Hello and welcome back to another new post! I hope you all are doing safe and well. My family and I are taking social distancing very seriously to maintain our health as well as the health of our community. However, being stuck at home is, well, boring at times. This is especially true for my son. Therefore, today’s post is about entertaining those kids (or, really, anyone young at heart!). Here are my top Disney activities for keeping kids busy at home!
Disney Inspired Garden
I don’t know about you, but my family and I are inspired by recent events to grow our own food. I usually have a black thumb, but I’m determined to turn it green! Not only is a garden a food source, but it is a great tool to teach kids responsibility. You can easily give your home garden a Disney make-over with these wonderful decorations from Amazon!
Disney Scavenger Hunt
A Disney scavenger hunt is a great way to entertain kids and doesn’t require a lot of prep work. Plus, the hunt can take place inside, outside, or a combination of both! Pick a favorite Disney movie and add things from that movie to a simple list of items to find. Take Tangled, for instance. Your scavenger hunt list can include:
- Hair bursh
- Frying pan
- The sun
- And the list goes on!
Favorite Character Charades
Charades is a fun game no matter how old you are! Plus, you don’t have to invest a lot of time or money into it. If your kids are old enough, you can simply write the names of Disney characters, places, or movies on pieces of paper. If your little ones can’t read, you can easily print off pictures on pieces of paper! Easy peasy for a Disney activity to keep those kids busy while stuck at home. I think this is one of our favorite Disney activities to keep kids busy at home!
Disney Bounding at Home
Dressing up is always fun! You may not be able to get out to the store to purchase Disney costumes, so take some inspiration from what you have. Disney Bounding is a very popular way for adults to create outfits inspired by favorite characters to wear in the Disney Theme Parks (only children are allowed full costumes in the Parks)! Take the Disney Bounding idea and challenge your kids to come up with outfits based on their favorite characters! Or you can make a game of it! Write names (or print pictures) of Disney characters and have them select a random one from a hat. Give them some predetermined time (5 minutes?) to create an outfit inspired by that character. Then everyone else has to try to guess who they are! So much fun!!
Themed Movie Nights (or Days!)
As I said in my previous post, the two hour screen limit per day is totally out of the window. Thus, we’ve turned to Disney+ and our private movie collection to keep ourselves entertained. Why not do a themed movie night (or day)? If you have some Frozen fans, plan to watch Frozen, Frozen 2, or both while eating Anna and Elsa’s favorite snacks. Chocolate, anyone?
Last, but certainly not least, is doing a Disney puzzle. It’s a great way to keep active minds busy to pass the time. There are some great options on Amazon, no matter the age!
I hope these Disney activities help you keep the kids busy while at home!
Stay safe and well… Cheers!!
