Big Hero 6 Activity Pack

Big Hero 6 Activity Pack

If you haven't seen Big Hero 6 yet than go and get from your local library. For me it was a spontaneous trip to the cinema with my daughter and the only thing playing at the time was Big Hero 6, it is a brilliant adaptation of a Marvel comic that never really caught on.  I have included some of my favourite clips below

Descendants Party

Descendants Party

Descendants is brilliant, I love it, I think the concept is brilliant. It takes some of the worst villains from Disney, namely Jaffar, Cruella, The Evil Queen and worst of all Maleficent! who have now all had children of their own attending high school with the children from the Disney prince’s and princess’s.

Roald Dahl - The Witches

Roald Dahl - The Witches

Roald Dahl's The Wicthes is the final topic in our Roald Dahl month.  This story really is one of the scariest kids stories you can find and I think that is why it is so popular, I really believe that kids quite enjoy getting scared as long as it's in a safe environment.  I have utilised this in my shows. I have a puppet called Ferris, who looks like a realistic ferret, he comes out all cute and adorable the kids can pet him but then he leaps out into the audience, this delivers a real shock and scream moment in my otherwise very safe a funny shows.  This rollercoaster of emotion is what makes the best stories.  I have two brilliant ideas for you today, a great witch based game and the recipe for pea soup from the story.

Halloween - 2015

Halloween - 2015

Halloween in the U.K is an odd time of year.  It's certainly a bigger event than it was when I was a kid but it's by no means mainstream and it doesn't even start to compete with Christmas or Easter. One of the major hiccups is the whole trick or treat tradition, which doesn't go down well here.  First the weather is normally freezing cold and wet and then having random strangers knocking on your door is not a very British thing to enjoy, it's really weird for us.
