A few weeks ago I shared that we were chosen to be a #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate host. We got a box of goodies to help us throw a fun Disney playdate party with our friends.

My kids were super excited on the day that the box arrived. Check out our unboxing video below to see ALL the goodies that were included.

To set the scene for our #DisneyKids playdate we hung Disney streamers up under our patio. It was a nice sunny day and I knew the kids would end up playing outside at some point or another. And, I was right - they spent at least half of the time playing outside.

I set out double sided hats for each kid to play pretend with. One side was Jake the Neverland Pirate and the other side was a Sofia the First princess crown.

The kids loved snacking on popcorn that I made. I found the cute Disney popcorn containers at the Dollar Tree.

The Mickey ears cupcakes were a hit. I added mini Oreos to my mini cupcakes so that they looked like Mickey Mouse ears.

For drinks I served some kid favorites -- Nesquik, lemonade and fruit punch. Thinking back I should have made a big pitcher of Nesquik because it was a top choice and I had to keep going back and mixing up refills for kids. Next time I'll mix it before hand and serve it in a pitcher or in individual premade cups.

Disney bingo was super fun and even our youngest guests could join in the fun by searching for pictures instead of words. We used "Nemo" goldfish to be our markers, although some kids preferred to use their popcorn. And I'll be honest, I'm not totally sure that some of the kids didn't eat their markers right off their bingo card as they were playing.

We gave away other Disney games like matching pictures and charades to the top 2 winners.

The game was enjoyed long after the first BINGO was called out and since then my kids have played it several times between themselves (and us).

We also had a craft table set up where kids could create a paper bag puppet of their favorite Disney character. I set out crayons and glitter glue to decorate their coloring pages. Then, they could cut them out and draw their character on a bag and decorate with the accessories. Most kids took these home to finish them because they were enjoying Bingo and just playing together so much!

When our playdate was winding down we handed out maps and Disney Junior goodie bags.

Each goodie bag was stuffed with a Lion Guard poster, bubbles, Lion Guard temporary tattoos and some safari animals figurines.

The kids loved that they each got their own little book bag. Perfect for a road trip to DisneyLand in my opinion!
