Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 has been and gone at the cinema but it is now available on dvd. Try some of these fun foodie activities inspired by the movie.
Foodimals (food animals) abound. There are susheep, watermelephants, flamangos, tacodiles, mosquitoasts, wildebeets, shrimpanzees, bananostriches, and more. Play spot the kiwifruit kiwi with your little chef or encourage them to design and create their own foodimal.
Keep your eyes peeled for foods that your little chef hasn’t eaten before. Try one of them.
Little chefs can draw a map of Swallow Falls. They can include places from the movie like Syrup Bog, Mussel Beach, and Soft Serve Slopes but they can also use their imagination and make up some placenames of their own!
The foodimals watch a horror at the cinema called Brunch. A watermelon is sliced and a smoothie is whizzed up in a blender. Aaaagh!!! It’s a foodimals worst nightmare. Little chefs can invent their own smoothie and try it out on their family and friends.
Still at the cinema … There is a poster outside the movie theatre advertising an upcoming movie called When Berry Met Salad. Little chefs can create their own salad and add berries to it. What about this one? Shred cabbage, kale, and spinach. Add some julienned carrots and thinly sliced radishes. Toss with a balsamic vinaigrette and sprinkle with sunflower seeds and … dried cranberries! BE SAFE! A grown up needs to do any slicing that involves a sharp knife.
The grapes aren’t being very sunsmart on Mussel Beach and what do they turn into? Raisins! Little chefs can try making their own raisins from grapes.
Meatballs for dinner anyone?
