Summer is upon us and we’re busy planning time “unplugged” from the world but we don’t go far without Disney in tow. What do pirates and princesses have in common? Baby Girl of course. Baby Girl loves pirates and princesses, usually together in some sort of arrangement. In fact, just last night she was using an empty paper towel role as a scope instructing me to walk the plank.
Every pirate needs a treasure box. I’ve learned the best treasure, from a 3 y/o’s point of view, is chocolate gold coins. Duh! Grab this cute treasure box printable over at Spoonful.com; I’m sure your little pirate will be carting it around everywhere like mine is.
Most of the summer so far has been cooler than normal but this last couple weeks we’ve had hotter than normal temperatures. After the winter we had and even in the 38 degree celcius humid heat, I am not complaining! Okay, I slightly complained….once. On a hot day princesses must be able to cool down stylishly; we’ll be packing this adorable lace fan for Baby Girl’s minions (AKA sisters) to fan her.
This month Disney Junior will be playing some of your favourite shows and Saturday night movies.
