Free Halloween Coloring Page Featuring Dark Urchin from Slugterra

This Halloween I am creating 5 different coloring pages featuring Ghouled Slugs from slugterra. Today’s Slug is 2 of 5 featuring the Dark Urchin!

The Dark Urchin is the ghouled version of the Dirt Urchin slug. They have a pinkish belly and dark maroon color body. Dark Urchin also features pale green spikes up the back of its body, pale green sharp teeth and glowing red eyes. This is not a slug to take for granted. With 5 attacks, it is a sure bet one of it’s razor-sharp spikes will find you and cause major damage.

At 100 miles per hour, the Dark Urchin looks more like a porcupine than a slug, with spike protruding form it’s body. It is a weapon of razor-sharp destruction.

Dear Sofia: A Royal Collection on DVD

Dear Sofia A Royal Collection DVD

Get ready to meet four of your favorite Disney princesses on one dazzling SOFIA THE FIRST DVD: Dear Sofia: A Royal Collection. When it comes to adventure, Sofia is no stranger. Her family and friends are very important to her and she will do anything to make sure they are safe and happy. Dangerous mazes, Curses, and Spells, will not stop Sofia. Of course, being a princess is tough and sometimes she needs help. In this special DVD collection, Sofia gets help from Mulan, Jasmine, Tiana and Belle.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have always been a Sofia the First fan because each episode has a life lesson to teach. From bravery to kindness, Sofia helps every child (or adult) watching to become a better person and care for those around them. Strength to go forward, conquering your fears, give from the heart, and actions speaking louder than words are only a few things Sofia teaches in these epic 4 episodes featuring Disney Princesses.

Sofia the First Mulan

When it comes to a Jade Jaguar, it takes a brave soul to traverse the dangerous path and save her family and friends. With the Help of Amber and Jun, all three princesses find themselves on a quest. But when they are trapped by several warrior statues it takes a special song from Mulan to teach them to never give up because the strength is inside you. After the encouragement from Mulan, Sofia, Amber and Jun swing past the statues, wave away moths, ride lizards and confront the Jade Jaguar. In the end they learn that they can do anything they put their mind to. Whether you are a princess, a girl or a child watching this adventurous episode, everyone has a lot of strength inside. You just have to keep moving forward and use your mind.

Sofia the first two to tangu

Of course, fear can be a sudden adventure stopper. When Sofia and Amber get trapped in the hanging gardens in “Two to Tangu,” they must figure out a way to escape. But with a wild carpet that refuses to obey, it is harder than it sounds. It takes the amulet bringing Princess Jasmine to help the girls conquer their fear, tame the magic carpet and fly out of the hanging Gardens. This episode really focus on the fact that we should not be afraid of the unknown but jump right in. Fear can be a hindrance to all the fun we could have in life but if we follow our hearts and conquer our fears we may just be soaring through the clouds.

Sofia the first Winters Gift Princess Tiana

Following ourheart can be tough when we are unsure about the reaction from others. Will they appreciate a gift we worked so hard on to give them with all our hearts? Sofia questioned this when she realized Cedric may not like the wand case she made for him for Wassailia Day. In an effort to give her friend a better gift, she goes on a hunt for Ice Lilies, which have become very rare. On her trip she runs into a Fawn named Winter who has an ice curse; everything she touches turns to ice. She must find the perfect gift to give Glacia the Ice Witch in order to reverse the curse. Together, Sofia and Winter, look for the Ice Lilies and bring them to Glacia.

However, the Lilies are boring and not very special, making Glacia cranky and unkind. She instructs the pair to find another gift. Lost with no hope, Sofia’s amulet summons Princess Tiana. She explains that gifts from the heart, whether big or small, can be found inside us all because finding the perfect gift comes from the heart. Eventually, we all learn that it isn’t the size of the gift or where it was found, a gift given from the heart, whether homemade or bought, is special because it comes from you. Keeping this in mind, Sofia gives Cedric her homemade wand case and watches as her friend goes from disgust to absolute happiness.

