We have had some awesome weather here in southern Ontario so far this fall. But the evenings are definitely getting colder, and the days are definitely getting shorter. I’m already finding myself looking longingly at our fireplace and daydreaming about cuddling on the couch with a blanket and warm cocoa.
It’s getting to the time of year when we begin to spend more time indoors with our families. And our focus turns to finding new ways to keep everyone entertained and fight the cabin fever that can come from our long Canadian winters. (Can you tell I’m not a winter gal??)
Just in time for the change in the weather, DreamWorks Animation is releasing two new DVDs with episodes of some of our favourite character’s TV series.
“Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness – The Scorpion Sting” and “Monsters vs. Aliens: Cloning Around” both hit stores on October 15.
These series, based of course on the hit movies that first introduced us to these characters, provide some great family entertainment for long fall evenings on the couch. I’m a particular fan of the goofy and sweet B.O.B. from Monsters vs. Aliens, while Little Boo is big on Kung Fu Panda, given his love of martial arts.
Since Hallowe’en is just around the corner, here are a couple of fun printables for you. Just right-click the image and choose “save as” from the drop-down menu in order to save to your own computer.
Kung Fu Panda wishes you a happy Hallowe’en:
And, how about a creepy mad scientist stencil for your jack o’lantern?
