Alvin & The Chipmunks: Decoy Chipmunks Craft

I had the chance to see the new Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Road Chip movie earlier this week with my husband and kiddos, which opens in theaters today. It was a fun movie for my 7 year old, who was falling-out-of-his-chair laughing at several points during the movie. My youngest was cranky, and not able to focus on a movie with a mature story line that included parents dating, and running away from home. But he still enjoyed several of the active scenes in the movie. The basic storyline of Alvin and the Chimpmunks: The Road Chip, includes the Chipmunks disobeying Dave to take a trip across the country. But of course, they have to trick the babysitter into thinking they’re still at home. I don’t approve of their method, and think these Decoy Chipmunks would have worked much better – and I was able to whip up all three in less than 30 minutes!
