Before I get to all of our Disney Trip goodness, I have to post about our super fun Princess Slumber Party.
Scarlett is a Sofia the First super fan, and her favorite episode is The Big Sleepover. She wanted to have a Royal Sleepover of her own. On our way back from Disney, we were stopping in South Carolina to visit Tom’s family. We recruited cousins Aris and Lila to join us for a sleepover at Grandma’s house and they were more than happy to bring all their princess gear for a fun night celebrating beauty and royalty.
Luke doesn’t have any prince clothing, so he wore his Luke Skywalker outfit with a Jedi robe. It looked good with the girls’ pretty dresses.
Aris wore her Snow Queen costume and appointed herself host, dreaming up lots of activities. Scarlett wore her favorite Sleeping Beauty dress and did a lot of twirling. Lila alternated between Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Snow White and Cinderella. Total life of the party!
Early on, we set up an air mattress. Immediately, all the kids (and some adults) started jumping and bouncing on it. To curb this activity and prevent a pop, we gave the kids some ice cream and put on a Sofia the First marathon. It worked for about 15 minutes.
Next, the girls broke out Grandma’s makeup and Aris gave Scarlett a princess makeover. She did a really good job!
Once everyone looked gorgeous, Scarlett wanted to play a game from Sofia’s sleepover, Pin the Tail on the Unicorn.
She had never played a “pin the tail” type game before, but she did really well. By the end of the game, everyone was pretty much getting their tails in the right spot. They celebrated their success with chocolate milk, just like Sofia had in her chocolate milk fountain!
Everyone burned off the sugar with some “ballroom” dancing.
Finally, it was time to actually sleep at the sleepover. Scarlett didn’t want to take of her princess dress, but then realized the Cinderella nightgown she brought looked like Wendy’s from Peter Pan. The she was cool with it.
It only took the kids about 2 hours to fall asleep after that!
The next day, we had to leave. It was sad, but we created some great memories to hold us over until our next visit!
