Smart Home: 5 Ways to Continue the Cinderella Excitement at Home (#31DBBB)


1. Read!  Enjoy Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters.
This African tale takes a unique twist on the classic. Makes a great bedtime read.
See it on Amazon: Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters Big Book (Mulberry Big Book)

2. Dance! Have a Ball!
Not that your princess needs another reason, but why not dress up Cinderella, turn on some classical music and dance at your own ball!  All the ladies are princesses, and if the boys (daddy is included) want to join in they can graciously be a prince, or pirates or whatever fairytale creature they wish. 

3. Bake and Eat! A Princess Treat – the Fairytale Cookie!
Nothing better than a tiara shaped cookie at the Ball!  Try these fairytale cutters with your basic sugar cookie dough to cut out the perfect fairytale cookies. Decorate the cookies to your liking!

4. Make a Craft!  A Fairy Godmother Wand

The Materials: chopstick or other thin stick, aluminum foil, 2 stars cut out of construction paper, ribbon, glue, glitter and other decorative items.

Wrap foil around chopsticks and glue decorative items on stars

Glue stars together with foiled chopstick in the middle. Cast a spell with the finished wand!

5. Sing a Song! Fairy Godmother Song

    Stopping by from SITS. Thanks for visiting me!

    Love all of these ideas. My big girl (now 10) was so into Cinderella as a little one and now my middle girl (3) is into the same. We'll totally be doing some of this stuff at our house.

      I just LOVE the princess stage, too! It’s so cute to watch them play in the gown, tiara, and heels!
