DisneyNature's Wings of Life

In time for Earth Day, DisneyNature unveiled its latest film, "Wings of Life". “Wings of Life,” is a spectacular, closer-than-close, high-definition look at the intricate world of butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and bats and their life-sustaining collaboration with flowers. Directed by Louie Schwartzberg and narrated by Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep "Wings of Nature" is a must see!

We started to watch the movie with the kiddos and then they lost interest. I think 4 is definitely a little young for this film, however for us adults, it was absolutely breathtaking.

Meryl Streep was the perfect narrator for this film, her voice truly is amazing and matches the beauty of the animals.  Plus, she's Meryl Streep.

There are so many great moments in the film, whether you are watching mother bats feed on fruit with their babies attached, or seeing a location that is covered in butterflies as far as the eye can see, you are sure to be captivated from start to finish.

To coincide with the release of "Wings of Life" and to celebrate Earth Day, has 10 kid-friendly activities that you and your children can do.

I may try to watch the film again with the kids and attempt these crafts with them. I wonder if doing the crafts while watching them on the screen will help them learn more?

Disney also has a bunch of printable activities for you to use for the film and to help celebrate Earth Day.

All in all, I love this film, as I have the past few DisneyNature films. I am always impressed with the detail in these films and "Wings of Life" took it one step further.

I hope you have a chance to check out "Wings of Life" and have a fantastic Earth Day!
