We have done many movie nights. But, we have always simply closed the drapes, turned off the lights, microwaved popcorn, and watched a family appropriate movie. But, reading so many blogs on the Internet has inspired me to add some crafts and activities to our "movie nights." So, last week we did our first extra-special movie night with "E.T."
We started by painting one of our fingers red, to replicate what happens to the tip of E.T.'s finger when he heals a flower or a person.
I wasn't sure if the girls liked the movie. But a few days later, I found Catherine with the remote control to our DVR system: she had done a search for E.T. and scheduled it to record! I had no idea she knew how to do that ... she definitely has her father's technological tendencies. She said she wanted to watch the movie again and I took it back to the library.
Yesterday the girls walked at the pool with their towels completely draped over their heads. I told them they could not walk blindly like that and asked them what I was doing. Sabrina said they were pretending they were E.T. out trick or treating.
