DIY Disney Life-sized Board Game

“The Toy Story (©Disney) one,” he said confidently. My kindergartner (I still can’t wrap my head around that…) knew right away which book bag he wanted when we turned down the aisle in the store. Prior to this whole school thing starting I was lucky to soak up nearly 2 weeks of extra time with my boys that normally would have been spent working. It was absolutely wonderful and flew by just as fast as my oldest son has been growing the last 5 years.

Despite all of the change there is at least one thing that has remained constant. He loves Toy Story, as does his younger brother. Does not matter which one, they enjoy them all…though I think the release of the 4th one revived their feelings. Their blue eyes sparkled when I asked if they’d like to help make a life-sized board game that was centered around Toy Story. “Mommy, I’d love to do that but what does life-sized mean?” I actually got the idea from a local library that has hosted a life-sized Candy Land board game the last few years -I explained to my boys it would be somewhat similar to that. Off to planning we went!

“Why not just play a regular board game, Ashley? Why go through the trouble?” I know someone out there is asking that. For one, our Disney Eye Found it Game! seems to be lost. Two, I wanted to take advantage of the gorgeous weather outside but needed a change from the swing set. Three, sometimes it is just fun to be creative and I like to encourage that in my kids. I’ve noticed that when their little minds are focused on creating and trying something new they are less likely to be feuding with each other because they are so engaged -an added bonus! You following me? If so, here is a list of the main supplies that we used if you want to give it a go-round -your kids will have fun!
