Goldenberry Pancakes & Magical Amulet Craft

If your kids have ever watched the Disney show Sofia the First, you probably know all about Princess Sofia, Princess Amber and Prince James. This royal sibling trio go on many adventures and get into lots of mischief with their bunny pal Clover and other animal friends. One episode of Sofia the First specifically stood out in my daughter’s mind when we made “breakfast for dinner” the other day. My 4-year-old requested Sofia the First Goldenberry Pancakes, which Princess Sofia makes to celebrate her adopted twin siblings Amber and James’ birthday. Of course to properly enjoy Goldenberry Pancakes, she had to dress up as Princess Sofia and make her own magical amulet.

Sofia the First Homemade Amulet Craft

Our DIY Princess Sofia magical amulet was easy to make with a piece of cardboard, discarded clothing tag, and some glittery paper and trim. I have lots of random craft supplies sitting around, which is perfect for spontaneous kids’ crafts like this!

Sofia the First Magical Amulet Craft


  • Oval piece of cardboard
  • Clothing tag
  • Length of elastic
  • Glittery purple scrapbook paper or card stock
  • Jeweled trim, rhinestones, or purple beads

Instructions: Glue all your materials together using hot glue. I glued the clothing tag onto the cardboard oval to create a homemade pendant, and covered all the cardboard with glittery purple paper. Attach the elastic and glue on the rhinestone trim to create a perfect DIY Sofia the First amulet necklace!

Delicious Goldenberry Pancakes

Stack your pancakes high and load on the berries! I made homemade strawberry syrup with 1/2 cup water, a spoonful of sugar, and chopped frozen strawberries. Simmer your strawberry sauce over medium heat until it thickens.
