Here we go with another one of those weeks we were sure he’d like. (Yet – like Curious George school – we were concerned about whether he’d recognize that this fun subject is his theme for the week!) But yes, Mickey Mouse preschool was quite a fun theme for a week of homeschool. 🙂

- Gave him these with the included stamp pad!
- First, on the Silhouette Cameo, made circles in two sizes (large circle for head, two small for ears)
- Cut a bunch of these from black cardstock
- Then, just gave him some red cardstock rectangles and a glue stick — to see if he would make these as his Valentines! 🙂
- This is from the pack — thank you!
- I printed this out in color (so he could see the color names) and gave it to him with his favorite colored pencils.
- I was surprised to see this free Minnie Mouse maze from Toys ‘R Us!
- From the preschool pack — printed in color and gave to him with scissors!
- Found a gem that I had bought long ago — the Disney Mickey & Friends Color Find Wipe Clean Activity Board!
- He sure understands this a lot more than he did last time he saw it!
- A very cute activity from the 1+1+1=1 pack. Can you connect the M’s from Mickey to Minnie?
- Practice tracing shapes with this activity from the Mickey pack!
- This was quite an easy dough tray, thanks to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Disney Mouskatools Set!
- Just put this set, a small Mickey cookie cutter, some tools and three colors of dough for a busy (but again, easy!) play dough tray.
- Another great activity from the pack — trace the names of your good friends Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Goofy!
- Love this idea! This is printed from the Mickey Mouse Math post by Colors and Kindergarten — thank you so much!
- I gave this to him with Mickey-colored Unifix Cubes, plus a dry erase marker.
- Dad was to help him with this activity as needed.
- This worksheet was printed from Disney Junior — lots of great stuff there!
- This activity is from the Mickey pack – thank you!
- Is there any character with more coloring pages dedicated to him than Mickey? There
is an awesome collectionused to be an awesome collection of of Disney coloring pages from Disney-Stationary.com! That is where the pages here were originally from.
- Gave him a whole bunch of these printed along with a full set of colored pencils.
- These newly-styled Mickey stickers are from Disney Family
- I call them “stickers” because I did not print them on sticker paper — I just gave them to him to practice cutting some tough shapes.
- The final selection from the tot pack — Mickey graphing!
- Printed both the graph sheet and die in color. Trimmed and folded the die for a fun game!
We recently took a Disney trip and there is sure nothing like taking a tot to the Happiest Place on Earth! He’s at a lovely age where the rides don’t matter; we could do tons of fun things even on a busy (VERY busy) day!
We knew we wanted to at least try to translate this fun to school, and it worked! Now that we are “Pre-K” and to me, that means a lot of preschool worksheets — I was nervous copyright would get in the way. So I am extremely grateful for the 1+1+1=1‘s Mickey Mouse Preschool Printable Pack! Thank you!
Bottom line, this was a fun week. It is nice to pepper in these themes every once in a while!
Next we’ll see if he remembers that time I asked, “Hey E, what would you want your school to be about?” The answer – Robots!
