Strawberry Shortcake Berry Best Friends- Activity Sheet & #Giveaway #BerryBestFriends

   Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Best Friends

It’s friends first for Strawberry Shortcake and her favorite gal pals in Berry Best Friends! When Orange Blossom’s general store overflows with a new line of fruits and veggies, she tries to handle all of the details without any help from others, and, as a result, she’s exhausted! Strawberry is excited to be building a new marketplace, but has a tough time learning how to graciously say, “no, thank you.”

 Both soon learn that talking about what you need is the berry best thing to do. When the BFFs form a new band called Strawberry and the Sweet Beats, they’re all jazzed to head out on the road...except for Orange, who is afraid to admit that she doesn’t want to leave home. Once she tells her friends how she feels, she’s ready to set out for a rockin’ good time!

This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

Check out the newest trailer here:       
                                                                                                                              
     
Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, “Wicked” producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, “Into the Woods” will be released in theaters Dec. 25, 2014.

Coca-Cola & Walmart Effortless Meals you family will love!

It is time for back to school, time for days filled with learning and evenings filled with homework. As a busy working mom, my day starts early and is jammed packed full from beginning to end. When I get home from work, it is time to get into mom mode, and make dinner, help my daughter with her homework, and more. Sometimes I just need a break, and I need someone to make dinner for me..... Sure I could call and order pizza or pick up fast food, but that can be expensive and it is something I don't really want to do often. What else is there to do for a quick meal that is affordable and my family will love eating? 
 Coca-Cola and Walmart have come together to create “Effortless Meals” for moms through a variety of meal options – take ‘n bake pizza, flavorful sandwiches, and ready-to-serve rotisserie chicken.

But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him.
 He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn't had one.
