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!
With the Wizarding World of Harry Potter opening at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 7, there is no greater time to be a Potter fan. We cannot wait to experience for ourselves Hogwarts castle, Hogsmeade, and the many treats we love so much about the Harry Potter universe. So until that day, we have some amazing magical Harry Potter inspired recipes you can make at home!
I really enjoy the month of February. First of all, it is short. Only 28 days! It is full of hearts, cupids, and candy! Yum. And, it is one month closer to Spring. Hallelujah! I also love that we get to celebrate random acts of kindness. There are few things that bring more happiness in life than service. This month’s Family Night lesson and activity are centered around service. I put together a fun printable to get your family in the spirit of serving–Secret Service style!
This Family Night Lesson is to help your family members realize their own personal beauty and worth in this world. We are like the snowflakes; we are all unique. There is nobody in the world just like you. Embrace it! And, let your beauty shine.
This is the only year that the Diamond Celebration and the holidays will happen simultaneously. Since it’s a special year, I thought it would be fun to take a popular holiday tradition and put a Disney spin on it. I’m talking about doing your Elf on the Shelf Disney style. It would be a great way to countdown to your holiday Disneyland vacation, or even announce the gift of a future Disneyland vacation to your family!
I love that that Holiday Season begins with a focus on gratitude. The month of November is an ideal time to make a list of all the things you are grateful for. This festive Thanksgiving Family Night idea was created to help each member of your family understand the importance of “stuffing their lives” with gratitude for their many blessings.
It is so much fun to share a Disney related craft each month, but it seems like lately the universe is buzzing with just one thing… Star Wars! With the new movie coming out right before Christmas and Star Wars Season of the Force coming to Disneyland in just a few weeks, I knew I had to make something that celebrated the two.
Family Night is a family activity that can be held once a week. Set aside one night when your family can all be together. Teach your children important values and how to be better family members, people, citizens, friends, and neighbors. The dedicated time together is the most important thing.
Just like the Disneyland Resort got a dazzling transformation for the Diamond Celebration, the classic Cinderella got a pretty incredible makeover! And with Halloween right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to pretend I’m a Fairy Godmother and transform our classic Cinderella play dress into the modern version with beautiful butterfly accents. Luckily, you won’t need a magic wand to for this Cinderella dress makeover. All you need is an hour of time and a few craft supplies. Can you say Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo?
