Mickey Mouse Crafts for Kids birthday parties

Whether you’re getting ready for a kid’s birthday party, decorating for Christmas or Halloween, or just need a fun activity to keep your toddlers busy, you can create some fun by adding a little Disney!

Here are some Mickey Mouse crafts that I found on Pinterest. Some are for adults, and others are for kids of various ages. Enjoy!

Mickey Mouse Crafts for Birthdays

Mickey Mouse-themed birthday parties are really popular with toddlers and preschoolers. Here are some crafts you can make as party decorations, as well as crafts kids can during the party.

How to Make a Mickey Mouse Head Pinata

My kids always loved pinatas at their birthday parties! This pinata isn’t “difficult,” exactly, although making it is somewhat time-consuming. Expect it to take the better part of an afternoon.

Use a “Mickey head” template to cut two Mickey heads out of cereal boxes. Then cut a strip of cardboard that connects the two heads around the edges, creating a “Mickey box” to put the candy in.

Tape a string behind the ears and cover it with red and black tissue paper.

DIY Mickey Mouse Pom Poms

I remember making pom poms when I was a kid (although mine never turned out as nice as the ones below!)

This could be a nice party craft for kids to make and take home. All you need are scissors, black, red, and yellow yarn, and a pom pom maker.

Depending on their ages, kids might need some adult assistance, especially with the scissors.

Here’s another cute craft that creates an instant party favor for your little guests!

Paint a jumbo craft stick red, then print and cute out the Mickey head templates on white cardstock and the Mickey shirt template on black cardstock. Draw on a face with marker, glue together the pieces, and add two mini buttons.

Make Your Own Mickey Mouse Shirt

Here’s another neat idea that would be great for a party and allows kids to be creative. Order some Hanes t-shirts and use a heat transfer vinyl to put Mickey heads on them. Then give each kid their own shirt and some fabric paint and let them go to town!

Mickey Mouse Christmas Ornament Crafts

Want a little Disney in your Christmas? Here are 3 fairly easy ways to make your own Disney Christmas ornaments:

These Mickey ornaments are pretty and really simple to make. All you need to do is remove the cap and snip off the “neck” of two small ornament balls, then use a glue gun to attach it to a larger ornament to create “Mickey ears.”

Then simply thread some ribbon or string, and attach a bow if you like.

Here’s another Mickey variation on a round Christmas ornament. Simply paint a plastic ornament with all-purpose paint (you will probably need more than one coat), then create a Mickey silhouette with different sized daubers and/pr paint brushes. When it’s dry, add some ribbon for hanging.

These terra cotta pot ornaments are just adorable!

Turn a pot upside down, paint it with red and black patio paint (with optional white polka dots). When the paint is dry, cut out some black felt circles and glue gun them to the pots for ears.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse Christmas Stockings

But why stop at just making ornaments? You can continue with a Mickey-themed Christmas by making these inexpensive stockings!

Simply cut the shapes you need out of white, red, and black felt (which you can get at the Dollar Store). Then add two piece of black felt ears with a cutout of a cereal box between then to give them shape. Add a red ribbon for Minnie.
