The Best Disney Princess Party Ideas on the Internet!!!

Tweet to @mummykindoff

Olivia’s third birthday is fast approaching, and following our super successful Moana party last year, I wanted to throw another amazing Disney-themed party for her this year!

However, this year, it’s not just the one film she’s into. She’s into literally ANY princess movie. She loves Belle, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, Cinderella and Merida most of all.

I’m also trying to be a lot more conscious of the plastic waste we are producing as a family – so my party-planning tips and ideas this year are also as environmentally sustainable as possible!

So, here is my round up of the best eco-friendly, Disney Princess party ideas I’ve found across the internet!!!

1. Disney Princess Bunting

This is perfect for our party! Olivia doesn’t have one favourite princess this year, so bunting that suits every princess is ideal! Plus, we can make these ourselves using our extensive coloured card and glitter resources and have lots of fun making them.

Our version: do you know which dress belongs to which princess?

2. Princess Purse Party Favours

Amazing ideas for party favours and all made with a hot glue gun – no sewing required?! I’m inspired to go on and make Beast, Olaf, Flounder and Flynn Rider ones too! But maybe we’ll see how the princess ones go first of all!

3. Princess Themed Fruity Treats

These are perfect healthy but fun treats for any princess party! Add in Snow White’s Poison Apples, and you have yourself a tasty princess fruit salad ready to go! These ideas are fab as they will take minimal preparation time, too.

4. Tableware

You will probably need tableware for your party food, and definitely some dinglehoppers!

This is a simple yet brilliant idea in keeping with the Disney theme for the party, and can be made even better by using disposable cutlery made from bamboo, which can be easily composted post-party! I found a pack of 100 on Amazon for £3.46, so not only will they last you for this party but you will have plenty spare for next time around, too.

5. Pin the nose on Flynn Rider!

This is a brilliant idea for a party game, and better than your typical ‘pin the tiara on the princess’! Another great alternative is to ‘pin the kiss on the frog’ if you have a little one that loves Tiana!

6. Fairytale Land Signposts!

Use up some of your old cardboard from shoeboxes (or the endless amounts of packaging that the birthday presents will no doubt arrive in!) to make fairytale land signposts! You can include places from any of the classic Disney films – Pride Rock, The Enchanted Forest, ‘Little Town’, The Wall of China, Agraba etc. etc…

7. Princess Wardrobe Swap

As you can see, little Olivia has quite the collection of princess dresses!

This was so much fun at Olivia’s party! As she has virtually every princess dress that exists, her party consisted of a bit of a wardrobe swap and change for all of the little ones to swap around. It meant QUITE a few wardrobe changes throughout a 2 hour period, but they had loads of fun sharing the dressing up outfits with each other!

8. Disney Bounding

Get the adults involved with Disney bounding! Like the pictures show above, rather than dressing up properly, Disney bounding is when you theme your outfit like the characters instead! This is great fun to get older kids and grown ups into the dressing up too.

9. Make Your Own Crowns

This is a great idea as an activity for the kids to get stuck into at the party, and something extra to put in their party bags! Even better, the crowns are made out of paper and so easily recyclable!

10. Princess Castle

Carboard Princess Castle | Crafting in the Rain

Unfortunately I didn’t have the time to try to create this amazing masterpiece! Nevertheless, this is an incredible idea that creates endless party fun for the children. Simple to make and sure to impress your little ones!

11. Photo Booth

Make lasting memories for your children with Disney themed photo-props to make some amazing photos. DIY them yourselves out of card and paper straws to save money and the environment!

12. THE CAAAAAAKE!!!

Last but not least, the CAKE!!!!

Okay so this isn’t a Pinterest post, but I’m always bewitched by these cake videos. These are simply perfect, and can be made on a smaller cupcake scale (with smaller dolls of course) so that your little one can have a variety of princesses at their party!

Child-Friendly Cleaning Advice and Tips for Eco-Friendly Parents

Cleaning the house is one of those things that just makes you want to pull your hair out!

I know first hand as a mother who works full time and always has about a million and one things to do in the short time that I actually spend at home of an evening!

One thing that has really helped me is getting Olivia involved, even with only tidying up her toys, it allows me to do a daily run around with the hoover and just get a bit done!

Chrissy has put together some more tips to help busy parents with their cleaning schedules, and, not only that, but also tips on how to make your cleaning eco-friendly! I know I for one am particularly terrible at needing cleaning products that probably are quite harmful (honestly, if it smells like lemon, it’s probably in my kitchen somewhere!), so I am especially glad to read these tips for a clean and safe home!

While they might make your home smell like a fresh meadow, cleaning products have actually been shown to be as bad for your lungs as smoking 20 cigarettes a day. Not only are these types of products incredibly dangerous for the health of your family, but they can also be harmful to the environment as they contain dangerous chemicals that spray out into the local air. While this all might sound a little overwhelming, there are actually really easy and cheap ways to give your home a deep clean that won’t cause harm to your family or the rest of your household. 

Keep it Simple

As a parent, especially to a newborn baby or even a toddler, you might fall prey to the age-old desire of wanting to sterilise your entire home to keep them safe. While this is a normal feeling, you’ll actually want to remember one thing: keep it simple. Just as nutritionists recommend eating food with the most simple ingredients possible, experts recommend the same for cleaning products. The same study that revealed just how dangerous cleaning products are also noted that microfibre cloths and water are usually sufficient enough to do the trick. 

DIY All-Natural Cleaning Products

If you need a little more help than mere hot water is providing you with, try lemons. Lemon juice, water, and a little vinegar mixed together are actually enough to lift grease, dissolve any dirt and grime on appliances and even disinfect the surfaces of your home. Vinegar can also help clean certain floors, leather sofas, and even wine glasses. To create an all-purpose cleaner that’s safe on the environment but also smells great and won’t affect your allergies, you’ll want to combine equal parts water and vinegar and add about 20 drops of your favourite essential oil. Shake, spray and enjoy the aroma while also enjoying keeping your air fresh and clean.

    

Pinterest has some amazing DIY cleaning products that are all natural and homemade (and, of course, much better for the environment)! Some of our favourites are these…

Make Cleaning Fun

You’ll be able to reduce the amount of time and products spent cleaning your home if you can clean periodically throughout the week. Waiting until enough dirt, dust, and grime have built up so that it becomes noticeable will require you to use more product to get it off your floors, walls, and appliances. To avoid this, try to make cleaning fun. Set aside about ten to fifteen minutes a day to turn up the music inside your house, take off your shoes, and let the kids run crazy. The catch here is that they can run around, dance and sing at the top of their lungs during this time period, but only if they’re cleaning. If you have especially competitive children, this works great as a game, too. Challenge them to see who can clean the most every day and watch how they take to cleaning as if it’s actually something fun.

A Clean Home Makes a Happy Mum

By making a few simple changes and ensuring you’re always practicing child-safe cleaning, you’ll find that your home is cleaner and your family is healthier. This will result in a very happy mum that can rest assured knowing she’s taking care of her home and family in the best way possible.
