We had a lot of fun Mickey Mondays before our last trip, but this Peter Pan themed night was one of the best!
I decided to set up our dining room to look like the Darling Children’s nursery! I turned the table into a bed, and made a little window seat on our nook. I scrounged around to find older toys and books as decoration. It was so much fun to decorate!
- Above the cabinet, I put a lantern with a candle inside like Tink, and cut her silhouette out of paper and had it on the outside of the lantern. It looked like her shadow.
- I made the table look like it’s a bed, teddy bear on the bed
- Blocks with Wendy and her brother’s names spelled out
- Black frames with shadows of Peter, Wendy, John & Michael in the frames
- Framed Peter Pan Puzzle hanging
- stacked old children’s books, also made a Big Ben out of old wooden blocks
- Displayed old toys
- Made the window nook into a window seat & drew a London scene on the dry erase board
- Listening to the corresponding Disney music is always a must on Mickey Mondays
- My daughter dressed in a nightgown to be Wendy
Tic Tock Clock: I hid a ticking timer in the room and the kids were supposed to find it before it went off.
• Indian statues– (all get given a feather headband to wear); do Indian dancing around the fake fire while the drum beat goes. Freeze when the drum stops.
Tick Tock Croc:
I used lids of cans that were perfectly safe and smooth and drew clock faces on them with a sharpie. I used a Dragon from a bean bag game I had on hand, and called him a crock. I laid him on his back on the floor with his mouth wide and let the kids stand on a chair and attempt to drop the clocks into his open mouth.
In honor of Tink, we made glow jars by cutting open a glow stick and pouring it into an old syrup jar. Then we put glitter in, too. This didn’t turn out as awesome as I expected, but my kids liked them anyway and used them as night lights as they headed to bed.
I kept with the theme at bedtime, and read my little man a cool Peter Pan book as his bedtime story.
