Any ideas?
You could bake cupcakes & ice them in dark blue with white dots (the night sky with stars) & arrange them in the shape of the "piece of sky" that started the movie. And don't forget some kind of soda pop. If you get really brave or if it's nice weather outside, have a couple extra soda pops to shake up & show that soda really does fizz & spew like Chicken Little made it.

For a craft, you could glue some yarn to one side of a small ball & wrap it so it sticks up on the other end. Unravel & brush the yarn on the end, stick 3 googlie eyes & maybe some pipe cleaner legs. Each crafter has his/her very own alien!

Play a game of dodge ball. Do some karaoke with some 80's songs. Have some glow-sticks available for decorations & to play with. You can get them cheap at the $Tree. Might even be fun to read the original version of Chicken Little before or after the movie.

So we've finally gotten back to our theme nights! December was so busy that we only got 1 in and that was in the beginning of the month.

Our movie tonight was Mulan, quite an easy movie to do dinner for. I made orange chicken, sweet and sour chicken, dumplings and white rice. It was a blast watching the kids try to eat with the chopsticks! For dessert we had fortune cookies and panda cupcakes. We had won an asian themed basket in a raffle at the kids school winter fair so we had a few cute things for decorations and we were joined by Mulan and Li Shang! For a craft we made Chinese lanterns and did some Mulan coloring pages. It was a fun and pretty easy night to arrange, next up is Finding Nemo/The Little Mermaid!
