What is Sunday Funday?
Sunday Funday is centered around family/children's movies. Every week we draw a movie name from the "magic envelope" and that determines what the next movie will be- it works well this way because the kids feel like they have some control, and I'm not psychotically planning movies months in advance (yet a week is still plenty of time for me to plan). Every Sunday Funday consists of a movie-themed craft, activity, and meal.
Sam managed to delete the majority of my posts. I don't know that I am doing it again...
This week was Wall-E...a little hard because I've never actually seen it, and from what I understand, there isn't a whole lot going on in the movie! Luckily the kids really loved this one. (Must apologize for the pics, our camera is being fixed so it's cell phone pics for awhile!) Attention rating of 4 out of 5 stars, they really liked it which surprised me because it didn't seem all that exciting.
Our robot craft- basically just a bunch of different shapes glued together!
Up next (except not really because a big fight broke out last week and each kid drew one, so next week is Winnie the Pooh, then we'll do this the week after).
Playing "Find the Plant". This was a HUGE hit! I drew a picture of a plant and hid it somewhere. Then I drew 5 clues- drawings of places in the house- and the kids followed them around to find the plant. Great for kids who can't yet read!
Finally, our meal. Earth dirt dessert was chocolate pudding, microchips with grease were fries with ketchup, Wall-E's walleye was fish sticks, and go Green! Beans are self explanatory except we were out of beans so we had peas. ;) Oh, and motor oil was chocolate milk.
The Cat in the Hat
Not too hard this week, though I did fudge a little and use some things from other Dr. Seuss books! I'd give this movie an attention rating of 3 out of 5...K watched most of it, S wandered off halfway through.
Next up- Wall-E! Ooh, I haven't seen it.
Our craft was making a "fish in a pot", but K has seen this movie before and insisted the fish ends up in the toilet and she wanted to make a fish in the toilet. So, we did.
Our game was "rhyme time" where we threw the ball back and forth at each other. She'd call out a word and I'd say a rhyming word (sometimes she would rhyme too, other times she couldn't think of one- that's ok, she's still learning when I do the rhymes!).
The food. We had pink ink yink drink (strawberry milk), One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Tuna Fish, Fish in a Pot (goldfish), Sally's Soup, and Thing 1 and Thing 2's Dessert Hullaballoo (red jello layered with whipped cream).
