Flicks for kids — plus 'Muppets Most Wanted' printables

I've been sharing movie reviews on Saturdays for quite some time now — and you won't want to miss tomorrow's! — but those I share on Saturdays are pretty much all adult flicks, no kid fare.

We grandparents enjoy kid fare, too, though... right? For the grandkids, of course.

With that in mind, here are a few movies — one already opened, others opening soon — that you'll likely want to treat the grandchildren to. Perhaps over spring break, perhaps just because.

First up, MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN (rated PG for "some wild action and brief rude humor"), which opened in theaters March 7:

Next, MUPPETS MOST WANTED (rated PG "for some mild action"), opening March 21:


And in celebration of Earth Day, Disneynature's BEARS (rated G), opening in theaters April 18:

Plus, though it's still a ways off — and not really for the little ones — mark your calendars for MALEFICENT (rating TBD), opening in theaters May 30:
