Do you love Disney? I feel ya! There is truly something magical about the World of Disney. My kids (and admittedly me and my husband) are crazy about all things Disney.
While I would love to jump on a plane and spend a week (month, OK year) living in the Magic Kingdom, it’s just not in the budget (yet). There are so many ways to bring Disney into our home and get our kids to experience it without breaking the bank!
MAGIC OF MOVIES
Disney movies are a great option for getting touched by a little bit of Disney without touching your savings! Just like you prep for Disneyworld, I prep when a new Disney movie comes out!
In the weeks before the movie is released, I do activities with the kids to get them excited about what they are going to see.
Since I started doing this, I noticed how much more they understand the story; and a 2 hour movie now lasts weeks on end! Money well spent.
Every moment is a teachable moment! The kids are so excited to see the movie Brave, coming out June 22nd. It’s a great opportunity to introduce the culture of Scotland. We got out the globe and looked for the the country just north of England.
DO THE…SCOTTISCHE DANCE!
I got this fun dance sheet to teach the kids the traditional Scottish dance. And how cute is that little guy! You can download your own copy HERE!
WHEN IN SCOTLAND
We looked up some of the costumes for Brave from HERE. My son wanted a kilt! I used my wool shawl and wrapped it around him. My daughter wore a flower girl dress she had from a wedding and we were ready for some JIGGERY POKERY (Brave Scottish word meaning nonsense)
They had so much fun, and my son even asked to wear his ‘kilt’ again tomorrow!
Off you go lads and lasses! Brave hits theaters June 22nd!
