Ideas to discuss with your children

Minnie’s Masquerade is the first story from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Masquerade DVD. It’s a story about having fun with friends, and helping your friends out when they have a problem. Everybody at the ball gets a prize for coming dressed in costume, sending the message that they’re all different but are rewarded just the same. Kids are encouraged to get involved in counting, identifying shapes and sorting.

Values in this movie that you could follow up with your children include:

  • helping people who have a problem
  • having a go and having fun with friends, rather than trying to be better than everyone else.
