The Croods, the world’s very first prehistoric family goes on a road trip to an uncharted and fantastical world on March 22, 2013. The film, directed by Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders stars: Nicolas Cage (Grug), Ryan Reynolds (Guy), Emma Stone (Eep), Catherine Keener (Ugga), Clark Duke (Thunk), and Cloris Leachman (Gran).

To celebrate the release of this animated film, Dreamworks’ has pinned some fun DIY and How-To pins on The Croods Pinterest page. There are so many great activities, downloadables and printables, recipes, and art from the film to choose from, but these are my favorites.
