We are so excited about Disney’s CHRISTOPHER ROBIN coming to theaters everywhere this weekend! Like many people, I have been a fan of Winnie the Pooh and all his friends since childhood. When I was a little girl a friend of my mom made me a complete hand-sewn set of the animal friends including Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Kanga, Roo and Tigger. I SO loved them!
I had forgotten about my stuffed pals until I saw a screening of Disney’s CHRISTOPHER ROBIN last night. As I was watching I remembered how much I loved them and vowed to go explore my Mom’s basement until I find them again.
It’s so easy to forget about things from childhood, even important things, and that’s a central focus of Disney’s CHRISTOPHER ROBIN. In our adult lives we get so caught up in work and what “has to be done” that we forget about the fun and the important things that really make a life a life.
To make some special childhood memories with YOUR kids that will hopefully last a long time, we have this fun Winnie the Pooh Paper Plate Craft. Crafting with kids is a fun way to spend family time or add some magic to an average school day. This Pooh craft is easy to make with only a few supplies and your kids can feel free to get as imaginative as they want by creating their Pooh the way they think he should look.
Easy Winnie the Pooh Paper Plate Craft
Cut two half-circles from yellow craft foam.
From the black craft foam, cut two circles for eyes, a circle for the nose, a curved mouth and (if you like) two small curved eyebrows.
Use the glue stick to glue foam to paper plate.
Note: If you prefer you can use a black marker to add the eyebrows. You can also add other highlights with a marker.
In Disney’s heartwarming live action adventure, the young boy who shared countless adventures with his stuffed animal friends in the Hundred Acre Wood has grown up and lost sight of what’s important in life. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin rediscover the joys of family life, the value of friendship and to appreciate the simple pleasure in life once again.
