My Little Pony Activities

*For more movie/TV show-themed fun check out my website:

My girls are My Little Pony addicts.  If I let them they would watch it all day every day.  I thought I would surprise them.  While they took a nap I set up a couple of My Little Pony themed activities they could do together.

In Ponyville we have Fluttershy with the creatures.

Here is Twilight Sparkle's reading nook.

And here are the makings for throwing a tea party with Pinkie Pie and Apple Jack.

Off to Canterlot to spend time in the castle with Princess Celestia and Princess Luna.

My kids love having puppet shows in the castle with their movable mouth puppets.  Princess helped me make it a little while ago.  We love making things with cardboard boxes.  (Check out our Where's Waldo Cardboard Box Tunnel.)

Finally, they could choose to ride on the wheeled pony or...

The hobby horses I made for them.  This is Rainbow Dash.

And this one is Twilight Sparkle.  Get the directions to make your own Hobby Horses from Pool Noodles here.

Here are the new "ponies" just waiting for the girls to find them when they wake up.

Look at Princess' face when she saw the new ponies.

She was super excited.

New ponies!

Goofy showing me Rainbow Dash.

Time to try them out.

She loves these ponies.

Off to try the new pony.

So much fun!

Trying out the different activities.  Princess really loved reading with Twilight Sparkle.

Goofy visited the castle.

Time for a tea party.

Plates for everyone.

After some play time we watched a couple episodes of My Little Pony together.

Such a fun day!  What do you like to do with your kids?  What can you make with a pool noodle?

  1. Will you please just come be mom here? You are so cool Kristin!! My kids would think I was awesome if I did this....time to buy some pool noodles!

    1. You are so sweet Addie. Those ponies were so easy to make-took about an hour (and only because Rainbow Dash's mane was tricky). If you do end up making them show me a pic! By the way, I was browsing your blog yesterday and I love it! You are full of such great ideas and you have such a cute little family.

  2. Hi! I'm writing an article for and I was hoping to use your ponies in it. Do you mind if I use your image and link to your site?
    let me know.

    1. Hi Kelly. Yes, go right ahead and use whatever picture you need. Thanks for thinking of me!

  3. can you tell me how you made the noodle ponies?

    1. The pool noodles pony directions can be found here: I chose to use styrofoam balls and black felt for the eyes though. Hope that helps.

  4. Oh, wow! My 7 year old Little Pony fan would FLIP for these! Wish I'd seen this before her Pony party in February, lol!

    1. All three of my kids love MLP. The great thing is, you can do these anytime! ;)
