Every year the preschool I work at hosts a Spaghetti dinner. The school is transformed into a small Italian restaurant, the teachers cook and act as waitstaff and current families and alumni quickly fill all available reservation spots.
Seeing the transformation from preschool to restaurant is magical for the kids. They walk down the “secret steps,” a set of stairs they are not normally allowed to use, and are completely mesmerized by the transformation of their classroom.
Because of this bit of magic it was only fitting that this year we decided to show our Disney Side throughout the evening.**
We took our inspiration from Lady and the Tramp and sticking with the classical characters, sprinkled bits of Disney throughout. The staff all wore something Disney – a small Mickey tattoo, a Goofy tie, Mini Mouse shoelaces – in addition to something that showed our school spirit. Because while we love Disney we were there to show our love for our little school as well.
When families checked in we gave them a Disney luggage tag with a number on it.
During each seating we held a drawing and gave away school themed and Disney themed prizes – many of the great prizes were from the amazing package I received courtesy of MomSelect and Disney Side @Home Celebration.
On the tables, along with Disney word searches and coloring books, we had cards with Disney trivia and school trivia. This brought a lot of laughs and the kids had a great time learning Disney facts and facts about their teachers and community.
It was a great evening and we had a ton of fun combining two things that we love – our little school and Disney.
