With a theater full of toddlers, kids, and their parents, I started to think about the possibilities of continuing learning about those countries while at home. There was even a scene where a character was raking a zen garden. This is pretty easy to duplicate at home. Just use some sand or white rice and grab some rocks from outside. Then use a fork to rake various patterns.
Hats off to the makers of Cars 2 for incorporating geography education in a movie that is sure to be played over and over again in family rooms across the world!
