I received free product to help host my Disney Kids Preschool Playdate, but all opinions are always my own.
When given the chance to throw your Sofia the First loving child a Sofia themed playdate, you jump and do a happy dance and start dreaming up ways to make your party the best ever! Almost immediately, I knew we would be throwing our party to celebrate our first Daisy Girl Scout meeting. My daughter was so excited to finally have her first meeting…until she realized she didn’t already know all of the girls in her troop. She started to retract into her little shell that I so desperately wanted her to stay out of. I told her that we were going to have a party for our first meeting just so that everyone could get to know each other. “What kind of party” was the sulky response I got. When I told her it was going to be Sofia the First and showed her all of the great supplies we had been sent, well that was it! She wasn’t afraid anymore and was so excited to have a Sofia the First party.
With all of the fun things we had to set up to get ready for our new friends to come over, she was too busy to think about the fear anymore!
We set up some fun goody bags for each Daisy with a bracelet, Sofia stickers, a Cliff Kid Zbar Protein, a notepad and a fancy ring! Every princess needs jewelry!
And of course, we made some goodies! I had been thinking of recreating my other daughter’s princess tea party, but as always, my daughter had other ideas! When I asked her what food she wanted at her party, she said cookies and mini hot dogs! Sweet and simple. Thank goodness! I went with her plan instead, but I also threw in some blueberry scones (from a box) for good measure.
This was a Girl Scout event, so I didn’t break out the bubbly, but I couldn’t help but have a brilliant idea when I saw the adorable luggage tags that came in our party box! I have a bunch of luggage tags right now, but you know what I don’t have? Wine charms! The best part is that there is a little slot where you can change the character’s picture featured on the tag. You could put a picture of each of your party guests in it so that they could easily identify their own glass! I am sure I’m not the first person to have this idea, but I will of course take the credit for it. So you’re welcome for that party planning gem.
We turned on our Sofia the First CD and like magic, our sweet little Daisies arrived! Of course, being girls after my own heart, they each grabbed a Sofia plate and went straight for the snacks! They loved these gluten free cheesy Crunchmaster Crackers that came with our party box. I wasn’t sure if they’d take to them as I was honestly a little fearful of the “gluten free” part, but I can’t tell you how quickly that box was gone!
Not only were the crackers good, but the box served as a great toy! I believe it became a Zhu Zhu pet’s house later on that evening.
After the snacks, that was it. We had awesome games planned, but they wanted to just go have fun and get to know each other, so off they went! They grabbed the Kinetic Sand and went to town! It looks like kinda like playdough, but it really is just like sand. They dove into that stuff and made a big old mess. It didn’t stick to clothes and it was pretty simple to clean up, so this mom rates it high on her list of awesome toys!
After a while of free play, my oldest daughter taught the girls how to use their fortune teller game that told them who their Disney character was. Note: I saw these in the box and immediately thought “Disney made cootie catchers!?!?” Any of you remember those from your childhood? Am I dating myself? Sigh. If you do know what I mean, then you can recreate this baby really easily at home! It was really fun until they caught on that under certain colors were certain characters. Suddenly, a lot of Daisies were turning out to have Sofia as their Disney character! Curious, eh?
And like that the party was over. It was a huge success and our Girl Scouts are becoming fast friends! I am pretty sure Sofia played a big role in bringing them together. Thank you to Disney for providing me with the perfect supplies to throw this great Sofia the First Disney Kids Preschool Playdate!
