Craft Time: Toy Story LGM Easter Egg



Toy Story LGM Easter Egg Template PDF
Time: 40 Minutes

What You’ll Need

  • Hard-boiled eggs dyed alien green (using Easter egg dye or gel food coloring) or plastic eggs of a similar size and color
  • Scissors
  • Craft paper (green, blue, and purple)
  • Toilet tissue tubes or paper towel tube
  • Paper hole punch
  • Glue stick
  • Glue dots
  • Fine-tipped black marker

How To Make It

  1. Print the template and use it to cut out a pair of green paper ears for each alien. Fold the ears in half to create a center crease, as shown.
  2. Fashion an antenna for each alien by first folding a 3-inch long thin strip of green paper in half and gluing the two sides together, stopping 1/8-inch from the ends. Then fold the ends out to the sides, as shown.
  3. Next, use the paper hole punch to create two green dots and glue them together, sandwiching the top of the antenna between them.
  4. Create a stand for each egg by wrapping blue paper around a section of a toilet tissue or paper towel tube and securing the overlapped edges with glue. Add a thin strip of purple paper around the top of the tube for a collar.
  5. Set the eggs sideways atop their stands. Use glue dots to attach the ears and antennae. Add three eyes to each egg, placing the center one slightly higher than the other two.
  6. For the finishing touch, draw a wide smile on each alien (this is easier to do if you remove the egg from the stand and hold it in one hand while drawing with the other).

Craft Time: Daisy Duck Easter Candy Box



Daisy Duck Easter Candy Box PDF
Time: 20 Minutes

What You’ll Need

  • Regular paper or cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Glue or tape

How To Make It

  1. Use scissors or a craft knife to cut out Daisy’s body and each of her arms. Do not cut along dashed lines in the body or arms — these lines are where you will fold the paper.
  2. Take Daisy’s body and make all of the folds along the dashed lines for the body and the tabs. Make each fold away from you except for Daisy’s legs. For Daisy’s legs, fold the top dashed line toward you and the bottom dashed line away from you. This will help Daisy sit on the edge of a table or shelf.
  3. Glue the tabs to the inside of Daisy’s body. Follow the curve of Daisy’s waist. The glued tabs will create an open box on Daisy’s back.
  4. Fold each of Daisy’s arms in half along the dashed line and glue the two sides together. Be careful to not get glue on the outer tabs of the arms. Fold those outward and use them as a base to attach the arms to Daisy’s body.
  5. For the left arm, cut the cover of the candy box (that says “Happy Valentine’s Day”) out and fold the tab on it away from you. Glue the tab to the space provided on the hand, being careful to glue only the tab so that the box top flaps open. Once the pieces have dried, glue the picture of chocolates to the light pink inside of the box in Daisy’s hand so the candies appear to be inside the box when you lift the top flap.
  6. Glue each arm to Daisy’s sides.
  7. Drop a few pieces of candy into the box formed on Daisy’s back and make a special delivery!

  2. To put Thumper’s body together, fold each dashed line away from you. Glue each A tab to the white side of the panel to its right (it will form a cone shape). Glue the end panels together by gluing tabs B to the white side of the opposite panel.
  3. Tuck and glue the C tabs to the inside of Thumper’s head to close off the top. Tuck and glue the D tabs to the inside of Thumper’s head to close off the bottom.

  5. Fold and glue Thumper’s ears in half so the design is now two-sided. Use the tab at the end of the ears to glue the ears to the top of Thumper’s head. Make sure the pink part of the ears is in front.
  6. Fold and glue Thumper’s tail in half so the design is now two-sided. Use the tab at the end of the tail to glue it to the middle part of Thumper’s backside. Make sure the tail doesn’t hang down lower than the backside or Thumper won’t sit flat on a table.

DISNEY+ HONORS EARTH MONTH WITH NEW DISNEYNATURE FILMS DEBUTING ON APRIL 3


DISNEY+ HONORS EARTH MONTH WITH
NEW DISNEYNATURE FILMS DEBUTING ON APRIL 3

Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex Lends Voice to  “Elephant”

Academy Award® Winner Natalie Portman Narrates “Dolphin Reef”

April Earth Day-Themed Collection on Disney+ To Also Feature Titles From National Geographic and Disneynature


BURBANK, Calif. (March 26, 2020) – In recognition of Earth Month, Disney+ announced today the Disneynature film “Elephant,” narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, will premiere on April alongside previously announced “Dolphin Reef,” with narration by Academy Award®-winning actress Natalie Portman. Following its theatrical release last year, the Disneynature film “Penguins” will also make it’s Disney+ debut on April 3.

