It's Just For Fun Friday! On JFFF, we review items and activities that you can do with your kids in order to increase their cultural competence and diversity awareness.
Be sure to stay tuned to the end of the video for a very special announcement! Don't miss it!
I just realized that I have been going a little movie crazy lately here on JFFF. I'm sorry, I can't help it! In the middle of the summer, when it's hot (and it is hot. It is so so hot) I have a hard time mustering up the energy to do much else at the end of the day. And besides, I enjoy it - and so do my kids. Because let's face it - they are running around in the blazing sun way more than I am.
Ok, ok, I will fix my movie habit. Soon. Not today, but soon.
Until then, we're going to enjoy the latest - it's a Disney movie, so you might have heard about it. The Princess and the Frog. It received a TON of press when it first came out because the 'princess' in the film is the first Black princess Disney has ever done. And it's about time. I mean, this movie came out in 2009, after we had elected our first Black president here in America. Way to be behind the times Disney.
No, but really, this is a fun movie that all kids can enjoy - I know mine did. So check out the video and then print out the page below for a quick list of potential questions and comments you can ask your kids as you're watching the movie together. There's also a link to buy the movie. It's a great addition to any kids' movie collection.
How does this movie compare to other Disney movies? What about Tiana as a princess? Does it matter that she is not a 'real princess' until the end? Leave a comment below.
Most of all, enjoy. And don't forget to HAVE FUN!
Check back next week for another Just For Fun Friday!
