I was a crafty kid, making things whenever possible. Some kids (including my nephew) love Legos, building and re-building structures for hours and some kids are “nature buffs” always digging in dirt and identifying bugs in the backyard. My boys? Film-obsessed and have been ever since they saw their first film at age 3. Movie watching, making, reviewing and all the related trivia is their passion. This film obsession led them to start a movie review blog a couple of years ago and this year to volunteer their time jurying movies for the Providence Children’s Film Festival.
Since seeing movies in a theater is still a big treat and opportunities to watch kid-appropriate films other than Disney or DreamWorks on the big screen are rare, my family eagerly supports the film festival and we are looking forward to this year’s 2012 Providence Children’s Film Festival. Kidoinfo is a proud media sponsor for the third year.
Now that the festival (and school vacation) has begun I am taking some time off from Kidoinfo to volunteer, watch movies with my boys and assist them with their blog. They enjoy being “press kids” at the festival–interviewing children and adults about what they thought of the movies. When not watching films or attending workshops they will be interviewing the audience, staff and directors.

While I am away from Kidoinfo, check the events calendar for things to do and check the Kidoinfo archives full of crafty ideas, recipes, book reviews, fun activities and more!
Hope to see you at the movies!
