Free Printables for Pete’s Dragon

Petes Dragon Closeup

I just saw Disney’s new Pete’s Dragon movie, and my favorite part of the film had to be the gorgeous scenery. We just returned from a 3-week family road trip up the Pacific Coast, and the lush forrest in Pete’s Dragon made me feel like we were back there.

The new Pete’s Dragon is a fun re-imagining of the classic dragon tail. It’s quite a different storyline than the semi-animated Pete’s Dragon you probably remember from your childhood, but it’s far more epic. I love the inclusion of a friendly park ranger, and Robert Redford’s character was so engaging, but then I’ve had a crush on him since I was a teenager.

There are some intense parts, and the opening scene actually had me in tears. I think it’s on par with Maleficent, and I recommend reading the review over on Parent Previews if you want a more detailed play by play of the movie.

Inside Out Free Printables + Movie Review

Inside Out Party Ideas 7

Last week my girls and I saw an advanced screening of Disney/Pixar’s new Inside Out. We all loved the movie, and it’s really saying something when both my 4 year old and me enjoy a show so much we can’t wait to see it again. Afterwards, my girls and I brainstormed Inside Out party ideas and crafts over ice cream. Our favorite idea was this “Jar of Joy.”

Is Tomorrowland Too Scary for Kids?

Tomorrowland Movie Review For Parents

We have been pretty excited to see Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson, which opens in theaters today. Created by Disney and rated PG, this may look like a perfect film for a family movie night, but before you head out to the theater with your crew, here’s what you should know.

A Parent's Take on Disney's New Tomorrowland Movie

Review of Disney's Tomorrowland Movie from a Parent's point of view

We first saw a trailer for Tomorrowland when we took our family to see Disney’s new Cinderella movie in March. In that glimpse, Tomorrowland looked like a fun, family movie; however, we recently saw a few more intense trailers (particularly the one below) that left us wondering for what ages the movie is appropriate. Happily we were invited to an early screening of the show, and we paid careful attention to figure out which of our kids we should take to see it.

Free Tangled Party Printables

Tangledbirthdaypartypinablemashup

Ever since we posted about Attalie’s Rapunzel Birthday Party last year, we’ve been caught up in a bit of a Tangled whirlwind. When I was planning the party in December 2010, the movie was brand new and there weren’t a lot of ideas out there. So Aimée and I let our brainstorm run wild and the resulting party was loads of fun and landed us on the Martha Stewart show!

HowToHostATangledBirthdayParty

Equally fun has been sharing it with all of you and re-living the excitement as many of our readers have hosted their own Rapunzel Birthday Parties. Of course our inboxes have also filled up with lots of questions:

“How did you make that Tangled Birthday Cake?” and “Was it hard?”
“Got any other easy Rapunzel Birthday Cake ideas?”
“Do you have any printable Rapunzel cupcake toppers?”
“Where can I find a Rapunzel Crown template?”

And this one, asked more times than we can count, really got us thinking… “Do you know how I can customize that Rapunzel Birthday Party Invitation with my party details?”

So today, I am very excited to unveil a TOP SECRET project that was months in the making. We’ve heard the cries for help, and Aimée and I think we have the answer. Well two answers actually. (Be sure to scroll to the end of this post for the really BIG news.) First up is our NEW! Rapunzel Printable Party Pack and a few freebies.

We’ve created all the printables we think anyone would ever need to host their own Rapunzel Birthday Party (yes, even a printable Rapunzel Crown), and we’re giving a few of them away FREE! Feast your eyes…
