I received free products in order to host the Disney Kids Preschool Playdate. However, the opinions expressed are my own. Sometimes I think preschool playdates are more about moms getting together than they are about kids playing. Sure, we usually go to the park or some other kid-friendly zone for our meet ups, but I think the parents get just as much from these get togethers as the kids do, maybe even more. For this reason, we try to have a playdate at least a few times a year as a great way for kids, and their parents to connect.
This time, though, it was all about the kids. Instead of just a casual get together that left us freezing at the park, we decided to have a Disney Preschool Princess Playdate with a Sofia the First theme to celebrate some fall birthdays as well as have a good excuse to get together.
Our friends at Walt Disney World Resort and MomSelect sent us this awesome celebration kit filled with all sorts of fun stuff to help us host the playdate, including snacks, paper products, stickers, paper tiaras, and decorations that were fit for a royal playdate. While my kiddos were most excited about the Mega Bloks and Kinetic Sand by Spin Master that they have been begging for all year, I love that they even included games and activities that we could choose to do to add to the princess fun. We made Disney Junior fortune tellers and the kids had fun seeing which Disney character they each got, we played Bingo, and had a fun matching game going until the little ones sabotaged it by crawling through.
No playdate is complete without snacks, so I loved the Crunchmaster crackers, Clif ZBars, and Kellogg’s fruit snacks that made for easy small bites for the kids as well as a huge bowl of mandarin oranges. Of course, we also had to have cupcakes, because any excuse for cupcakes is a good one in my opinion.
But these were even better because they were princess cupcakes. Oh, and did I mention that one of the moms brought a bouncy house? Oh yeah, coolest playdate EVER. After the little ones had left, we pulled out the Kinetic Sand for the kids to play with. Their instructions were to make a castle out of random tools we gave them, and I think they did an awesome job. It ended up crumbling after a little while, but they were very proud of it while it lasted. After seeing how well the kiddos played with the sand and enjoyed squeezing the sand into shapes and molding it with the tools, I am now a huge fan of the stuff. It was easy to clean up, kept them all busy, and I love that it doesn’t dry out. As much as I normally would shy away from sand in the house, I would actually recommend Kinetic Sand to moms seeing as how it didn’t get all over even during our multi-kid playdate.
