These Mickey and Minnie photo frames are so much fun to make and a great craft to do with the kids!

If you love visiting the Disney Parks as much as we do, I bet you have loads of photos sitting on your camera or phone, don’t you?

I’m just as guilty! I’ve got literally thousands of photos from over the years that I’ve shared on my blog, but I rarely print them. These frames are the perfect opportunity to do so!

Why not print a few of your favorites and display in these adorable Disney picture frames? You could even write the date and the memory on the frame if you like!
