Onward communication challenge

Updated: Oct 11, 2020

Hello Friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful time at home during this lockdown!

Have you watched the new Disney movie Onward? It's a great movie about two brothers that try to use magic to make their father come back to life. Only problem is that their spell only half worked. Their Dad's legs and feet appeared for 24 hours, but not the top half. Oh no!

During the rest of the movie the two brothers frantically run around trying to find a magical stone to bring back the other half. Maybe they succeed...maybe they don't. You will have to watch the movie to find out. But I will say that even if they do succeed they spend most of the movie looking for the magic rick instead of getting to know their Dad who died when they were very young.

Which brings me to my "Onward Communication Challenge...

What if instead of spending the 24 hours searching for the magical rock ... they instead so used their limited time to communicate with their Dad?

We know from the movie that Dad can feel because the older brother plays a game where he pats on his Dad's foot and the Dad responds by tapping back. We can also assume that the father knows how to read and write.

So what ideas do you have for the brothers to communicate with their dad? Please share them with us at or on our Facebook Page. We came up with lots of ideas and will share them with whomever supplies their own answer.
