My kids are home, as are many of the kids around the nation, due to the need for social distancing. We were supposed to be in Disneyland for Spring Break…. but it closed (and we cancelled before it closed). So instead, I am doing daily Disney themed activities with my kids.
I asked on my Facebook page if you would like me to share Disney Themed Activities to do with your kids each day, and people immediately said yes or messaged me that they were excited for it. So, I thought, I would collect the ideas here.
I am starting with 5 ideas, but will continue to add more every week so that we can all hopefully have some fun ideas to do with our kids during this time. And yes, I am only doing 5/week because I will be taking weekends off from being fun, creative mom. (HA!)
I also will try to have something educational tied into activities when possible, be it writing, math, or creative thinking.
I am not an educator, but I do want my kids to do more than veg out in front of the television for the forseeable future, so hopefully this list helps a lot of us.
Let’s Make This Fun – Let’s Do A Giveaway!
To spread some love as well, come share pictures of your activities on each daily thread on my Facebook page – This Crazy Adventure Called Life.
Every week I will choose one person who shared their activity to win an Amazon Gift Card. (I would appreciate if you are following my page as well, but this is in no way required.)
So let’s get started!
Daily Disney Themed Activities For Kids At Home
I will be posting these activities every week so that you hopefully have time to gather up any materials you feel you may need. Because we do not know how long stores may be able to continue being open, I will always try to make these activities use items you are likely to have around your house.
Week 1 of Disney Activities for Kids
For those looking to submit your posts, week one starts March 16, 2020. I will only post one of these activities on Facebook every day for submission, but you do not have to do them that day or in that order. You will have the entire week to submit photos under each post.
For younger kids: Draw a picture of your favorite character and write them a letter (with adult help if needed). There are several YouTube videos you can find to teach kids to draw a character.
For older kids: Write an alternate ending or additional scene to your favorite Disney/Pixar/Marvel/Star Wars movie. If you want bonus points, act it out with siblings, or by yourself for the adults in your home.
For younger kids: Draw your favorite Disney ride
For older kids: Using items around the house, LEGO, toys, etc, create your own ride or recreate your favorite ride.
For younger kids: Decorate card board boxes like your favorite Cars characters, then use them to create an at home drive in theater and watch your favorite Cars movie (or any Disney movie)
For younger kids: Use maps of Disney parks (from park maps or printed off the internet) and find your favorite rides.
For slightly older kids: Use the maps to find items on the map. Work on using map keys and finding other information
For older kids: Use a park map in a craft. Maybe re-purposing park maps into placemats, or making coasters.
For younger kids: Do a singalong and dance to your favorite Disney songs.
For older kids: Create a Disney themed playlist to play when cleaning, exercising, or doing activities that would benefit from some Disney music playing in the background.
