“Bee Movie” is a comedy that will change everything you think you know about bees. Having just graduated from college, a bee by the name of Barry B. Benson (Jerry Seinfeld) finds himself disillusioned with the prospect of having only one career choice—honey. As he ventures outside of the hive for the first time, he breaks one of the cardinal rules of the bee world and talks to a human, a New York City florist named Vanessa (Renee Zellweger). He is shocked to discover that the humans have been stealing and eating the bee’s honey for centuries. He ultimately realizes that his true calling in life is to set the world right by suing the human race. That is until the ensuing chaos upsets the very balance of nature. It is up to Barry to prove that even a little bee can spell big changes in the world.

Kids Frugal Fun: Soda Bottle Halloween Ghosts

Halloween is quickly approaching so I thought why not recycle and make a cute craft?  Here is my Soda Bottle Halloween Ghosts Crafts!

Don’t miss the rest of the Halloween themed crafts!

If you’ve missed any previous crafts, check out Momondealz’s Kids Frugal Fun page. Just a side note, I laminateas much as I can when doing games such as this-it really helps preserve the pieces!

Remember, if you love any of my crafts, be sure to Pin them on Pinterest!

Soda Bottle Halloween Ghosts

Materials:
Soda Bottles (2 liter)
Sharp Scissors
White Tissue Paper
Black Construction Paper
Mod Podge

Directions:
1.  Clean and dry a 2 liter soda bottle.
2.  Cut the top off with a sharp knife or scissors (obviously the adult does this part).

3.  Cover the bottom and part of the sides with Mod Podge. Try to not go past the half-way point because it will make the ghost look less “flowy”.


4.  Lay one sheet of white tissue paper on top of the covered bottle.

5.  Using the black construction paper, create ghost eyes and mouths and add to your ghost.

Halloween Kids Movies

curious george halloween

My kids love Halloween and they love when we have a movie night, so I decided to research some Halloween Kids Movies.  With my boys being so young, I had to make sure they weren’t too scary for them (sadly for my horror movie loving husband).  I realize not all my readers have little children and may be on the lookout for movies suited for all kids and ages.

Here are a list of some of the Halloween Kids Movies I thought would be good for children of all ages.
