I am not sure who was more excited for Sleeping Beauty to be rereleased again last week. It’s a life long favorite of mine, and the passion and love for it has passed down to my kids. There’s just something about the classic Disney Princess movies that have a place in my heart. So of course, when the movie came out we had to throw a party!!! But the thing that makes it so awesome is that even William got excited and wanted in on the party action!
We went to Walmart and stocked up on princess loot GALORE! Sleeping Beauty DVD, Party supplies, plates, napkins, tablecloths, party favors and more. Gracie thinks it was so fun that they made plates with princesses on them. I don’t think that anything can make a 3 year old girl any happier! Oh wait, yes there is…..a whole sleu of princess dresses!
We hung all of Gracie’s princess dresses for the backdrop of the food table. I think it was a perfect setting, not to mention gave Gracie and a few others ample opportunity to have a wardrobe change during the party!!
Once all the party guests arrived, we started by letting all of the princesses, princes and kings decorate their own crowns (available in the download below). They were a simple white because I wanted to avoid people fighting over colors! I let them have piles of shaped foam stickers and they went to work. PS, the best part of these stickers is they are small enough that even when they make a HUGE mess, the vacuum will pick them up easily!
For the food, I tried to keep things simple and definitely kid friendly. My littles die over fruits and veggies, so we picked some of their favorites; green grapes, mini carrots and sliced cucumbers. They also had their choice of ham or peanut butter sandwiches that are in the shape of princess castles. I found the perfect Disney sandwich cutters at Walmart, and not only was it perfect for the party, but the kids also love it for their lunches too.
For dessert, we had to have cupcakes…but mini ones for these little 3-6 year olds. I could have made full size ones, but with 20ish kids in tow, I figured smaller was better!
I topped the cupcakes with these princess toppers, which the kids loved playing with after as well. They kept calling them their princess coins.
The activities were definitely the kids favorites. I wanted to keep it kinda low key, so I brought a bunch of free princess coloring pages (grab them here) and the kids absolutely loved it. Who knew that it would keep all of those kids quite and entertained for so long.
We also played the princess version of don’t eat pete (free printable available below). We used colored mini marshmallows for the candy and sugared up the kids before they had to go home to their parents!!
The last activity was mainly for the boys, but everyone got so excited and involved. I collected all shapes and sizes of cardboard boxes and the kids used them to build castles and towers. The kids loved to build them up as high as possible (“like from tangled, Mom”) and then knock it down and let it fall on everyone.
The party was seriously fantastic. We had so much fun with
