Stuff I Keep Forgetting To Tell You (Part 4): Princess Ballet Camp

{You thought I was kidding about this series, didn’t you? If only you were so lucky.}

I know I showed you pictures from the first day of Lydia’s Princess Ballet Camp. You remember, six preschoolers dressed like Snow White while they danced with their long-legged (also dressed like Snow White) teacher? The class was absolutely adorable. Every day was a new Princess with a new costume and a new story. They played games, danced, sang and even got a craft kit to take home.

Honestly, I think Lydia thought she was at Disney World. In fact, Disney World should offer this at the parks. It was that fun. I’m going to give you a little rundown of each day because it was so creative you might want to steal borrow it for a party or a fun day with your kids!

SNOW WHITE
Best Activity: Each girl got to walk down a balance beam alone. At the end, the teacher was holding the Magic Mirror. All the other girls chanted, “Mirror, Mirror, on the wall! Who’s the fairest one of all?” Then the girl on the balance beam would pop her head out of the magic mirror and say their name! How sweet is that?!

Cutest Dance: They danced with brooms. I guess it went to “Whistle While You Work” and it was enchanting!

Take Home: We got a silver popsicle stick, a big silver posterboard circle and several flat gems. We glued everything together and had a fancy Magic Mirror of our own!

Most Adorable Snow White:


JASMINE
Best Activity: They played with scarves. They brushed off their shoes, their elbows, their knees and their noses with scarves. They put them over their head and pretended to hide. They danced around and waved the scarves above their heads. They looked just like a darling (and non-sexy) harem!

Cutest Dance: They all sat on their magic carpets and did a little egyptian-crazy-hands-rock-your-head-back-and-forth dance.

Take Home: We got a large rectangle of felt (like the regular size you can buy for 35cents), a few pieces of strings to tie in the precut slits for tassels, several pieces of ribbon and a few butterfly sequins. We glued the ribbons and sequins on our Magic Carpet and flew all over the world! (Literally, Lydia pretended to fly to Alabama to see where she was born!)

Most Adorable Jasmine:

CINDERELLA
Best Activity: They played the Glass Slipper version of Duck, Duck, Goose. One girl was given a special glittery, sequined shoe. She walked around the circle and handed it to another girl. When that girl got up, she took her spot. It was non-competitive and so cute!

Cutest Dance: Uhm, I missed some of this day because I had to feed Asa in the lobby…

Take Home: Princess Wand. This was just a pre-made craft foam kit from the craft store. But fetching nonetheless.

Most Adorable Cinderella:

ARIEL
Best Activity: Parachute games and a bubble machine tied for best activity. On the parachute they put a little ball (or something) that was supposed to be Sebastian. Lydia still talks about how Sebastian fell on the floor!

Cutest Dance: The swimming. Every time they’d swim I’d crack up laughing!

Take Home: Sebastian! It was a pre-cut red posterboard crab. We used enclosed brads to attach his arms and glued on wiggly eyes. We still play peek-a-boo with him!

Most Adorable Ariel: (she’s the one in the pink headband)

(Sorry about the car reflection…we were outside looking through a window…)

How awesome was that? So, yeah, all the moms looked at each other on the last day and said, “It’s no use is it? We HAVE to sign them up for ballet now.” And we did. Lydia had her first day of “real” ballet today. She was delicious as ever. More pictures to follow, I’m sure.
