Considering the insane weather we’ve had here in NY lately (between Hurricane Sandy one week and a Noreaster the next!), I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if this winter sends us way back to the Ice Age.
Heck, that’d actually be kinda fun. We could hang out with Manny, Sid, and Diego as they embark on yet another zany quest. I’d totally stick with those guys. They face the most insane odds ever (They somehow managed to survive glaciers, dinosaurs, and insane pirates!) and live to tell the tale. I’d definitely hunt down Scrat and help the poor little guy finally get a nut or two.
Ice Age 4: Continental Drift may not be hitting DVD until December 11 (keep your eyes peeled on Mommy’s Busy… Go Ask Daddy for a Blu-ray giveaway!), but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun in the meantime. Take a look at these Ice Age activity sheets you can print out and share with your kids.
Just click on each image to open it in a new window, and then click the thumbnail to view a larger version and then print.
I used to LOVE playing the “Dots” game with my mom. We’d play it all the time when I was a kid just waiting at the doctors’ office. Replace dots with acorns, and you’ve got the gist!
Who doesn’t love finding hidden objects in pictures? Again, I remember spending a ton of time as a kid reading Highlights magazine solely for the Hidden Pictures section. And yeah, that was always at the dentist’s office.
I’m a writer. I think I’m pretty decent at writing. Drawing, on the other hand, I couldn’t do to save my life. Seriously. I can barely draw a stick figure! There is no way I can draw Captain Gutt, especially in just four steps! I’ll have to give it a shot, though and show you my results.
I love Sudoku! It’s such a fun math game, even my kids (well, okay, just Jason) love doing them. I’ve seen a few of these picture-based ones for younger kids and it’s really a great way to introduce them to Sudoku.
Happy Activity Sheeting!
