Finding things to do this summer with both girls has been a bit challenging because of our schedule, or because of their short age difference. At 3 and 6, many activities have a cutoff which makes them part of different groups. While I don’t mind if their swimming and dance classes are separate, it would be nice if we could find more activities they can do together. The zoos, aquarium, and movies are fun family activities we can all do together. It is nice to see some familiar titles comes out this summer, one of which is Shaun the Sheep. This is a character we were already familiar with, and Shawn the lovable sheep is great for children between 4-10. My 3 year old already watches Shaun the Sheep, so the age recommendation isn’t really a big deal for us.
On August 5th, you can go on an adventure with Shaun the Sheep at your local movie theater where you can meet Shaun, Trumper, Timmy, and Slip. One thing I love about Shaun the Sheep is production- I’m intrigued by Claymation and all that goes into bringing a show to life with clay. It reminds me of my old favorite, Gumby, and I love that despite all the new technological advances in movies, Claymation has made it’s way back as a novelty to movies. Of course, my kids can’t appreciate it as much as I can, but they love the characters and how they interact with each other. After watching the trailer several times, they can’t wait to head over to the movie theater next week to see Shaun the Sheep.
Synopsis: When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.
