Happy Earth Day everyone! I hope you find great way s to celebrate today. I plan to take my daughters outside and spend some time with them enjoying the environment – and cleaning up our local park. In case you are looking for some fun ideas, I want to share with you some activities from Dreamworks Animation!
As most of you know, Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out this week. My husband and I are huge Star Wars fans and we saw the movie in theaters. It was so good! We also have it on Blu-Ray and have watched it with our daughters – and our 4 year old loves it! She is a huge fan of Rey – who I think is a great role model for young girls like her. To help celebrate the release, I wanted to share some fun activities with you. There are tons of awesome coloring pages that your little ones (and you!) are sure to love! Download them below for hours of fun – and then check out a bonus clip featuring Poe and a couple about BB-8!
I am really looking forward to Finding Dory! This film looks amazing – and since it is Disney/Pixar, you just know it is going to be great! I loved Finding Nemo (in fact, I saw it in theaters) and I cannot wait to take my girls to see this! Finding Dory comes out a week before my daughter’s 5th birthday so we plan to take all her school friends to go see it for her party! It will be a great kick off to the summer too! One of my daughters’ favorite things to do is color and so I was thrilled to discover these brand new Finding Dory coloring and activity sheets! Download them below and print them for your little ones – I promise, they will love them!
To celebrate the Digital HD release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens I have some special crafts and recipes to share with you! Click on the BB-8 button below for Rey’s Portion Bread recipe, a BB-8 Bookmark, and more! I am also sharing some pretty great clips from the bonus features of The Force Awakens that focus on Rey and Finn! I cannot wait to sit down and watch this movie for the second time this weekend. I know there are lots of things that I did not pick up on. Have you seen it yet? If not, stream it this weekend, you will not regret it!
Check out the Pinterest board I put together above that is full of nerdy Easter Egg ideas! If you know anything about me, then you know I am a super geek. Now that I’ve hopefully inspired everyone with these nerdy Easter egg ideas, I’m ready for all of you to show me what you’ve got. This contest is like cosplay for eggs. I have teamed up with The Fairytale Traveler and we want to see your nerdy egg creations! Feel free to let your imagination run wild and get as creative as you can. We’ve partnered up with some of the nerdiest bloggers on the world wide web to make this uber fun.
I love The Jungle Book. I grew up watching it and have loved sharing it with my girls as well. Since I found out about the new one, I have been waiting patiently for it! It comes out right before my birthday (April 15, 2016) and I cannot wait to check it out! The footage that I saw at the D23 Expo this past summer was incredible – and I know it is going to blow everyone away! The voice cast is amazing with actors like Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, and Christopher Walken. Having them voice some of my favorite characters of all time is, well, pretty awesome! My daughters were thrilled when I printed out these new The Jungle Book activity sheets for them (download and print yours below) – we had so much fun with the maze and of course, making the Hexaflexagon! That is one of their favorite activities to do when it comes to Disney movies! Enjoy!
It is the last day of the year guys – wow, did 2015 fly by or what? There were so many amazing movie and guess what? Plenty more amazing ones are coming out in 2016! One of those is Zootopia – and I want you to celebrate Zoo Year’s Eve tonight with the brand new trailer for ZOOTOPIA featuring the all-new original song “Try Everything,” written by singer-songwriter Sia and songwriting duo Stargate, and performed by Grammy-winning international superstar Shakira. It is incredible and the single will be available everywhere 1/8/16. Revered worldwide by herds of fans, Shakira voices Zootopia’s biggest pop star Gazelle who is a socially conscious celebrity with equal parts talent and heart. I for one, cannot wait to see her in this movie, she is going to be great!
Since the moment I heard about Zootopia, I knew it was a movie that I would be taking my daughters to see. I was lucky enough to get the inside scoop and see some great clips (like the Sloth clip you can check out in the preview below) before others when I attended the D23 Expo and that just solidified my thoughts. When I took my daughters to go see a movie in the theater recently, there was a preview for Zootopia and after seeing that on the big screen, it has been all they will talk about. They cannot wait to go, and I promised them, when it comes out in early March 2016, we will be there. I personally cannot wait to go myself – I just know it will be a hit!
My husband is an engineer by trade so he is really big in to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning. He thinks that these are all very important things for kids to start learning early on, and I have to agree with him. We are always doing little experiments with our young daughters and will continue to do so as they get older. They tend to really take to these types of projects when they involve characters that they already know and love – like the cast of Frozen. So of course we just had to get the Disney Imagicademy Frozen Science Activity Book from Wonder Forge for them. Now, this does state it is before for kids ages 4 and up, and I tend to agree. Although my 3 year old can do some of the things herself, and loves to help out best she can with others!
You all know how much I love Star Wars. I am so excited about this new movie (and the coloring and activity sheets I just received) that I had to log on here and share them with you on the eve of my move. Yup, tomorrow I head to a new home (just 20 minutes away) and the entire house is packed up – but I just had to make sure you guys got these amazing sheets ASAP. My husband and I have had our tickets to see The Force Awakens for quite some time now. Since Fandango broke the internet during Monday Night Football to be exact. We have been waiting for this movie for longer than I can seem to remember. I just know it is going to be amazing. If you are one of those people that has never seen a Star Wars (shame!), get yourself caught up now before the new one comes out. You have exactly 2 weeks – EEK! – and you will thank me!
