I’ve got news!
As if new printable activity sheets AND a sweepstakes to win a family vacation to Disney Aulani wasn’t exciting enough….I’ve got news!
In less than 3 weeks, I’ll be heading to Los Angeles to attend a press junket for Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day as well as the chance to interview Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Ed Oxenbould, Dylan Minnette, Kerris Dorsey and Bella Thorne. We’ll also be taking an exclusive tour of Walt Disney’s former Los Feliz residence and discover the filmmaking process behind SLEEPING BEAUTY and MALEFICENT, as well as attend a special advance screening of STAR WARS REBELS: SPARK OF REBELLION and more! Yep. I’m pretty excited. Just to be clear, this is an all-expense paid press trip, including travel, accommodations, and activities, but excitement and opinions are always my own.
But back to the present. I LOVE free printables for the kids. I know that your kids will enjoy these activities (don’t forget to check out the previous activities I posted for Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, too!).

About the movie:
Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. 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.
The book “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” (one of my childhood favorites!) published in 1972, was written by Judith Viorst, illustrated by Ray Cruz and inspired by Viorst’s sons Alexander, Anthony and Nicholas. With more than 2 million copies in print, it became an ALA Notable Children’s Book and won a George G. Stone Center Recognition of Merit, a Georgia Children’s Book Award, and distinction as a Reading Rainbow book. Viorst penned the sequels: “Alexander, Who Used to be Rich Last Sunday” (1978) and “Alexander, Who’s Not (Do You Hear Me? I Mean It!) Going to Move” (1995).
