Meet the Robinsons is one of my favorite Disney movies. The humor is underrated, in my opinion, and it has such a goose message about “owning your mistakes and keep moving forward.”
I think everyone focuses on the KEEP MOVING FORWARD and forgets the first part of the quote. Owning one’s mistakes. We don’t learn unless we fail, and as people we all fail an extraordinary amount.
Any way. Back to it.
For our Meet the Robinson’s day we talked about great inventors, like Louis, and talked about what the dragons would want to invent.
My oldest, per usual, went with a space theme. My middle wanted a smart house that can change into anything. My youngest was very focused on a house that could turn into a submarine.
These dragons of mine are always building- legos, tiles, sand, dirt, sticks… anything and everything. I loved them putting pencil to paper and coming up with even bigger ideas than those they put together day-to-day.
What’s coming next? Let’s just say we will be exploring the perfect peanut butter to jelly ratio in a unique way….
RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON is on Disney + with Premier Access. If you haven’t paid the $30 to watch this movie now, or seen it in theaters, don’t keep scrolling. It will be available for everyone on Disney+ starting June 4th (we’re closer than it feels)!
This movie is magical and just what was needed right now for our family. The idea of Kumandra really struck a chord, and the dragons sat through the whole thing. Sisu is a family favorite, as well as all the characters that come together to save their lands.
*SPOILERS ARE POSSIBLE IN THIS POST*
We started our Raya day by imagining ourselves as dragon and what our powers would be.
As they collect the dragon gems in the movie, Sisu gains the powers of her brothers and sisters.
So my dragons liked to imagine themselves as literal dragons and decide which power they would best like to have from the film (or any power from their imagination!).
Printable is below. What kind of dragon powers did you and yours dream up?
Ready for more paw-some fun? (I know… bad, but I just couldn’t help myself.)
For our 101st Day of School, we used paw prints to write down some of the awesome things we had learned so far during our school year.
After the dragons had finished coloring them and such, they cut them out (and I helped with some). Then they were distracted while I hid the paw prints around the house! Once that was done, they had to go around and find the prints. Whoever found the most, won!
I didn’t have a prize because, if I’m honest, I did not want to engage in any arguments. BUT they had a lot of fun with this. They asked me multiple times to hide the paw prints. I did it twice. After that, it was up to them!
Another idea for these prints is to use them to put on things that start with “p”. It just so happened we were doing that letter during our Disney day escapade, so my middle dragon went around later and put paw prints on sever things (pretzels, pickles, a toy pig, the potty… you get the idea).
