Are you looking for a way to make your vacation extra-magical? Disney does great at sprinkling unexpected pixie dust, but what if you want to create your own? One perfect way I have found is by leaving trinkets out for the family to find when returning to the room for a mid-day break.
Not to worry, I have found some very budget friendly ways to accomplish this, even with my family of five.
- Disney themed wrapped candy bars or candy bags.
- Trinkets from Target‘s Dollar Spot or Dollar Store
- Disney themed printable puzzles and
- Glow Sticks
- Bubbles (if you’re brave!)
- Mickey Oreo Pops
All of these things can cost less than a dollar per person. You can pick up a pack of pens or stickers for $1 at most stores and separate them out reducing the cost even more. I like to type up a little note each day using a unique looking font. The kids enjoy this and it nips the “I don’t wanna go back to the room” complaint in the bud. They’re excited to go back to the room for a rest so they can see what surprise they have for that day. Parental meltdown averted, day saved, magic restored, kids rested — what could be better for less than a buck a day?
Do you leave small gifts for your kids? If you do, what is the coolest thing you’ve found to spread a little pixie dust of your own?
