1. Decorations: House made out of cardboard boxes with lots of balloons on top, Mikey mouse faces and shapes, fairy wands, princess crowns, posters of Disney movies, stuffed animals and other Disney characters, stand up cutouts of Disney characters for campers to get their pictures taken with, checkered flags and race cars to fit the cars theme, pink and yellow balloons to create pooh and piglet, Mikey mouse streamers and garland,
2. Special Event: Costume contest. We encourage all of the students to have a costume contest and then they have the opportunity to vote on who has the best costume. Students would have to wear a Disney theme costume, and then we could have a parade where they can march around and show off their costumes. We would give each student a piece of paper and they could write the name of the person with the best costume on their paper and put it in a jar and one of the staffers would tally the votes.
3. Guest Speaker: Somebody who has been to Disney recently or previously. We could also pull up the Disney website and show campers about all the fun things there is to do at Disney. If kids or camp staff has been to Disney they could share their experiences about Disney and bring in pictures to show everyone.
4. Crafts: 1. Mr. Potato head paper bag: 1 paper bag per camper, construction paper (black, white, pink, orange, and blue) glue, scissors, pencils. Campers will create hats, arms, shoes, noses, eyes, and mustaches (all of the essential parts for a Mr. Potato Head) Campers will draw their shapes and cut them out and place them on the bag in the appropriate places and they will have a Mr. Potato Head treat bag.
2. Clothes Pin Airplanes (from Planes): One clothespin and one small popsicle stick per camper. Paint, markers, glitter, stickers.
5. 1. Disney Tag (high active) Start out with 2 taggers and give them the title of an evil Disney character (ex, Jafar (Aladin) and Scar (The Lion King)). They will chase after the other campers however if a camper is being chased at any point in time they may kneel down and shot out the name of a Disney character to prevent getting tagged. If they cannot think of a character or do not say a character then they get tagged and become the new tagger. Give taggers a jersey to carry so they are easily distinguished.
2. Toy Story tag (high active) Equipment: 4 gymnastics mats placed around the gym in each corner. 2 people start as taggers in the middle of the gym. They are the Evil Emperor Zurg and are trying to capture all of Andy's toys. The rest of the group will be named one of 4 of Andy's toys (Eg. Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Bullseye). Give each person one of the toy names and then they go to any mat to start the game. The taggers (Zurg) will call out one of the toy names and when they do the toys must run to a different mat and try not to get caught by Zurg in th the process. If they get tagged they also become a Zurg.
3. Pictonary (low-active) Create a list of various Disney characters and place them in a bowl or a hat. Divide the group into 2 or 3 teams and have the groups take turns selecting a character and drawing out for their team to guess.

1. Decorations: We could use cardboard boxes to make/paint an outline of the Disney castle to put by the doors when the kids first walk in. It could be an archway so the children actually can walk through it. We can put stars everywhere and pictures of some of the most popular Disney characters on the walls.

2. Special Event: Kids Klub Sequels to Disney Movies! We can have the kids form in groups and work out skits and costumes to put on a play of how they think a sequel to one of their favorite Disney movies would go. The kids would not be allowed to choose a Disney movie that already has a sequel so this allows for the children to get creative. For example, Lion King would not be able to be picked since it has three movies total, but Frozen could be picked by a group.

3. We can ask some of the students at SU that do the Disney internship to talk about it. We could also have students share their Disney stories and experiences like show and tell. I went to Disney my Senior year in high school so I could talk about it and bring in pictures.

4. Crafts: Disney Paper Mache- We would need to blow up balloons and have newspaper and glue and water and have the kids paper mache the balloons. When the balloon is dried the students can decorate the balloon with tissue paper and markers to make it transform into a Disney character.

Mickey ears- We would need paper plates and have the kids decorate their ears however they would want.

5. Games: Toys in the Daycare- Oh no! Woody and his friends have been assigned to a Daycare room that they no longer want to be in. They have to get home to Andy without being seen by an adult. There would be two "adults" or security guards in the Daycare while the rest of the kids are toys. We would turn the lights off in the gym and have the adults walk around while the rest of the kids are trying to move without being seen. The last toy standing wins.

Escape the Snow Monster- Based off of the movie frozen and the game sharks and minnows there will be two snow monsters and the rest of the kids will be Olafs. The Olafs have to run from one side of the gym to the other without being caught.

Cherades: Counselors will write up different Disney characters and put them in a hat and have kids draw a name out of a hat while their team tries to guess which character they are acting out.

DECORATIONS
Mickey Mouse streamers
Disney castle cutout
Disney character cutouts
Red/black/yellow balloons and streamers
Disney photos props
Disney movie posters

SPECIAL EVENT
KKSE Disney themed karaoke contest! Time to test the kid’s Disney song knowledge with a karaoke contest of only songs sang in Disney Movies! We would split up into individuals, pairs or teams and compete to see who knows the most Disney songs! After the competition, the kids and the campers will have a Mad Hatter tea party to celebrate with tea and snacks for everyone. To round out the special day we would end by watching a Disney movie of course!

