Crafts: Make your own Mickey Ears. Purchase some black Headbands and black foam craft paper. Before the party pre-cut the Ear shapes so all you have to do with the little ones is glue on the ears! Hot glue the ears on so the guests can wear them right away. You could even pre-make them and just present them to the guests as they arrive. Have some pink bows for the little Minnie's attending! Make your own Mouskespotter - A mousekespotter helps Mickey find things he needs so when you are done you could play a little game of "Eye Spy" of items around the party area. All you need is paper towel cardboard tubes and things to decorate with such as markers, yarn, crayons, stickers, foamies and glitter. Lay out the decorating materials on the designated craft table and give each child a cardboard tube. Ask the children to create and decorate their own mousekespotter!
Games: I Spot...Play Mickey's favorite game using shapes, numbers and colors. Before the party, make several large, coloured paper shapes or numbers. You could even use the ones you have already created and hung for decoration around the party area! Then, make sure you have a duplicate of each shape you cut. When it's time to play you hold up a shape, a purple flower for instance and say " I spot a purple flower...do you?" The kids will run to the image that matches the one you are holding or identify the shape by remaining seated and using their newly crafted Mouskespotter. You can play this several times, getting slightly more challenging as you go. Musical Chairs - With a twist of course! Instead of chairs use a flat floor space. Use a variety of large shapes of various colours and tape them very securely to the floor in a circle. At game time, have the guests walk around the outside of the circle and when the music stops, they must quickly and carefully sit down on one of the shapes. Each round, remove one of the shapes or place a Disney stuffed toy on the place to let the kids know that seat is already taken! It would be best to have more shape seats than kids at first so they can all play for a bit before being eliminated. Set up for round 2!
