As many of you know, the Octonauts is a new favorite for children on Disney Junior. My 5 year old is no exception. So when his 6th birthday approached, an Octonauts party was a must. I agreed wholeheartedly, until I began the search for party supplies. Nothing online, in the party store, anywhere. As the show originated in the United Kingdom, all the Octonauts supplies were there. As we search the internet, my husband and I find tons of DIY ideas for Octonauts decoration, food and favors. We even got a little creative and came up with a few of our own.
Here is a breakdown of our Octonauts Birthday Party!
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the bend! Why not take a break from finding the end of the rainbow for some fun and easy St. Patrick’s Day crafts? Last week I shared a ton of festive Paddy’s day ideas featured on Disney’s Spoonful.com. Today I want to show you how easy these crafts are to do and how cute they turned out! These crafts require easily accessible materials, many of which you may already have on hand. Add a little extra luck this St. Patrick’s Day with these simple crafts.
St. Patrick’s Day Craft #1: Try On Leprechaun
Supplies: a mirror, craft foam, glue and printable templates
1. Use your mirror as a base for your leprechaun.
2. Download the templates for the leprechaun at Spoonful.com.
3. Cut out and trace templates onto craft foam.
4. Cut out and glue craft foam onto mirror.
5. Feel like a leprechaun when you look in the mirror!
This craft is super easy! I did it with my toddler and he really enjoyed playing with glue and putting the pieces together! He obviously required more guidance than a school-aged child, but with a little moving around of the pieces, and glue on the mirror, we got the job done and enjoyed seeing a leprechaun when we looked in the mirror!
I don’t know about you, but after getting home from a great Walt Disney World vacation, I like to spend some time admiring my new souvenirs, including my great new Disney Pins. Of course my Disney Pin collection is far too big to fit on one lanyard, so I got to thinking – how can I display all those great pins in one place? I decided to make a shadow box display case for them, and it was so easy that you could do it too!
