Stuck for ideas of things to do with the kids on the weekends? Children love to have various forms of entertainment whether they are going out to the park, soft play, theme park or cinema. We are always looking for something different to do to take a break from homework, get some exercise or transport out minds to different place full of fun, excitement and sometimes magical too. Over the Easter holidays we went to see Beauty and the Beast which the girls loved. We don’t go to the cinema often so it was a lovely treat and since then I began looking out for other fun child friendly movies to take them too. I discovered one called Molly Monster which was released in theatres worldwide from the 21st of April by Enchanted Animation. This looked like a movie we could all sit down and enjoy even Mr Squishy – who doesn’t love monster movies especially if they are animated!
This lovely animated movies is perfect for little ones and follows the sweet Molly Monster on an adventure of a lifetime. This delightfully heart-warming and beautifully animated story is all about new beginnings so perfect for the Spring and also for children waiting to greet a new sibling.
When the mummy monsters lay their eggs in Monsterland it is the father’s job to keep them warm until it is time for the eggs to hatch (just like with penguins). Baby monsters only hatch on Egg Island, so when Molly finds out she is going to be having a new brother or sister, she knows her family are off on a trip. Everyone enjoys trips but Molly Monster is too young to join her parents on the journey to Egg Island which leaves her feeling very upset and disappointed. Determined to be reunited with her family Molly sets out on a journey which is longer and far more difficult than anything she could have ever imagined. She is accompanied by Edison, her best friend and toy. On her travels Molly learns what it means to be a family and most importantly what it means to become a big sister!
The target audience is pre-school children although it is also enjoyed by older children too. The movie teaches children about family bonding and friendship and is not to be missed so grab your little Monsters and head on down to your local cinema soon!
I discovered over on the Molly Monster website that there were some printable colouring sheets and thought that they would come in handy in the attempt to fight boredom especially on those rainy days so click ‘boredom stopper‘ and get printing. Over on the site you will also find some puzzles to keep little ones entertained and help develop hand eye co-ordination as well as fine motor skills.
I also have an egg-citing announcement for all the little chocolate monsters out there.
One lucky winner will get their hands on 2 Molly Monster chocolate eggs and some colouring sheets.
