Mickey Mouse Treats
It’s time to have a little fun in the kitchen with the kids making these Mickey Mouse Treats! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Disney Junior.
I have been talking about Disney Junior’s FRiYAY summer line up, all summer long, have you had a chance to check it out? This past week we tuned in for the new episodes of Mickey and the Roadster Racers. This actually is one of my favorites, I think because it reminds me of all those Disney Junior mornings with my son watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He was only 1 when I started this blog and now he’s 8! He wasn’t even walking, now he’s going into 3rd grade. I miss those mornings we used to have watching Disney Junior; thankfully I still have some left with my daughter. One of her favorites is good ole’ classic, Mickey Mouse.
I decided to have my daughter join me in the kitchen making Mickey Mouse Treats. I found some Mickey Mouse sprinkles, then dipped the rice marshmallow treats into red candy melts and then coated them with Mickey Mouse sprinkles. They were absolutely delicious, plus super easy for the kids to get involved with. I know my daughter was proud of her creation; she was also ready to eat them too.
On August 11th, Disney Junior FRiYAY line up will feature Mickey & The Roadster Racers. New episodes will air first on Disney Channel, FRiYAY between 6 and 10am. They will feature two new episodes that particular day, which is a great way for us to finish out our summer. We are back to school in the middle of August and this will be my daughter’s first year of elementary school at Pre-K. That will be 8 years that I’ve been home with kids and suddenly I won’t be…it’s going to be quite the transition. I’m sad but also looking forward to getting my days back for work so that my evenings can be solely focused on my family, that is totally worth it for me. In the meantime though, my daughter and I are soaking up our weekly FRiYAY mornings!

I love that with shows like Mickey and The Roadster Racers, my daughter is learning some valuable lessons without even realizing it. This show is focused on showing kids how to do good in their communities and in their families. Each episode is an adventure with a positive outcome where all of the characters work together to help each other out. I think this is something valuable to learn especially for a preschool age child, who is just learning the meaning of sharing and being a good helper. That’s another reason why I love having my daughter in the kitchen to help out alongside me to make a fun treat to go along with the show because she’s learning even more how to be a good helper in our family.
What shows have you tuned in for on Disney Junior’s FRiYAY line up this summer? I’d love to hear what your favorite was?
Be sure to share it with us!
