Hello my dear and welcome back. I’m really happy to share with you this stunning idea of using Disney magic to plant the seed of goodness in our kids.

Make sure you got a cup of coffee and pull a seat for I am going to give you “30 powerful lessons in life learnt by Disney” that will actually work in helping our kids to be their best.

And as a parent in your place, I thought of giving you a small cherish gift, a totally free printable version of the lessons’ list (with cheerful colours inspired from Disney princesses’ dresses IN TWO TYPING VERSIONS WITHIN ONE FILE). YAY!! Isn’t that amazing

The idea came when I saw my kids arguing about something then I reminded them with a situation from a movie, one of them replied with explanation and conclusion of how the situation works on them or not

I was thrilled by the answer and knew that those movies DO work on changing our kids so I did a little research and found other places writing about lessons learnt from Disney movies which inspired me but didn’t use them literally.

Why didn’t I take what’s online literally?

Social reason:

  • Coming from my region some stuff doesn’t apply to our life but reassigning the moral in roundabout words worked fine with me.
  • Also, I chose what fits with the situations my girls face in family, school, parents state… etc.

Psychological reason:

  • Let’s be honest you don’t want to bring up a lesson which includes parents deeply in love with each other when the kid is suffering from parents’ divorce. (my case)

Financial reason:

  • As much as those lessons are powerful in a positive way, don’t choose lessons that include money spending or over budgeting that you can’t afford then break the child from the inside.

The reason why we are using these lessons with our kids is to:

  • Raise their self-esteem
  • Give them a reason to follow their dreams
  • Build up reactions for everyday life situations
  • Strengthen their vocabulary in an argumentative way
  • Plant the seed of goodness in their heart and mind

To be honest they would be great as reminders in chatting with your daughter like this post.

What is the best way to use these lessons in your benefit?

If you are here because we both me and you plus every caring mom is seeking ways to be the most creative educator for our children. So you can’t stand there commenting on the child saying “ pfft … there comes Elsa the complicated head running from her troubles”

Big No No No…..

Use the clever way because what comes fast goes fast, we want them to re-read, re-listen, re-see the goodness so it will stick in them.

These are the few tips that worked for me and so excited to share them with you (comment below if you got any more tips)

Turn them into a keychain

  • Printing them on a paper then laminate it and cut it is one option.
  • Or perhaps printing them on cardstock then cutting them.
  • Pinch the corner of all cards then insert them in the key chain ring

Fridge Magnets

  • If you followed the same method above you can use sticky magnets instead of punching holes then stick them on the fridge.

Lunch bag/ secret notebook/ school uniform message

  • It’s self-explanatory, cut each lesson and insert it where you want your child to find it when you aren’t around to draw an adorable smile.

Hook & Loop

Similar to magnets you can stick these on the back of the messages with a loop piece on a picture frame or mirror or bathroom door.

Now it’s time to give you my version of the (30 powerful lessons learnt from Disney)
