Mickey Mania!  A fun party game center


When I was chosen to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration I couldn’t help but to think of all kinds of ways I could show my #DisneySide! One thing that I knew for sure was that I really wanted to create some sort of a traditional amusement park style game center.

Looking around the house I found some big cardboard boxes, plastic cups and empty drink bottles. Hmmm, I’m on to something so I set them up side by side and really brainstormed each step along the way coming up with these three classic games.  A ball toss, a ring toss and a knock ’em all down game.

After deciding what games I wanted each box to be,  I then had to figure out a way to make it look cool and fun. I began by taking each box and covering the inside with a cheap red plastic tablecloth, and painted the ball toss cut out.

I then held the boxes together with some big clips, and lined them up how I wanted it to look.



Next I covered the flaps with a striped wrapping paper and secured them on each side and in between each of the games.

I then flipped the top flaps up and tore off and used the bottom flaps from the bottom of the boxes and wrapped it all in the striped wrapping paper to make a big marquee. I used some extra cardboard to support and brace the top and taped it down with clear packing tape.

Now it’s really coming together! I was on a roll!  Next I made a cute banner, added the tablecloth and a few of the decorations we made for the party and BAM! our Mickey Mania Game Center was done!


Mickey Mania was indeed a hit and all of the kids at our party had a blast playing the games!
