Swift is available on DVD and Blu-ray today — and to celebrate here are some printable activity sheets that your kids are sure to love!
As you might already know, my whole family is into movies. We love to sit down and escape for a couple of hours together. We have a movie theater room set up on our third floor where my daughters LOVE to watch movies together. So when SHOUT! Factory Kids sent us a copy of Swift, they could not wait to watch it there.
Our Review of Swift
Now let me start by telling you my children have become extremely critical. Perhaps it is because of what I do for a living. As soon as they finish a movie, they rate it — 5 stars being the best. However, their reasoning almost never makes any sense.
My oldest gave Swift “infinity stars” — so clearly she just ignored the rating process. Her reasoning? The story was great, and made her think about how she can always be true to herself. She said that Manou is the cutest, and she hopes they make toys of him.
My youngest? While she gave is zero stars. But why? Because it made her cry. She was scared for them when they flew into a storm. She said that was reckless (yes she used that word) of them. Also, the rats were mean and creepy. So in other words, she really REALLY liked it. She related to the characters and felt they were in danger at one point.
The moral of this whole thing? Swift is clearly a great movie for kids. Something they will find entertaining, and they might even learn something from it. Also, a 7 and 8 year old don’t make the best critics. At least not when it comes to a rating system.
Swift Activity Sheets
I have always loved printable activity sheets that are themed to movies. It gives my girls something to do while watching the movie, or right after when they are really excited about it! But I especially do now with them being stuck inside for the time being. I am printing all the things, so I was thrilled that Swift has some fun activity sheets to print (and so were my daughters!).
I really hope you print these activity sheets out and that you and your family enjoy them! Looking for more kid’s printables? I have you covered!
Take flight with this wonderfully uplifting, family friendly journey about standing up for what you believe and finding your place in the world! Meet Manou, a sweet bird who grows up believing he is a seagull like his parents. To his great shock, Manou discovers that he was adopted, and is actually the offspring of the much-hated swifts!
One night, Manou fails to guard the eggs and loses one to the rats. The seagulls are outraged and Manou is expelled from his home! Utterly defeated, he retreats and discovers the “Swift Way.” But when those same nefarious rats hijack some swift eggs, and a terrible storm threatens his seagull friends, Manou is committed to save them all – courageous like a seagull and inventive like a swift!
Swift is now available on AppleTV, Amazon, and other digital platforms — as well as Blu-ray and DVD!
