I remember watching it as a little girl, wishing I were Belle. I mean, c’mon…she gets that HUGE library…as a gift! Oh, the jealousy I had watching her swing on library ladders, with her nose stuck in a book. And the “Be Our Guest” scene? It’s so much fun! What kid WOULDN’T love that scene?

Now there are two Disney versions to show your kids: the animated classic AND the newer live-action version. I love them both! We did this activity after watching the Emma Watson one, but it will work with either!

Activity

You know the line: “Try the grey stuff, it’s delicious”? Well, why not make it with your kids! It’s super simple to make and only takes a few minutes. I know, it looks pretty scary, but trust me–it really is delicious!

Supplies

  • 1 small tub of Cool Whip
  • 1 small package Instant Vanilla Pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 18 Oreos
  • 5 teaspoons Instant Chocolate Pudding mix

Directions

  1. Combine milk and vanilla pudding mix. Whisk together until thoroughly mixed.
  2. Refrigerate for ten minutes.
  3. Fold the Cool Whip into the pudding mixture.
  4. Crush Oreos (a food processor works great or put them in a Ziploc bag, then let the kids crush them with a rolling pin).
  5. Add the Oreos and the chocolate pudding mix, then combine well.
  6. Refrigerate for one hour.
  7. Serve!

***Note: This is VERY rich, so keep that in mind when you dish up portions.
