3 Tips to Bring Story Books to Life with Netflix, Crafts and Recipes!
1. Check out Netflix’s Great Titles Based on Kids Books on Netflix, for kids of all ages. On the go or snuggling on the couch at home, families can watch storybook pages come to life, anytime, anywhere with Netflix.
#2. Bring the experience of the book and NETFLIX movie to life via a Book-Covered Letters CRAFT project!
KLSCrafts.com designed an easy craft that you can do with your family before or after you read the book and watch the movie on Netflix.com
Materials you’ll need:
Craft block letters (available at Joann Fabrics or Hobby Lobby)
White craft paint
Photocopied pages from your favorite book
How to do it:
Photocopy your favorite images from the pages of your favorite book at an office supply store or with your home printer. (If the images are too big or too small for the craft letters, reduce or enlarge the size of the images.) Paint your craft block letters with 2-3 coats of white paint. Let dry.
Cut out your images from the photocopies and arrange them on the letters exactly how you want them to look. One idea is to tell the book’s story with pictures or words on your craft letters, or you can just place your favorite images anyway you like on the letters.
Then, using the foam brush, spread Mod Podge on the back of each image and place them on the letter. Wrap any paper ends that extend outsider the letter tops around the letter sides and unto the back, if necessary. Once you have glued all of the images where you like them, spread Mod Podge over the entire top and sides of each letter. Then Let dry completely.
#3 Create a Recipe inspired by the book/ Netflix movie you have watched/read! Whip up a Mini Peach Pie Pockets with Cinnamon Whipped Cream!
Inspired by James and the Giant Peach, enjoy a delicious mini peach pie pocket as you watch this Roald Dahl classic- and the incredible Always Order Dessert shows you how!
Movie Treats: Mini Peach Pie Pockets
This month’s movie snack was inspired by one of my other favorites on the list–the Roald Dahl classic James and the Giant Peach! These individual Mini Peach Pie Pockets are super simple to make, and are perfect for enjoying while watching James get carried away on one adventure after another.
Starting with a flaky, buttery pie crust (I include a recipe below, but you can also start with a store-bought crust), the mini hand pies are stuffed with a totally no-fuss filling made with sweet diced canned peaches (in season all year long!) and just a touch of cinnamon for that perfect Fall touch.
Cut into mini rounds, they’re perfect for little hands. And with no messy cutting, forks or plates required, the whole family will be able to eat and enjoy without missing a single scene.
Enjoy the show!
