Post family Disney-theme night ideas HERE!
 
We are collecting ideas for family fun nights with a Disney theme. Use them to countdown to your trip or just keep the magic going at home! Themes can be based on anything Disney-oriented (movies, rides, attractions, etc.) and we would like to have a coordinating meal and craft or activity. Bring any and all ideas! **Please refer to post numbers under topics to find ideas! Have fun and get creative!** Updated through p. 75

Activities - construction paper and straw leis, crepe paper hula skirts (family
fun magazine from a while back)

Peter Pan
 
Movie - Peter Pan

Menu - Pirate ship Pizzas (make french bread pizzas, use a skewer as a mast, have the kids draw some pirate flags to attach to top of mast)
Fruit on a Sword (put cut fruit onto skewers, make an easy dip: 8oz container of fat free cool whip and mix with a 6oz container of fruit yogurt and refrigerate for at least one hour)
Fairy cakes or cookies (small cupcakes or cookies with vanilla frosting and sprinkled with coarse colored sugar)

Activities - Fold newspaper into pirate hats
Play "Follow the Leader" like the Lost boys!
Treasure hunt! Cut out a map shape out of a brown paper grocery bag, wet it slightly and crumple. After a few minutes, flatten out to dry. This gives it the old worn look. When completely dry, draw your treasure map. Don't forget the treasure at the x that marks the spot! Maybe a bag of gold chocolate pirate coins from the local party store!

We always celebrate Walt's birthday on December 5th.

We eat Chili with Beans (his favourtie meal according to Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs) and Lemon Chiffon Pie (his fav. dessert according to the same source).

We find directions for drawing Mickey (and others) online and try our hands at it.

We pull out the model train and set it up around the Christmas tree (he loved trains) and set up our Disney themed smaller tree in the dining room.

I know this is not really the same thing as the other posts--but it is a fun evening.

NHdisneylover 02-01-2008 09:23 PM

More along hte lines of what others are posting:

Movie: Mary Poppins
Menu: a tea party on the china plates: scones, fruit, tea sandwhiches, etc.
Activity: make and fly paper kites

Movie: The Little Mermaid
Menu: entree: "Ursala dogs" cut lengthwise "legs" up 2/3 of hotdogs before boiling or pita boats (fill pita pocket halves with tuns or chicken salad. Prop upright and add a skewer "mast" and cheese slice "sail"
sides: pasta salad made with shell pasta and fruit salad with "starfish" (star fruit) and gold fish crackers. For dessert try blue jello in clear cups with gummy fish suspende in it
Activity: collect a bunch of everyday items and have everyone come up with what Scuttle would think they were for.

Thank you:flower3:

It's funny, we have 3 out of 4 of us with December birthdays (plus four more in the extended family) so you'd think the last thing we'd want to do is celebrate another, but we love kicking off the family birthday season with a celebration for Walt.

The kids are older now (9 and 11) and this year we have also had "Le Cellier NIghts" a couple of tiems a month since fall. Le Cellier is a favourite eatery of ours at the world (it is the steakhouse in Canada at EPCOT). We love their cheese soup and pretzel bread. So, every so often on a cold weekend the kids will help make homemade pretzels (easy but very tiem consuming) and we'll also make cheese soup. The baking takes nearly all afternoon. The new settle down with our pretzels and soup and pop Off Kilter into the CD player. It's not as good as being there--but ti is nice:upsidedow
