I actually did see those two posts a few days ago. I was hoping for more ideas as there seems to be many for other movies. I guess ratatouille isnt as popular.

We are going to do Cinderella this weekend! We are going to the pumpkin patch on Saturday, so I thought that would be a nice tie-in. We'll probably decorate our pumpkins as our activity. I wonder if I could find pumpkin ravioli at the grocery store? For dessert we could have chocolate mice (chocolate-covered strawberries with almond sliver ears.)

Thank you all so much for the wonderful ideas! For Christmas this year, I am going to purchase the supplies, decor, and print menus/recipe cards. Then, I am going to put them into boxes. Instant Disney movie night party boxes as gifts for DD12! She loves family movie nights, but I have a hard time remembering to buy the decor and stuff in advance. This will allow her to plan the parties, and I won't have to do any last minute decorating!

Stop and spray the pesky bugs here.



'Corny' jokes were all over the course. The kids didn't get them all, but the grown-ups got a chuckle, and there was some rolling of the eyes.









If Bella (just turned 3) couldn't make the shot, she just put in the hole/bucket/whatever.



Consulting on a crucial shot.



You can tell by the decorations this was a pro level course.



Micah was happy to throw the pumpkins around the pumpkin patch.



He tried his best to pick up the watermelon.



It was a fun evening for all of the little ones.

love the game ideas

So, this past Saturday was our Aladdin movie night. This was, by far, our hardest movie night...because two out of three of our children were sick. My BFF and her family were supposed to join us, but we didn't want to risk sharing our illness with her kids, so we went it alone.

The invitation:


The decorations weren't what I had planned, but I was unable to find key elements needed for my plan ...so I had to make do with what I could find:



The food...

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with Pita Chips:


Garlic and Olive Oil CousCous:


Honey Chicken Kabobs

The recipe I used for the kabobs ( http://joelens.blogspot.com/2011/08/...en-kabobs.html) turned out delicious!!!

Abu's Caramel Monkey Bread:


Craft Time (I did not even try to get anyone to look at the camera and smile...remember we had sick children):


And the finished product (DH and I made Magic Carpets, too ):


Our next movie night theme with be.......

Wrapping out last movie nights before we leave Friday


This isn't Disney, but since we are "going to the dark side" this trip, we did a Harry Potter night

Table setting


Menu and activity sheet


Minnie always holds the movie, and she was okay with holding HP


Some 2 liter covers I found at a party store. My original plan was butter beer but I couldn't find the required butter extract anywhere


Wizard hat cupcakes


Magic wand (pretzels)


Our "slytherin sandwich". He got a little fatter than I intended


The kids pride and joy "troll bogies" AKA tapioca pudding


Making "potions". I found fizzy drink mixes and they were mixed in the "cauldron" with club soda




My favorite part of the night was the "Bertie Bott Every Flavor Bean experiment". I had the box, so I pulled 3 of one kind out and made DH, DD and DS try to guess the flavor. It was all fun and games until they came across soap, earthworm and vomit flavored ones.

Can you tell me how you made the Slytherin sandwich? We're going to do our HP night at the end of the month.

It's just pizza dough in a tube (Pillsbury) I used one tube for the bottom, layered it with pepperoni and mozzarella, then unrolled another can of dough on top of it, then shaped it like a snake. Egg whites with green food coloring made the green color.

Eyes are grapes (supposed to be olives but we didn't have any) and tongue is a pepperoni cut into a forked shape. I gave them tomato sauce to dip their slices in.

I had planned an entire movie night around Dr Seuss (also for our Universal/IOA trip) but we ended up having a very full schedule last weekend and I condensed it to just the food and table setting. We haven't even been able to watch the movies yet (Cat in the Hat, Whorton Hears a Who) and we were going to make "Thing One and Thing Two cupcakes" I found on Pinterest but ran out of time.

My crappy version of of green eggs and ham

Thanks for the link.
