Make my Mickey and the Roadster Racers road trip activity kit It’s perfect for Mickey lovers! Thanks to Disney Junior for sponsoring this post.
The summer travel season is upon us so I made this road trip activity kit inspired by Mickey and the Roadster Racers, to keep kids like Blake and Kayla entertained on the go. This mini suitcase is filled with cars, snacks, some story time inspiration and even some printable road trip badges I whipped up.
Blake is obsessed with cars, trucks and anything that moves. So we’ll be tuning in for new episodes of Mickey and the Roadster Racers on Disney Channel June 16th at 8:30 am. It’s the first FRiYAY of summer vacation for Kayla and Blake. So we can relax and couch cuddle without the stress of getting Kayla to school at 7:30
Did you know that new episodes of Disney Junior programs are airing first during the morning block (about 6-10am) on Disney Channel this summer? The first new episode rolling out this summer is “Daredevil Goofy” and when I saw this Goofy in a bathtub there was absolutely no way I was leaving the store without it. None.
Want to know what I put in my Mickey and the Roadster Racers road trip activity kit? Here you go!
I started with a plush Mickey because everyone needs something to snuggle with on a long car ride. He was the perfect size to bring on a trip. Huggable but not a space hog.
I added a few die cast character vehicles so there were enough to race AND so there would be no fighting over the cars…in theory. One of my favorite parts of this kit is the PlayTape. It’s a re-positionable paper tape that looks like a road and doesn’t leave sticky residue behind. It was perfect for Mickey and his friends to race on.
The PlayTape went on the inside and outside of the box to create roads the kids could race their vehicles around. I added the leftover roll of tape to the box so they could design their own track as well at our destination.
Next came some snacks and Story Cubes. These are like dice that you can toss in the little suitcase and based on how they land you use your imagination to create a story. They are perfect for an older kids like Kayla and a good conversation starter. Even though Blake’s language is more limited he was happy to toss the dice and launch into a monologue. Whether the monologue was reflective of the dice, we might never know.
Last but definitely not least were my printable road trip badges. I thought it would be fun to create some badges which you can download here and print on 8.5″ x 11″ sticker paper. They are meant to be small rewards for embracing a road trip.
There are badges for everything from being a caring brother or sister along the way to spotting cows. My personal favorites are the “Nap Master” badge and the “Sing Along Superstar” badge. Blake was pretty excited about the “Snack Gobbler” badge…and it was fitting!
Disney Junior programs every FriYAY morning on Disney Channel all summer long. You won’t just see Mickey – prepare for Elena of Avalor (a house favorite!) Puppy Dog Pals, The Lion Guard and Sofia the First too.
