The incredibly popular new animated feature Mr. Peabody & Sherman is available today on Blu-ray and DVD, and 20th Century Fox is in the mood to celebrate! So what’s the best way to enjoy the release of this fun-filled movie with your kids? With some Mr. Peabody & Sherman activity sheets of course!
When I was a child, I absolutely loved to colour. I come from a family of artists but that talent definitely skipped me; I can draw passable little cartoons and not much else. But colouring was something that I could do and I would sometimes spend hours working on a picture to make sure that it was just right.
So when I received a Doodle Art poster one year at Christmas, I was delighted. The huge black and white sheet was filled with detail and came with a set of markers. I spent hours colouring in the tiny sections of the poster to create a masterpiece for my room. Now, Doodle Art is back and recently I received a full-sized Doodle Art kit from PlaSmart Inc. to review. I was so excited to share this classic from my own childhood with my boys!
At almost four years old, Benjamin is still a little young for the detailed colouring a Doodle Art poster requires, so I saved this kit especially for Zackary. He was so excited by the size of the poster and the set of double-tipped markers that came with it. One of the great things about the Doodle Art markers is that they have both a fine tip for the tiny details of the poster and a wide tip for filling in larger areas. [Read more…]
While technology has made things like travelling with kids and waiting for appointments a lot easier for most parents, I can’t help but feel like it’s also robbed children of a lot of their inherent creativity. I have to admit that giving my son his Leapster Explorer or letting him play a game on our tablet is pretty much the most effective way to ensure that he waits patiently and doesn’t get frustrated by long car rides. But I don’t want him to be dependant on electronics to entertain him all the time.
Fortunately, that’s where Doodle Roll comes in. This ingenious little case comes in two sizes and contains crayons and a roll of paper that can be pulled out to the desired length for some creative colouring fun! With a design that made it easily portable and a price of less than five dollars, it looked like the perfect way to make car rides and long waits both fun and imaginative. [Read more…]
