In February my mom turned 60. My kids wanted to throw her a party and what better way to celebrate than to throw a Disney side party for my mom. She even sported a Mickey Mouse ears hat for her party hat.
We chose to decorate the party using Mickey Decorations. We used Mickey plates, napkins, cups, tablecloth, and hanging swirls. We also added in streamers and a generic Happy Birthday sign.
The party had kids from age 3 up to 80 or so. One thing that I found out while hosting this party was that my mom hadn't had a birthday party since she was 5. She is now 60. So that is a long time to go without having a birthday party. I was glad my kids helped me decide to use the party stuff for her.
We received a huge Mickey Mouse face without its smile on it. So one of the games played was pin the smile on Mickey. The 3 year old decided to make it a frown face at first. My 4 year old wanted to go first and of course had to look so he could get it in the right spot. It was fun watching the kids spin the adults around and have them try to pin the smile on. Teenagers of course tried to get it on each other or on the ceiling. Either way the game was fun and silly for everyone involved.
After bingo we played some Disney Trivia. Some questions stumped even the older adults because some questions were specific to Disney World and nobody in our group had been to that location. While some questions stumped the adults, some questions were easy enough for my kids. Such as the color of Mickey's mouse's shoes. Or the names of the princesses.
Our group consisted of some kids who have never been to Disneyland, Some kids who have, and others who haven't been in a long time. While we may have not been to the Disney parks recently all members of our group love things Disney and enjoyed showing our Disney side.
The kids in the group are already planning on having another Disney party for the next birthday that comes up in our family.
