Disney’s The Secret World of Arrietty released on DVD today.  To celebrate I have a packet of fun activities and coloring sheets to share with you from Disney.  You can download them for free here.

The Secret World of Arrietty

The Secret World of Arrietty (AIR-ee-ett-ee) is based on the children’s book series The Borrowers. It’s the story of Arrietty, a tiny 14-year old who lives hidden with her parents in the recesses of a suburban garden home.  Her family generally keeps to themselves except for when Arrietty sneaks out of the floorboards to “borrow” scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts.  One evening, a young human boy named Shawn finds Arrietty and her family and a secret friendship blossoms.  If discovered, however, their relationship could drive the little family from the home and straight into danger.

I didn’t have the opportunity to see this in theaters, so I’m looking forward to picking up a copy this weekend to add to my Disney DVD/Blu-Ray library. If you already saw it, what are your thoughts?
