We all know that the 2020-2021 school year could use all the magic in the world! I decided to start by adding some Disney magic to our first day of school flags with Mickey and Minnie Mouse! This is a simple and fun way to add a personal touch and get creative for the famous first day of school photos!

To make these signs you will need a 12 inch 1/4 wooden dowel, ribbon of your choice, a Mickey embellishment, and card stock.

First I purchased a digital copy of the pennants from Whimsical Darlings Co on ETSY. The pack was $10 dollars and included preschool through 6th grade first day of school files. They are made to be printed on 8.5 x 11 cardstock. I highly recommend using cardstock so they are more durable.

Next, I hot glued the flag to the wooden dowel. There is a flap that will easily wrap around it. After that, I took my ribbon in groups of 3 pieces at a time and tied them to the base. I found if I did more than this it becomes bulky and the Mickey embellishment did not sit right.

Lastly, I used my circuit to make the Mickey and Minnie. They are about 3 inches wide and I used glitter black cardstock for some extra magic! I hot glued them over the ribbon knots and the flags were complete!

I love the idea of these first day of school signs. Not only are they a simple way to bring Disney magic to the first day of school but they are so easy to personalize! My kids picked out the color ribbon they wanted and I even added the crown to Minnie for my princess loving daughter!

Hope this Mickey and Minnie adds a bit of magic to the start of your child's 2020-2021 school year!

Let's face it, making Mickey Mouse apart of ANY holiday adds magic to that day! With the parks being closed and the loss of that classic holiday firework show, I was determined to add some Disney magic to our Fourth of July celebrations.

I instantly thought of ice cream because Disney World is so hot this time of year it's hard not to get this cold treat when you are there for the day. I also knew I wanted to make Mickey's ears pop and go beyond the classic plain cookie ears.

First I made the ears with red and royal blue melting chocolate, Oreos, and sprinkles. I knew trying to get a full Oreos to stay on the cone would be hard so I only used one side per ear. I melted the chocolate and dipped the Oreos into the chocolate and then into the sprinkles. I then placed them in the freezer to cool faster ( you will need to do this if making the cone right away.)

After I scooped the ice cream into the cone I pressed the cone into the sprinkles. I find this makes less of a mess and the sprinkles stick the ice cream better!

Then I just pressed the Oreo ears in to have the CUTEST and yummiest patriotic Mickey that ever existed! So here is a SUPER EASY Fourth of July Disney themed dessert that will guarantee to bring a smile to your face! I hope you enjoy and if you want to add more magic to your life follow along @mickeybarmama!

We often look to our favorite Disney characters for inspiration but this Mother's Day a group of Disney moms got together to bring some humor to the challenges of motherhood during the quarantine. Villains, princesses, superheroes, and male characters were brought to life in a never seen way to bring some laughter and relatability to this time.

1. MickeyBarMama as Ariel showing what happens when you can't be where the people are, get to where the fish are, or get away from the kids are...your only option is to lock yourself in the bathroom and let your tail out! Alone time is IMPOSSIBLE when you are in your house every day with EVERYONE and the bathroom is now your escape room!

2. A.magical.life.for.me as Mulan talking juggling the difficulties of homeschooling. We basically are training little warriors, who put up some good fights when it comes to having their parents as teachers!

3. Justasunshinestateofmind as Alice taking even tea parties to Zoom calls! I mean EVERYONE is doing zoom call these days (even 4-year-olds), might as well make a party out of it!

4. Amagicalkingdomcalledhome as Maleficent showing us that even villains are taking advantage of this extra quality time and also turning to drugstore hair dye while the salons are closed!

5. TheStewartTribe as Merida asking for freedom surrounded by staples of the quarantine; toilet paper, piles of laundry, and coffee!!

8. Scots_disney_mum as Pocahontas talking about the daily grind of having sidekicks that ask for snacks every 5 seconds. How do they go to school and survive yet at home they can't go 10 minutes without a snack?

9. Sonsunhine.adventures as Kanga trying her best to channel her inner patience as she juggles homeschooling, work, and household chores!
