4 Things to Do Before Your See Toy Story 4!

That's right, the toys are almost back in town and the "BUZZ" around the movie is huge!  If you haven't been following #ToyStory4 on social media, you have been missing out on a lot of excitement this weekend.  The press junket met at the Walt Disney World Resort for a super advanced screening of the film and a chance to interview the stars - Tim Allen, Tom Hanks, Keanu Reeves, and many, many more.  Let's just say that I've been looking forward to this film since it was announced, and now I'm even more excited.  I mean, check out this trailer!



Did you see that Bo Peep is back and cooler than ever?!? But for those of us that didn't get to hang with Woody, Buzz, and friends this past weekend, we have a few fun things we can do in the days ahead before the movie is released.  Whether you are a 2 or 102, you're always a kid at heart and these activities have the whole family in mind!

1. Build a Forky - So Forky is just one of the new characters from Toy Story 4.  When word of this new character was released, there was a big question - is he even a toy???  Well, if you have little ones like me, we all know that even an empty toilet paper roll can become the coolest toy around so I have no doubt that Forky is going to be a hip addition to the toy crew.  One of the best things about Forky parents - you can make him instead of shelling out money at Target to make one!  Check out this cool tutorial from Patty over at A Mother's Random Thoughts and have fun making this craft with your kids!  Maybe you can even bring Forky to see the movie with you!

2. Visit the Toy Story 4 Summer Road Trip - That's right! Toy Story 4 fun is hitting the road and those of us in the Mid-Atlantic have a few opportunities to join the fun.  The Toy Story 4 Summer Roadtrip is traveling coast-to-coast hitting cities such as Los Angeles, Miami, Denver, Dallas, and Philadelphia.  If you live in the DC / Maryland area, the Road Trip will make it's stop at Silver Spring, MD on Thursday, June 13.  It's open to the public from 10AM - 2PM and can be found in Downtown Silver Spring at 900 Ellsworth Drive.  The Toy Story 4 Summer Road Trip features photo ops, film-themed prizes, carnival games and a lot more family-friendly fun! Keep up on all the fun by following #ToyStory4 #SummerRoadTrip and #GoRVing on social media.

3. Have a Toy Story Marathon - The Toy Story franchise has been around for a long time and it may have been a while since you've checked in on your favorite toys.  Setting up a Toy Story movie marathon is the perfect way to relive the entire adventure from the beginning.  Looking for fun ways to theme the evening?  Try ordering pizza for the family just like Andy visits his favorite hangout Pizza Planet in the original Toy Story.  While you're watching, you can have your kids color and complete some of these FREE downloadable activities.  And don't forget to cap the night off with a super cool dessert.  How about trying this Forky cupcakes that are from Desert Chica over on Pinterest?

4. Disneybound as Toy Story Characters - Anyone who follows me know I love a good Disneybound!  If you're unfamiliar with the term, it's where you take regular everyday clothes, and turn them into something pixie dusted by dressing "inspired" by your favorite character.  Challenge yourself to see if you can pull off some Toy Story inspired Disneybound looks or, better yet, gain some inspiration from my Pinterest board and see if you can get the whole family Disneybounding for your viewing of Toy Story 4 when it opens in theaters.

If this doesn't get you even more pumped up about the release of Toy Story 4, I'm not sure what will! These movies have been some of my favorites featuring heartwarming moments, laugh out loud memories, and, yes, lots of tears (here's looking at you Toy Story 3).  While I haven't seen the film yet, I've heard from many that the ending of this one is the emotional powerhouse we've now come to expect from Toy Story films and that fans are walking away giving these toys two thumbs up!  Toy Story 4 opens everywhere June 21.  Don't forget to follow the social media channels below for the latest updates and information regarding the film!
