Kids Off the Couch - Creative Learning Adventures

This whimsical website connects media (movies/books) with super cool educational adventures.  For example, they watch Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, then go visit a chocolate store to sample/judge chocolate flavors.  After watching Bug's Life, they went to visit an insect zoo.  After watching Field of Dreams, attend a baseball game.  Read/watch Chronicles of Narnia, then plant a tree together.

They have paired together some very fun activities with classic and new films and books.  My media savvy husband is going to love these ideas!

Wouldn't this be a super cool way to celebrate a great week of learning?  Fantastical Fridays could be afternoons of learning and adventure all over town.  How fun!
