My daughter wasn't always a Disney fan. I was literally convinced for the longest time that the universe was playing some sort of evil joke on me. Me, a total Disney freak would have the only little girl not into the Disney Princesses. I remember when the movie Frozen came out & hearing all the other moms complain about listening to "Let it Go" for the millionth time and being totally jealous! My daughter walked away from the tv 5 minutes into the movie. Why wasn't my daughter Disney obsessed?!?! Why doesn't she even like Mickey?!?! All kids at least love Mickey, but mine cried when she met him in real life! Totally heartbreaking.
Thankfully, that all changed when Haylie turned 3. She went from being a total Disney hater to being completely Disney obessed! I can now say that Mickey & Sofia grace my tv daily. Looking back I just think the plots were too much for my daughter. Yes, other one and two year olds we're loving every moment of Disney everything, but my daughter just didn't get it. She wasn't ready for stories with real plots & that's totally ok! Kids learn at different rates & Haylie being my one and only I had to figure that one out.
Now that I do have a Disney obsessed kiddo, I can totally embrace the whole Disney mom fabulosness!!! My favorite Princesses might be classics like Cinderella & Aurora, however Haylie is Sofia obsessed. Sofia is Disney and a PRINCESS so I will take it!
Makes me think we all fall in love with princesses that "look like us". Of course I love the blondes, where Haylie loves Sofia who is brunette & blue eyed just like her. Coincidence? I think not since looking back to my childhood, my sister was Belle obsessed and she is a brunette with brown eyes just like Belle ;-)
I'm not sure how your kiddos schools work, but unfortunately where my daughter attends ughhhh!!!!! So many rules about bringing treats to school. No homemade, no nuts & who knows what other obscured dietary restrictions there are!! Knowing that I would probably mess that up, we decided to go the non-food item route for Haylie's class birthday treat. I can't make any dietary mistakes with a non food item. Totally blonde moment proof!
With Sofia being Haylie's current obsession we decided that a Sofia the First theme was a must for her 4th birthday! So we had a photo shoot with my handy dandy camera while Haylie rocked her Sofia dress. We then hit up the Dollar Tree and bought some sandcastle buckets! All kids, boy or girl love sandcastles. Swear the hardest part was crafting up an idea everyone would enjoy and not just the Lil'Princesses of the class.
We printed out Haylie's photos using photo paper, punched a hole in the corner & tied them onto the sandcastle buckets using purple ribbon to add a personal touch.
I think they came out wayyyy more fabulous than I ever imagined!!! A totally perfect class treat & they would make even better party favors for any princess themed party!

What a great idea!! There are so many allergies and food restrictions that going the non food treat route is pretty genius. And those sand castles with the photos are adorable!

Here I thought I had the only child that hated Disney - we literally left our vacation there early because he was so upset about being there. I am glad your daughter ended up loving it - of course what little girl wouldn't with those cute princess dresses!

I don't have kids, but I love your idea of not doing food treats. So many kids these days have allergies/food aversions...better to be totally safe! I think your daughter looks adorable in her dress :)

Haylie looks fabulous! I prefer non-food presents too. It's a little bit more difficult to choose the items boys and girls both like, but at least that way I know that the sweet treats won't go to waste.

Oh how adorable she is! I love the sand castle bucket idea very much!

I am too usually go for non-food items when we give gifts to the class. Every kid loves stickers and tattoos right?!

Wow, these are so awesome. Yes I also feel the only understand some movies when they get a little bigger, my daughter is almost 4 years old and she understands the story behind Doc Mcstuffins so much more now than a year ago,
