One of my favourite memories as a child was going to watch a show on ice and I remember all the costumes, glitz and glam! It was a truly amazing experience.
Disney on Ice has come back to South Africa with its Passport to Adventure and promises to be an amazing array of costumes, favourite characters like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and of course those loveable childhood characters like Ariel the Mermaid and The Lion King. Peter Pan and Wendy will be taking us on a London Tour while Lilo and Stich will show us how things are done in Hawaii. The show promises to be one with an international team of award-winning figure skaters, high-energy choreography and a colorful set that captures all four unique worlds. As Jasmine says in Aladdin “a whole new world”.
Disney on Ice and I have a competition where one lucky person can win 4 tickets to see Disney on Ice! The tickets would be to the opening night of Disney on Ice, next Friday, 21 June at the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg, 7PM show! How amazing is that! To enter, leave a blog post and a comment on the Facebook page, refer a friend and get an extra entry! Competition closes 19 June 2013.
Coloured paper/stock card of your choice according to the amount of containers you wish to decorate (I used 1 piece of pink paper)
Coloured ribbon ( I used polka dots to go with Minnie Mouse’s hair bow and used 1.5m of ribbon for the 3 containers)
Craft glue that when dry is transparent
A piece of paper for when using the glitter
Pretty bead (use with caution if for smaller children)
Clothing line peg
How to do it:
Colour print the Minnie Mouse images. There are 5 on the page and I only needed three so I used www.pixlr.com so crop the images and use what I needed. If like me you don’t have a colour printer, email or put the images onto a flash drive and take it to an internet café or printing shop. It does increase your costs slightly but will look better than in black and white.
Cut out the Minnie Mouse images
Trace the top of your containers lid onto the coloured paper with a pencil
Cut out the shape that you traced and use the normal glue to glue the Mini Mouse images onto the coloured paper, leaving a slight border between the two.
Put the picture onto another piece of paper so that it is easier to catch the glitter when you use it.
Using your craft glue, make slight dots in the places that you would like to put the glitter on the Minnie Mouse picture. I put dots on the circle around Minnie Mouse as well as on her bow.
Sprinkle the glitter over the glue and wait for about 30 seconds for it to dry before shaking the excess glitter off. You can then use the paper to put the excess glitter back into its bottle.
8. Using the craft glue again, make dots on the container lid where you would like the Minnie Mouse circle to be and stick the circle onto it. Leave it to dry thoroughly. You can use the back of the pencil to lightly smooth any bubbles that may be created by the glue.
9. Take the ribbon and tie it quite tightly around the container so that it does not fall off and make a bow at the end.
10. This step is not necessary but does give it a nice sparkle. Please take the child’s age into consideration and do not use any beads that are easy to swallow. Using the craft glue put a glue dot on the centre of the bow and place your bead onto the glue dot. Use the peg to help fasten it to the ribbon. Wait until it is dry before removing the peg
I put play dough into it for a gift but you can use it to put anything in. You can also use the above steps with a different character besides Minnie Mouse.
