While candy seems to be one of the easiest ways to fill an Easter basket, it’s not really what I want to do for W especially since he is only 16-months old. Small toys and clothes are great Easter basket ideas but DVDs make wonderful Easter basket gifts that are great for the whole family!
Twentieth Century Fox recently introduced four family films on Blu-ray for the first time! These titles include Fernfully: The Last Rainforest, Thumbelina, The Many From Snowy River and Aquamarine.
Ferngully happens to be one of my favorite movies from my childhood so I was thrilled to learn that it was coming out on Blu-ray! I love being able to share the movies I enjoyed when I was young with my son! Thumbelina also looks like one that he will enjoy and I think my niece might like Aquamarine but Ferngully is the one I am most excited about!
I enjoyed watching the movie again although it took me a few sittings and I ended up finishing it alone. W just doesn’t have the attention span to sit through an entire movie but I think he enjoyed the colors and the animation. I definitely enjoyed seeing it again after so many years!
In these new to Blu-ray releases, all of the main characters find themselves in the middle of an adventure, whether it’s saving a rainforest in Ferngully or escaping from a giant toad in Thumbelina. You can have your own family adventure this spring just by getting outside and exploring your neighborhood!
You don’t have to live near the Rocky Mountains or the Sahara Desert to have an adventure – there are perfectly good journeys to be had right in your own neighborhood! Hop on your bike, your skateboard, or just use your feet, and get a move on, as you explore some nooks and crannies in your own backyard. You can even bring a camera to document your expedition and save the photos for a scrapbook so you can remember your own fun spring quest.
If you have a Ferngully fan in your family, check out this free, printable Ferngully Easter card that would make a great addition to your child’s Easter basket!
