Movie Inspired Crafts: Harold & Maude

If you’re ever feeling down about anything, make yourself a huge bowl of popcorn and watch Harold and Maude. Seriously, it does the trick every time. Maude (played by Ruth Gordon) has such a zest for life that it’s contagious–plus a bowl of  popcorn never hurts. And if you don’t have 91 minutes to spare, the soundtrack is equally as good. So whether you watch or listen while you make the following movie inspired crafts, just make sure you’re having fun :)

To persuade you even more, here is one of my favorite lines from the movie:

A lot of people enjoy being dead. But they are not dead, really. They’re just backing away from life. Reach out. Take a chance. Get hurt even. But play as well as you can. Go team, go! Give me an L. Give me an I. Give me a V. Give me an E. L-I-V-E. LIVE! Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room.

    Harold and Maude is my all time favorite movie. I might have to watch this later today; it’s perfect weather for this movie. “If you want to sing out, sing out…”
