Anyone have any other ideas for theme nights?

Even if you don't have activities or food ideas, what theme night do you want to see created that we don't already have?

James And The Giant Peach

Movie - James and the Giant Peach

Menu - New York style pizza
James' Baked Peaches
Canned peach halves, drained
Brown sugar
Butter
Vanilla Ice Cream
Place drained peach halves in a baking dish, scoop side up. Place a spoonful of brown sugar in each peach and dot with butter. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Activities - Try the James and the Giant Peach trivia game online!
http://www.roalddahlfans.com/games/quiz.php?quizID=14
Minibeast Memory (James' insect friends are known as minibeasts in the book. Using cardstock, cut out a stack of equilateral squares. Have your children draw two of each of the minibeasts for a memory game.
Create a Guide to Insects (you can use your computer, your encyclopedias, whatever you wish. Make a page for each of the creatures James comes into contact with and research about each one. Don't forget a photo or drawing, and leave space at the bottom of the page for a bug scientist log. Your little ones can go on a bug hunt and observe the critters up close and jot down their thoughts!

I honor of the holiday I'm making cornbeef and cabbage with potatoes and carrots tonight for dinner and renting Darby O'Gill and the Little People.

We may go hunting for leprecauns later. (I'll hide some chocolate gold coins for the kids to find. - oops, guess we just missed him, but lucky us he dropped some gold!!!! )

We are going to WDW at the end of May. My best friend and her family will be going as well. Since we all have so much going on within our families (soccer, gymnastics, etc.) we have a hard time getting together to plan. So, we decided to have once a month "Disney dinner parties" so all of the kids could play and watch Disney movies to get excited about the trip and we could sit down and do the serious planning. Last month we finalized our last ADR's and discussed which parks we'd be doing on what days. Since we'll all be staying at Pop, I made buttermilk fried chicken (got the recipe off of allears.net and it was wonderful), mashed potatoes and green beans. She's hosting the next one this weekend and is going to make Sci-Fi chili. We don't really have a theme other than making Disney food, but we all have a great time getting together and making plans, and it does build excitement. The last dinner party will be 2 days before we leave, I know we'll all be excited for that one!

My kids would LOVE this one! Chinese food is one of their FAVORITES! I will have to try this one.

There are lots of good ideas on here....but I can't go all out or my DH will think I'm nuts (which I am....LOL)!!!!

jacobsmom, LOVE your Enchanted ideas! Today at work I was thinking, we've got to get an Enchanted night out now the movie has been released! Great job!

walkerag, I wish I could find similar-minded families around here to have planning parties with, they sound like so much fun.

I will post these to the index right away! Keep the great ideas rolling!

What about setting up a tent and camping out over night indiana Jones style after the movie ?

You could also form some sort of Scavenger Hunt even if it was just around the house and everyone wears khaki.

We celebrated Animal Kingdom's tenth birthday yesterday. The real birthday is the 22nd of this month. We did a safari for Brooklynn with new Viewmaster safari binoculars, and then we ate at Pizzafari!







She was too excited about the "fari" to stop and let us put a bow in her hair, thus the long bangs.





We didn't go elaborate, because we're saving our money for the real trip, but it was still fun.
