8 Super-Fun Things You and Your Kids Can Do With 'Lego Movie' on DVD
Pause: ‘The Prophecy’
Morgan Freeman nails the role of Vesuvius, a blind prophet with a long white beard whose predictions must be true because they rhyme.
Play: Rhyme Time
Get your kids into a game of word play by having them create prophecies of their own -- from what’s for dinner tonight to where they’ll go on vacation. They’ll learn what a prophecy is and how to make up awesome rhymes on the fly. Make a list and hang them in your kitchen. We’re guessing the fun won’t stop and you’ll discover some pretty interesting “prophecies.” (Photo: Shutterstock)
Pause: ‘Instructions to Start Your Day’
Chris Pratt (as Emmet) starts his day the manual way, with instructions.
Play: Instructions for Your Kids
What would your kids’ instructions manual look like? Have them make a manual for their day and see the world from their perspective. You might learn a little about your own expectations here. Finish up with some jumping jacks to get them moving. Can your kids out-jumping-jack Emmet? (Photo: Shutterstock)
This time, don’t pause, just crank up the volume and everyone get up to dance because “everything is cool when you’re part of the team!” You know you want to. (Photo: Shutterstock)
Will Ferrell is diabolical as Lord Business, the man who wants to lock every Lego into place with “The Kragl.” Too bad it’s so hard to micromanage humans like Good Cop’s parents. Poor dad can’t follow Lord Business’s orders.
Play: Simon Says Kragl
Test your family’s listening skills with a game of Simon Says and see who would get Kragled first. (Photo: Getty)
Pause: ‘Building a Submarine’
Emmet begins to believe in himself when he helps build the submarine that gets his friends out of harm’s way as Cloud Cuckoo Land explodes. The symbol of Emmet’s new confidence? A rainbow.

Pause: ‘Cloud Cuckoo Land’
Welcome to Cloud Cuckoo Land, where everyone is happy and nothing really makes sense or is consistent. And there’s no harm in that.
Play: Go Crazy
Let your inner cuckoo free and dress in costumes that are completely unique and hilarious. Declare Cloud Cuckoo Land hour for the rest of the movie and let yourselves go! (Photo: Getty)
Pause: ‘1980-Something Technology’
When it’s finally time for the blue astronaut to build a spaceship with 1980-something technology, the little guy’s enthusiasm is priceless.
Play: Box It Up
For parents who grew up in the 1980s, we know spaceships were built from cardboard boxes and aluminum foil. Get out the supplies and build a ship big enough to hold the family on a trip to that yellow orb thing. (Photo: Shutterstock)
