It is almost summer, its a Friday and the weather is nice out, so we decided to have our #Movienightfriday outside in our outdoor theater. Yes, living upstate (still unofficially full time as of right now) we have set one up in our yard. It was for worth it. Matthew and the rest of the family love the set up.
Anyway, we are having a Little Mermaid triple feature tonight. Yes I am that mom that allows multiple movies. We try to watch them all in one night or weekend. Tonight we will be watching The Little Mermaid, The Little Mermaid II:Return to the Sea and The Little Mermaid III: Ariel’s Beginning.
Now, I usually do a geographic lesson with our films but this one is a bit harder. There is no exact pinpoint location like other films but there are several clues as to where these films take place. You can read more about that in detail from my book The Disney Pixar Connection Volume 2: Straight to Video, which will be released on Black Friday. Anyway, Atlantica is in the Atlantic Ocean between the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.
Besides Geography and ELA (covered in the 5 Ws). We can talk more about the history of Mermaids. It is a little dark so that us my warning to you.
Or you can become a mermaid yourself now.
Then we had fun making Ariel inspired Frappuccinos.
