Sheriff Callie’s Wild West has taken Disney Junior by storm! Our post with Sheriff Callie Party ideas is one of our most popular articles right now so we are sharing even more Sheriff Callie fun today.


It’s the start of Rodeo Break here in Tucson, so after crafting a stick horse for Quinn to ride in the kindergarten parade, I made a fun version of Sheriff Callie’s blue horse, Sparky!

Stick Horse Supplies

Sparky Supplies

  • Wood stick, dowel or mop handle
  • Blue yarn
  • Blue duct (blue electrical tape would be easier)
  • Googly eyes
  • Black and blue felt
  • Blue sleep sock
  • Tan rope or twine
  • Blue handkerchief (I think a pink one would be cute too)
  • Stuffing
  • Zip tie

Quinn helped me make most of his horse, so I promise it’s very easy to make. In fact it would make a fun craft activity at a Sheriff Callie Party! It’s also inexpensive to make, I found most of the items at the dollar store. Check out my stick horse tutorial for all the details!

Besides a her own Sparky, your little Sheriff Callie might need a pretty pink cowgirl hat. Check out how to create Callie’s hat on Disney Junior!

If you make your own stick horse, we’d love to see it!

Sofia the First Songs from Enchancia

Do you have Sofia the First fans in your house? Yesterday we told you about the second season of Sofia the First starting soon. Today we want to chat a little about the new Sofia the First: Songs from Enchancia CD. We were sent a copy to review and I am happy to say it’s perfect for all little Sofia fans out there (and the big ones too)! It includes a total of 19 songs, 14 regular songs from the show, 4 bonus karaoke instrumentals and 1 bonus track – Be Who You Wanna Be.

Last summer we were constantly singing the cute Jake and Sophia duet, Be Who You Wanna Be, so it’s definitely our family’s favorite song from the CD. (You Can Always) Count On Baileywick and Good Little Witch are close runners-up – They are both quite catchy and featured in a couple of our favorite episodes from the first season of Sofia the first.

Available on iTunes and Amazon.

More about the Planes: Fire & Rescue

“Planes: Fire & Rescue” is a new comedy-adventure about second chances, featuring a dynamic crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildfire. When world famous air racer Dusty (voice of Dane Cook) learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his courageous team, including spirited super scooper Dipper (voice of Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie and a lively bunch of brave all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero. Directed by Bobs Gannaway (“Secret of the Wings”), “Planes: Fire & Rescue” hits theaters in 3D on July 18, 2014.
