“The work of Walt Disney opens up magical worlds and are truly fascinating. It has been over 50 years since Walt Disney left us but the company still lives and offers us the same magic. Walt Disney has left us a spark of his work and it is still being made. His legacy was left in Presidio, CA in a museum about his life known as The Walt Disney Family Museum. This is a place where much of his Work, Awards, and Franchise stands. It is owned by his own family and the collection includes his Snow White to Mickey Mouse, and Alice to Dumbo. Here you will find his original art from his best works from comics to television to films, it’s all here. What we saw was the complete Pinocchio collection which was very impressive. We saw art for scenes like The Whale and The Caged Pinocchio. Walt Disney was born in the year of 1901 and died in the year of 1966 because of lung cancer due to his heavy smoking.
Disney was the third company he started. The first one lasted a couple months and the second one lasted a couple years. Only Disney still stands, Its first film was Snow White. Walt Disney set the world record of the most Awards won by a single person. He never saw Disney World, his last project. He was part of The Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, this was a group dedicated to a brighter future. It inspired Tomorrow Land, 2015. It is a theme park or at least part of one. The project didn’t go as planed but still stands. Disney had much criticism for his work, such as Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland. He was accused of many things, but grief fell on many when his death came. He lived 10 days into Retirement. ” written by my son Peter.
Have you ever wanted to animate your own cartoon? Well, it’s super easy to do and this is a perfect activity for a rainy and cold day. What you need is a big box, paper ( we used the back side of leftover Christmas paper wrap), tape, two wooden craft sticks, crayons, and your imagination.
First you want to tape up the box. Then cut the front of the box out. Place two holes on the opposite sides of the box. You can pant the outside of the box if you would like to. Have children draw on the long piece of paper. Once done, tape the beginning of the paper to the wooden craft stick. Then turn the stick and stop until the end on the paper reaches the second stick and tape it. Rewind back to the beginning and start your film.
My kids made a film called “The Red Balloon”. Watch the video below to see the film.