Sofia the First the amulet and the anthem

For Sofia, her friends happiness means the world to her, but even Sofia has her moments of mistakes. After all, no one is perfect. But what makes Sofia wonderful is what she does when she realizes she has done something wrong. In “The Amulet and the Anthem”, Sofia is picked to be the Enchancian Anthem Singer. All of a sudden she is surrounded by painters, interviewed and being treated like the most important person in Enchancia. It is all a little overwhelming and it goes straight to her head as she brags to her friends. Upon making her mistake, Sofia begins to croak like a frog. Cedric, in his own crazy way, tells Sofia she has been cursed for doing something bad. It surprises Sofia, but in an effort to make it right she retraces her steps to find where she went wrong. After she realizes it was her bragging to her friends that caused the curse she apologizes and asks for their forgiveness. When this still doesn’t release the curse, the amulet calls on Princess Belle to help Sofia see that actions do in fact speak louder than words. Instead of just saying she is sorry she needs to show it and do something great for her friends. With Belle’s help, Sofia brings her friends to the stage to sing the Anthem and her croak goes away.

Along with all four Princess Episodes, Dear Sofia: A Royal Collection also comes with two bonus episodes. Follow Sofia in “Minimus is Missing” as she helps rescue all the stolen horses of the kingdom and where Amber must learn if you fall off a flying horse, you must get back on and try again. Sofia also dives deep once again to see all her mermaid friends in “Cool Hand Fluke.” Fluke is a merman who needs to be the center of attention. When Sofia begins taking it from him he gets reckless. Fluke must learn that everyone in the spotlight together is better than being in it alone.

This DVD also comes with a wonderful “Letter to Sofia Kit” featuring a cute Pen, card, envelope and stickers (I love Stickers)! The card is double sided. One side has your child tell Sofia all about themselves, the other side lets them get creative and draw an interesting picture. Everything you need to write Sofia is included in the kit, well almost everything; you have to provide the stamp to mail it off.

Sofia the First Dear Sofia Letter Kit

The cool part is, if you get the letter there before the end of December 2015, Your child may just get a response back from Sofia. Now that is exciting! Get more information about Dear Sofia on Disney Junior for Grown Ups.

To purchase this movie and start your Sofia adventure with the kids, head over to amazon.com. It is certainly a must have for all the royalty in the house.

Hotel Transylvania 2 Halloween Cubeecraft of Johnny

Hotel Transylvania attracts all kinds of creatures and monsters…and the occasional human. I guess Dracula should have remembered no fire, because Fire is bad. When Jonathan (Johnny) intrudes on the perfection that is Hotel Transylvania owned and operated by Dracula, Johnny’s life was never the same. He dressed like Johnnystein, zinged it with a great gal, and Dracula’s daughter, Mavis, and learned that even slackers and their backpacks have a place in the world.

I am gonna sit this right here so people know beyond this point, there will be [SPOILERS]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In Hotel Transylvania 2, Johnny marries his zing and eventually has a family. He starts attempting to make the hotel a more human friendly place, but Dracula is stubbern about what he will change. In the meantime, Johnny disrupts the workings of the hotel when the zombies discover social media, texting and video chat (which is a constant problem for Drac).

Although Johnny is proud to be a human, he loves the Hotel and states that it is the only place he ever felt he fit in (paraphrasing there). However, since Dennis was born ‘human,’ Mavis wants to take Dennis to California where it is safer. The reality of moving from the only place Johnny fit in (Hotel Transylvania) shakes him to the core. He makes a deal with Dracula to take Mavis to California while Dracula attempts to bring out little Dennis’s fangs and make a monster out of his grandson.

Johnny is a talkative, outgoing red-headed adventurer. He is a slacker, a boy that takes it one step of the time. He is on a road to the unknown. Drac tolerates him since his daughter fell in love with him but most monsters and humans like Johnny. He is kind, funny and a little out there…I guess he would have to be to marry a vampire.

