On August 15th, 2012 the world will get to experience The Odd Life of Timothy Green in theaters. Until then, we have a super fun Summer Fun Kit from Disney to share with you. The kit is inspired by the movie and is packed full with recipes, crafts, family activities and more! You can get the full pack from here and check out some goodies from the Summer Fun Kit below (as well as the latest TV spot from the movie!)
Glossy Paper Flowers
- Old magazines
- Glue stick
- Paper fastener
Step 1: To make a bloom, cut two to four flower shapes in various sizes and patterns, as shown. Ours measure 1 1/4 to 5 1/2 inches.
Tip: For a symmetrical flower like the ones pictured, trace a circle onto a magazine page and cut it out (we used an old CD as a template). Fold the circle in half several times, as you would a paper snowflake, then cut the folded paper into the desired petal shape, making sure you don’t cut through the pointed tip.
Step 2: Roll a single magazine page into a slim tube for a stem and secure it using a glue stick.
Step 3: Stack the floral shapes and secure them to the top of the stem with a paper fastener. Pinch or fold the edges of the petals to add dimension.
Flower Power Cupcakes
- Cupcakes (made from your favorite recipe)
- 1 Container Yellow Frosting
- 1 Package Colored Gumdrops
- 1 Package Large Marshmallows
Step 1: To make one, first frost a cupcake prepared from your favorite recipe with yellow icing and place a colored gumdrop in the center.
Step 2: Next, set a large marshmallow on its side, press it flat with your palm, then cut it in thirds with kitchen shears.
Step 3: Repeat with a second marshmallow and arrange the petals around the gumdrop center.
There’s more where these came from! Get your kit and prepare for this amazing movie with your family by your side.
