ABOUT THE MOVIE: Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” welcomes back to the big screen everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), who’s living happily in the reef with Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks) and Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence). When Dory suddenly remembers that she has a family out there who may be looking for her, the trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s prestigious Marine Life Institute, a rehabilitation center and aquarium. In an effort to find her mom (voice of Diane Keaton) and dad (voice of Eugene Levy), Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank (voice of Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey (voice of Ty Burrell), a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny (voice of Kaitlin Olson), a nearsighted whale shark. Deftly navigating the complex inner workings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships and family.

“The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.

Young children will be able to relate to Arlo.  Arlo has been afraid of everything since he was born.  He has two siblings, Libby and Buck.  He was the runt of the three.  Libby and Buck are successful on the farm, but Arlo’s timid nature causes him to have trouble adjusting to farm life.

Henry, Arlo’s father, tries to build up Arlo’s courage and gives him a task to help boost his confidence and self-esteem.  He puts him in charge of guarding their silo.  He helps Arlo set a trap.  It catches a cave boy, but Arlo doesn’t have the heart to kill him. Instead he sets him free.  Henry is disappointed in Arlo.  He decides to take Arlo with him to catch the cave boy.

During their journey, Arlo and Henry get caught in a flash flood.  Henry saves his son, but he is swept away and dies.  After his father dies, Arlo finds alone.  He becomes more responsible on the family farm.  One day he spots the cave boy in the silo.  He chases the cave boy, and they both fall into the river.  This time Arlo is swept far away from his home.  He must find the courage to face his fears and find his way home.

Preschool Garden Vegetable Printables

I found these adorable garden vegetables printables for kids at www.vegetable-gardening-online.com.  So, I thought I would share them with my readers. They’re a fun way to to expose children to gardening.  Furthermore, you can discuss the importance of vegetables in our diet. It’s also a great way to start a conversation about planting a small vegetable garden.  Furthermore, they can become familiar with growing their own food. Getting children involved in gardening teaches them to nurture and to become self-sufficient. Children should learn to be responsible at an early age.  Responsibility will become a life lesson.  Check out my other backyard vegetable gardening posts.

Try planting kaleidoscope carrots to peak your child’s interest.  Orange can be boring so add a little color. Plant kaleidoscope carrots that are yellow, purple, orange, red and sometimes white. Popcorn is a favorite on movie night. Try planting some colored popcorn. Husk the corn after it has dried and store for movie night. Tomatoes come in different colors too. I plant red, yellow, orange and purple tomatoes. Get creative and make it a family event. Children often like what you like.
Also, allow your children to explore seed catalogues.  They can check out different varieties of plant and flowers. For example, sunflower are big deal at my house. We plant Russian Mammoth, Lemon Queen, and Autumn beauty for a colorful summer display. The Mexican Sunflower is small and could be a variable option for children. Don’t leave pumpkins off you list.  Remember they do require lots of space though.
I plan to let my 4 year old granddaughter color these vegetable printables.   Grab a box of crayons and print these tomato, green beans, carrot and corn printables, and let your kids go to work too.
Stay tuned for our April Showers posts this month.  We’ll be sharing more activities for kids, craft roundups and other ideas for those rainy days.  You can download the vegetable printables here:
