For this week’s challenge we would like you to work with your adults at home to name as many of these children’s movies as possible! Now for the tricky part – the names are written using emojis so you’ll need to think hard and remember all those movies you’ve watched in the past. Simply write your answers in a list in the comments section for this post.

Good luck and we can’t wait to see you answers.
