These 4 Babysitter Approved Games are Perfect for Your Next Babysitting Gig:
Disney Hidden Mickeys:
DESCRIPTION: The out-of-your-seat game with two ways to find Mickey! Play hide and seek with the colorful Mickey Markers, plus look for Hidden Mickeys on the cards! Two clever activities in one fun-filled game!
On your turn, flip over a card from the pile. If you flip a Mickey card, one player hurries to find the matching Hidden Mickey Marker in the house or yard! Bring it back in time to score a card! Once all the Mickey Markers have been found, search for Hidden Mickeys on your reward cards! Find the most Mickeys to win!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Combining hide-and-seek with hidden objects, this game gets players thinking and moving around while hunting for Hidden Mickeys around the room and in colorful illustrated scene cards. You can take this game outside for backyard play, or for older kids, try hiding the Mickey markers all around the house rather than in just one room for a bigger challenge!
PERFECT FOR: Groups! Up to six players can join in on the Disney Hidden Mickeys fun, so this one is perfect if you’re sitting for siblings or helping your mom supervise your little sister’s sleepover.
BABYSITTER TIP: Think you might forget where the Mickey markers are hidden? Take a photo with your phone or write them down!
Disney Princess See the Story:
DESCRIPTION: Look into the magical wishing well! You’ll see enchanting objects and memorable characters from your favorite Disney Princess stories. Race to find two pictures from the same story! Toss your token into the well and point out two pictures from the same Disney Princess story. If you’re right, collect one of the coins for your Disney Princess board! Be the first to collect 4 coins in a row to win!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: It’ll help you wrangle rowdy kids into chairs for some downtime. Kind of like a magical twist on Bingo, the Disney Princess See the Story gameplay is super familiar and easy to learn – even for little kids. Plus, you’ll love seeing their faces light up as they correctly match the characters and objects to their fav Disney movies!
PERFECT FOR: A before-bed or tea party activity. The gameplay is pretty low-key and could be great to help kids wind down before bedtime in a fun way. It would also pair perfectly with a tea party or princess party!
BABYSITTER TIP: This game is simple to set up but does require you to pop the story coins into plastic rings. Keep kids from getting impatient by having them help out or handle this step at home in advance!
Disney You Can Fly!:
DESCRIPTION: Choose one of four Disney character flyers — Dumbo, Buzz Lightyear, Pegasus, or Tinker Bell. Then soar through the sky, among the stars, to infinity and beyond in this imagination-fueled adventure! Create your own course through the house or outdoors and face funny flying challenges — throw with your eyes closed, between your legs, and more! Land your flyer the closest to the clouds and collect the most points to win!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: You can set up your course inside or outside, making You Can Fly the ultimate babysitter pick. Rainy day? Your plans aren’t ruined! Did a parent ask you to make sure the kids get some screen-free fresh air time? This game works perfectly. Plus, it plays differently every time based on how you set up the course, so repeat play is a ton of fun!
PERFECT FOR: Groups and Camp Counselors. Summer isn’t just prime time for babysitting gigs – a lot of you might be headed to camp as a counselor, and we think this is an amazing pick as a day camp activity! It gets kids on their feet and acting silly while getting to play with their Disney favs.
BABYSITTER TIP: Played this one a few times? Ask the kids to come up with some of their own rules and play styles to keep them engaged in the fun!
Disney Toy Story Talent Show:
DESCRIPTION: Step right up and show off your talents in a friendly competition of card play and challenges! You’ll be balancing, tossing, roping, and rolling your way to winning the most Prize Tickets! Players collect Prize Tickets for performing Talents and playing out their cards. At the end of the game, the player with the most points on their Prize Tickets wins!
NOTE: This one technically isn’t from the Babysitter Approved line, but it’s an absolute blast, and we think it’s a perfect babysitting pick.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Lots of laughs! The LOL-worthy gameplay is super silly and engaging. Plus, setup is a breeze. Take out the props and timer, shuffle some cards, and you’re pretty much ready to go!
PERFECT FOR: Parties and Movie Nights. Plan a Toy Story movie marathon and bring this game along to keep the magic going. Who wouldn’t want to do funny challenges using props inspired by iconic Toy Story characters?
BABYSITTER TIP: The Toy Story Talent Show challenges make for super silly share-worthy moments. Capture a few pics and videos for the parents to enjoy when they get home!
