Disney Ideas For Kids

If your kids love this craft, we’re betting they love all things Disney and would love to do some more fun and engaging activities! We’ve collected some of our favorite ideas that will not only be entertaining, but educational too. Read on below to pick the best ones for your kids.

Disney Books

One of the best ways to support your child’s growth is to read aloud to them on a regular basis. Reading together gives you a chance to bond with your child. It also exposes them to new vocabulary and ideas and helps them develop important listening skills. So if you’re looking for a way to give your child a head start in life, reading aloud is a great place to start.

Try reading some of the popular Disney books:

Disney’s Frozen 2: Everyone loves Frozen and now kids can read this Little Golden Book at home! It’s a top rated Disney book and it doesn’t give away the ending if you haven’t seen the movie.

Disney Pixar’s My First Bedtime Storybook: This book is exactly what it says – fun stories to read the kids for bedtime! Parents will love that they’re short stories and children will love the characters!

Where’s Woody: Now the toys are playing hide and go seek, but is Woody too good to be found? Kids love this short lift-a-flap book!

Disney Crafts For Kids

Crafting is a great activity for young children for so many reasons. First, it helps to develop fine motor skills. Cutting, gluing, and painting all require the use of small muscles in the hands and fingers, which helps children to develop coordination and control.

Second, crafting fosters creativity and self-expression. Children can explore their imaginations and express themselves through crafting. So why not add in some more crafts? Below are some of our favorites:
