If you want to do a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme and it is an all boy crowd I would ditch anything Minnie mouse to start and keep the colour palette for the day to Mickey mouse colours: red and black with a small splash of yellow. If the guest of honour loves Donald duck (like my husband) remember to change everything so the focus is more on Donald. As always, you must always be flexible in planning!
For preschool boys I love the idea of a simple scavenger hunt. Print out cut outs of the characters from the computer, using a cricut or draw them yourself (you may want to laminate them for durability). Next I would create a large clubhouse out of a poster board. Then, Hide the characters around the venue with sticky tack (setting clear boundaries of course). Finally I would tell the kids that the show is about to start but the characters are everywhere and they need to help you find them before the show starts. As they race around you can give hints such as hot and cold, or could turn it into red light green light (so they have to freeze when you say red light). Once they have found a character they must bring it back to the “clubhouse” and re-stick the character there. Once all characters are found make sure you cheer for everyone and clap and dance to reward a job well done, then break out the popcorn and show the kids am episode of mickey mouse clubhouse because the gang is ready to go!
With preschool children it is important you stick to the basics because every child will be on a different level developmentally. Try pin the tail on Pluto for example.
I worked in a daycare last year and my kindergarteners loved doggy doggy where’s your bone…which for the purpose of the theme we will call Pluto Pluto where’s your bone?
To play: the children sit in a circle and one child sits in the middle and covers their eyes. A leader choices a child on the outside to hold the “bone” and once the bone is safely hidden in hands or lap the children say “Pluto Pluto where’s your bone? Someone took it from your home! Guess who? Maybe you! Maybe the monkeys from the zoo! Wake up Pluto! Where’s your bone?” the child in the middle then opens their eyes and has to guess who has the bone. Super simple. Super fun. The kids could play for hours!
