Disney Movie Night: Bolt

The menu for our Bolt movie night featured waffles because of Waffle World, the restaurant that provided the map for the epic adventure in the film.

Bolt Movie Night Menu: 
Waffle World’s Fried Chicken and Waffles 
Mr. Carrot’s Carrot and Dip 
Bolt’s Super Puppy Chow


If you haven’t tried the chicken and waffle combo, you should. Mmm-mmm.


I highly recommend the puppy chow. Addictive!


I forgot to put drinks on the menu. But I added “Mittens’ Milk” and “Penny’s Pop” to the table after the fact.

We enjoyed the movie, of course. It’s a sweet little film with a nice message. Oh, and explosions!

Disney Bolt Activity: Visiting the Animal Shelter

With Bolt being the theme of our week, it was a great time to take the kids to visit an animal shelter.

We have been to our local shelter to get dog licenses, but never to visit the animals. It turns out that in addition to dogs and cats, they have lots of bunnies, some guinea pigs and even a turtle!

This dog came in from outside to meet us

Hello, kittens!


A lovely, big guy

Bye bye, Cat

Sweet little bunny

I wanted to take all the sweet animals home. Especially the chihuahua! But we were just there for a visit this time. We got Sonny from a shelter 10 years ago when he was just a puppy, and he’s been the best dog ever. If we ever have need for another pet, we will definitely be back.


Disney Bolt Inspired Sensory Bin

My obsession with sensory bins continues, this time with Bolt’s kryptonite, Styrofoam!


I included:

Styrofoam packing pieces
Styrofoam balls
White mini pom poms
Yellow felt lightning bolts
Plastic carrot (for Bolt’s favorite toy)
Small glittery balloon animal dog buttons


I thought this one was sort of “blah” but Scarlett liked it immediately. She started talking about the difference between the fluffy small balls and the hard bigger balls. She really enjoyed comparing the two! She arranged them by size and had fun sorting as well. Cool!

I probably won’t use styrofoam again because Luke’s favorite thing to do with it was dump it out and leave it on the floor. But this one was easy to put together a bin made of stuff I already had around the house (yes, even the funny little balloon dogs). I’m glad the kids could have fun with it.


Disney Movie of the Week: Bolt

This week, our movie is Luke’s favorite, Bolt!

The kids loves dogs, and trains, which puts this film at the top of our Disney list. Throw in the maps and the action sequences, and Luke is hooked!
Sonny & Lassie
Our Dog, Sonny, on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

I’m not sure why this movie isn’t very popular. Someone else out there must like it, too, right? Just in case, I’ll be posting a few activities and a movie night dinner. Bolt Fans Unite!
