New Disney Star Darlings Book Series Encourages Tweens To Wish Upon A Star! Star Themed Recipes, & Crafts
With a New Year comes new goals and wishes. I have set my sights high this year and I’ve encouraged my kids to do the same! We had a wonderful idea to discuss what we would each wish for if given the chance to cast just one wish. We were inspired by the new Disney Star Darlings book series which is all about the power of wishes! Now I’m happy to share with you some of our favorite star themed recipes and crafts that we did together to celebrate a New Year and new wishes! Of course I have to tell you about our favorite new book series from Disney too! If you have a tween girl then she’ll definitely want to check it out!
Just like real girls, each Star Darling has her own wish that she pursues with full force and determination—and the help of her friends. These shared journeys and experiences provide exceptionally positive examples to inspire tweens to follow their dreams, and are experienced through books, dolls, music and apparel, along with a mobile app and animated shorts. Disney “Star Darlings” offers an innovative and unparalleled lifestyle experience that encourages tweens to harness the power of their individuality, highlights the power of making positive choices, and shows that they can make anything possible.
As far back as anyone can remember, Starlings who have completed special training, have granted wishes for Earthlings. But a major crisis is afoot and soon twelve unique girls from the prestigious Starling Academy are chosen to be the first student Starlings to venture to Earth. Rich with themes of friendship, confidence, leadership, and teamwork, the Star Darlings as they are known, go on the most magical adventures of their lives. Determined to succeed in spite of their youthful inexperience, the girls show courage and ingenuity—plus a whole lot of humor—as they guide Wishers to discover happiness and fulfillment.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love to take a theme and run with it. We had an entire star themed day complete with reading Star Darlings, making star shaped recipes and working together on star shaped crafts! Not feeling overly energetic? Grab one of these recipes or crafts and pair it with a Star Darlings book (Danika is reading Star Darlings Libby and the Class Election) and create a fun afternoon of bonding time with your daughter!

You can find the Disney Star Darlings books on Amazon or visit the Disney site for more information and places to buy! You can also download free Star Darlings coloring pages, activities and more here!
If you could grant a wish to anyone, who would it be for and what would it be? Which book would your child like to read first?
I have not heard of these books before!!! I love that Disney has found ways to keep tweens loving them and reading at the same time!! These are all cute crafts too to go with the books!
That star in the cupcake is super awesome. I want to do that! What a great list!
My daughter would love to read Star Darlings Cassie Comes Through first. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.
I think Star Darlings A Wisher’s Guide to Starland would be read first. it sounds like it should be the one read first. These series looks cute i hope its good!
I think she would want to read Star Darlings Scarlet Discovers True Strength first!
This would be perfect for my niece I think she would read A Wisher’s Guide to Starland first.

I think she would read the story Star Darlings Libby and the Class Election first.

We only just discovered this series before Christmas. I picked up the first two at Target (only ones I could find or I would have grabbed them all!), and my daughters have been loving them! ?
My daughter’s only one but she loves listening to us reading the older books to her. She’s a fan of Leona. So I’m sure she can’t wait to hear the adventure Leona will experience! And my son’s also pretty interested in the books… He loves to read and loves watching Star Darlings with his sister! (Scarlet is his favorite!)
I really like that star shaped soft pretzels! I must try that recipe!
