Quarantined because of coronavirus with everything cancelled and our family time now taking up all of our time. That is where we all find ourselves these days. As I was thinking of things to do with my kids for two weeks (or longer) while we are all stuck at home and “social distancing”, I came up with the idea of 14 days of Disney princess activities in quarantine because well there are 14 official Disney princesses and 14 days equals 2 weeks.
So if you wanted something fun to do with your little girls (aka the little princesses), while you are at home for 14 days or more, you could potentially pick a Disney princess for each day and do themed activities around each one. Since there is a lot of ideas here, you could spread out each princess over a couple of days or just pick your favorite ones.

If you wanted to add a few extra days you could do a Tinkerbell day, a Sophia day, an Elena day and an Anastasia day. But for our purposes, I’m going to focus on the ones that are officially labeled as Disney princesses as well as Elsa and Anna who apparently are not actually part of the official Disney princess line up. Crazy, right? They are so popular that they got their own franchise but I figured I would include them, so that we can reach the 14 day quota!
Disney Princess Activities & Themes
So how would you create a theme around each princess? Well you can go as elaborate or as simple as you want. Some of the ideas may be better suited for older girls (like my 6 and 7 year olds), and some of the ideas can be done with toddlers (like my two year old) or preschoolers.
You can adapt the activities to fit the ages and interests of your daughters and you can either just pick one thing to do per day or you can do all the things. I would suggest just going down the line of princesses starting with Snow White and following the Disney princess activities that I’ve outlined below. Some themed elements to include for each day:
A meal and/or a snack (we have this Disney princess cookbook which will give you a ton of menu ideas).
A game/craft/activity (if you want to go the really simple inexpensive route you can just print off coloring pages for each princess.
The movie/soundtrack/book (Disney+ or Amazon Prime should have all the movies if you don’t own them already).
Themed dress up clothes, (if you have princess loving daughters like I do you probably already have a stash of dress up clothes they can use).
You can do this in any order but I would recommend you have your little princess/princesses dress up for each day, gather their themed dolls/toys (if they already own some princess ones), let them dance and sing to the soundtrack, do the activity/craft, play the game, read the book and watch the movie together. Prepare the themed meal or snack depending on what time of day it is appropriate for. Most of the food ideas I share are for lunch or dinner. The snack option is so that you can have a super easy themed idea if you don’t want to plan a whole meal.
Obviously you can do whatever you want, there are plenty of ideas online to choose from but here are my suggestions for each princess. Hopefully if you are like us where you already have a bunch of princess dress up clothes, movies and toys, you won’t need to buy very much but there are links below for anything you might want to purchase.

Add on Disney Princess Activities
Drawing the princesses is really fun for older girls. My daughters who are 6 and 7 have loved learning how to draw the princesses on Kids Art Hub
Princess board games could be substituted for the other games or activities listed. There are all sorts of options on Amazon. You could also just buy a couple packs of princess stickers, activity books or other princess craft kits if you don’t want to get the materials for individual crafts.
Don’t let this overwhelm you. If you want to do all of the Disney princess activities for 14 days, go for it! If it’s too much, you could just pick one or two ideas to use each day or you could stretch each princess theme out for a week, it’s really up to you. Have fun with it, get creative and take lots of pictures! If we have to be quarantined, it might as well be with the princesses!
A Real Quarantined Princess
Don’t forget that Rapunzel is the queen of quarantine! She spent almost 18 years locked up in a tower and she is completely isolated from her kingdom that is apparently called CORONA! I’m not even kidding! She definitely knows a thing or two about how to effectively stay occupied at home:
She has a mixture of chores, hobbies and self care to keep her busy including joyful singing, dancing and chattering with those within her home, aka Pascal and Mother Gothel, all the while wondering when her life will begin. It all starts with “7am, the usual morning lineup, start on the chores”…..
- Polish and Wax
- Do Laundry
- Mop and Shine Up
- Sweep Again
- Read a Book (or maybe two or three)
- Play Guitar
- Paper Mache
- Candle Making
- Take a Climb
- Sew a Dress
- Re-Read Books
- Paint more Walls
- Brush and Brush My Hair
- Sing and Dance
- Talk with the People we Love
- And of course….Wonder when will my life begin?
That’s quite the list of things to do! Lots of ideas to keep us busy and joyful during this extended time at home while we look forward to when this is all over and we can be as free as Rapunzel in the woods!
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. ” Philippians 4:8.
