Make a Maraca! Use papier mache, but before you blow up balloon, place a few dried beans in it (to be sure kids do not swallow or choke on beans when blowing up - have an adult do this) Attach a toilet paper tube to the bottom of the balloon for handle. Papier mache, let dry, and decorate with paint.

We have done two themes so far! Last week was Peter Pan and we had a lot of fun. Took all the ideas from here and made pirate hats and pirate ship pizza, fruit on a sword..ect..was a blast!

Tonight we did Snow White. We did Shnitzel (sp) and noodles. Apples on a string to bob for, mined for gems in the sandbox and them did apple dumplings (Snow white tells the dwarves in the movie that she can make these!)

Next week we voted for Pinochio! Can't wait!

Thanks for all the ideas!

I love hearing about the themes everyone has used! Keep us updated on Pinocchio night!

Anyone have any other theme ideas for us to work on? Just say Wall-E last night, meal in a drink anyone?

We were talking about a Wall-E theme last night. We were also thinking food you could eat from a cup (though not blended up, ewwww!) And I was thinking I could collect a box of recyclables- empty laundry detergent bottle, toliet paper tubes, Coke cans, etc. and give a time limit and see what can make as a family. Sort-of like Wall-E does in his little house with all his collections. What's the muscial Wall-E is watching throughout the movie? Hello Dolly? That could be worked in somehow, I'm sure. Maybe you could play that game where you take everyday objects and have to find a whole new use for them? Like he does with the hub-cap for the hat.

Ooohh! I like that mistycumby! A found object game! My DS2 talked through the whole movie (he had questions about everything), and he has one volume level: SUPER loud. You ask him to whisper and he's like "OK, MOMMY!" Sigh. Maybe you could do a finger food dinner (chicken nuggets, cheese cubes, cut-up veggies) and serve them all out of cups? Lemon ice in cups for dessert? Does that seem overly lame?

Anyone doing any of the themes lately?

We did Pinochio, but I didn't do it great. We just did Italian food and dessert, made some puppets and watched the movie. The kids were disappointed after all the fun with Peter Pan and Snow White! So, I need to make up for it tomorrow with Finding Nemo.

We are doing fish sticks...(dd4 said we are in the Fish are food, not friends club! ), mac -n cheese with goldfish sprinked on top, decorating the tv room with fish, jellyfish ect. making paper plate dorys. I as thinking of getting a smalle stuffed nemo at disney store and play Find the Nemo! They would like that!

How about going to the pet store and getting a real Nemo fish. They would like that better, I bet.

Just a thought. I know who will end up taking care of it.

Hi everyone, I actually came up with this idea before I found this thread but I am so glad I found it. Lots of great ideas. My DH and I are taking my two DSis on a surprise trip to WDW next May. I wanted to come up with an idea to get my Disney fix and get my 2DSis into the Disney spirit without spilling the beans so I decided that every week, we will do a Disney Movie Night. I will be reporting about them on my PTR every week with lots of pix. Please check it out. Last night was Lady and the Tramp. Next week is Beauty and the Beast. Sending a little magic your way!

Here is my pre-trippie so can check out pictures from last night (and of course to keep up on our crazy plans for vaca. ): http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1884559
