When we had only 17 Days til Disney, the kids woke up to the dining room looking like this: I made the picture frames into little houses for the critters. We played the music from the ride as well as you tube ambient music. We also watched you tube videos of the ride. I had looked up and compiled a list of “Stuff about Splash mountain” to share with the kids. My daughter was very tickled to discover that one of her favorite voice actors was featured in the ride!
So, my decor was trying to recreate the Splash Mountain ride, and my husband got friend chicken and made southern sides for a southern meal. The fall napkins were left over from a birthday party.
We had friend chicken, cornbread or biscuits, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, bacon& green beans. Our special drink was apple cider in a mason jar. We had an unusually large amount of sides because we had gotten the chicken from KFC! Dessert was a berry pie!
Mr Bluebird’s on my Shoulder: The kids each had a bird on their shoulder and they had to sing Zip-a-dee-doo-dah while balancing it. If it fell off, they had to start all over.
Fishing: We also went fishing with a magnetic fish game we have, to see how many fish we could catch.
Racing to Run Away: I gave each kiddo a bag and had them run to gather specific clothing and bring it back in their bag.
Splash! Then, we had the kids sit on stools in the bathtub. They were happy to do so as they thought we were planning a treasure hunt for them. ( I felt a little bad later when I found that out!) My husband and I got a bucket of water and several huge sponges and soaked them!!!! They were surprised all right!
