Math Dominos #GiftedMath

Gifted is being released on Blu-ray today!. To get everyone ready, I will be sharing some fun math activity sheets  all week long!   You can find math everywhere! Dominoes are a classic game that proves math can be fun. Practice addition, subtraction, and/or multiplication with this DIY twist on a classic.


What you will need:
  • Popsicle sticks 
  • Sharpie marker 
  • Circle sticker (think garage sale sticker in red and white)  I could not find the plain ones, so I used other stickers.

How to Play:
  1. Write math problems on the red circle stickers and answers on the white circle stickers.
  2. Stick the stickers on each end of the popsicle sticks. Be sure that the questions and answers do not match on the same stick.
  3. Time to play! Connect questions with their answers. 
You can access more info on this sheet here

Purchase Gifted on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD for $19.99 & FREE Shipping on orders over $25.

Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man dedicated to raising his spirited young niece, Mary (Mckenna Grace), a child prodigy. But Frank and Mary’s happy life together is threatened when Mary’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of her overbearing grandmother (Lindsay Duncan) – who has other plans for the girl. You’ll love every moment of this “deeply satisfying” (Edward Douglas, Film Journal International) film, also starring Jenny Slate and OSCAR® Winner Octavia Spencer*.

LEGO Scooby-Doo!: Blowout Beach Bash is out today!

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
Scooby and the gang are back to solve a brand new supernatural crime mystery in LEGO® Scooby-Doo!: Blowout Beach Bash and it is out today on Blu-rayTM Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD.   Purchase LEGO® Scooby-Doo!: Blowout Beach Bash!  on Amazon for $12.96 & FREE Shipping on orders over $25.

Scooby-Doo! and his pals Fred, Daphne, Velma and Shaggy are no strangers to solving spooky mysteries filled with all types of ghouls and goblins. This time is no different. As Scooby-Doo! and his friends are on their way to Blowout Beach for a real swinging beach party in the Mystery Machine, the Ghost Pirates threaten to ruin the gang’s good vibes. It is up to Scooby and the gang to get the party back on track, without missing a beat. This all-new original movie LEGO® Scooby-Doo!: Blowout Beach Bash will be available on DVD, Blu-Ray combo pack and digital HD for the first time ever for kids to enjoy.
LEGO® Scooby-Doo!: Blowout Beach Bash! features a veteran voice cast: Frank Welker (Be Cool Scooby-Doo!), Grey Griffin (Be Cool Scooby-Doo!), Kate Micucci (Be Cool Scooby-Doo!) and Matthew Lillard (Be Cool Scooby-Doo!) .  The film was executive produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!), Jill Wilfert (The LEGO® Batman Movie), Robert Fewkes (LEGO® DC Super Hero Girls), Jason Cosler (LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes: Gotham City Breakout) and directed by Ethan Spaulding (Justice League: Throne of Atlantis) from a script written by Emily Brundige (Teen Titans Go!) and Aaron Preacher (Comedy Bang Bang).  Rick Morales (LEGO® Scooby-Doo!: Haunted Hollywood) serves as producer.

My son is a Scooby fanatic and equally loves LEGOs, so this was the perfect movie for him! When Fred and Velma are accused of not knowing how to have fun, the gang sets out to have some fun at the Blowout Beach Bash and leave the monster chasing behind for a while.  Fred and Velma have their eyes set to be the king and the queen of fun at the bash, but soon a mystery arises and hijinks ensue!  

I watched this film with my son and it was super cute graphics and a fun story line.   A perfect movie for Scooby fans!

Emoji Inspired Pancakes! #EmojiMovie #Recipe

The Emoji Movie hits theaters on July 28th!   Why not get fun in the kitchen and make these Emoji Movie inspired pancake for breakfast!

 
Emoji Pancakes
Ingredients

  • Krusteaz Pancake Mix and water or your favorite pancake mix

    Instructions:
    1. Make the pancakes according to the pancake box.
       
    2. To make the round emojis, just make round pancakes on your pan
    3. Melt chocolate chips to adhere eyes on Emoji.

    4.  Once pancakes are cooked then use a toothpick to put chocolate on the back of the candy eyes and secure to the pancake.  Use same toothpick to draw on the face in chocolate!
       
