Disney Junior Sizzles This Summer!



With the sudden heatwave in Toronto, we've tried to find cool activities for our kids!  We've cooled ourselves down by visiting the splash pad, by dunking in the lake, and by eating icecream.  But it's a nice treat for the kids to watch the Disney Junior channel in the air conditioning inside! 

The month of July is a great month for Disney Junior, including new episodes of your child's favourite shows, and wonderful Saturday Night Movies!

A Perfect Princess & Pirate Summer!
During the months of July and August, your child can watch Jake and the Never Land Pirates followed by Sofia the First, weekdays starting at 6:30pm EST, running all summer long on the Disney Junior channel!  A new episode of each show will air every Monday, so be sure to set your PVR!  Check out DisneyJunior.ca for great princess and pirate summer games and activities that your child will enjoy!
It's Princess Belle All Dressed Up!
It's no secret that my daughter love to dress up!  Ever since she was just 18-months old, she has loved dressing up like a princess.  In the photo above, she is dressed up as Princess Belle (dress shown from the Disney Store).  

Putting together a princess costume is very easy: just take a party dress or fancy nightgown in lieu of a Hallowe'en-type costume, and pair it with costume jewellery like a bobble necklace and bracelet ($1 from the dollar store).  In lieu of the real deal, you can make a beautiful crown out bristol board, construction paper, or cardboard.  Your child can paint it her favourite colour, and add beautiful touches like glitter, sequins, rhinestones or stickers.  Here are instructions for a basic crown, if you're looking for inspiration!    

Saturday Night Movies With Disney Junior Canada!
Check out this great list of movies from Disney Junior Canada, every Saturday night this summer starting at 6:00pm EST!  Watch commercial-free as a family without interruptions, and set your PVR to watch again later!

Winnie the Pooh Premieres Sat July 27th 2013 at 6pm
on Disney Junior Canada!
My family are avid movie watchers, and we love enjoying movies old and new together!  We first get the kids ready for bed, and then we begin the ceremony of choosing the family movie.  The kids take turns picking which title to watch, but when a turn is called into question, we take votes--and majority rules!  My kids love to snack, so cut up carrots and celery are a snack of choice, or sliced fruit like apples or oranges.  In my household, movie night truly is a family affair, and both mom and dad always participate.

What activities have you been up to this summer with your kids or grandkids?  Are you planning on watching Tinker Bell this Saturday on Disney Junior?  Or how about the premiere of Winnie the Pooh on Saturday July 27th?

  3. You've got me all excited for Family Movie Night! We haven't done that in a long time! Can't wait to start up again. We spend a lot of time outdoors, and by the time we get home, we're pooped and hungry. Good call on the air-conditioning :) Definitely looking forward to Tinkerball this Saturday, and Winnie next week! Thanks!
