With 30 days til our Disney trip, we celebrated with a Mickey Monday with a Mission Space theme. We were really hoping that our little 5 year old was going to be tall enough to ride Mission Space this year! My husband even measured him a few times before the trip. He did end up being able to ride, all except one time… in the evening. I guess you really DO shrink during the day!
That brings us to my kids, waiting patiently on the couch, while Daddy put dinner together and Mommy threw some decorations up. This was probably the least effort we put into a Mickey Monday this year, but it was still fun! I just tossed up the solar system, some silver star spirals and some star confetti on the black table. I also filled up a ball pit and covered it with a blue shower curtain to make it look like a rocket. I did create some cool drinks by using glow bracelets sandwiched between 2 cups.
Dinner was a hoagie, shaped like a rocket.
I found some challenges online that mimic astronaut training, and our first challenge in Space Training was • Crew assembling training: putting a puzzle together with gloves on. Next was • Mission Control: Learn to stand on one foot and throw the ring frisbee in a certain direction. J was excited to ring the top of the ball pit “rocket”.
• “Pilot Plank” for one minute. He was just lying on the floor, but he thought he was planking!
After completing a couple more tasks in the Astronaut Mission Training Program, the kids earned their Mission certificates. (sideways pic :p) They also got a pack of glow-in-the-dark stars, which I had been going to stick all over the ceiling in the dining room.
