Planning the Party

  1. The Invitation

    With a little preparation and a few inexpensive "mouseketools," you can easily design and customize your very own Mickey & Minnie Mouse celebration. It all starts with the invitation, setting the tone for the main mouse event. For an idea you can assemble, address and send out with your child, these adorable printable pop-up cards make the perfect preschool project. Pick up some Disney stamps at the post office -- or deliver them to the guests by hand.

  2. Crafts, Activities & Favors

    The best way to amuse children as you wait for everyone to arrive is to set up a simple, easy-to-do activity in which they can work at their own pace and interact with the rest of the group. This Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Printable Playset features all the characters and a backdrop that's simple enough for tots to assemble on their own once a grown-up does the cutting. The playset not only makes the ideal party time "craftivity," but can also double as a personal party time puppet show and take-home favor. Another favor idea is one you can make on your own in advance. These Mickey and Minnie Mouse Ears make the perfect accessory for every mouse in the house.

  3. What to Serve

    For dessert, Mickey's All-Ears Cake can easily be customized as a Minnie-themed confection by coloring the icing pink instead of red. You can also add a bow made of berry-flavored fruit tape or a black licorice stick made pliable enough to tie into a bow with a few seconds in the microwave.
