Donald Duck’s Birthday Party

Happy Birthday Donald Duck!

Donald Duck’s birthday  is June 9th!   He was born in 1934 which makes him 80 years old this year.  Doesn’t he look great for his age :).   Donald debuted in “The Wise Little Hen” Silly Symphony cartoon and was immediately loved by all.   Today we are celebrating Donald with all of our Disney friends in a fun Donald’s Birthday Party Blog Hop.   After you read through our fun game below be sure to hop over to all the blogs to see all the other great ideas to celebrate Donald’s Birthday.

Play Donald Duck's Quacky Hoopla Game with DisneyDayByDay

Our addition to the party is a fun game called Donald Duck’s Quacky Hoopla Game.  We found this fun game on Disney’s Spoonfull Site so head over there for the step by step details of the game.   It’s a simple ring toss style game, but the fun is in making your own Donald Duck Pin (water bottle).   This also makes it easy to know which water bottle is yours later in the party.

The template for your Donald can be found on the Spoolful Site Here or you can use our pre-colored one by clicking here.   Simply cut out the template, color with your favorite colors, use tape (we used packaging tape) to apply the Donald face to the water bottle and start the ring toss fun.   We used dive rings for a pool, but you can also cut the center out of a paper plate.

Maleficent in theaters May 30, 2014

“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.

Disneynature was launched on Earth Day in 2008.    It’s mission was to bring the top nature filmmakers together to develop amazing wildlife stories for the big screen.   The first four films Earth, Oceans, African Cats, and Chimpanzee were four of the top grossing nature films to date.

Disney has always been a huge supporter of conservation, in the creation of Walt Disney World, around 8,700 acres (nearly one-third of Walt Disney World’s property) has been set
aside as a dedicated wildlife conservation area.
