Hi everyone, it’s Adelle from Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today! And today, we have a special surprise for you all – It is that time of year already where we need to start thinking about the holidays. I think one of the best surprises for Christmas is a Disneyland vacation! So to help you reveal the big gift to your family, we have three free and easy Disneyland vacation surprise printables to go along with three ideas we came up with.
Amidst the hustle and bustle of work, school, family and church obligations, it can be easy to let things slide. Adelle has some simple ways we can add the Scriptures into each day. I’ve found that when the lazy days of Summer fade and school bells ring I try to recommit myself and my family to our goals. […]
Whether you are a wizard, witch or a muggle, you know what this time of year means – back to school! Hi everyone, it’s Adelle from Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today! Today, we are going to show you the best treat to transition from the summer break into your fall adventures. What better way than with the snack that welcomes all wizards back to school on the Hogwarts Express, Pumpkin Pasties.
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.
Glowing Halloween Costumes are a great way to add a little extra safety to a spooky night! It might sound scary, but now is the perfect time to start booking your Halloween Time Disneyland vacation! So to get you in the spooky mood, we have are showing you our Glowing Halloween Costume tutorial to transform a princess dress. Of course, this would be perfect for your regular Halloween activities, but probably even more amazing worn at Disneyland’s Halloween Time.
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!
One of the most important principles that Jesus taught his disciples was to love. We are not only to love our family and our friends, but to love all of God’s children. Even when they are different than us. Even when they do not act like we think they should. God loves us all so much, so we too must love and forgive each other–without judgement.
You could spend a fortune purchasing Mickey and Minnie Ears for the whole family, or you could make your own for a fraction of the cost. They’re really easy to make, and it’s fun to be able to personalize each set!
In a world that pulls families in so many different directions, it is important to find ways to stay tied together. When children have a solid anchor at home, they are more likely to stay out of trouble and be a positive part of the community. I wanted to think of a family night lesson and activity that would demonstrate this act of “being bound together” in a visual way. I hope you enjoy this lesson and activity and that it can help your kids feel loved, safe, and protected in this crazy busy world that we live in.
Today’s Family Night lesson is about treasure–something that leprechauns know all about! How do we find our own treasure? What type of treasure should we be seeking? Is it a pot of sparkly gold or something even more valuable? Let’s find out what this heavenly treasure hunt is all about!
