How to Create Disney Magic at Home - Disney Crafts Roundup

By Livia Taylor 03/17/2020
 
If you're anything like us, you may find yourself spending more time at home than usual. With that in mind, we've created a roundup of Disney crafts you can do to create some Disney magic at home!
 
These Disney crafts are perfect for families to do together to celebrate all things Disney. We hope you find something on this list of crafts that helps you stay busy while the whole country is practicing social distancing. Some are so easy that all you'll need is paper and a printer! Others include items you may already have around. And if not, we've updated many of the posts to include supply lists so you can head to Amazon and order anything you need for our favorite Disney crafts. When you're done with all your at-home crafts, consider signing up for Hulu and adding the Disney+ upgrade! Our article, Best Disney+ Shows and Best Shows on Hulu, has a roundup of what to watch. You can sign up for Hulu and Disney+ using our affiliate link HERE.
