The other day Muriel, Maude and I decided to check out Netflix for movies and we stumbled across 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs'. I'd not seen it when it came out, the girls were too young, and so it was lovely to watch. We then, later the following week went on to watch the second movie as well. We loved them both and it spurred on a couple of at home activities which you might like too, and hey, if you've got Netflix, maybe a movie arvo while you're home might not be so bad either.
Activity 1: Food Rainclouds
The first activity we did was to create food rain clouds. To do this activity we needed:
This activity actually took a fair while as the girls really took their time colouring, gluing and sticking etc. so I was lucky for that. If you're kids a little bit less maticulous you might not have the same luck, sorry 😉
Activity 2: Colouring In
We also did a Google Search for colouring-in pages. The ones I collected you can find in the Downloads at the bottom of this page.
Activity 3: Playdough
The final 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' activity we did was to use playdough to make some of the Foodimals from the second movie. The girls really LOVED the foodimals (so much so we had to look them up! If you need them, we found a good list here). Our favourite to make was the 'Tacodile' (Pictured, made by Muriel, aged 3)
