Creating an EDUCATIONAL Disney Princess Easter Basket

Creating the perfect educational Disney Princess Easter basket | Princess Bump | Princess Fry Words | Sparkle Math Facts | The Curriculum CornerJill and I have always felt very lucky to have our boys.  We enjoy the building blocks, outdoor exploring and other creative fun that comes with boys.  When we were each pregnant with number three, we were positive that we would have boys.  When Jill called after her ultrasound to announce that she would be having her own little princess, I was sure I would never be making the same call.  A little over two years later, I was overjoyed to find out that we would also be adding a little girl to our family.  We would have loved a little boy just as much but having girls has given us the opportunity to have a little fun with Disney Princesses and so many other girly themes!  Often on our sites, we focus on our boys because they are school-ages.  Imagine our excitement when we were given the opportunity to create a Disney Princess and a Disney Junior Easter basket by shopping at Walmart.  We might have gone a little overboard but there were so many fun things to choose from, it was hard to narrow down what would make the basket just perfect!

We started in the Easter section of Walmart.  There were plenty of items to choose from and so many themes we knew our kids would love. (We will be headed back to purchase some Marvel and Star Wars items for our boys soon.)  We started with big buckets we knew our girls would LOVE for summer playing – not only were the buckets cute, but they seem very durable.  Addie’s is the princess theme and we think she will adore the little Disney Princess eggs and Disney Princess mirror along with the stickers, bubble bath and so much more!

Of course, as teachers, we always strive to add a little something educational to the Easter baskets we put together.  Once we started building a Disney Princess basket, we began thinking about the printables we could create that would be a great addition to the items we purchased.  We came up with a few ideas that we hope will encourage your little princess to learn as she plays!  We began with our Princess Sparkle Addition and Princess Sparkle Subtraction cards.  You will print and cut and then have your child match the math fact with the answer. (Use your home  laminator to make them more durable!).  We think the little purse we purchased at Walmart makes a perfect holder for the game.

Creating the perfect educational Disney Princess Easter basket | Princess Bump | Princess Fry Words | Sparkle Math Facts | The Curriculum CornerDisney Princess Bump  Our other game is a simple Bump game.  If you haven’t heard of Bump, it is very popular in classrooms across the country.  You will need some sort of markers and three die/number cubes. (Number cubes are different from dice because they have numbers instead of the dots traditional dice have.)  The directions are included with the game.  We think this Disney Princess version turned out to be so cute!  Our final educational addition to our Disney Princess Easter basket is a set of Fry Word cards.  If you aren’t familiar with Fry words, they are common sight words used in classrooms.  We created two sets of Fry Word cards for a total of 200 words.  Princess Fry Words Set 1     Princess Fry Words Set 2   Have your child begin with list one and practice until she has mastered all of the words on the card.  You can add a Disney Princess sticker when she has mastered the list to encourage her to keep working!

Just so you can take a peak, here is Paige’s Disney Junior Easter basket:

We have not yet created any educational materials to coordinate but we have a few ideas in the works that we plan on adding to The Kinder Corner in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, be sure to check out Walmart to create your own Disney Princess or Disney Junior Easter basket.  Will you add an educational twist to your basket?  We’d love to hear about it!  Share your ideas with us in the comments below.
