I remember my very first trip to Disney at 5 years old. My dad asked me a simple question, “Do you want to get to the castle by train or by boat?” I chose the boat. And as we sailed across that open lake on the fairy boat my heart was full of wonder, excitement and anticipation at the new world I was about to step into.
If you’re about to take your little ones (or even your tweens or teens) on an adventure to the most magical place on earth consider doing a little family craft before you leave! Last year my bestie Rhonda came back from one her family’s magical adventures with pictures of her whole crew from potty training to college age wearing these adorable personalized Mickey Mouse ears all themed out according to their personal favorites.
So whether you are about to go hopping from park to park or just need a cute themed head band of a school party, check out Rhonda’s mouse ear headband tutorial.