Johnny wears a green and white t-shirt over an orange long-sleeve shirt, tan pants and blue shoes. His has shaggy hair and fair skin. With red hair like that he is probably just as sensitive to the sun as Mavis is.

This cubeecraft features Johnny in his standard clothes, complete with shaggy hair.

To Build the Cubeecraft:
Materials needed:
Printer
Card stock
scissors
x-acto knife

To make:

  1. Cut out each item along the outer black lines, be careful with Johnny’s hair..
  2. Cut along the white on each tab, the white lines on either side of the face and the white line above the head using the x-acto knife
  3. Cut along each red line using the x-acto knife
  4. Fold along each inner solid black line ( be carefule with the head. the skin part does not fold down) and slide each tab into the slots you created with an x-acto knife to form a cube of the head, body, arms, and feet
  5. Slide the arms through the red slots on either side of the body.
  6. Slide the feet through the red slots at the base of the body.
  7. Slide the now completed body through the red lots of the head.
  8. slide the black tabs of the hair through the slots on either side of the face

Johnny is now complete. To download the template click the image below and save it to your computer. Then print and create!

Mr. Peabody & Sherman Are Coming to Netflix

The world’s smartest dog and his boy are back October 9 with DreamWorks Animation’s The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show exclusively on Netflix! It will star Chris Parnell as Mr. Peabody and Max Charles as Sherman.

Broadcasting in front of a live studio audience from their swanky NYC apartment, meet late night's newest talk show hosts, Mr. Peabody (R) and Sherman. Catch them in the all-new original series "The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show," debuting exclusively on Netflix October 9.

Broadcasting in front of a live studio audience from their swanky NYC apartment, meet late night’s newest talk show hosts, Mr. Peabody (R) and Sherman. Catch them in the all-new original series “The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show,” debuting exclusively on Netflix October 9.

THE MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN SHOW will turn the late night world upside down. Hosted by the world’s smartest dog, Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman, the high-energy talk show is broadcast in front of a live studio audience from their swanky New York City penthouse. In each episode the co-hosts interview a menagerie of historical figures, like George Washington and Edgar Allen Poe, and bring musical guests to the stage, all while nosey neighbors continuously interfere with their own agendas.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This modern take on the animated classic pairing not only brings the characters to the 21st century, but places them in a setting not unlike the after-midnight talk shows of the 60s – but one for families to enjoy together. Also in every episode, Peabody’s WABAC machine transports the talk show hosts and viewers on their Time Travel Adventures to the days of history’s most prominent figures, who are bent on accomplishing anything but what they’re known for – if not for a little help from Peabody. Historical figures Mr. Peabody and Sherman visit in the first several episodes include Napoleon, Cleopatra, Mozart, and Marco Polo. Peabody also uses the WABAC to bring important historical figures back to their modern day talk show set to bring history alive through hilarious segments and musical numbers.

With a comic pace that will keep audiences laughing at one ridiculous gag to the next, THE MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN SHOW takes a sideward look at both world history and television through comedy built for kids and their families.

Check out this bonus clip where there is a thief on the loose and his name is Bumblebeard.

THE MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN SHOW is DreamWorks Animation Television’s seventh show to debut following the launch of their original prehistoric adventure DINOTRUX this past August. Quickly becoming a leader in producing high-quality television series for families around the world, DreamWorks Animation Television utilizes the talents of its award-winning cast of characters, storytellers and artists to produce hit shows like DRAGONS: RACE TO THE EDGE, ALL HAIL KING JULIEN, and THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS.

Free Halloween Coloring Page Featuring Grimmstone from Slugterra

This Halloween I am creating 5 different coloring pages featuring Ghouled Slugs from slugterra. Today’s Slug is 1 of 5 featuring the Grimmstone!

