We are in the midst of summer and that means I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! One of my favorite treats ever since growing up have been Mickey Mouse ice cream bars. I used to get them when the ice cream van would make its way through my neighborhood. Now we get them each time we visit Disneyland as a family. Because I believe in Disney magic at home, I figured out a fun and easy way to make our own Mickey Mouse ice cream bars.
Cinderella’s mother taught her to always, “Have courage and be kind.” Why is kindness such a powerful attribute? Can kindness actually change a person’s fate? Cinderella transformed from a ragged servant girl to a beautiful queen. What type of results can we expect from being kind? This is the topic of today’s Family Night lesson. I can’t wait to share it with my family and I hope you can take time to discuss the magic of kindness with yours.
Hey Everyone, it’s Adelle from Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today. If your summer is anything like mine it is full of road trips! One of my family’s favorite go-to road trip games is “Would you rather?” It can keep my kids entertained, chatting and laughing for miles and miles. I thought it would be fun to make a Disney version of the game for our Disneyland road trip, and sure enough, it was a hit! Since my family had so much fun, I thought I’d share it with you so you can make your own.

Hey Everyone, it’s Adelle from Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today. We love all things Disney, and let’s face it, candied apples are one of the best things about fall. So, we combined two of our greatest loves and have put together four different types of Disney inspired apples.
Some tricks for making your own apples – freeze your apples the night before dipping them in caramel. Then, be sure to refrigerate your apples for as long as possible before dipping in chocolate. Again, we recommend overnight if possible.

Hey Everyone, it’s Adelle from over at PackedwithFun.com, the official blog for Get Away Today, where I get to share fun ways to keep vacation magic alive at home. School has started and depending on where you live, fall may already be in the air. Although I love the change of the seasons, every once in a while I start to feel a little like Olaf and wish to bring back summer!
A few months ago I put together this Olaf beach ball game and printable that is perfect for those days when your kids long for some summer fun. My kids have had so much fun with it, that I wanted to share it with you!
You can play any basketball-type game at your party with the Olaf hoop. We bought a 24 pack of 6-inch beach balls for less than $10 at the party store. We used them as decorations for our Frozen themed party, in the Olaf Ball Game and then gave them to the kids to take home as a party favor! We of course held onto a few beach balls and the Olaf inspired summer fun continues on at our house year round.
