Why Alyson Hannigan’s Daughters Might Miss Her Sofia the First Role

11/24/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

Alyson Hannigan has always been drawn to animation, but it was her Buffy the Vampire Slayer director, Joss Whedon, who put the connection best.

“I think Joss put it perfectly when he said, ‘I feel like if we opened you up, a cartoon would just pop out,’ ” Hannigan tells PEOPLE. “I think that’s the most fitting description of me.”

Now the former How I Met Your Mother star is meeting her ‘toon destiny with a guest-voice role on Disney Channel’s Sofia the First in a new episode premiering Dec. 12 at 9 a.m.

Hannigan plays Winter, a gentle faun who yearns for a special ability — only to realize she was special all along. (Awwwwww.)

Alyson Hannigan is one hoppy mama!

After bath time recently, the former How I Met Your Mother star thought a snapshot of her girls showing off their cozy Froggy Bath Robes ($30) from Land of Nod would make for a fun photo op.

And while the actress’s eldest daughter Satyana Marie, 5, flashed a sweet smile, 2-year-old Keeva Jane got playful with her pose.

“This is what happened when I asked my 2yr old to give me an over-the-shoulder,” Hannigan, 40, Tweeted with the hashtag #momarazzi.

But, according to the proud mama, Keeva is all about keeping her parents, including dad Alexis Denisof, on their toes.

In a Tweet posted on her little girl’s birthday, Hannigan jokes, “Happy 2nd birthday to my little Keeva Jane!!! She struts like George Jefferson and tells people she’s 6.”

With two children and a role on a hit TV show, How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan certainly has a full plate these days.

Thankfully, her 18-month-old daughter Keeva Jane is willing to carry the load — literally.

“She’s sort of a perfectionist,” Hannigan told PEOPLE at The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment Breakfast on Wednesday.

“The other day, the three of us were going outside after a snack, and I said, ‘Where’s Keeva?’ I went back and she was taking her plate from her little table and trying to put it on the counter, which she couldn’t reach!”

How Alyson Hannigan finally met her match? By welcoming a second child!

The actress thought she had her hands full with Satyana, 4½ — until she and husband Alexis Denisof welcomed daughter Keeva Jane, now 16 months old.

“I thought one was really difficult and now I am like, ‘What? One was super easy!'” the How I Met Your Mother star, 39, tells PEOPLE. “You got breaks while they were napping — [Satyana] had just started school — but now they are tag teaming me … in the very best way of course.”

Fortunately, Hannigan has found the perfect parenting partner in Denisof. “Alexis is an amazing father, he really is, we’re a really good team,” she says. “I am definitely a better lunch maker. I am a better baker, but he is definitely better at dinners.”

Does Alyson Hannigan have a future astronaut in her family?

Well, it looks like daughters Satyana, 4, and Keeva, 1, will get some space travel pre-training thanks to the mini shuttle their actress mom bought recently.

The How I Met Your Mother star, here on June 6, picked up the inflatable toy while shopping at the Brentwood Country Mart.

Perfect for the pool or backyard, Aeromax’s Jr. Space Explorer ($35) features a lifelike dashboard and comfy seat for hours of imaginative play.

And if you want to take the galactic theme even further, the company also sells cool clothing and gear.

Thankfully, there isn’t any “sibling rivalry” in the Hannigan-Denisof household. Who knows, Satyana and Keeva may even become the first sisters to explore the galaxy together.
