My family loves games, so I thought a Disney Game night would be tons of fun. We had everything all scheduled and then we got swine flu, followed by pink eye, followed by colds. I rescheduled our event two times because of sickness and then we decided to just postpone until we all get healthy and then we'll schedule our party. I'm too excited about all the fun ideas I have though, so I'm going to go ahead and share some of those with you today!
Disney has taken a ton of different board games and given them a Disney twist. Not only do they use Disney characters, a lot of them use simplified rules so they are easier for kids. Only problem is that we didn't have any Disney games. My husband and I hit up 3 different Goodwill's on 50% off day and bought 6 games for $6.50. The Rummikub in the photo, was a hand-me-down, so it was free. What a score! We checked the games in the store to make sure they had all the pieces.
Ever since we got the games, we've been having family game nights 2-3 times a week. The kids love them, and I love that we're spending "unplugged" family together.
I've also found some great DIY options for people that want to make their own Disney themed games. Finding Bongamom came up with some awesome Disney themed Taboo cards that you can print up.
A Girl and a Glue Gun made her own Disney Quotes game. It looks like a lot of fun.
You could also try making your own Bingo cards like Spoonful of Sparkles did.
For the adults that are uber-Disney fans, you could print out this Disney Periodic table from Sporcle and see who gets the most correct. This is originally an online quiz, but you can get a list of the answers if you start the quiz, and then after a little bit of time has passed you can press "Give Up", right below the timer.
I know they sell a Disney version of Hedbanz, but if you don't want to buy a whole new game you can convert your regular version of Hedbanz to Disney. I'm planning to make up some Disney Character cards and print them up on the photo paper that came in the HP Photo Card pack. I'll share the cards with you when I get them made up.
This post is getting long, so I'll be showing you my food ideas and what we did with the shirts in another post! What's your favorite Disney game? Tell me about it in the comments.
