Week In Review

May

We have been busily preparing for a trip to Disney World by studying the various countries at Epcot, learning about Walt Disney, and about how roller coasters work.  We left on May 9th for Disney World and we came home on the 20th.  We had a fantastic time!!  Here is just a tiny peek into some of the educational things we did while we were there.

While we were at Hollywood Studios we visited One Man’s Dream- a museum all about Walt Disney.  Hailey wasn’t too excited about going in at first, but she ended up loving it.  She was stopping and reading everything and was excited when we would see something we had read about before our trip in Who Was Walt Disney?

Part of our day at Animal Kingdom was spent doing the Wilderness Explorer program- very fun and educational.

Bee Crafty Kids- Disney Autograph Books

09
Aug

Welcome back to the Bee Crafty Kids link up that I am co-hosting with To The Moon and Back Look! We’re Learning and Monster’s Ed Homeschooling Academy.

We are preparing for our annual trip to Disney World, and since we go every year we own all of the different autograph books that are sold in Disney World.  We want to have something a little different, so Hailey decided that she wanted to make her own for this trip.

Disney Autograph Books

Disney Autograph Books

Here is what we used to make our books:
small scrapbooks (you can use any size you like, but we picked 6×6)
refill pages for the scrapbooks
scrapbook stickers
cardstock

Disney Autograph Books

I took the cardstock to Kinkos and brought one of the pages from the scrapbook and asked them to cut the cardstock down to the same size and to drill holes in the same spots.  I’m sure I could have done it myself, but it only cost about $5, so it was worth it to me to have them do it.

I decorated the front of Hunter’s book since he isn’t old enough to do it.

Then I put the cardstock in between all of the scrapbook pages, so that every other page will be a spot for a character to sign.  Then when we get home we’ll add pictures with the characters.  The book only came with 10 pages in it, so I added some of the refills for the scrapbook pages so that we will have room for more pictures and autographs.

Disney Autograph Books

Hailey made 2 books- this is her first one.  She figured out how she wanted everything set up and did it all herself.

Hailey’s other book with her favorite princess on the cover.

We did the inside of Hailey’s books the same as Hunter’s.  Every other page is cardstock and I added extra refill pages.  She loves to meet the characters and get autographs, so we needed a lot of pages.

 Just so you can see what the inside looks like- Hailey will have a character sign the cardstock.  When we get home she’ll add a picture of that character in the photo page.

Disney Autograph Books

Jul

We are getting ready for our annual trip to Disney World soon.  This year I decided I wanted to make autograph books for Hailey rather than buying them in Disney World.  The last few years the autograph books have been the same and I didn’t want to get them same thing again, so I figured I’d be really original and make them for her.

I wasn’t really sure where to start so my mom met me at the craft store (AC Moore and Michaels) to help me figure out what to get.  We ended up getting a small 5×7 size photo album/scrapbook.  I also bought colored cardstock and scrapbook stickers to decorate with.

This is the cover of the first book.

Inside there is a variety of pastel colored cardstock and the photo album pages that came with the book.  They are every other page so that she can get an autograph on one page and when we get home we can put that characters picture next to the autograph.

The inside

And since she loves getting autographs so much I made 2 books to make sure we don’t run out of pages.
