Have you heard of Kidtoons? Well if you haven’t you are surely missing all the fun. Kidtoons is dedicated to helping parents connect with their kids by bringing family friendly animated movies to the big screen every weekend at participating theatres across the country.
Participating Kidtoons theatres showcase a fun, affordable family friendly matinee movie and provide a family experience filled with entertaining, kid-friendly characters, as well as cartoon shorts, music videos and sing-alongs before each movie.
This month’s feature is Dino Dan, a true favorite of my children. They even have fun giveaways for the kids (like the one below), such as stickers, temporary tattoos, activity books or toys after every film. They also offer coloring contests which my children are new to but they are enjoying the printable Dino Dan coloring sheet even now as I type. Make sure you sign up for their free weekly newsletter to keep up to date on what is happening and coming soon. It is a very cool resource that the team at Mom to Bed by 8 make use of again and again.
With the cold weather finally here, it is the perfect time to bundle the kids up and head out for a show. Find a participating Kidtoons theater here, http://www.kidtoonfilms.com/theatrelocations2.html
