In rare occasions, I solicit the help from other fellow bloggers to bring you fun crafts and kid friendly ideas. This time, my friend Keeley from Keeley McGuire Blog writes about A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventure movie. Her daughter, Little Miss, is her tester for all things fun. Together, we bring you this review and a giveaway to win your own copy!
Little Miss was so excited when I told her we were going to spend time this afternoon curled up watching a movie about turtles. She has had a fascination lately with turtles and frogs, so it was great timing to watch A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventure!
She also LOVED Sammy’s Adventure! When I asked her after the movie what her favorite part was she answered “everything”. A big hit to my darling six year old!
A movie is not a movie without snacks. So before we started I decided to make her a fun turtle themed plate of food. She enjoyed this plate that I decorated with my food safe markers to give it fun, underwater details. The turtle at the top of the plate is a Bitty Bite cookie for his body. The bigger turtle sandwich has a gluten free hot dog cut for the head, tail, arms, and legs. The body is a toasted pizza and cheese sandwich I made on gluten free bread. She LOVED it!
A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventure is an adorable kid-friendly, family movie. It follows Sammy’s for a fifty year journey, traveling the world on all kinds of crazy adventures; searching the globe for his friend he lost and meeting new ones along the way. It features voices from great actors such as Tim Curry, Melanie Griffith, Kathy Griffin, Stacy Keaton, Anthony Anderson, and Jenny McCarthy.
The music in the movie is also very fun. Each time a song came on Little Miss would break out her inner “rock star diva” and have a mini dance party in our living room. Priceless!
Little Miss gave this movie a peace sign. Mama gives it two thumbs up! It’s definitely one our family will watch again.
