When Colton and I went to the movies recently, the trailer for The Nut Job was played in the previews. Colton and I looked at each other and agreed that we will have to see it!
In theaters January 17th, The Nut Job looks like it will become a family favorite with lots of action and laughs. When a new nut shop moves into town, a squirrel rounds up a crew of animal friends to steal nuts to survive for the long winter. They face many obstacles, but do they succeed in the end?
WILL ARNETT, BRENDAN FRASER with LIAM NEESON and KATHERINE HEIGL are supplying their voices to the characters of the film so you know it’s going to be good!
In honor of The Nut Job, I wanted to share a “nutty” snack for the kids- homemade party-mix! You can bags of these in any grocery store, but homemade is best and healthier!
