Our Disney Junior Party + a DVD Giveaway
A box of party essentials, three Disney Junior DVDs, excitable children and some party food makes for a fun-filled morning and a quiet nap-filled afternoon (thank you!)
Decorating and setting up was half the fun, streamers and poppers, hats and Disney mags thanks to the ever wonderful Mandy (they were a life saver on our trip to Melbourne). Balloons, especially the black balloons I tied together as Mickey Ears were a hit and most of them are still floating around (as balloons seem to) for the baby to play with on his adventures.
With all the cold weather and illness we have been experiencing snuggling down to enjoy some yummy food and watch some DVDs, Not to mention the dancing to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse CD, which never gets old (if you’re under 5), was the perfect thing to life our spirits.
There was noise, laughter and happiness. We forgot our aches, pains and worries. Even if only for a little while. And when you’re a child a little while can light your whole day.
The speciality of the party was Ellie’s requested fruit salad and ice cream topped with tiny chocolate balls. The failure was the ‘Mickey Cakes’ I made. Lets never speak of them again. Ever.
DIY 'Mickey Bread' and don't forget the Popcorn!
With the failure of the food which will never be mentioned, DIY ‘Mickey Bread’ took it’s place and was an instant hit; covering bread with chocolate sprinkles, balls and some fancy-pants silver balls is a great activity (messy, but fun).
After making some yummy popcorn that ‘flies’ (out of the popcorn maker) we sat down to watch some movies.
Here’s a rundown of the DVDs, which you can win below – for my in depth review visit Becky and James Do Reviews;
Manny’s Big Race

Join Manny and his team of trusty talking tools as they try to turn a broken down old car into the fastest four wheels on the road, and win Wood Valley 500 race! But before they can cross the finish line to victory, it will take a lot of teamwork, a “can do” attitude and your help!
Packed with all the coolest bows and bow-ties you could imagine, including a mood bow that magically changes colours and a flutter of beautiful butterfly bows, Minnie’s pulled out all the stops to ensure her boutique has something for everyone. But don’t forget to bring your Mousketools because the Clubhouse gang will still need your help to find the perfect gift for Pete’s Aunt Mabel!
