Rock Dog Movie Premiere and a Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Lionsgate.

A few years ago my nephew visited and asked where I kept my dog. I told him I didn’t have one, and he quickly let me know I was wasting my adulthood. I think he was onto something, but until I move out of my “no dogs allowed” apartment building in Manhattan, I have to get my puppy fix (not to be confused with “puppy fixed,” because those are two VERY different things) elsewhere.

That’s why I’m looking forward to the February 24th release of Rock Dog. It’s a movie about a Tibetan Mastiff who finds a radio and leaves home to fulfill his dream of becoming a musician, but quickly sets in motion a series of unexpected events.

I’m such a sucker for movies that encourage kids to chase their dreams! Today’s Mama wants you to chase your dreams all the way to the theater. That’s why we’re giving away a Rock Dog movie prize pack that includes a $100 Visa gift card to see the film in theaters with your family, as well as a Rock Dog beanie, tambourine, and temporary tattoo.

Rock Dog Movie Giveaway

You’re sure to recognize and love the Rock Dog movie cast. Luke Wilson takes the lead, with Eddie Izzard, J.K. Simmons, Lewis Black, Kenan Thompson, Mae Whitman, Jorge Garcia, Matt Dillon, and Sam Elliott all lending their voices. I can’t wait to see them do their thing on the big screen on February 24th!

Zendoodle Christmas Coloring Pages

Look. I’ve got about six dozen ADORABLE holiday crafts pinned to my “Christmas FTW” board on Pinterest. But I’ve finally come to an extraordinary place of clarity where I’ve realized that I’m not crafty.

At all.

Oh, I’ve tried. (How I’ve tried.) There are a handful of the most abominable “ornaments” that we hang on our tree every year. Some crazy recipe that includes a truck load of cornstarch and glue. It was a nightmare.

But coloring?! Oh heck yes. Sign us up. Some fun coloring pages, a table full of crayons, colored pencils, and markers married with a batch of hot cocoa? BOOM. Holiday magic.

I excel at family activities that allow me to also partake in the enjoyment.

So, I hope you will follow my lead and pour yourself a cup of cocoa and impress your kiddos with your mad coloring skills.

Here, use our Zendoodle Christmas Coloring Pages…

Zendoodle Christmas Coloring Pages

The christmas tree, candy canes, and gingerbread man coloring pages come in two versions. One is already filled with Zendoodle marks that you can add to and color in. (Get ready to add some serious chill to your holiday hustle.) The other offers a blank christmas tree, blank candy canes, and blank gingerbread man that you can customize to your hearts content.

New to Zendoodling? Use the blank shapes and consider these tips:

  1. Use cardstock or heavy paper with extra paper underneath so marker doesn’t go through
  2. Doodle different patterns into each quadrant. Start with a pencil if you want, but draw very lightly.
  3. Use two sizes of black marker (ie. Sharpie Fine Point and Sharpie Extra Fine Point) for the final doodles.
  4. Each time you make a new shape, let that shape be doodled into. (A big polka dot is really a circle that can be filled with its own doodles.)
  5. Try some holiday doodles! Snowflakes, stars, santa hats, candy cane stripes, etc.
  6. Try to vary texture, size, and value of the doodles. (Ie. If one shape is fairly light and has a lot of white space, the shape next to it can have more concentrated doodles or darker doodles.)
  7. Let the ink dry for at least 5 minutes before erasing pencil lines.

Zendoodle Thanksgiving Coloring Pages

I’m a big fan of hitting two birds with one stone. In this case the “birds” in question are my adult AND child Thanksgiving dinner guests.

No. I’m not actually going to throw rocks at them. Well, not the kids, at least. We’ll just have to see how the adults behave.

I’m kidding! (Or…AM I?)

Every member of my Thanksgiving party crew will be able to grab a colored pencil or crayon and enjoy these Zendoodle Thanksgiving Coloring Pages. With pumpkins, turkey feathers, and leaves, it will be a toss up to see which group (adults versus kids) can come up with the most lovely creations.

Zendoodle Thanksgiving Coloring Pages

I might spend my time writing all of the things I’m grateful for this year among the tiny lines and swirls of the leaves. I might not wait until Thanksgiving, now that I’ve thought of it…

The pumpkin, leaf, and feather coloring pages come in two versions. One is already filled with Zendoodle marks that you can add to and color in. (Get ready for inner peace.) The other offers a blank pumpkin, blank leaf, and blank feather that you can customize to your hearts content.

Zendoodle Halloween Coloring Pages

Want to add a little zen-like spooky fun to your Halloween festivities? Do you have a kiddo that BEGS for those fancy, intricate coloring books every time you go to Costco?

No? Just my kids?

I find that hard to believe.

Since our Easter Egg Zendoodles are crazy popular during the springtime, we thought it only fitting to ask our rockstar designer, Juliann, whip up another batch of Zendoodles for autumn.
