It's no secret that my family loves all things Disney, so when we were chosen to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration again this year, we were thrilled! I immediately started making a list of what we could do to make it one of the most fun Disney parties we have ever had.
We did receive a box of goodies to help us get going. Our theme was supposed to be villains, but we also stuck with the classic Mickey Mouse theme for some of our younger guests to enjoy. We decided not to go overboard on the eats, sticking with simple finger foods that would be easy to grab while playing games. We used a little Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutter to create some fun Mickey cheese shapes for mini ham and cheese sandwiches. We also served up some "Hot Diggity Dogs".
We used the villain place cards we were provided for inspiration too. Using some green sherbert and Sprite, the kids loved sipping on Ursula's Human Potion. It didn't cost them their voice, either!
Kids love snacks, and again, we wanted to keep it simple and as mess free as possible. We used the same Mickey cookie cutters to make some fun Rice Krispies Treats. We were provided a box of Duff Goldman, Tie-Dye, Premium Cake Mix. Sticking with the villains theme, we only used the green and purple dyes to make Ursula's Sea Snack cupcakes. We created Maleficent's staff with chocolate dipped pretzels topped with non perils.
What's a party without fun activities and games? The kids had a blast playing Pin the Smile on Mickey.
They raced to see who could complete the Disney Villain's Puzzle the fastest.
The girls did a little villain inspired nail art.
Games like Disney Bingo, Word Search and Match-Up were a hit among all ages.
Feel free to save a copy of these games for your own Disney Side @Home Celebration!
The winners were provided small door prizes. Pencils and these fun Cinderella buttons were well received.
You don't need to invest a lot of time or money into planning a Disney Side @Home Celebration. Keeping it simple and providing fun Disney themed food and games will have every guest entertained for hours!
