Easy Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Sign

This post is sponsored by Disney Parks and Cricut.  I am proud to partner with them and am honored to be using Cricut products and sharing my love of Disney.  My opinions and enjoyment of both is entirely my own.  This post may contain affiliate links, which won’t cost you extra, but helps support this site.

I started planning our Disney Kids Preschool Playdate, as soon as I talked to the Monkey about our “Mickey Party.”  We wanted the party to focus on the little boys play fort that the Mellow Man designed and built last year.  I particularly wanted a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Sign since I knew that it would suit both the party and could be used long term with their play fort.  With a few minutes of designing in my Cricut Design Space, a spare 2″x4″ and some handy goodness from the Mellow Man, I was able to create a darling and easy Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Sign in under an hour.  Plus, it cost me nothing, and looks incredible.  To me, that is a crafting win.  If you’d like to make one for yourself, here’s how to do it.

This easy to make Wooden Mickey Mouse Clubhouse sign is perfect for a party or play fort!

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party: A Preschool Playdate

This party was thrown as a #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate, and was done in partnership with Disney Parks who provided our preschool mouseketeers some party supplies.  However, opinions expressed in this post are entirely my own, as is my love of Disney magic! 

We are a Disney family.  And the little boys love all things related to Disney Junior, so when my 4-year-old Monkey and I got the news from Disney Parks that we were going host a Preschool #DisneyKids Playdate, we were both excited.  The Monkey had many ideas about how things should go, and so many opinions; however, he really wanted a party to show of his play fort, in his own backyard.  Since my two-year-old Peanut loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, we decided that we’d have a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party in our backyard.

Throw a fun Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party for your preschooler with these #DisneyKid tips and tricks. Party was done in partnership with Disney Parks

May the Fourth: 20+ Star Wars Craft Ideas

Happy May the Fourth, otherwise known as Star Wars Day! It is a day of celebrating, decorating and accessorizing to show of one’s love of that beloved Saga.  And for me, finding incredible Star Wars craft ideas is the best best way to celebrate, so I decided to see what I could find to create.  A simple Pinterest search for Star Wars crafts yielded so, so many ideas of things that I couldn’t wait to get started.  I started building up my own Star Wars pinterest board, and have more than 40 craft and DIY projects collected there.  However, I thought I’d show off a few of my favorites here.

May the Fourth is also known as Star Wars Day! Here are over 20 Star Wars Craft Ideas that are a perfect way to celebrate.

Beauty and the Beast Rose Necklace

I’m so excited about sharing this project today because I saw a variant of the Beauty and the Beast Rose necklace on Pinterest, but it was clearly not any easy DIY jewelry project.   However, I daydreamed about ways to make it easier, make it something that I could do, as I’m a crafter, not a professional jeweler.  Then while browsing the beads section at my local Michael’s store lead me to an idea, and sometimes my ideas don’t work.  Luckily this one did, and I was able to come up with a way to make my very own Beauty and the Beast Rose Necklace.  And while the final results aren’t as fancy as those by professional jewelers, I was so pleased by how the final necklace turned out!  This is an easy jewelry craft project to create your very own Beauty and the Beast Rose Necklace that is inspired by the rose in the bell jar from the classic Disney movie!

Moana Felt Flower Headband

I shared last week that we just go back from another trip from Walt Disney World. I do love being a mom of boys, but one of the things that I miss out on with only boys is the love of Disney Princesses. It’s just hard for boys to get quite as into Aurora, Cinderella, Elsa and Belle the way I see little girls doing.  And there are so many amazing Disney Princesses now– like Moana, which is now out on DVD (affiliate link)!   Sometimes, even if I don’t have little princesses at home, I’ve got to enjoy the prince magic, so I decided to create a Moana Felt Flower Headband using my Cricut Explore Air and Cricut Design Space.  I made it look a bit like a tropical plumeria flower, rather than an orchid.  (Interestingly, while it’s the flower I thought of from the movie, I’m not sure it grows in Hawaii.)

Make a Moana Felt Flower Headband using freezer paper and your Cricut cutting machine. You can create a plumeria headband for your favorite Moana fan with a few pieces of scrap felt and this tutorial.
