It’s a Lion King Party

We had a great time here at the Happily Blended household celebrating Labor Day with a little Lion King get together! We had another family come over with three kids so that we could have snacks, activity books handed out, craft time and just overall fun together in celebration of The Lion King 3D release to theaters September 16th and on Blu-ray 3D & Blu-ray Hi-Def Combo Pack on October 4th.

Ants on a log with trees & blueberry caterpillars

I am not usually the most creative mother in the world, but this time I decided I was going to take my time and make this Lion King Celebration a hit! I created celery trees, ants on a log and blueberry caterpillars glued together with honey. I also did a bowl of baby carrots with a blueberry honey caterpillar on the side of the bowl, hurry eat up your carrots or the caterpillar will.

Ants on a log are pretty simple, it’s peanut butter in celery with a few raisins on top. We also had “bug” trail mix with various nuts and raisins mixed together. I used the tops of the celery to create trees and they were “glued” to the plate with peanut butter.

We then decided to do the Hakuna Matata harp craft that was sent with the home party kit.  The harp is a really simple craft idea you can do at home with your children:

What You Need:

  • Rubber bands
  • scissors & glue
  • Construction paper & crayons for decorating
  • Shoe box or hard cardboard box similar in size to shoebox

How to Create the Harp:

Take a shoebox or other cardboard box and have your child decorate and cut construction paper to fit around the outside of the box. This is what their harp will be viewed as from others. Then you can wrap rubber bands around the box to create a harp that they can strum along to their favorite songs.

Get together with friends and have your own Hakuna Matata harp party! Enjoy fun times together. More pictures found on Happily Blended’s Facebook Page & a video of my son playing the harp to come soon!


Disclosure: I received a home party kit and compensation to cover costs of the party from PR, however, all opinions and fun certainly are 100% that of my own!

Season Three of Chuggington is COMING! @chuggington

I am so excited that Disney has announced that Disney Junior is on board for another traintastic year with Chuggington.

Ludorum plc, a developer of global preschool children’s IP, announced today that it has licensed the third season of Chuggington(TM), its popular train-based preschool television series, to Disney Channel for its Disney Junior programming block and the new Disney Junior basic cable and satellite channel launching in the U.S. in 2012. As part of the agreement, Ludorum licensed 13 new half-hour episodes to the channel, which has acquired all U.S. television rights to the property. Disney Channel is currently available on basic cable in over 99 million U.S. homes.

I am so excited and can’t wait to hear when the third season of Chuggington will start!

I will keep you posted and let you know when I hear about on the exact premiere date as soon as I get the email notification. In the meantime read more about this contract on Market Watch.

Cheerleading and Soccer Mama

I am officially a soccer mom and a mom of a cheerleader! Who knew they offered cheer-leading at grade four. I am very excited that Ki wanted to do cheer-leading in addition to soccer this year! This is her fifth year playing soccer and when I saw cheer-leading offered to grades 4,5 & 6 I knew this would be right up her drama queen alley!

I was a cheerleader and it was a fun team sport. It helped me overcome my shy character and learn that people can be nice! I had hoped Ki would love cheer-leading and boy did she ever! On her first day of cheer-leading she came down to the soccer field with her Dad to visit the last half hour of soccer practice for Aj and she was beaming! This girl was so happy, her complexion was amazing and I just know this is going to be a great mood booster for her!

So this year, my plate has become more full with soccer three times a week then attempting to get down to cheer-leading on the fourth day, but it’s so worth it to see how these kids enjoy having extra curricular activities!
