Ellie Badge Ice Cream Sandwich (Inspired by Pixar’s Up)

Posted in DIY, and Recipes

You and me… we’re in a club now! It’s a club for people who love Disney and ice cream and Disney-inspired ice cream!!!

In honor of National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, I drew inspiration from the movie, Up and created what I’m calling the Ellie Badge Ice Cream Sandwich! It’s an over-sized grape soda flavored ice cream sandwich held together with two bottle cap shaped sugar cookies, and decorated with royal icing to resemble the “badge” Ellie gives to Carl in the film. It was super fun to make and even more fun to slice up and eat!

Wilderness Explorer Backyard Camp Out

Posted in Parties and Entertaining, and Summer

This post is a throwback to a fun campout we had with the kids last summer! I wasn’t blogging regularly back then, but we had so much fun that I thought it was definitely worth sharing in honor of this week’s Disney Family #DisneyWeekend theme being back yard camp out! We made our campout a Wilderness Explorer theme, because not only do we love the movie Up (and let’s face it, ALL the Pixar movies), but I had the idea of adding a bit of learning to the experience by having the kids participate in different activities to earn Wilderness Explorer “badges” (stickers) just like Russel has in the movie!

DIY “Carl and Ellie” Mailbox

Posted in DIY

So one day I was walking through Michael’s and happened to come across these adorable mini-mailboxes for about $3 and I immediately knew exactly what I wanted to do with one. So I picked it up, brought it home and let it sit on a shelf for about a month (isn’t that the way these things always go?!) But today I woke up feeling crafty and decided that this was the day that I would finally create my Carl and Ellie replica mailbox from the Disney Pixar movie Up. Here’s how I did it. 🙂

  1. First things first, gather your supplies. If you’re someone who crafts often you’ll probably have most of these things in your house already. If not, you can find all of these things and any local craft store or even the art supply section of your local Walmart (with the exception of the mailbox itself, which I mentioned before came from Michael’s craft store).