The Earth Month collection on Disney+ will also contain additional Disneynature titles premiering on the service on April 3 including “In the Footsteps of Elephant,” “A Life on the Edge” and “Diving with Dolphins” which give viewers behind-the-scenes access into the unique filmmaking process of all three films.

These captivating films will join an already robust collection of animal and nature titles highlighted throughout the month including National Geographic’s “America’s National Parks,” “Wild Yellowstone,” “The Flood,” “JANE,” “Before the Floods,” “Planet of the Birds,” “Sea of Hope: America’s Underwater Treasures,” “Kingdom of the White Wolf,” “Tree Climbing Lions,” Hostile Planet” and “Wild Russia.”

Directed by Mark Linfield, co-directed by Vanessa Berlowitz and Alastair Fothergill, and produced by Mark Linfield, Vanessa Berlowitz and Roy Conli, “Elephant” follows African elephant Shani and her spirited son Jomo as their herd make an epic journey hundreds of miles across the vast Kalahari Desert. Led by their great matriarch, Gaia, the family faces brutal heat, dwindling resources and persistent predators, as they follow in their ancestor’s footsteps on a quest to reach a lush, green paradise.

In recognition of “Elephant,” Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund are supporting Elephants Without Borders, an organization working in Botswana to ensure people and elephants thrive.  Elephants Without Borders is working on strategies to protect Botswana’s elephant haven, helping to reduce human-wildlife conflict through education, economic development, and solutions that either redirect elephant migration away from people, or provide communities with tools that help to protect themselves and their properties when elephants are nearby.

“Dolphin Reef” dives under the sea to frolic with some of the planet’s most engaging animals: dolphins. Created with Disneynature’s signature storytelling style, the film introduces Echo, a young Pacific bottlenose dolphin who can’t quite decide if it’s time to grow up and take on new responsibilities. Dolphin society is tricky, and the coral reef that Echo and his family call home depends on all of its inhabitants to keep it healthy. But Echo has a tough time resisting the many adventures the ocean has to offer. Keith Scholey, who directed Disneynature’s “Bears,” helms the film.

Disney has a long history of supporting oceans and marine life around the world. Grants from the Disney Conservation Fund and expertise from Disney Conservation Team Wildlife have helped leading conservation organizations and communities to establish coral nurseries to help to re-grow their damaged reefs, build fisheries that save fish and provide local job opportunities, rescue stranded dolphins, and inspire children to explore and protect coastlines, reefs and other marine habitats.

Craft Time: Elsa Papercraft


Elsa Papercraft PDF File

Time: 20 Minutes

What You’ll Need

  • Regular paper or cardstock
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Glue or double-sided tape

How To Make It

  1. Print the template on regular paper or cardstock. Cut out each piece with a craft knife or scissors.
  2. Do not cut along the dashed lines — this is where you will fold the paper.
  3. Line up Elsa’s back with her torso and glue them together so the design is two-sided. After the glue has dried, fold the bottom part of Elsa’s torso towards you along the blue dashed line. Then, fold Elsa’s face away from you along the gold line across her shoulders.
  4. Take Elsa’s chest piece and fold along each dashed line. Make each fold away from you. Glue the G tab and F tab to the back, white side of Elsa’s chest.
  5. Spread glue on the H tab of Elsa’s chest and press it into place on the H area on Elsa’s torso. Make sure her shoulders are lined up correctly.
  6. After the glue dries, add glue to the I, J, K, and L tabs and press them into place. Hold the pieces together until the glue dries. You may need to use a pen or pencil inside her chest area to position the tabs just right.
  7. Fold each of Elsa’s arms and glue them so the design is two-sided. Make sure they are lined up before the glue dries. Attach the arms to each side of Elsa’s body under each shoulder by gluing the E tab to the E area and D tab to the D area.
  8. Cut slits in the top of the skirt along the white lines, opposite of where you fold each A tab. Fold each of the dashed lines at the top of the skirt and each A tab away from you. Starting from left to right with the purple side of the skirt facing you, glue each A tab to the back of the skirt piece next to it to create pleats.
  9. When you are finished gluing the A tabs you may find it easier to glue the C tab to the inside of the skirt before gluing the final B tab pleat.
  10. Attach Elsa’s completed torso to her skirt by gluing the white side of the tabs at her waist to the top of the skirt over the areas labeled M and N. The crease on the skirt should be in the back.
  11. Lastly, you can add Elsa’s sparkly cape by using blue glitter tulle about 9 inches long and 5 inches wide. Cut the tulle into the shape of a balloon with one end 2 inches wide, and the other end 5 inches wide, keeping it 9 inches long from one end to the other. Glue the edges of the 2 inch end around the top edge of her dress along her back and sides under the arms.
