Willy Wonka Fun
A few weeks ago I read Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to Gerrick. He liked it a lot, and even added it to his wishlist. (We read a library copy.)
Last week we watched the 70's movie with Gene Wilder, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Gerrick enjoyed it, and he particularly liked the Oompa Loompa songs (which I really didn't do justice in the reading). I was so proud when he told me that he liked the movie, but he liked the book better. :)
This afternoon we watched the latest Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie in which Johnny Depp played the role of Wonka. It was really interesting to listen to Gerrick make comparisons throughout the movie. I had to hold the remote and just keep my finger on the pause button, because he wanted to talk SO much. :) We also talked about Johnny Depp being the actor who also played Jack Sparrow in The Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
In honor of Wonka's chocolate factory we made chocolate pudding today.
We also made a playlist of songs from both movies. Click here to listen to it.
