Muppets Most Wanted! Paper Puppet Craft + Movie Review

The next big thing - the Muppets' new movie Muppets Most Wanted has hit theatres everywhere!

I had the chance to attend a pre-screening a short time before the movie opened, which was pretty exciting!

Movie Synopsis:
Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais.

The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.

My thoughts: 
If you're a Muppets fan, you'll really seeing all those goofy Muppets back on stage putting on a show!

I appreciated that the movie definitely was clean, without even any potty-talk I often see in kid movies today. The characters are hilarious as usual!! There's your typical Muppet-antics going on, and the eternal love affair between Piggy and Kermie which we all enjoyed!

I did think it ran a bit long for the younger crowd (nearly 2 hours long), and some of the pop culture references I didn't even catch so I'm sure they'd be over the little kids' heads. But besides that, there's plenty of giggles for everyone, and the kids I sat with enjoyed the show!

Muppet Craft!
And now, a craft for you to do with the kids either before or after going to see Muppets Most Wanted!!

This Muppets Paper Bag Puppet Craft is easy to do and kids can have a lot of fun trying different looks for their character! Would make a great Muppet Party activity! (Click here to get the full PDF for printing!)

Are you a Muppets fan? Have you seen this new movie yet!? It's in theatres now!!!

I was provided free admission to the prescreening event in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own!

The Swaddling Clothes By Amber Schamel

About the Book

Through the ages, many stories have been told about Mary, Joseph and the birth of the Messiah. Stories of shepherds and sheep, kings, angels, and stables. But there is one story that has never been told. One story that has remained hidden in the fabric of time. The story of The Swaddling Clothes. Mentioned not once, but several times in the Scriptural text, what is the significance of these special cloths? And how did they make their way into a stable in Bethlehem? From the author that brought you the Days of Messiah series comes a whole new adventure critics are calling "intriguing...thought provoking... a fresh twist on an age old story." "I get tired of Bible stories sometimes, but The Swaddling Clothes brings the story to life." "Heartwarming... truly inspired. A story you will want to read again and again. Rich details and a suspenseful plot will keep you reading while giving you a glimpse of God's wonderful power and His amazing love."

Adobe Photoshop PDF
The Vineyard Fray
By Ben Kniskern

About the Book:

What happens to a nation that rebels against its Creator? In the middle eastern land known as the Vineyard, time seems to pass unaffected by the people’s growing rebellion. Their bountiful, prosperous life suddenly changes when the Owner of the Vineyard decides He’s had enough. In the midst of chaos and war, several individuals who are loyal to the Owner must band together to save their kingdom. Follow this unlikely group of heroes as they encounter mysterious messengers, battle against ruthless enemies and endeavor to turn the hearts of the people back to the One who created them.
“Great book. Struggles of real life, history and faith—what more could you want?”
2nd Book:
Which God Should I Choose?
By Ben Kniskern

About the Book:

The question isn't "Is there a God" so much as "Which God should I choose?" With so many choices available, how can we ever be sure we are choosing the right one? This book takes a closer look at some of the more prevalent and popular gods of today to see how they stack up against the qualities a real God should possess. The author's goal is to help you or someone you are concerned about make an educated decision when faced with the question, "Which God should I choose?"
"Ben's book presented so many different beliefs in an informative and simple way so that whoever picked up the book could understand."
3rd Book:
Should I Get My Baby Baptized?
By Ben Kniskern

About the Book:

Having a child makes you a parent, and parents-in God's eyes-are responsible for training their child in the teachings of the Lord. This book first helps you understand God's teaching on the subject of baptism, and then moves on from there to share proven Christian child raising techniques that will help you raise a child that will bring you joy as a parent. "Read as a book of ideas for a great parent-child relationship and child raising, this book is a good read for any parent." All three of Ben Kniskern's books are designed to heighten the reader's spiritual awareness and strengthen their walk with the God who created them.
Ben Kniskern was born on November 25, 1954 in Albany, New York. He was raised nearby in Delmar, where he graduated from Bethlehem Central High School in 1972. Over the past eighteen years, Ben has ministered in the lives of many individuals ranging from children to adults.
