In the vein of the road trip baskets I put together for the drive to Rosemary Beach back in July, I’ve been collecting inexpensive Disney themed items for the even longer haul down to Orlando. And, after months worth of gathering said inexpensive items, I finally pulled out all my purchases and assembled the goods. And they are a little over the top. Even for me. And that’s saying a lot. Seriously, these were just supposed to be a couple of activity books to pass the time. Instead they are about a million times more fantastic than what our Easter bunny typically bears (those were so unremarkable that they weren’t even photographed.)
It wouldn’t be a trip in the Jeep without plenty of snacks. I printed out a wrap, “Meeska Mouska Mouse Mix”, for a an upcycled Fritos can from the dollar bin and will fill it with snack mix (pretzels, cheerios, raisins, nuts, craisins and a few m&m’s).
The bonus of the buckets and balloons is that they’ll absolutely be repurposed for the baby’s Mickey Mouse themed birthday party!
Here’s the deets:
- Beach bucket – $5 (bucket – Michael’s – $1; vinyl name and mouse stickers – Grimes Graphics – $4) – will also be used at the pool
- Balloon – Walmart $2.75 – great party decor for the baby’s party
- Sticker activity book – Walmart $4
- Signature book – made by me $3.75 – for character signatures and pictures
- Magnetic write board – Dollar Tree $1
- Chalk board – Dollar Tree $1 – scribble on now, hang in their rooms later
- Mickey’s Road Trip Matching Game – made by me $2
- Crayons – Dollar Tree $1 for three packs
- Coloring and Activity Books – Dollar Tree $1 each
- Water bottles – Grimes Graphics – $5.75 – we’ll carry these in the park each day
- Meeska Mouska Mouse Mix – created with supplies on hand
Bless his heart, I think Honey’s put out that he isn’t getting a bucket. It being his first trip to Disney and all. :-)
