Preschool Backyard Adventure


My twins couldn’t be more in love with Mickey, especially after meeting him in person on our Disney trips last year. An icon for decades, but he’s also such a sweet mouse in person! It’s no surprise that they were thrilled to get a ‘Quest for the Crystal Mickey Adventure Kit’ in the mail, and didn’t waste any time in tearing the package open.

Included was a DVD copy of ‘Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Quest for the Crystal Mickey’, which is in stores now. The DVD includes four extra episodes of Disney Junior’s Emmy®-nominated series “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” and a FREE Adventure Activity Map plus fun stickers!

Join Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and all their pals in the newest Clubhouse crusade. When the legendary Crystal Mickey goes missing, Mickey and friends go on an adventure to save the Clubhouse from losing its magic. Grab your hat, buckle your seatbelt, and get ready to embark on a thrilling adventure in “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: The Quest for the Crystal Mickey!”

There’s no time to lose after greedy Plunderin’ Pete snatches the legendary Crystal Mickey statue from the Clubhouse. Without this sparkly statue’s magic, the Clubhouse will disappear forever!

The girls watched the DVD closely, not really taking their eyes off the screen the entire time. That kid-stare of awe, so cute.

Yet as soon as it was over, they rushed to get the rest of the gear from their kit and be-lined out to the backyard. Donning hats, backpacks, journals, maps and binoculars, they sought out their own backyard adventure.

The mission? To save the backyard from Summer pests! I know, serious business isn’t it?

They spent hours playing together, yet the extent of their mission isn’t really known. I was told early on that it was ‘top secret’ just to them. I guess this Mom wasn’t privy to such information as I didn’t have my own Safari Hat and binoculars.

Imaginations soared high for the twins, thanks to ideas from ‘Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Quest for the Crystal Mickey’. It’s been a while since we’ve had a new Mickey DVD, so it’s been a favorite in our house since.

I’m keeping this information close, since the twins have lots of birthday parties coming up this Summer. Pairing this DVD with some basic adventure gear, to make a little basket, is such a wonderful gift idea for preschoolers. I should know, I have 2 roaming my backyard again this very moment!
