The Chipmunks, Chipettes and their caretaker Dave Sevelle (Jason Lee; “My Name is Earl”) embark on a trip of a lifetime aboard the Carnival Dream cruise ship. Seeking fun and excitement, the Chipmunks turn the luxury cruise liner into their own personal playground. But the ultimate vacation quickly becomes a disaster when the Chipmunks, Dave and Carnival cruise pelican mascot, who turns out to be the chipmunks’ old manager, Ian Hawke (David Cross; Megamind), accidentally fall overboard and find themselves ‘Chipwrecked’ on a remote island. Stuck in an unfamiliar territory, the six furry castaways are separated from Dave and must figure out a way to survive on their own for the first time in their lives.

In Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, the Chipmunks and the Chipettes get “chipwrecked” on an island. However, not everyone can afford to have a tropical vacation during spring break. For those not able to leave town, we have some fun and affordable stay-cation ideas for you including, Alvin-themed activity sheets and backyard camping. 


What better way to spend the afternoon than answering some Alvin-themed activity sheets that contain either crossword puzzles, word finds or mazes from your fave chipmunks?  Enjoy it after you watch their new film Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked on DVD or Blu-ray, though you won’t have to be caught up with their new adventures to answer these fun activity sheets.


Who says you have to travel plenty of miles to enjoy some camping adventure?  Backyard camping is a fun, cheap and stress-free alternative to going out into the wild. Just prop your tent, bring some games and snacks and you’re all set.  Want to know the best part? A clean bathroom and your comfy bed are all within steps away should you need them. 


 Nothing says Spring Break than a pool party topped with BBQ.  Easy to organize and not much materials needed, just call up a few friends and family, throw a pool party on a warm weekend and let the fun begin.  Thinking of adding more jazz to the party?  Add a theme like a Hawaiian Luau, Jungle Paradise or “Chipwrecked.”


Slumber parties are the best way to spend a stay-cation. You get to go to a friend’s house, be in your comfy PJs, eat yummy snacks, and stay up all night long.  Need some additional ideas to fill up your slumber party?  Why not watch some fun movies that you and your friends enjoy or have never seen before? Make sure to include Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked on your movie list.
