We just got back from Walt Disney World, and I thought I would share how ideal Disney’s Hollywood Studios is for preschoolers and toddlers. I have to be honest– historically, I would have said that of the 4 parks in Walt Disney World, Hollywood Studios is my least favorite. It’s always felt more like the action and adventure side of Disney, and less about the magic and wonder. Between the Tower of Terror, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and the emphasis on Star Wars, it’s just seemed like Hollywood Studios was a park that is geared towards the tweens and older. However, after this last trip to Walt Disney World with my 4-year-old Peanut and 2-year-old Monkey, I can honestly say that after the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is the best park for preschoolers! In case you were planning your own trip, here is how to make most of Disney’s Hollywood Studios for preschoolers (or toddlers!)

My Monkey loves Transformers. Well, not all the Rescue BotsTransformers, but he’s wild about , which are perfect for little hands. Even the Peanut enjoys these Rescue Bots. Well, we’ve got a lot of them, and one day the Monkey decided that he wanted to store them in this large plastic Animal Cracker Container. And I’m willing to do anything that will encourage a 4- and 2-year-old to organize and pick up. When he started putting them all into this container, I decided to make it a bit more in style for his cool Rescue Bots by using an image that I downloaded from the internet and uploading it into Cricut Design Space to create the Monkey’s very own Upcycled Transformer Logo Container.
The Monkey loves Goldfish crackers, particularly when he gets home from preschool and needs a little quiet time after a day of playing and learning. He asks to watch one of “My Shows, not grown-up shows!” and requests Goldfish crackers and a cup of milk. He also likes to be independent. That’s very important for him. We keep most of his straws, cups and dishes at a level that he can reach because it’s very important that he does it “all by myself.” I made with a clear storage jar and some spare vinyl this quick and easy DIY Goldfish Snacks Jar, so that the Monkey can get his own yummy Goldfish Crackers.
It’s the middle of basketball season around here. It’s January, and for middle school basketball, we have about 8 more weeks of games. (Then AAU season starts, but that is another kettle of fish entirely.) The Big One plays a lot of basketball between lessons, games, and practice, we are often running from gym to gym. I’ve picked up a fair amount of spirit wear as a sports mom, including several basketball mom shirts, but the reality is that I can always use a few more. I decided to use my Cricut Explore Air to create my very own Basketball Mom shirt. I’m going to share the shirt with you today, along with a quick tutorial to show you how to turn font and images into a single Welded image. By doing this, your designs become even easier to position on fabric, and you don’t have unexpected cut lines.
