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!

If YOU would like to teach your kids some fun Scottish words and phrases, check out the list below! It may be a bunch of jiggery pokery, but I guarantee you’ll have a laugh!

BUNCH OF GALOOTS

Many fools

  • galoot = clumsy, oafish person

DREADFUL COLLYWOBBLES

Unwanted stomachache or a bad case of the nerves

  • collywobbles = upset stomach; intestinal disturbances or a feeling of apprehension

JIGGERY POKERY

Nonsense

JINGS CRIVENS HELP MA BOAB

Oh my!

Exclamation of bewilderment or exasperation

LASS

Girl

LAD

Boy

MICHTY ME

Wow! Holy cow!

An exclamation of surprise, shock or being overwhelmed

NUMPTY

Useless individual

If you want to learn even more Scottish terms, check out the Brave Scottish Glossary!

If speaking like the Scottish isn’t enough to get you ready to go see Brave in theaters, you may  just need to dance. Get ready to get down Highlands style!

If you’re feeling like a true Scot, or even if you’re not, you only have a few more weeks left to wait until Brave opens in theaters everywhere! Don’t miss out! Have fun introducing a little of the Scottish culture into your house this week! Michty me, you’re awesome!
