The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Family Discussion Guide & Prize Pack Giveaway #Spiderman

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2™, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

I have been a Spider-man fan for as long as I can remember. I even dressed as Spider-man for Halloween, two years in a row. Wearing that costume, while running through our backyard and jumping out of our tree is still one of my favorite childhood memories.

Knowing that even the best of movies can bring up important issues, I have the below family discussion guide to share with my readers. Just click on the image to down the .pdf file.

Family Discussion Guide
The discussion guide for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a great resource for families to discuss a range of important themes that include the relationship between personal choices and destiny, living a life that counts, sacrificing yourself in service to others, and the nature of power. This guide will help parents start (or continue) conversations with their children that will inspire them to think outside themselves and challenge them to live lives that matter. The conversations that will result from using this guide will reveal that even the most explosive summer blockbuster can leave lasting, positive impacts on its young viewers.

We downloaded the guide and had a great in-depth discussion with our girls. One I’m glad we had. It’s nice to know that your family is all on the same page when it comes to important issues.

If you have a teenager with a smartphone or tablet in the house, then you already know all about the selfie! Kids will twist and turn and reach in all kinds of directions to get the photo opp. Putting their phones at risk to be dropped.

While owning tech toys like smartphones and tablets is fun for kids, it can be of importance for us as parents. Like having the freedom to connect with our teens at anytime. But, we all know these items don’t come cheap! So, protecting them with a case, is a must in our house.

We recently received the below Soft White Case for our daughter’s iPhone 5C to review. It might not look like much, but the TPU material keeps the phone protected from scratches, and helps her keep a firm grip at any angle, like during selfies, or quick photos on the go.

EXBUY_case002

The snug fit prevents dirt and dust from getting inside the case. Side openings and bumper buttons lets her lock and unlock the phone, plug in and listen to music, charge or use a dock without having to remove the case. Unlike our experience with a much expensive case. It had to be removed every time she wanted to use her dock.

EZBUY_case001

Our daughter has been using this case for over two weeks and has no complaints. When asked, she referred to it as perfect, and just the case she had wanted.

Are you putting your device at risk by not using a case? This could change! The generous people at EZ Buys Direct would like to send one Five Dollar Shake reader the phone or tablet case of their choice.

The Nut Job Free Activity Sheets, Blu-ray Review & Giveaway

Let’s start with some Amazing Squirrel Facts:

In support of Universal Home Entertainment’s release of The Nut Job, get to know the adorable, furry little creatures before you watch the film.

  • There are 365 species of squirrel found all over the world, except in Antarctica, where there are none.
  • Squirrels belong to the animal group Rodentia – the same as mice and rats.
  • Squirrels’ sweat glands are located on their feet.
  • Squirrels can run as fast as 20mph.
  • Flying squirrels don’t actually fly – they glide.
  • Squirrels only mate twice a year.
  • Gray squirrels are often referred to as “living fossils” because they haven’t changed much in their 37million years of existence.
  • Squirrels are born blind.
  • Chipmunks are actually small squirrels with stripes.
  • The squirrel is the Native American symbol for preparation, trust, and thriftiness.

Surly (Arnett) is a mischievous squirrel with a mission: to find the tastiest nuts for winter. When he discovers a whole store filled with his favorite food, he plans a heist of nutrageous proportions. But the place turns out to be owned by ruthless bank robbers so it’s up to Surly and his furry friends to stop the nearby bank heist and save the town.

Showcasing an all-star cast including Brendan Fraser (The Mummy, Whole Lotta Love), Liam Neeson (Non-Stop, The Grey), Katherine Heigl (Knocked Up, The Ugly Truth), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids, Turbo), Jeff Dunham (Arguing With Myself, Spark of Insanity) and Gabriel Iglesias (Magic Mike, Hot & Fluffy), The Nut Job will prove “Enormously Entertaining” for the whole family (Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru)!

I recently received a copy of The Job to review. It was delivered just in-time for these cuties to enjoy during a fun sleepover.

thenutjobsleepover

So I asked…

Did you like The Nut Job?
Libby: Yeah, I did, I really did!
Gabby: Yes.
Becca: I liked it too.

Which was your favorite character, and why?
Libby: Andie! Because I like her.
Gabby: Surly is my favorite. He’s funny.
Becca: All of them. They are so cute. The Dog.

Would you like to watch The Nut Job again?
Libby: Okay. I would like to watch it again.
Gabby: Yes. I would like to watch it again sometime.
Becca: Yes. We get to keep it, right?

My thoughts:
Though I didn’t see that much of the movie, what I did see was beautifully animated. The characters are super cute. The girls sat through the entire movie, and seemed to really enjoy it. Since my granddaughter (Becca) was the one to ask if we “get to keep it” I’m sure we’ll be watching it together on her next visit.

In anticipation of this adventurous release click on and print the free activity sheet below. Perfect to enjoy with your little movie fans!

Rio is one of my all-time favorite animated films. I bet I’ve watched it a dozen times since it came out in 2011. So, I’m really looking forward to seeing this sequel. Judging by the trailer above Rio 2 is not going to disappoint.
