This time in our lives is unprecedented. Schools are closed for weeks (and in some cities until the end of the school year) and news headlines certainly sound scary to adults and most likely even scarier to kids. That's why it is good to talk to kids about what is going on in the world with age appropriate language. If you have a preschooler who wants to know why they aren't going to school or a toddler who is begging to go to the library for story time (even if week after week she kicked and screamed the whole way there) you can use their favorite Disney Junior characters to help explain what it means when someone is sick and why we are actively trying to avoid getting sick.
Frozen fever is still very real in our house. We have daily sing alongs to "Let it Go" and "Into the Unknown", I've practically perfected "ohhhh" if I do say so myself. We weren't able to see Frozen 2 but we watched it after it was released on Blu-ray and all I can say is WOW! So fun to see how the animation of these characters; Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven, has evolved since Frozen, Frozen Fever and even Olaf's Frozen Adventure. The songs are beautiful and heartfelt and unlike the first installment, Frozen 2 really pulls on the heartstrings, my husband laughed at me when it was over because he saw that I was crying during a particularly emotional scene. No spoilers here don't worry. To keep the celebration of Frozen going I'm sharing three activities you can do with your family!
PJ Masks airs in the US on Disney Junior. It is also available on Disney's streaming service, Disney+ yet you won't find the PJ wearing heroes at Walt Disney World or Disneyland. This is not for lack of Disney Junior representation, Doc Mcstuffins, Fancy Nancy and Vampirina can all be found in both Florida and California so where are the PJ Masks heroes? You have to be very strategically located. These heroes don't take a lot of days off and their 2020 schedule is pretty light (thus far).
Disney's Frozen 2 is available on Digital starting TODAY and is being released on Blu-ray February 25th. Like Olaf said, "winter's a good time to stay in a cuddle" so grab your kids, your friends, your neighbors and get ready to have the perfect Frozen 2 movie night.
Confession: I have not seen Frozen 2. I know, I know, bad Disney mom, bad Disney princess fanatic and just bad Disney fan all around. With two under the age of three, getting to the movies is in a word, TOUGH. We can't even finish a movie at home by the "running time" listed on the back of the cover after the kids go to bed. This is not to suggest in any way that I haven't been excited about Frozen 2 because I have been and I've been waiting to hear when Frozen 2 would be available on Blu-ray and I am happy to share Frozen 2 arrives home digitally on February 11th and on Blu-ray February 25th!
I grew up going to Disney. We went almost every other year and once I hit adulthood my trips tapered off (much to my chagrin). So I love consuming all things Disney via social media, watching movies and TV shows, collectors items, and purchasing gifts for (myself) my kids. I kept seeing social ads for something called Walt Life. An unofficial subscription box services that delivers Disney magic right to your door.
"and at last I see the light".. Recently my second born daughter turned one. I cannot believe it. Where did her first year go? There were times in the beginning when it felt like a slow crawl of days dragging on and up-all-nights but the year really did speed by in retrospect. Now as a mother to 2 under the age of 3, I have gained experience in a lot of areas, one of them being party planning.
If you have a toddler, chances are you've watched a few Disney Junior shows. Okay you've probably seen every episode of most of them by now and that's cool. I'm right there with you. I'll be honest, I enjoy watching shows like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Fancy Nancy, Vampirina and Puppy Dog Pals with my girls. If you're searching for gift ideas for a Disney Junior fan in your life, I've got you covered.
