Peanut Toe!!!! Sorry, I can’t get over how funny the movie is. Have you seen The Croods: New Age yet? I was so excited about it being released digitally to own that I tweeted the release a day early! And now I’m here to tell you about our experience at Camp Croods hanging out with the movie’s director and animator along with a team from La Brea Tar Pits a day after you can get in on the fun! I’m a horrible blogger sometimes! Don’t worry, I’m not here just to brag. You still can check out the fun of Camp Croods on February 23rd, at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
What is Camp Croods? Only one of the best virtual events that I have attended. I know, I know. Virtual events tend to be very hit or miss. This one was a hit. Here is the explanation of Camp Croods direct from the press release:
“La Brea Tar Pits, part of the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County (NHMLAC), and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) have partnered with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment to bring families and kids “Camp Croods,” based on the DreamWorks Animation family film The Croods: A New Age. The two separate interactive programs will feature hands-on activities and scientific investigation to explore the Ice Age, human origins and fate of saber-toothed cats. Families will have the chance to meet real-life paleontologists and archaeologists, participate in DIY art projects, explore virtual tar pits (La Brea Tar Pits camp), take a virtual tour of the Human Origins exhibition (NMNH camp) and experience drawing demonstrations that bring the fan favorite prehistoric Croods characters to life.”
Say what?! Yup, you get to meet real life paleontologists that are actually digging up fossils for their jobs.
Not only does Camp Croods give you the background on the science but you get to do DIY art projects too. This is the type of event that we really miss attending live. The amazing thing is that if this was a year ago, we wouldn’t have been able to attend it since it isn’t being held at our local museum. Being able to attend a workshop happening across the country is a blessing that I do not take lightly.
If your littles loved the movie, love visiting museums. and love art, please do not miss the next session happening on February 23rd at 6p. You can register here. And don’t forget that the movie is out to own digitally and will be out to own on 4k Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on February 23rd.
And while you’re getting in the mood for Camp Croods or to watch The Croods: A New Age you can check out these yummy dishes courtesy of our friends at Universal. I really love that they showcase how versatile the banana is!
Oh, and if you made it this far, keep an eye out. In a few days I will be releasing my February Watch List which will of course include The Croods: New Age. But wait, there’s more. I will also be hosting a giveaway!!! Shh, it’s our little secret 😉
