Every season the ants on Ant Island are expected to give Hopper and his gang of thug grasshoppers a tribute of grain. But the whole ant colony is in trouble when one ant, Flik, accidentally knocks the grain over before the grasshoppers arrive. With the fate of Ant Island on the line, Flik enlists a gang of misfit bugs to defend the colony upon the grasshoppers return. A Bug's Life is a thrilling adventure that showcases what friends can do when they come together.
Tie-in Activity: When you and your child are out in the yard, see if you can locate an ant hill. Watch the ants as they go about doing their daily chores.
Try making a miniature ant farm with an older child. Find a glass jar and poke some holes in the screw-top cap. Put some leaves and sticks in the jar. Search for ants (the bigger the better) with your child and put them in the jar. Screw on the lid and let the fun begin. Don't forget to release the ants back into the wild when you're through.
