Family Movie Night: Finding Nemo

He's cute. He's friendly. He's Brave!! Sure, there are plenty of fish in the sea, but we chose to have our fun family adventure inspired by the one and only Nemo. Disney's Finding Nemo is a darling movie about a spunky little fish who just wants to explore the world around him. His very loving, but sometimes over-protective dad, Marlin, just wants to keep Nemo safe. One day, while out on a school field trip, Nemo is scooped up and taken far away. His dad sets out on a wild rescue mission to find his son.

We started today's adventures with a trip to the aquarium where we met all sorts of sea creature.
We saw beautiful fish, (can you spot Nemo or Marlin?)

We loved the shark tank. It was so awesome walking beneath sharks and other sea creatures.

and Mr. Ray the stingray.
Look! He's smiling!

We even saw a few Darlas. . .  

After we'd seen all the aquarium had to offer, we had a little lunch. How cute are these PB&J sandwiches cut to look like oysters! We loved the goldfish crackers and clementine sea snake, too. Delish!

We read a few fishy books like One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish (Dr. Seuss), The Rainbow Fish (Marcus Pfister) and The Pout-Pout Fish (Deborah Diesen).

Pretty soon my little underwater adventurers were tired. After splashing in the bath and getting all cozy in our jammies, we turned on Finding Nemo, our hero of the night and snacked on Sweedish Fish. It was the perfect ending to a fantastic day! 

A few other ideas to tie into out undersea activities:
Watch Disney's Finding Dory
Build paper or wooden boats (butts)
