Tinker Bell and the Neverbeast cupcakes At our home we are all huge Disney fans, our family goes to Disney every year (at least once) and there is not a Disney movie that comes out that my kids are not waiting impatiently to see.  For my daughter Tinker Bell is truly special so when the Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast movie came out we decided to make an event out of it to celebrate!   Of coarse there where cupcakes and we also created some fun printables.  We enjoyed a magical movie night comparitendo en familia and my wife and I where both excited to see that this movie has a wonderful message: teaching kids not to judge a book by it’s cover and highlighting how important it is to get to know people (or Neverbeasts) for who they are.

Most of us have been there: judging someone before we get to know them and missing out on learning their stories.  So we thought that this movie was a great way to start a family conversation about the importance of being open-minded and open-hearted and how we can help our children understand what judgement is and how to prevent jumping to conclusions about who people are without knowing them and how appearances are not a reflection of a person’s heart or personality.

Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast Point out how we all have more similarities than differences.  The world would be a pretty boring place if we all looked the same and dressed the same.  Teach your children to embrace those differences as part of what makes each one of us unique and let them know that inside we are all the same and we want to be understood and loved and we do not want to be judged.

Take advantage of your family’s cultural diversity and roots to introduce your child to other cultures, beliefs and ways of thinking.  My children are very aware of the fact that they where born in Guatemala and that we speak both Spanish and English while most of their classmates don’t.  Knowing about their differences makes it easier for them to be more open minded about other people.

Take every opportunity to teach your child about other cultures, beliefs and ways of living.  It’s easy to think that everyone is or should be like we are so encountering someone that looks different or acts different is sometimes hard to understand, especially for children.  At home we love reading books and watching movies where my children can see examples of other children or characters who are different in every way from differences in abilities to differences in race, religion, sexual orientation or culture.  Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast is the perfect movie to open up the conversation about being open-minded and empathetic.

Expose your children to different cultures and ways of life.  We love to travel and travel is a great way to expose children to different cultures and beliefs: weather we are traveling to Guatemala to visit a los abuelos or exploring the Chinese culture at Epcot learning about other cultures will open your child’s mind.

Watch Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast (Now on Blu-ray, Digital HD & Disney Movies Anywhere ) en familia and let your children be swept away by the magic of Pixie Hollow as they learn the importance of not judging a book by it’s cover and giving everyone a chance!  This movie would make a great Easter and springtime gift!
