Disney/Pixar’s upcoming film, Brave is coming to theaters on June 22nd! (Just a few weeks away!) To get ready for this sure-to-be-classic family film, I wanted to share a few fun activities you can share with your kids. Brave is set in Scotland, and we wanted to share some of the words from the Brave Scottish Glossary! My kids and I had a TON of fun with these, and I’m sure your kids will shout, “Michty me!” after you’ve shared these words and phrases with them!
Check out Hannah and Henry speaking like “true” Scots!
