A Wrinkle in Time is visually stunning! In the movie you see Meg flipping an origami paper toy craft with a heart on it. This is a Kaleidocycle Flextangle and I've made one to look like the one in the movie for you to print and play with! Meg's flextangle has a small heart and a big heart as two of the designs. I've also included the “wrinkle” and the “It” on this flextangle to go along with the movie. The Kaleidocycle Flextangle is hand drawn to make it look like the one in the movie so make sure you print it in color! After all, love prevails in the universe!

The movie was beautiful. I couldn't tear my eyes away from all the beautiful costumes and hair. I'm normally one of those people that reads the book before seeing a movie but I haven't in this case. Ava DuVernay brings this interesting story to life and shows every child that no matter their faults, you can find the light inside of you.
As I mentioned earlier, I was so caught up in looking at all the amazing costumes that it was hard to focus on the movie at times. This dress that Mindy Kaling wore has the quotes that she says in the movie printed on them. Her basket weave hair makes me think about how long it took to make.
I love the amazing women they cast for this film. Not just the very talented Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling, but also the wonder Storm Reid. Her transformation on screen was perfection. The moment that she shares with Chris Pine felt so real that I erupted in tears.
Make sure to check out the movie, the kids are going to love it.
