Walking With Dinosaurs - Movie Night MixMonday, March 31, 2014
Sometimes, you just have to bend the rules and watch a movie on a weeknight. And if you decide to bend the rule, you've gotta make it fun, right?
We were super excited to get a copy of Walking With Dinosaurs, The Movie to review. We missed this when it was in theaters, so it was all brand new to us. The movie tells the story of Patchi, who may be small in size, but finds his inner courage along a big adventure!
Watching Patchi grow up, it was easy for us to fall in love. I think every child could relate to his struggle, but his resilient and quick thinking attitude make him the perfect children's hero.
I loved that the movie introduced us to dinosaurs we were not familiar with, like the Pachyrhinosaurus. As an added bonus, the DVD+Blu Ray+Digital Copy has "The Ultimate Dino Guide" where you can learn more about the dinosaurs and an Interactive Map, so you can see where they roamed the Earth!
While we watched Patchi's journey unfold, we munched on a Movie Night Mix. Before I went into work, I just grabbed a bag of already popped popcorn, bugles (that also double as dinosaur nails) and a bag of chocolate flavored chex mix from the store. I added some m&m's we had in our candy jar and tossed together in a bowl, seconds before hitting play! It was an addicting snack and the kids thought it was the greatest creation ever!
Walking With Dinosaurs, The Movie is in stores now, and we definitely recommend as a birthday gift or an addition to the Easter Basket!
