
7. Turn your home into a Magical World!
8. Even a juice box can be adorable like this one!
10. Have fun things for the kids to do while waiting for the other kids to arrive!
We sent out invitations to come to our Disney Imagicademy. (I had the information on the back)
I picked this particular image, because the app that we were playing with, In Mickey’s Magical Math World, the children are invited to join Mickey and his pals on a fun-filled Space adventure that explores math concepts within a fully immersive playground of magical experiences.
When everyone arrived, I had the kids start on their first party activity!
So since our theme was Mickey’s Magical Math World, I had them DESIGN a treehouse for their first activity… (This app is awesome, by the way- it is where kids can explore, recognize and identify shapes with Mickey; Play with numbers and patterns within Minnie’s Robot Playground; Ponder early number concepts with Donald; Explore Counting to 10 and early problem solving with Daisy and experiment with shapes, patterns and sorting skills with Goofy.)
While the kids were doing that, I let the parents play around on the Disney Imagicademy Parents App. This is an all-new free app that serves as a parent’s ‘go-to’ resource to connect with the Imagicademy community and gather information that can be used to engage with their child in meaningful ways. It sort of gives you that daily dose of what is possible. It will help you to answer the question… “What can I do today to help my child grow?’”. You will get daily articles and Imagicademy-inspired activities designed to help spark creativity and encourage imaginative learning. Plus, you can see your child’s work and creations because Disney Imagicademy Parents also serves as a portal into children’s Mickey’s Magical Math World and Mickey’s Magical Arts World.
A fun Game:
First I had each child draw with their eyes closed- they had to try to color Mickey’s feet, then hands, etc… with their eyes closed.
Once they started coloring, they could open their eyes to finish. This is a really fun game for little ones! They laugh and laugh!
The kids played on the app & loved it!
Our kids are going to love Mickey’s Magical Arts World – In Mickey’s Magical Arts World, children are invited to join Mickey and his friends in the most imaginative place around, as they explore a fully immersive world of creative arts. Children can create their own characters that can star in animated movies alongside beloved Disney characters like Mickey and Minnie, while they experiment with line, shapes and texture in Mickey’s Drawing Studio; Explore storytelling, improvisation, costume design, character development and role play with Donald; Consider concepts of rhythm, tempo, patterns and melodies with Mickey’s Musical Marching Band; Experiment with symmetry, balance and proportion as they design buildings with Minnie; and play with oodles of virtual arts and crafts with Goofy!
Before they left… no party is complete without a cupcake!
They had little chocolate cookies in the tops of the cupcakes to look like Mickey Mouse ears!
