  • Family Movie Night Activity: The Croods

    “Basically anything new was bad…”

    The Croods are a family of cave men who stay away from everything new. Eep’s father has told her multiple times to “never not be afraid” of new things but her curiosity takes over when someone new named Guy shows up. Soon they are on the biggest adventure they’ve ever had, an adventure that they might not survive. Gather your family to watch this pre-historic family take on the world while you enjoy these Activities and never not enjoy Movie Night!

    Movie Snacks:

    *The Croods work together to get a giant bird egg for dinner. Your family could enjoy eggs for dinner as well, but I would recommend cooking them first. Choose from omelets, scrambled, sunny-side up, or whatever way your family likes them best.
    *When a giant corn cob catches on fire and bursts like a colorful firework, it also makes lots of popcorn. Make your own colorful, flavored popcorn for your movie night and you’ll feel just like you’ve enjoyed popcorn fireworks from your own home.
    *The monkeys stop slapping Grug when Guy gives them some bananas. Give your own little monkeys some fruit to munch on while they watch Grug bumble his way through unknown territory.
    *For drinks, copy Gran’s umbrella drink shown at the end of the movie by adding umbrellas to glasses of fruit juice for everyone.

    Must Pause Moments:

    *Grug is strong and can hurl huge rocks through the air. When you see him showing off his strength, have some “rock” throwing time of your own. Crumble up pieces of paper and let each person see how far they can throw their rock or get a bag, basket or even just the garbage can to give everyone something to aim for.
    *When the Croods come back to their cave to sleep they huddle up together to stay safe and warm. Pause the show and try out their family pile or just snuggle up together to watch the rest of the movie.
    *Grug and Guy both take turns telling stories to the whole family. Have some storytelling time of your own by letting each person finish Guy’s story before he does. Grug thinks his story should end by having everyone die, but you could choose to have the story end however you want. Consider pausing the movie before he finishes the story, letting everyone say how they think it will end, turn the show back on and see if anyone’s ending matches Guy’s.

    Other Activities:

    *The family has emergency shells/horns to stay in contact with one another. You could make “emergency” noisemakers with your family by trying to see what random things you have around the house that would let you stay in contact with each other (such as a whistle, horn, bell, banging pans together) or you could use this as a time to give your family a real emergency whistle or way to stay in touch when someone is in trouble in real life.
    *When Grug and Guy get stuck in the sticky tar, play a round or two of Tar Pit Freeze Tag: follow the rules of Freeze Tag, but instead of being frozen pretend that someone is stuck in the tar and you have to get them out.
    *Grug uses the walls of his cave to make drawings of his family. Make some cave drawings of your family as well. Let your family finger paint or use chalk on colored paper to make some simple depictions of each other. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you could put paint on your face and smash your face into a paper to try and re-create Grug’s invention “The Snapshot.” If you do decide to make “snapshots”, be sure to post them on our Facebook page.

    The Croods

    The Croods are a tightly knit prehistoric family spending nearly every day in a cave to protect themselves from the fierce animals that surround their home. Grug, the over-protective Dad, has set up strict rules to keep the family safe, but when his daughter meets the smart and dreamy Guy, the rebellion starts. After earthquakes and volcanoes destroy their safe cave and change the world, the Croods find they must change with the earth around them or be destroyed.

    This rated PG adventure is refreshingly clean, and ClearPlay only has minor edits to do. The Croods is a great show for the entire family.

    Are The Croods My Kind of Dudes?..

    I’ll admit that when I saw the trailer for this film, I wasn’t interested, but when I watched it with my family, we had a great time. There’s something in The Croods for every age to enjoy, from colorful beasts, to slapstick humor, to a hilarious send up of the family vacation. Nicolas Cage was the perfect choice to voice Grug, the Cave Man father. So circle your loved ones together inside the family kill circle (you’ll see what I mean) and prepare to laugh.
