At the end of the month, we are taking our boys to Disney. We have been keeping it a secret (until now), but my husband and I wanted to tell them a month ahead so that we had 30 day to build excitement. Here is how we told our boys, "We're going to Disney!"
We started by telling our boys that we had a little "family movie night" surprise for them, and we gave them 3 paper bags containing clues.
Bag #1 contained a bathing suit.
Bag #2 contained a picture of their cousins (who will be accompanying us on the trip).
Bag #3 contained a toy airplane.
Then, after a few guesses, the boys opened a big bag filled with Disney stickers, Disney tattoos, balloons, and a Disney Countdown (which you can read about here).
The boys and I are super-excited about our trip, and every day the anticipation is building.
Have you ever surprised your little ones with a family vacation? How did you break the news?
