Printable Disneynature’s Bears Activity Sheets

disneynature bears activity sheets
I am so excited that Disneynature is bringing BEARS to the big screen!  I was a big fan of Disneynature’s CHIMPANZEE (you can read my review of Disneynature’s CHIMPANZEE here).  I love bears and Alaskan wildlife in general.  This movie just has to be extremely beautiful!  We’ll find out soon as it comes to theaters on Friday, April 18th!

In the meantime, your kids can have some fun with a whole bunch of free printable Disneynature’s Bears Activity Sheets!  They include Alaskan Animal Cards, a Brown Bear Identification Guide, word search, animal cut-outs, a Brown Bear Adaptations Game and many more.  Enjoy!

In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure “Bears” showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons. Set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, their journey begins as winter comes to an end and the bears emerge from hibernation to face the bitter cold. The world outside is exciting—but risky—as the cubs’ playful descent down the mountain carries with it a looming threat of avalanches. As the season changes from spring to summer, the brown bears must work hard to find food—ultimately feasting at a plentiful salmon run—while staying safe from rival male bears and predators, including an ever-present wolf pack. “Bears” captures the fast-moving action and suspense of life in one of the planet’s last great wildernesses—Alaska!

Birds of Paradise on DVD with Printable Activity Sheet and Giveaway

disclosure 83b1c454-928a-11e3-9b97-005056b70bb8

Just in time to make their nests in your Easter baskets this year, Birds of Paradise is flying in with some feathered fun, arriving on DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet) April 1 exclusively at Walmart and Redbox from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The film will be available on Digital HD, Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View everywhere the same day. Awarded the DOVE seal of approval, this family-friendly adventure proves you shouldn’t judge a bird by their feathers and features the voices of a talented cast including Drake Bell (TV’s “Drake & Josh), Ashley Tisdale (TV’s “High School Musical”), Ken Jeong (Despicable Me 2), Jane Lynch (TV’s “Glee”), Jon Lovitz (The Benchwarmers) and Keith David (Free Birds).

When Jack, an ordinary sparrow with dreams of becoming an extraordinary bird, is accidently covered in colorful paint, he is thrilled about his new exotic appearance and believes that he’ll now be able to impress Aurora, a beautiful canary who has recently escaped from her indoor cage.  But when Aurora’s mean owner, Mr. Potter, finds her, Jack must enlist the help of his best friends – Vinnie, the loyal pigeon and Skeeter, the hyper hummingbird as well as Rosie, the caring bat and the wise Old Buzzard in order to free her. And along the way, Jack and Aurora will learn that it’s not what you look like on the outside, but who you are on the inside that truly counts.

Timed to the theatrical release of Rio 2, the Birds of Paradise DVD features all-new bonus material including a look behind the scenes of the voice recording sessions and a sneak peek at award-winning animated Miniscule shorts. The Birds of Paradise DVD will be available exclusively at Walmart for the suggested retail price of $19.98.

For some extra Birds of Paradise fun, print out this Birds of Paradise Activity Sheet.  It’s a fun maze to help Jack find Aurora.
