Long ago, in the far away land of ancient Greece… If you recognize these words you are in for the virtual trip of a lifetime! During today’s Adventure at Home we are going to explore the land of powerful gods and extraordinary heroes, so get ready to say “OPA!” as we celebrate the magic of Greece with Adventures by Disney.
1. Did Someone Say Toga Party?
A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the accessories on his toga. You and your family can celebrate Greece with this historical attire that is easy to recreate at home. All you need is some bedsheets (preferably in a neutral color) and safety pins. If you want to go the distance, you can accessorize with fake gold chains (or real, no one is judging), jewelry, or amulets. A pair of sandals will complete the look.
2. Like Painting a Masterpiece, it’s a Work of Heart!
Time to call the Muses, legendary goddesses of the arts. Today’s family game is going to put your artistic abilities to the test as you draw items inspired by our Greece itinerary while your family guesses. Just print this game guide and get ready to play Adventures by Disney – Draw it! Greece Edition.
3. Isn’t it Sweet? (Our Favorite Flavor!)
Our Greece itinerary features LOTS of culinary highlights but there is a flakey slice of cheesy magic that stands out. In the beautiful island of Crete, Adventurers learn to prepare a traditional pastry made with cheese, honey and filo dough, the Cretan Cheese Pie. Download the recipe here.
4. I Have Often Dreamed of a Far-Off Place
You’ll be the envy of friends, coworkers, classmates and family when you use these virtual backgrounds for your next video conference.
The first backdrop gives you a bird’s eye view of the breathtaking island of Santorini, where whitewashed villages envelop cliffs that tower above an underwater caldera.
Our second backdrop features the famous Acropolis, a testimony to the greatness of ancient Greece. Located on a flat rock overlooking Athens, this citadel is home to some of Greece’s most famous monuments, including the Parthenon. Right click on each image above to save the virtual backdrops.
