Hello, dear ones! I hope you had a lovely weekend. This is the second post in my Disney Countdown series. You can see the first here and it has my opinion on Disney spirituality:

Crafty Monday: Disney Countdown~Pinocchio & The Princess and the Frog

Tinker Bell may seem very girly but I believe fairy tales have aspects that appeal to boys too. So in our count down we aren’t segregating boy and girl movies.  Instead I decided to focus on the parts of the movies that would appeal to my son. We will definitely be seeing princesses at Disney since I’m going too. Michael and I have struck a compromise.

I made a Tinker Bell table display using round styrofoam, moss, a Tinker Bell peg doll (made at Christmas time), and various lost things (buttons, pins, marbles etc…). Tinker Bell collects lost things.

I love the Tinker Bell movies. Each one follows a season. So each day we watched a movie and celebrated that season. Michael wanted to make a display too so he put our Terrance fairy on this one. We used glitter for pixie dust. Terrance is a dust keeper. You have to have pixie dust to fly ;).

Here they are together…

Spring with Tinker Bell (Movie: Tinker Bell 2008)

Spring was fun :). We watched the movie then I whipped up a batch of:

Pixie Dust

  • baking soda
  • food coloring
  • glitter

with Magic Water

  • vinegar 😉

You can see up close that it really sparkles.

Then we made MAGIC MUD by sprinkling pixie dust in a mud puddle and spraying Magic water to make it fizzle.

We then scooped the mud to make mud pies and mud paint.

Michael doesn’t like getting muddy so he used a shovel.

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 028

This was his first time making a mud pie. He sprinkled pixie dust on top to make it really colorful.

The colors didn’t really show up for paint but the glitter stayed.

Michael painted a Star Wars fighter jet (or something like that).

I wrote this. It really glitters.

We made a couple of mud cupcakes too.

Cement Garden Stone

We got this kit at Hobby Lobby.

Michael decorated the wet cement with stones.

I wrote his name. You can see it better when it’s dry.

Summer with Tinker Bell (Movie: Tinker Bell & the Great Fairy Rescue)

This was easy because we’re already in the season of Summer.  We made Koolaid Popsicles with a Popsicle mold.

We did some tinkering with Michael’s inventions kit. This time we made a generator that lit up a light bulb. Tinker Bell is a tinker after all ;).Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 054

We put on glow in the dark bracelets and watched fireflies in the back yard. The flash lit it up but if you look closely you can see little lights on the left side.

Our garden is finally growing. We have several tomatoes.

Bubble Wrap Hop Scotch

This was not what I expected. We had to jump hard to pop even one.

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 063

Mainly the wrap stuck to our feet.Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 065

Then we tried it with shoes. Michael is wearing Chris’ flip flops.

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 069

There wasn’t much of a difference but it was still fun to just hop indoors.

Glow in the Dark bowling

Michael enjoyed this the most. Chris and I sat on the couch to bowl lol.  I put glow sticks in jars and we used whatever we could find to knock them over.

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 072

First we used a plastic pumpkin but later a football. The flash lit everything up again. The room was actually really dark.

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 074

Michael made a Summer Reading book.

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 067

On one page he writes the title and the other he draws a picture from the book. He’s also getting rewards when he finishes a book. Rewards depend on the grade level and length of the book.

Fall with Tinker Bell (Movie: Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure)

Fall is my favorite season. It was nice to celebrate it early.  The house was still rather warm even with the air conditioning. So it was a little weird but we had tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for a Fall supper.

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 075

We played a couple of my favorite Autumn games.

Doughnut on a String

Determined to get the doughnut…

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 094

I got Michael a baby pool last week so we can play with it this week for Nemo and The Little Mermaid. It turns out that pools are also good for reading spots, doing puzzles, and playing with Lincoln Logs. Who knew!

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 097

Winter with Tinker Bell (Movie: Tinker Bell: Secret of the Wings)

We were going to make snowflake sugar cookies but didn’t get to it. Instead we had cinnamon rolls with hot chocolate.

I’ve planned writing assignments for each week. This week Michael wrote about his favorite season. It just happens to be Winter. The paper has snowflakes on it. You can also see him sporting his Ring pop which I call the Ring of Truth. He earned it for being honest for several days. He’s working on a sneaking problem.

Peter Pan

So I thought I would catch Michael laughing but every time I took a picture he’d stop. So here’s Chris and Michael watching Peter Pan. Chris is staring at the kitty in his cone of shame (poor Chester- btw he’s doing much better) and Michael looks like he’s asleep.

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 099

Chris helped Michael make a pan flute kazoo out of toilet paper rolls and wax paper. I wanted to make a real bambo0 pan flute but couldn’t find bamboo. Michael had a blast with this cheap instrument.

Peter Pan Tinkerbelle Disney Countdown 104

It was a slow enjoyable week at home. No VBS or anything. But swimming lessons start soon. Chris is able to be home during the day some. with his new school schedule. Yaaa!

Join us next Crafty Monday for The Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo (Lord willing).
