With the Blu-Ray/Combo Pack Diamond Edition release of Disney’s The Jungle Book coming out next Tuesday (2/11), I thought it’d be nice to celebrate with a Jungle Book inspired family dinner.

I wanted something healthy yet delicious that would please the whole family so I headed out to Walmart to get some inspiration for my dish. And of course as soon as I walked in I found myself in the produce department.

Fresh fruit was the perfect place to start planning our meal. So I decided we’d make some fruit skewers ala Baloo in The Jungle Book. Remember the scene when he turns his finger nail into a fruit skewer? Yeah, that one. [Read more…]

Explore Under The Sea with Ariel and The Little Mermaid Party Ideas

The best part about Disney movies is the bonding time I get when watching them with my kids. With the upcoming release of The Little Mermaid Collector’s Edition BluRay/DVD on October 1st, I thought I’d treat my daughter to an impromptu Little Mermaid viewing party with her friends after naptime as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®.

We don’t yet own the DVD but I was able to dust off a VHS tape that my husband brought over from his parents house. And since my daughter had never seen the movie before we figured we should get some toys so she can play along as the movie plays.

While she played a bit with her new The Little Mermaid Story Gift Set I picked up from Walmart I set up the rest of the party around her. You can see more from my adventures at Walmart shopping for this awesome toy here in my The Little Mermaid G+ Album.

Minnie Mouse Summer Party 1

It’s no secret that I love to host a good party. So when the middle of summer came around I knew we had to have a celebration with our friends and make the most of the final weeks of fun in the sun. Hosting a Minnie Mouse summer party seemed like the perfect way to do just that.

Good thing there’s a great selection of Hallmark Disney-branded party goods and an extensive selection of Disney cakes available at our local Walmart. Planning this party was a breeze since all of the things I needed to make it fabulous were easily accessible.

We sent out our invitations to our playgroup and headed to Walmart to pick up the essentials for our party. We called ahead the day before to make sure they could create a cake perfect for our summery theme and once we had a pick up time we were on our way! Check out our Minnie Mouse Summer Party G+ album to see how our shop went. [Read more…]

Minnie Mouse Fun with Glidden Disney Paint #DisneyPaintMom

Minnie Mouse Fun with Glidden Disney Paint - final

With my daughter and son sharing a room in our small home it’s hard to find a balance between the girly, princess world my daughter is living in and the bug-filled, dino crazy world my son loves. I thought I found a great balance when I transformed their room into a woodsy Forrest Friends theme but it wasn’t enough for my daughter.

Luckily Glidden had reached out to ask if I could head to Walmart and try out the new Glidden Disney Paint line. I happily accepted as our family loves Disney and was excited to find something that would work with our existing design but be girly enough for my daughter.

Who knew that a little paint, some sparkle, and Minnie decals would change my daughter’s side of the room into the perfect Minnie Mouse playhouse.

Simple Ideas for a Magical Disney Princess Halloween Party

There’s something magical about Halloweentime. The change of the seasons, the feel of the air, and the decorations and dressing up.

This year my kids have caught on to the magic! They eagerly awaited the day we chose our costumes for this year (my son will be going as a duck and my daughter a ladybug, both homemade) but didn’t want to leave it at that.

So I decided to create a celebration separate from our Halloween party next week to allow the kids a chance to dress up and have some fun!
