We received a copy of the movie in order to do this review. All opinions are my own.
We love movies. One of our favorite things to do as a family is having family movie nights. We usually include a special snack/drink and do a craft or play a game. This week our family movie night movie was Rock Dog. We hadn’t seen it before, so my kids couldn’t wait to start it. By the end of the movie, they all looked at me and said “that was amazing”. They loved it. It is a great movie showing kids to not give up on their dreams even when you encounter tough times and it is packed with humor and a great story line. Luke Wilson does a great job as the voice of Bodi.
My kids love music and we are always singing and dancing around while their daddy plays his guitar. My 5 year old asked me if we could make a guitar for her that she could play with so we made a fun Guitar Craft for her and she loves it! We just cut the pattern out on cardboard and then hot glued paper on it. We used brads, gems, and yarn to make the rest of it.
