We Are Going Green!

We are going green…or at least for the month of March! With St. Patrick’s Day coming this month I decided to take full advantage of the “Green theme” to experiment with my children and trying new fruits and vegetables (and for some, giving them a 2nd or 3rd try).

The Plan

With every dinner we are having at least one green food and quick browse of the produce section at the store tells me we got a lot to choose from!

And guess what?…

Going Green for St. Patrick's Day Ideas for Kids


…They did not even complain or throw a fit, at least not yet! They are either getting used to Mom’s crazy ideas or, I am going to go with, they actually like idea.  :-)  My daughter has already discovered that she likes green peppers after years of requesting them to be removed from her pizzas. And now, she is the first one to remind me we need to add green to our dinner plates. Gotta love it!

Showing our #DisneySide Birthday Style

“I received free products in order to host the Disney Side @Home Celebration. The opinions expressed here are my own.”


We have had a lot of fun celebrating and sharing our #DisneySide with our friends this past month. A month ago we had a wonderful surprise. It was a package my oldest watched for daily once he knew it was coming. And boy where they excited for our @Home Celebration Kit to arrive.

#DisneySide Party Arrival


We decided to use our #DisneySide kit to throw a surprise after school party on my son’s birthday. So, I baked some cookies and shaped them with our Mickey Mouse shaped cookie cuter…

Mickey Mouse Cookies #DisneySide


And put up our Disney themed decorations and put together some yummy snacks including some Mickey Mouse shaped cheese I was able to find at the store…

#DisneySide Birthday Party


He did not expect friends to come over on his birthday, so it was fun to have them show up just as we got home from school. And boy, oh boy, was he excited!!!

We played one of his favorite games…Connect Four. Who does not love a Connect Four Tournament.

#DisneySide Game Time


The snacks were enjoyed, of course!

Then we turned on a Disney Music station on Pandora to dance, jump on the trampoline and play #DisneySide Bingo.

We finished the afternoon with our yummy #DisneySide Micky Mouse cookies…

Everyone loves Mickey Mouse #DisneySide Cookies


…and Goofy temporary tattoos!

#DisneySide Goofy Tatoos


Everyone had fun and we had plenty of cookies leftover for the rest of us to enjoy. We also had plenty of additional activities leftover, too. That is right, I planned way more than we ended up having time for. You know what that means? Yup, more fun for another day. I am thinking we have to do something fun with it all for Spring Break. Bring on the fun!

#DisneySide Cookies


And just to add one more fun moment to the night, we decided to show our #DisneySide via our Mickey Mouse Pizza for his Birthday Dinner. Super easy to create by adding 2 additional pepperonis to each pepperoni already on the pizza. You can not go wrong with that!

More important than anything is that my son loved the party and I loved how easy it was to put together with the help of our @Home Celebration Kit! If you want to put your own #DisneySide party together, stop by DisneySide Celebration to get more ideas.