The Grimmstone is the ghouled version of the Rammstone slug. They have a pinkish belly, Blue stripes and a dark maroon back. Grimmstone has sharp teeth and red eyes making them appear unnatural and evil. Grimmstone slugs are made by engulfing Rammstone slugs in Karum-Zanul or Dark Water. The dark water also makes the Grimmstone far more powerful and increases it’s strength.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At 100 miles per hour, the Grimmstone turns black with a red belly and green fists and horns. The teeth are more pronounced, sticking way out like spikes or shards of glass, giving it the appearance of something from your nightmares ready to shred you to pieces.

Hotel Transylvania 2 Halloween Cubeecraft of Mavis

Mavis is the daughter of Dracula. In Hotel Transylvania, she wanted to see the world and meet the humans. Dracula was totally against this, for reals, and lied to keep her home. It was all working as planned until Johnny, a human, walked into the monster hotel. Needless to say, chaos ensued, followed by a zing, mortal terror and some monster fun.

I am gonna sit this right here so people know beyond this point, there will be [SPOILERS]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In Hotel Transylvania 2, Mavis has a baby named Dennis. Her whole view on what is safe, acceptable and right changes to fit her now possibly human son. fearing the hotel may be too dangerous for a little human boy, she leaves to check out California to decide whether or not it would be a great place to raise her son.

While Mavis is caring and worrisome towards her little boy and just wants what’s best for him, she often times seemd like a control freak, or in the words of Dracula, “Coo-Coo.” Really all she wants is what is best for her boy.

Mavis has pale skin (of course, no sunshine allowed), Blue eyes and Black hair. She wears a black dress with black and red striped leggings and red shoes. Her hair is black and curls up in a cute chic design.

This cubeecraft features many of Mavis’s characteristics with her striped leggings, black hair and red shoes. Mavis is free to download, however, I will accept donations. These projects take a long time to create and any amount is much appreciated!

To Build the Cubeecraft:
Materials needed:
Printer
Card stock
scissors
x-acto knife

To make:

  1. Cut out each item along the outer black lines (from both pages).
  2. Cut along the white on each tab using the x-acto knife
  3. Cut along each red line using the x-acto knife
  4. Fold along each inner solid black line and slide each tab into the slots you created with an x-acto knife to form a cube of the head, body, arms, and feet

  6. Slide the feet through the red slots at the base of the body.
  7. Slide the now completed body through the red lots of the head.

Celebrate National Good Neighbor Day with Cinderella

Cinderella Costume

Back in the 1970s, Becky Mattson of Lakeside, Montana created National Good Neighbor Day. In 1978, the day was made official when United States President Jimmy Carter issued Proclamation 4601:

As our Nation struggles to build friendship among the peoples of this world, we are mindful that the noblest human concern is concern for others. Understanding, love, and respect build cohesive families and communities. The same bonds cement our Nation, and the nations of the world. For most of us, this sense of community is nurtured and expressed in our neighborhoods where we give each other an opportunity to share and feel part of a larger family.

In recognition of the importance of fostering compassion and respect in ourselves for our neighbors, the Congress has requested the proclamation of September 24, 1978, as National Good Neighbor Day (S.J. Res. 133).

Now, Therefore, I, Jimmy Carter, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim Sunday, September 24, 1978, as National Good Neighbor Day. I call upon the people of the United States and interested groups and organizations to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred seventy-eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and third. (www.presidency.ucsb.edu

In 2003, the date was changed from the fourth Sunday in September to September 28th.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


With this month marking National Courtesy Month, What better way to recognize National Good Neighbor Day then by sharing Cinderella’s statement of “Have Courage and be Kind.” Share your words of kindness to your fellow neighbors here —> www.cinderellakindness.com for the Million Words of Kindness Campaign. One kind word can make all the difference in the world!

In the movie, Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother (played by Helena Bonham Carter) demonstrated her act of kindness by blessing kind-hearted Cinderella with a beautiful gown. In honor of the generous gestures, we have some concept art sketches from Costume Designer Sandy Powell and a bonus clip that touches upon the costumes from the film that we’d love to share with you. Cinderella is now available on Blu-ray, Disney Movies Anywhere and Digital HD.

Bonus Clip: Costumes