GUEST SPEAKER
Instead of having one specific guest speaker we could have the kids be the speakers! Anyone who has been to Disneyland or Disneyworld could bring in souvenirs and pictures from their adventures with Mickey. Also, we could have someone from the university who was part of the Disney internship program come and talk to the kids about their experiences. It would be awesome if we could get someone who played a character at one of the parks to come and talk and maybe perform for the kids!

CRAFTS
Mickey Mouse garlands: yellow/red/black/white construction paper, stapler, white paint, scissors

Paper plate Winnie the Pooh: paper plates, yellow paint, large yellow pom poms, small balck pom poms, large black pom poms, black pipe cleaners

Olaf marshmallow pops: marshmallows, sticks, edible orange/black marker/coloring. Side note: we can eat these at our tea party

GAMES
High active - Magical Carpets: This is played similarly to musical chairs but you can either do it with cushions on the floor or with little squares of material on the floor. Gather the kids round and tell them to run around the cushions whichever way they want while the music is playing then, when it stops they must run to the available place and sit down - have enough cushions for every child but one. The child who doesn't find a place in time can then be in charge of the music for the next round, repeat this until you have a winner.

Low active - Genie Says: A new take on the classic game Simon Says - one person gives the children commands starting with 'Genie says' which they will do. These can be things like dance around, pretend to charm a snake, eat some fruit, pretend to rub a lamp, then for some commands leave off the 'Genie says' and any of the kids who still do the command will be out, or will have to do a fun forfeit.

Low active - Pin the Tail on the Lion: Everyone knows how this is played. Cut out or buy a large picture or poster of a lion. Then make a tail out of paper, card or material and get the kids to see how close they can pin it to the place it should be once they've been blindfolded and spun around three times. The one that gets it the closest will win.

Decorations:
Mickey ears, cut out tinker bell, streamers, Disney banner, arts and crafts recreation of the park gate.

Special Event: dress like your favorite character!

Guest Speaker:
Cortney or Katie could dress up like a Disney princess and visit camp sites. :-D
OR
SU works with Disney to arrange internships. We could ask one of them to stop by and talk about their Disney experience.
OR
A local singer to come by and do a Disney concert of Disney songs, sing along style.

Arts and Crafts
Decorate Mickey ears: construction paper, markers, glitter
Decorate a princess crown: same as above
Build a castle: shoe boxes, tissue boxes, cups, Dixie cones, paint, glue, glitter

Games
Low active: watch a Disney Movie
High active: create an hop-stacle course (hopscotch/obstacle hybrid) with sidewalk chalk, create activity stations in a big loop (swim like nemo, hop like Brer Rabbit, twirl like a princess, etc.)
High active: Cinderella’s Slipper - Two teams are formed (3 males and 3 females per team).

Each of the females removes one shoe.

All shoes are put in a large pile at the other end of the playing area. On "GO", one boy and one girl from each team pair up as follows: The boy grabs the broom handle while the girl steps (crouches) on the broom holding on to the handle. They race to the pile of shoes, with the boy pulling "Cinderella" behind him. The boy must find the girl's shoe (she may not talk!), put it on her foot and pull her back to the starting line, where the next couple is waiting. The game ends when all girls are wearing their own shoes!

Kings and Queens
The group stands in a circle and the leader closes his eyes and drops a ball on someone's shoe. That person becomes IT.

The IT could throw the soft ball (nerf) directly at any one at any time. If the person was hit on any part of the body except the closed fists, that person becomes part of IT's team.

The IT folks could pick up the ball with bare hands and then run with the ball or toss to each other in order to position to get more ITs. Players who had not been tagged with the ball can carry the ball between two closed fists and can also "bat" the ball around to any part of the field with a closed fisted hand.

Non-ITs sometimes displayed excellent form in keeping the ball away for the ITs by batting it to each other quite deftly. Touching the ball with an open hand put you on IT side. The game is played until there is only one Non-it remaining.

1. Providing a description of decorations you will need to ensure your space is fitting to the theme
-Get some streamers, balloons, and glitter. Also make some posters with Disney characters on it. Put some stars around the site with some wands. Make posters with some Disney quotes on them and put them around the site.
2. An idea for a special event for the theme week and steps to ensure success
-Have a movie day. Watch some of the Disney movies make some popcorn and have them watch some movies. Then after the movie you could have them act out their favorite scene from the movie or their favorite scene from any Disney movie and the audience has to guess it.
3. A guest speaker for the week that would be accessible (no celebrities, unobtainable people/groups- people you can actually have a chance of booking without cost to the program)
-A guest speaker could be someone that has been to Disney world or Disney land recently to talk about their experience and what they like about it. Also they could talk about the different characters that they saw walking around. Also they could bring in pictures of their experience. I went to Disney world my senior year of high school so I could bring in some pictures to show the kids and tell them about my experience.
4. 2 arts and crafts projects specific to theme and supplies needed
-Mickey Mouse ears-you would need construction paper, markers, glitter
-Seven dwarfs- you would need toilet paper rolls, felt, markers, and different construction paper. They would decorate the toilet paper rolls as the seven dwarfs of snow white.
5. 3 high active/low active games specific to theme
-Low activity- Toy Story themed bingo. They have sheets with different characters on it and then just play regular bingo with the kids.
-Low activity- Pin the eye on Mike (the one eye monster for monsters inc.)- you would need a big poster board of a drawing mike and then a cut out of the eye and have the kids try and place the eye where it should be.
-High activity- Disney tag- when the kid is tagged they have to stay frozen and the only way they can become unfrozen would be by someone else coming up and dancing around for a few seconds and then they both are free.

