We are already split... A 16 and 19 year old boy is hard. Thoughts about asking the Mom?

Was thinking...what about a seek and find or Sudoku magazine/book? Would give them something to do if they were just hanging out. I think they make small ones for like 99 cents. Sometimes Walmart has some cheap card games. That would be fun to play with family or friends.

On one of our cruises, which had over 50 FE families, we received at least 3 decks of cards, plus a few sets of dice. We've never used any of them. Just FYI.

Trying to find an eco-friendly gift. I was really thinking of doing the Johnson and Johnson first aide kits, but I am kinda'.... We are going on Earth Day and that's like my favorite holiday. I was thinking of making flower/seed bombs.

Sorry, you aren't allowed to take seeds on or off the ship. I wouldn't chance this.

Even if it is really allowed, if I received one I'd play it save and not take it off the ship.

We are doing a room gift of a 'Minnie' Survival Kit. A variety of things someone might forget... Nail file, highlighter, clothes pins, paper clips, etc.

I agree on the seeds and would not chance it.

How about an origami flower or tree made out of recycled paper? You could add it to your gift. Sure there are examples on the web somewhere.

What about a water bottle or reusable coffee cups? I know people on this board have decorated them with Disney themes (though don't know how that's done!)

I definitely want to do FE again but we will be backpacking-ish around Europe for a week before and after cruise with just a carry on, so like NO luggage space at all! So I will need to find an awesome idea that is TINY and light!! Please point me in the right direction if you have seen something cool!! I had so much fun crafting it all last time so I would like to make something.

I guess in theory I could mail a box ahead to the ship or to our hotel in Barcelona? Has anyone done that?

Thanks!!

Hi,
We took our first Disney cruise in July (NYC to Canada) It was wonderful! I made bottle cap magnets, key chains and necklaces. They were very easy and I think they looked great. Plus side for you is small and easy to pack. I gave key chains to men/boys and necklaces to girls/women plus magnets for the cabin.

I posted a picture of what I made back in July. I guess if you look under my name you can find the post (not sure how to link it here...sorry!)

But I got the idea off this board so if you search bottle cap I think lots will come up.

I got the supplies off Etsy and that is also where I found someone who sells Disney images. Plus, found a woman who did ship specific images as well for the magnets.

Hope this helps and enjoy your trip!

We were cruising on Earth Day too, they always have a special movie premiere. How about reusable/recycled shopping bags? You might even find some with the Disney Earth Day logos.

Try PInterest... Look up fish extenders. There were quite a few cute ideas that fit your theme!
