Kid's Korner -Maleficent Activities For the Entire Family

Once upon a time, a Queen in a far off land gave birth to a beautiful daughter.  To celebrate the birth, the Queen invited all of the fairies of the kingdom to the christening of the baby, but alas, one fairy was forgotten. Terribly hurt, and not willing to be left out, the forgotten fairy made her presence and her anger known, and as she passed by the cradle of the Queen’s daughter, she placed a curse on the infant.  “When you are sixteen, you will injure yourself on a spindle and die.”  Horrified, a good fairy quickly chanted a magic spell to spare the child and changed her fate of death to a fate of deep sleep and thus the fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent was born. Opening nationwide this Friday, May 30, "Maleficent" explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty" and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever. 
This week, to celebrate the opening of “Maleficent”, Kid’s Korner is bringing to you fun and easy to use activities that can be used by young and the young at heart alike.
