When we adapted, the boys would flip one card over to show the group of fruit. I would call out a number (1-5) or a fruit name for the boys to start counting fruit. The youngest would get a head start at counting while the older one closed his eyes. For the token game, they would choose which number or fruit they would look for in each card before looking at the card. It made it easier for the 3 year old.
The Wilderness Explorers at Animal Kingdom is a great, FREE activity to help educate your children (and adults) about animals, conservation, and more. This is a scavenger hunt style game that is based the Wilderness Explorer troop that Russell is a part of in the movie “Up.” You can sign up for the game near the bridge from The Oasis to Discovery Island. You’ll be given a map showing locations where you can earn badges and an instruction booklet. When you locate the areas to earn badges, you’ll need to find a cast member who will to help you complete the predetermined activity at that station. Once you do, you will be given a badge, or sticker, to add to your book. The cast members will tailor the questions or activities to different age groups.
This game is throughout Animal Kingdom. Some of the badges require you to ride or walk through an attraction. There are 32 badges in all to collect. You can expect several hours to complete all 32 badges. However, these can be spread out over days and does not have to be completed all at one time.
This activity is appropriate for all ages!

I can’t believe it’s already time for birthday party #7 for C-man. Last year was the year he “outgrew” a Disney themed party and went with a football theme. This year, Minecraft won out. I don’t even get what Minecraft is all about! So we are in full planning mode for our party next month. The invites are finished and pinning has begun for the rest of the party! Stay tuned for more!!
On the food table, I used a simple black plastic table cloth as the “road” and using yellow duct tape, I made stripes across the middle (even though you can’t really see the stripes in this picture due to cones and platters!). I also had several Cars bumper stickers that I stuck on the table for extra flair! I found checked racing flags on sale and used those with orange cones we already had as a simple centerpiece. Lightening McQueen waited patiently between the cones! 🙂
At the end of the day when you find your child asleep on his bedroom floor, you know you’ve had a successful party! Sweet dreams baby boy!