    5.  The Poop emoji was a tad bit harder.  I ended up putting the pancake mix into a plastic baggie.  Snipped off the end and then squeezed and poop design into the pan.   After if cooked a bit, I then spooned more pancake mix onto the poop design to fill in any open areas.

The Ultimate Family Movie Night with The Boss Baby! #BossBabyMovieNight #BossBabyHE

DreamWorks Animation invites you to meet a most unusual baby when  THE BOSS BABYthe “wildly funny” adventure comedy of the year arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on July 25. Seven-year-old Tim Templeton suddenly finds his share of parental love plummeting when his new baby brother (Alec Baldwin) arrives — wearing a suit and toting a briefcase — and makes it clear to everyone that he’s in charge. But when Tim discovers that Boss Baby is on a secret mission, he reluctantly agrees to team up with his pint sized sibling for an epic adventure that might just change the world!

From the director of the hugely successful Madagascar franchise, Tom McGrath, comes a hilarious adventure-comedy about family and belonging. In addition to Alec Baldwin, THE BOSS BABY features the voice talents of a stellar cast including Steve BuscemiJimmy KimmelLisa Kudrow, Miles Bakshi and Tobey Maguire.


From cookies to note taking, when you host an ultimate family movie night, make sure everything is to the Boss' standards of excellence.  

When hosting a Boss Baby Movie night, cookies are must!  This past weekend we hosted a movie night with some of my daughter's friends.   We had a two night sleepover and moviefest!   From making cookies, making pizzas, ice cream sundae bar and a great movie, we had an amazing weekend!

Want to have pizza, but everyone wants their own toppings?   This weekend we used the mini Stonefire Naan breads (4 in a pack) to let the kids create their own pizzas for movie night!   Just add sauce, favorite toppings and cook for about 15 minutes or until cheese is all bubbly!


Ice cream sundae bar is a must with a house full of girls!
But when it comes to the movie, all eyes are on the screen for this hilarious movie.  I knew it was a huge hit in the theater, but I never expected it to be that funny and such a cute film.  The creativity and the imagination that went into this film is top notch.  I loved watching 7 year old Tim use his imagination and take everyday situations and make them epic adventures.   But most of all I loved watching these two brothers bond.  Tim originally thinks he will be fine as an only child and will go along with Boss Baby to get what he wants...but soon he realizes what he want has changed and family is everything!

This is not just a kid film, the entire family enjoyed it on iTunes and we can not wait for the DVD/Blu-release this week!

THE BOSS BABY SPECIAL EDITION comes loaded with bonus features including the NEW Mini Adventure, a 3-minute action-packed journey through time featuring Boss Baby and Tim. Join the fun as Boss Baby and Tim battle pirates, travel through outer space, swim deep into the sea, and go toe-to-toe with some ferocious dinosaurs! Additional bonus materials include featurettes like “Cookies are for Closers: Inside BabyCorp,”   Deleted Scenes and more!

THE BOSS BABY Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, 4K Ultra HD, DVD and Digital HD each include more than 30 minutes of extras:
  • NEW Mini Adventure: The Boss Baby and Tim’s Treasure Hunt Through Time ­– Narrated by Wizzie, the magical wizard, join Boss Baby and Tim on their adventure!
  • The Forever Puppy Infomercial – Always playful, always snuggly, and everlastingly cute; The Forever Puppy is destined to win the cuteness competition with babies once and for all.
  • BabyCorp and You – Helpful advice and more for new infants on the job at BabyCorp.
  • Babies vs. Puppies: Who Do YOU Love? – Who has won the hearts of familes once and for all? This “scientific” experiment compares and contrasts factors such as “cuddliness,” “adorability,” and “attention grabbing techniques” used by both demanding competitors.
  • The Boss Baby's Undercover Team – From Staci, the note taker who can’t read, to Jimbo the huge baby who’ll take a suction cup arrow for the Boss, to the triple-threat of the Triplets, Boss Baby dives deeper into this team of cute corporate board members.
  • Cookies are for Closers: Inside BabyCorp – Go behind the scenes with Director Tom McGrath as he introduces us to BabyCorp, a secret organization of infants united for a common goal in
    THE BOSS BABY.
  • The Great Sibling Competition – A fun, kid-friendly and humorous look at the competition among siblings to win the affection of their parents. Explore conversations with the cast and crew on their competitive sibling relationships and get very special insights from Boss Baby himself: Alec Baldwin.
