mother's day

The day to pamper your mom is almost here! You should pamper her every day but the official day is coming up. This Mother’s Day (May 10th), you can celebrate the mom in your life in Disney style. Whether it’s Disney food, Disney crafts, or Disney gifts, we’ve got some great ideas for you to give your mom a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Minnie Tsum Tsum Pancakes – Every mom LOVES breakfast in bed and what better breakfast than Minnie Tsum Tsum pancakes?

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 tbsp baker’s sugar (super fine)
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Butter
  • Melted chocolate
  • Strawberry
  • Whipping cream
  • Pink gel icing

How to make them:

  1. In a bowl, sift in flour and cocoa, combine with sugar.
  2. Gradually whisk in the eggs and milk. Mix until you get a batter.
  3. Heat a pan over medium heat and brush with melted butter.
  4. Use a ladle to scoop up mixture into the pan. This will be for Minnie’s face.
  5. Use a tablespoon to scoop up mixture into the pan. This will be for Minnie’s ears. Repeat to make the other ear.
  6. Use melted milk chocolate to draw Minnie’s features. Place the chocolate in a zip-top bag, cut a small hole, pipe on parchment paper, leave in fridge to harden, and then peel off. Place on the pancake. You can also pipe directly onto the pancake, if preferred.
  7. Cut strawberry in half for Minnie’s bow. Place on the pancake.
  8. Using a mixer, whip up whipping cream until soft peaks form. Use a spatula to spread it out on the pancake to form Minnie’s face.
  9. Scoop a little whipped cream in a zip-top bag, cut a small hole, and pipe round dots onto Minnie’s bow.
  10. Squeeze out a dot of pink gel icing for Minnie’s cheeks.

Mickey Mug for Mom – Make a magical gift for mom that she can use every day! Personalize it by using her favorite colors.

What You’ll Need

  • White ceramic mug
  • Alphabet stickers
  • T-shirt or fabric
  • Acrylic paint for glass and ceramics
  • Medium circle sponge paintbrush
  • Small circle sponge paintbrush

How to make it

  1. Wash mugs with soap and water.
  2. Press alphabet stickers onto fabric to lessen stickiness.
  3. Carefully remove stickers from fabric and press onto mug.
  4. Prepare a palette of ceramic paints. Choose three favorite colors.
  5. Paint layers of Mickey shapes over the alphabet stickers. Use a medium circle sponge paintbrush to create Mickey’s head, and a smaller circle sponge paintbrush to create Mickey’s ears.
  6. Once dry, remove stickers.
  7. Set the oven to 360 degrees and immediately place the mug in the oven. To prevent cracking, do not pre-heat oven prior to placing ceramic mug inside. Pre-heating may cause the ceramic mug to heat up too quickly.
  8. Bake mugs for 30 minutes. When time is complete, turn oven off and allow mug to cool there. Removing mug from oven too quickly may cause the mug to crack.
  9. Present mug to Mom on Mother’s Day!