1. Decorations: Streamers, balloons, posters, cut-outs and quotes from Disney characters and movies, a cut-out of Cinderella's castle. Have different sections of the gym decorated for different Disney and Pixar movies, have a Cinderella "dress up" corner, a Cars corner with a race track taped to the floor for the kids to race cars on, and more.
2. Special Event: Movie Day! Plan to do it on Friday, but if it rains one day during the week move it to that day. Break the kids into groups earlier in the week and have them create shortened versions of their favorite Disney/Pixar movie and act it out for the rest of camp (costumes and props included!). In the afternoon, make popcorn and watch a movie with everyone.
3. Guest Speaker: Try to find an SU student or recent graduate who participated in the Disney College Program and have them tell the kids about their experience.
4. Arts and Crafts:
-Mickey Mouse Ears: Cut out cardboard or foam circles (with a flat bottom) to use as the ears, and then paint them black. Attach them to some sort of fabric, string, or headband to create the headband part of the ears (we may have to play with the materials to see what works best). Kids can also make bows and paint them red and white if they want to be "Minnie Mouse"
-Props for "Movie Day": break the kids into their movie groups and have them paint and create any costumes and props for their skits for the end of the week.
5. Games:
-Musical Chairs with Disney Music in the background (low active)
-"Around the Park" Relay: break the kids into teams and have them in compete in sections of the relay relating to rides at a Disney Park or a movie (waltz with the Beast like "Beauty and the Beast", swim in the sea like "The Little Mermaid", build a "snowman" like Olaf in "Frozen", etc.) (high active)
-"Snag the Shoe": a spinoff of capture the flag, but this time you are looking for Cinderella's slipper! (high active)

1. Decorations that could be used for Disney Week could be various colored steamers, mouse ears, and other Disney decorations. I know the dollar store sells a lot of Mickey themed decorations. We could make a Cinderella’s castle!

2. A potential special activity for this week could be a Disney movie. We could also have Disney themed snacks for the campers.

3. An idea for a guest speaker for the week could be an art student interested in animation. They could talk about how Disney animates their movies.

4. Mickey and Minnie Mouse Masks
The children can use paper plates and construction paper to create a Mickey or Minnie mouse mask and of course, ears! The materials needed would be paper plates, paint, construction paper, and glue.

Winnie the Pooh Puppets
Materials needed are paper bags, construction paper, and glue. The children can make various character puppets and have a Winnie the Pooh puppet show!

5. Guess Who Disney Style
The children sit in a circle with different Disney characters taped to their foreheads. The children take turns asking yes or no questions until they guess their character. This is a low active game and everyone can continue to be involved even when they have guessed their characters.

Heroes vs. Villains
This is a type of tag in which the children are assigned a villain character or a hero character from a Disney movie. The campers can only tag the opposite of what they are. The campers must sit when they are tagged, and can be untagged by another of their team. This is a high active game. After a certain amount of time, the counselor counts the amount sitting on either the team with the most people standing wins!

Disney Jeopardy
The campers will be divided into teams to play Jeopardy style trivia with all Disney facts. The children can be in teams of various age groups so that the older children do not have the upper hand over the younger children.

10 Re: Training #6 Homework 2 on May 13th 2014, 9:46 pm

1. Decorations

I would have red, black, and yellow streamers hanging from the ceiling because those are the colors that Mickey Mouse wears. i would have cut outs of all of the main Disney characters on the walls throughout the camp. i would also have some form of a cut out or blow up castle like the one in Disney World. I would also have Mickey Mouse ears for the kids to wear.

2. Special Event

I would have a Disney day where all of the kids can dress like their favorite Disney character from any of their movies. We could also watch a Disney movie that day and play games that revolve around the Disney theme.

3. Guest Speaker

I would have an art student from SU come and talk to the kids, I would prefer a drawing major so they could talk about the Disney animation and the process that they go through.

4. Arts and Crafts

Monsters Inc. Puppet: brown paper bags, blue, black, and white construction paper, scissors, and glue.

Mini Mickey Mouses: Black, red, yellow, and white construction paper, clue, and scissors.

5. Games

Donald Duck's Quacky Hoopla Hoop Game: this would be a low active game that works like a ring toss around bottles with the Disney characters faces on them. Certain characters would be worth more points than others.

Musical Chairs: this could be a low or high active game but it would be played using Disney songs.

Disney Obstacle Course: This would be a high active game. Each obstacle that the kids would have to make it through would be themed after a disney movie like frozen or the little mermaid.
