DIY Disney Cruise Door Decorations + My Favorites I Found on Etsy | #DisneyCruise #DIY

I took my daughters on a Disney Cruise last August. We loved it so much that we immediately booked (while still on board) another Disney Cruise. We leave next week and I am so excited about it! One thing we did not do for our last cruise but decided we could not miss out on it this time is door decorations. My 5 year old loved walking around the ship and pointing out the different door decorations that we found. She enjoyed reading all of the names on them and looking at pictures that were put up. There are tons of options on Etsy and Amazon, but my girls love being crafty (even though their mama really isn’t). So we went ahead and decided to make our door decorations this time.

Easy DIY Fish Extender & Fish Extender Gift Guide | #DisneyCruise Series #DIY

While on board the Disney Dream last August, I learned all about Fish Extender groups. What exactly is a fish extender? Well, outside your room on the ship is a message holder – in most cases it’s shaped like a fish (but can be a starfish or sea horse). This is there for Disney to place important communications to you, such as excursion tickets and notes from the Cruise staff. It is basically a mailbox for your room. A Fish Extender (FE) it is something that you hang off the fish, much like a pocketed organizer. By hanging the Fish Extender off of the fish the Cast Members can still use it for its original purpose.

Sweeten Up Your DIY Valentines With Welch’s Fruit Snacks | #Welchs #ValentinesDay

My girls are super in to crafts. They love to create gifts for family members – especially around the holidays and for birthdays. So when I asked them if they wanted to come up with some fun valentines, they jumped at the chance. Something that they love almost as much as crafting is Welch’s Fruit Snacks. My oldest always takes one to school with her for lunch and my youngest enjoys one at home daily as well. We had an absolute blast designing valentines for our family and friends together – and snacking on Welch’s Fruit Snacks of course!

I am a huge Star Wars fan and am currently counting down the days until Rogue One: A Star Wars Story© TM Lucasfilm LTD is out in theaters. So imagine how thrilled I was to hear that Kleenex brand is partnering with Lucasfilm LTD to launch limited edition boxes featuring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story designs!

Zootopia Holiday Themed Activity Sheets | #Zootopia #Disney #Printables #Holiday

Since the moment I heard about Zootopia, I knew it was a movie that I would be taking my daughters to see. I was lucky enough to get the inside scoop and see some great clips (like the Sloth clip you can check out in the preview below) before others when I attended the D23 Expo and that just solidified my thoughts. When I took my daughters to go see a movie in the theater recently, there was a preview for Zootopia and after seeing that on the big screen, it has been all they will talk about. They cannot wait to go, and I promised them, when it comes out in early March 2016, we will be there. I personally cannot wait to go myself – I just know it will be a hit!
