In this post: Olympics with Robin Hood & Brave. Also a sweet Mickey Mouse Clubhouse ice cream party! Crafts, food, and fun coming your way! This is #5 on our Disney countdown.
Hello dear ones! Welcome to week #5 on our countdown. You can read #4 here:
What a rainy week it’s been especially for an Olympic themed week. If you read my Sunday post then you know we had Family Olympics. I’ve been tying in fun Summer themes with Disney. Olympics went well with Disney’s Brave & Robin Hood. Both feature archery and that happened to be in our competition. We also had a fabulous ice cream party.
We began the week with Robin Hood. Here’s Michael playing with the arrows Chris made. He looks the part with his green hat.
Tuesday Chris was home part of the day. He helped Michael make these hamburger and hot dog portraits.
Here’s Chris’ hamburger picture lol :).
I was up the night before prepping for our Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Ice cream Party.
- The Set Up
Mickey Mouse Centerpiece~ 3 styrofoam balls painted black, a styrofoam cone, sparkly pipe cleaners, and paper.
- Another Mickey Mouse Centerpiece ~ styrofoam balls painted black, a red cup, and a yellow ribbon.
- Mickey and Minnie Silhouettes~ I painted cheap wooden frames red and then I modge-podged paper silhouettes onto them.
- Disney World Silhouette~ I did the same as above but I added Disney stickers and I glued a ribbon on top.
I found a paper Mickey clubhouse on the Disney family site. It came with Disney characters. Michael helped me with it.
- The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse ~ This was actually very simple. I bought cheap colorful plastic cloths from the Dollar Tree and I hung them from the ceiling to make the back drop. I made a paper Mickey symbol and wrote “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” on paper. I taped them both to the cloths. The hanging ice cream cone is actually a pool toy found at the Dollar Tree.
Music ~ I found a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse station on Pandora. I use Pandora for so many of our parties.
Ice cream of course! ;) We didn’t get a chance to make it homemade but we had Neapolitan ice cream. Our topping selection included
- chocolate syrup
- whip cream
- gummy bears
- The guys added coke to make floats, though it was in their bowl ;P
I love it when Chris smiles…sigh.
Michael is dressed as Goofy.
Crafts & Play
- Ice cream Picture~ Michael made this with paper. Later we glued sprinkles to it.
- I read the book Mickey Meets the Giant. We also watched several Mickey cartoons and Mickey Mouse clubhouse. I’m supposed to be Minnie.
- Homemade Play-dough Ice Cream
You can find the recipe on my Disney Pinterest that I’ll put at the end.
First, we made this play-dough out of flour etc… We added food coloring for flavors and peppermint extract to one of them. We also added glitter but you can’t tell.
Michael scooped the “ice cream” into a paper cone.
- Mickey and Minnie Mouse Ears
I love these and the materials were only a few dollars. We bought black head bands at the Dollar Tree (catching the trend lol) and black stiff felt at the craft store. I cut the ears out and glued them on to the head band. The pattern is on my Pinterest link.
Minnie has a bandanna bow sewed on. Think how much we will save at Disney with our OWN Disney ears :).
- Mickey Mouse Club certificate~ also on my Pinterest. I showed Michael what the clubhouse looked like back in the 60’s and in the 90’s….when the mouse-keteers were kids.
- Disney Character word search, Mickey’s fill in the blank tale, and a cutie catcher (with Disney quotes instead of fortunes).
The next day we watched Brave. The Summer writing assignment for this week was “Being brave means…”
I just printed the mom (bear) from Brave onto lined paper.
Our week ended with the Family Olympics. You can see more pictures from it here:
We made our torch out of toilet paper rolls, a paper plate, and tissue paper.
Each family member had a flag to represent them.
Michael got to compete in archery like Merida and Robin.
Well, God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
