Big Disney Announcements!

Last weekend, the D23 event was held. If you aren’t sure what that is, it is basically the event of all Disney events! It is where Disney announces all of the big news about upcoming changes to their parks, movies, etc. It’s basically a huge, nerdy dream of mine to attend D23 someday! Because I am just too excited to keep all of these D23 announcements to myself, I wanted to share some of my personal favorite announcements that Disney made!

Simple Printable Service Project for Kids

Tracking Pixel
We have loved Mickey and the Roaster Racers literally since the very first episode aired. That is why I am so excited to have Disney Junior sponsoring this post! My daughter loves that all of her favorite Mickey Mouse characters are on a new show and loves each of their cars. She has actually learned quite a bit about geography as the Roadster Racers travel the world for their races on each episode. I really like the Happy Helpers segments with Minnie and Daisy. They show Minnie and Daisy as they help different people in various situations as they learn new skills along the way. It inspired me to create a little Happy Helpers service project race for kids to participate in!

I love the idea of teaching children to perform acts of service, without any rewards attached to them. If they are treating it like a race based off of one of their favorite shows, it makes it even more enjoyable! I wanted to make each service activity something that could be done by a variety of ages and made it a printable list so you can easily print it and get serving! [Read more…]

Elena of Avalor Glitter Slime Recipe

Tracking Pixel
We are big Disney Junior fans at our house. I think I enjoy watching the shows on there as much as my 5 year old does! That is why we are so honored to have Disney Junior sponsoring this post. We have our favorite shows set to record on our TV so that we can watch them together. Our TV has a busy day of recording on Fridays because of Disney Junior‘s FRiYAY morning schedule this summer on the Disney Channel. There is a new episode that premieres each Friday and we look forward to catching all of our favorite shows that way.

One of our favorite shows to watch together is Elena of Avalor. My daughter loves that the show is full of adventure and she loves Elena’s dresses, while I love that the show teaches great values. I really like that Elena had the opportunity to rule the kingdom on her own, but she chooses to have a council to help her. It teaches that no matter how big of responsibilities you might have, you can always surround yourself with good friends to help support you along the way!

Cars 3 Coloring Pages, Activities, and Recipes

When we were preparing to go to Disneyland two years ago, I realized that my daughter had never seen the Cars movie. Knowing that we would be spending time in Cars Land, I wanted to prepare her so that she would know what she was seeing at Cars Land. I had her watch the Cars movie and she fell in love instantly! She immediately wanted to watch Cars 2 and has been watching those two movies on repeat for the past 2 years. We were more than just a little excited when we learned about Cars 3!

Cars 3 Coloring Pages Activities and Recipes on www.girllovesglam.com

A few weeks ago, I surprised my daughter by taking her to the Cars 3 Road to the Races Tour. I surprised her by giving her one of the brand new Cars 3 LEGO Junior sets. I gave it to her and told her that she needed them to play with on our road trip to this fun event. I am SO sad because I took the cutest pictures of her when I gave her the LEGO goodies and told her, but the pictures were lost somehow. Just imagine pretty much the most animated 5 year old hearing just about the best news she has ever heard, then times that by about 10! She was SO excited!  [Read more…]

Disneyland Paleo Dole Whip Recipe

Finding delicious Paleo approved desserts can be kind of tricky. It takes a lot of trial and error, but I have found some of my most favorite treats can be turned into paleo recipes! One of those treats is the beloved Disneyland Dole Whip. After a lot of different tests, I found the PERFECT combination to create a paleo Dole whip! Your friends or family members who aren’t eating with paleo guidelines will even approve of this tasty treat!

Moana Party Games and Printable Bingo

My daughter’s Moana birthday party luau was such a fun party to plan! It was fun to be able to plan activities that were character themed, but also plan luau activities that would be new to a group of 5 year olds!

DIY Minnie Mouse Knee Patch Pants and Shirt

If you have been a semi-long time reader, you know that we have a thing for Disney. I mean, who doesn’t? Saying you don’t like Disney is like saying you don’t like Santa Claus! Our love of Disney definitely skyrocketed when we became parents. Our little Disney loving princess made quite the impression on our family. In fact, on a phone call with Dave yesterday the point was made that there was no way he would have known that Minnie Mouse’s nieces  were named Millie and Melody prior to being a dad. Gotta love the useless information kids put in our brains sometimes!

Speaking of that Disney loving child, I made her a new little outfit inspired by her favorite Disney diva, Minnie Mouse!

I love creating character inspired clothing because I know I can make it in a way that is modern enough for mom to like, but is character enough for the little to like!

These Minnie Mouse patch pants and shirt were the perfect combination of both! They were insanely easy to create!

Disneyland Character Dining Guide

When we went to Disneyland and California Adventure in November, I wanted it to be an extra special experience for us since it was the first time that my husband and daughter would be at Disneyland. I also wanted to try something that I had never done at Disneyland before, so I decided that character dining might be a great option for us. I did a lot of research before choosing our Disneyland character dining experiences and want to share what we experienced and what I have learned about them.

This quiet book has been highly anticipated at our house and has already been a huge hit! The great thing about most of these busy book activities is that they can easily become pretty gender neutral. Most of them aren’t incredibly obvious that they are themed after a Disney princess, but they make any princess loving little girl a happy one! The part that will make you happy is knowing that there is very minimal sewing! I am SO not one to sew much, so I did the bare minimum. To make your own, you need…

Minnie Mouse Party Favors

I am a part of the Month of Disney series on R and R Workshop. I love that Rachel does this series! I love all things Disney and her series is full of great things that will be perfect for my Disneyland trip happening this year!

After posting about my daughter’s Minnie Mouse birthday party earlier this year, I realized that I didn’t ever post anything about the party favors that I gave out at it. They were super easy to make and a huge hit!
