I have a couple of places I get the stand ups from. The first place I go to find them is the Disney site under characters and stars. Find the movie you are doing and sometimes they have the activities and stuff on that page directly. Here's a link http://disney.go.com/characters/#/characters/

If you don't see what you are looking for, go to the Disney Junior site and look under coloring pages, they have the stand ups there for alot of the movies, some you may have to color (I have my DD do those ones).

Another place is the Family Fun site, they always have great ideas and printouts for the latest movies!
Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, I am still having no luck. Specifically, where did you get the Herc stand ups? The Alice stand ups I have seen on here look EXACTLY like the Herc ones you used. I am guessing they are from the same place. I tried the characters and stars, found Alice in Wonderland...nothing printable came up. Am I doing something wrong???

Well it looks like we won't be back to Disney until 2014 so I plan to start doing movie nights once a month until we go. We did a few before our trip this year and my kids enjoyed them. So it looks like this weekend we will start making list of movies kids want to do. I love all of the ideas listed here.

I posted these to my PTR but figured I’d share here as well. This weekend we did Lilo & Stitch.









This time I didn't surprise the kids all the way (I decorated in the morning while they were still home so they knew we were going to watch Lilo & Stitch that night but they didn't find out until the morning of). After I picked them up from camp we came home and while I was shredding the pork lion for the BBQ Tyra and Devin made the fruit skewers.



I guess I was taking too long b/c they then decided to eat a fruit skewer each




Our feast





movie time

Last night we planned a Jake & the Neverland Pirates theme night – our traveling companions were able to join us.

While I put our pizzas – um pirate ships – in the oven the kids made their masts/sails.




I printed out activity books from the Disney jr. website – the kids loved making the crafts. Here’s Tyra and her looking glass.


The kids playing Pirate Memory (notice their hats – also printed from online)




We watched the cartoon while playing the game so it was a little distracting


On the menu –

Our snacks - Cannon Balls (coco puffs), Cod Fish (goldfish) & Gold Pirate’s Teeth (pineapple tidbits)


Tyler baked a cake while I was at work and I put on the icing and paper cut outs when I got home.


And our Pirate Boats

Activities:

earn badges (like a scout type thing)
make a scrapbook of things you've done/want to do

Make sure everyone occassionally shouts out "squirrel!". (LOL my whole family keeps doing this).

I'm sure I'll think of some more but I might need to watch it again for more ideas. Can't wait to hear what others come up with.
Love it! Squirrel!

We leave in a month so we had a theme meal and a movie last night. My youngest is nearly 13 so there weren't really any crafts.... Just some trivia questions. We watched the country bears..... Forgot how funny that car wash scene was. Our menu: pear gargonzola salad (prebagged stuff), cornbread recipe from hoop de doo (really good, will make again with less salt tho), BBQ baked beans, BBQ country style ribs, corn on the cob, grilled onions, Mac n cheese (artist point recipe, with a blue cheese topping...yum), and apple pie upside down cake a la mode for desert. Served up with ice tea for the kids and beer for the adults. We were stuffed, and so were our neighbors

What a great movie night idea!!!! We had that movie when it was on VHS...haven't seen it in quite a few years. It is rather cheesy, but I agree that the carwash scene is hilarious! My hubby plays guitar so perhaps a guitar sing-along would be a great activity to do...

This weekend we are doing our Alice in Wonderland movie night...

Okay, after a crazy June and July we are back on the Disney Movie Nights!! Tonight's was Lion King! We had "zebra" steak, Rafiki's Trees (broccoli), Timon and Pumba's Bug Jello (jello w/ gummie worms), Asante sana sliced bananas (plantains), Prairie grass (coleslaw), squashed banana's with Jungle animals (banana pudding with animal crackers), and zazu juice (blue kool aid). We also listened to African music from Pandora.






The jello turned out interesting. I didn't try it (i'm not a fan of gummie, but my husband and son liked it, my daughter did not)




For activities we did a safari. I printed out pictures of animals and we taped them around the house and the kids had to search for them. We also did Lion King bingo, and we made african masks. While we cleaned the table the kids did an activity page I found online and a coloring page p.s. My son drew hidden mickeys on his coloring page for my husband to find...so proud









We will be doing our next Disney Movie Night in two weeks. My son drew the movie out of the bag and it will be...Princess and the Frog!! I need to learn how to make beignets!

So, I am sort of coming up with my own decorating ideas for Snow White... My Christmas Nativity has a water well with a bucket. It is ceramic. I think I will make stand-ups of the characters to put on the table. with Snow White and her Prince standing by the "wishing well." I can then get various silk flowers to scatter around as well. I already have a beautiful forest green tablecloth to put down. I think this all might just work...

oopsiDAISY, love how your Alice in Wonderland night came out, sorry I didn't get back to you about the cutouts earlier. I just looked and couldn't find them where they used to be on the Disney site. I do like the ones you made yourslef though
