Little kids are motivated by things they can see, taste, touch, and do. So when it comes to reading scriptures, I thought having a Book of Mormon reading chart would be a good motivator. Get the free printable and Family Night idea on the blog today!
Mirror Mirror on the Wall, who is the fairest of them all? In the classic fairy tale, Snow White was the fairest maiden in the kingdom. But, it wasn’t her milky white skin or ruby red lips that made her the best. It was her kindness and goodness and her pure heart that made her the fairest of them all! If we looked in a magic mirror, what would our reflection say about us? Today’s family night lesson is about “Spiritual Mirrors.”
‘Tis the season for pumpkin everything everywhere – including at the Disneyland Resort. My family recently went to Disneyland during Halloween Time and we got to try the famous, seasonal pumpkin twists. We loved them so much that I created our own copycat Disneyland pumpkin twist recipe when we got home. Since pumpkin season should last through the entire holiday season, I thought this would be a perfect treat to share. When you show up to your holiday parties with this copycat Disneyland pumpkin twist recipe, you’re sure to feel like the fairy godmother.

There are so many negative things going on in the Media about police officers in our country. It makes me sad. The men and women who serve and protect our families are an important part of our communities. I created this Family Night activity and lesson to help us show our local law enforcement officers some appreciation and thanks. It is also gives you, as parents, some talking points to go over with your children about how to respect and support their local community leaders.

love Disney movies. I especially love them when they have a good message. One of the lasting messages from the animated film, Finding Nemo, and more recently with Finding Dory is when you are in a situation, and you don’t know what to do…”just keep swimming!” When you keep on swimming, then eventually you will figure things out.
Today’s Family Night lesson is a fun one because it allows you to do more than just talk to your family about being good, it gives you the opportunity to DO something good in your own neighborhood. I love putting the lesson into action. I hope you do too.
The way we view the world, situations, and our relationships ultimately determines our happiness. It is called perception. Have you ever heard the expression, “She looks at the world through rose colored glasses?” What does that mean? It means that a person looks at the world in a positive or “rosy” way. What if we looked at the world through Jesus, the Son of God’s, eyes? How would we view ourselves? How would we see others? Would it change the way we act and think? I believe it would.
I thought it would be fun to create a Disneyland Vacation Journal to help capture experiences from a vacation in a child’s perspective. I designed a bunch of fun kid-friendly templates with themed writing prompts to help give kids a jumping off place for recording their experience. There are also several blank photo pages so they can glue in photographs, ticket stubs, maps, receipts, etc. These books are easy to make and simple to use! I hope you enjoy them and they keep a magical record of your children’s Disneyland Vacation forever!
