I printed out coloring pages from Disney Family Fun for Tangled and the kids had a blast. As for snacks, you can go with pub type snacks, i.e. goldfish, pretzels, etc.

Have fun!

They sound like my kids...My DD told me that she was excited because her b.day 2 years from now will fall on a movie night (Sunday). Two years from now?! I think they are missing the countdown to the trip aspect of the movie nights.

A Bug's Life Movie Night

Our latest movie was A Bug's Life.




Instead of a regular dinner, this time I did lots of snacks.


Rosie's Black Widows (peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate, made legs using melted chocolate then drew them onto wax paper)


P.T.'s Fleas (sunflower seeds)


Francis' Ladybugs (Ritz crackers, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, beef sticks)


Hopper & Molt's Grasshopper Legs (french fries)


Flik's Grain (caramel corn)


Tuck & Rolls' Dirt Cups (crushed oreos, chocolate pudding, gummy bugs)


Dim's Beetles (BBQ meatballs)


Heimlich's Caterpillars (pickles, cream cheese, ham)


Dot's Bug Juice (cherry 7-Up)


Atta's Ants On A Log (Peanut Butter, celery, raisins)


Slim's Walking Sticks (pretzel rods)


After watching the movie and eating we started on crafts.

Flik & Atta Craft




Grasshopper Craft


Heimlich Craft




Then the kids went on a bug hunt.




Then we played/read a Bug's Life book that was find the differences in each picture.


Finally we put together a bug puzzle.


It was a fun night and a really cute movie enjoyed by the whole family. Next movie night will probably be Aladdin.

Toy Story Three Night!!!

Tonight was our first Disney Movie Night!!!! It was nothing fancy, as we had just moved into a new house two weeks ago but it was still alot of fun and the kids enjoyed themselves immensely. While waiting for my sister to drop the kids off, I decorated a little by using sticky post its to make pictures of the galaxy and a banner that said "Welcome to Pizza Planet!" I also made some of Lottso's fruit salad with octopus hot dogs for the kids to snack on when they came in.













Again it was nothing fancy but the kids thought they were really at Pizza Planet from the movie. The first surprise to the kids was that two of their favorite playmates were invited and then we got busy coloring some Toy Story 3 coloring pages I got from the Disney family fun site.









After coloring, the kids made some yummy planet pizza and super galactic chocolate cupcakes. Along with the pizza I made T-rex chicken and woody's mac n cheese. The kids had some Lottso's strawberry soda with dinner. After we made the food, the kids played outside with some light up bubble blowers pretending that they were space rangers chasing bad guys. Only, all of them wanted to be bad guys! While they were outside, I was inside hiding the toy story figurines I printed off for our scavenger hunt. There was some tears from the smaller set due to lack of finding the figurines but that was quickly fixed when they realized they would all get a prize.











The Bad Guys




After all that fun, we finally ate dinner and dessert was make your own cupcake, like at Disney. The kids absolutely loved this part of our night. After eating, we watched the movie.



The kids really enjoyed this night and I did as well. I am already looking forward to our lilo and stitch luau night and am planning on doing a movie night every other week until our trip.

Lady & the Tramp

We are counting down our trip with surprise Disney Days that include a themed day and movie. We had our first this past Tuesday and it was 'Lady & the Tramp'

Tinkerbell delivered a special postcard from Mickey declaring it 'Disney Day'


Activities included L&T coloring pages I found via Google and playing "Doggie Doggie, where's my bone?"

Lunch: hot dogs


Later in the afternoon, DD and DS helped me make cupcakes and meatballs






Menu and Table set-up




I served dessert while we watched the movie. I googled spaghetti cupcakes and found some pictures. I have been told that the recipe for these can be found in a book, "Hello Cupcake"

I used buttercream icing, raspberry preserves (as the sauce), Ferraro Rocher chocolates for the meatballs, and grated white chocolate for the parmesean cheese.

My guess is Cars. Thank you for the congrats on the new house. I was worried about posting the pics since we have not fully unpacked and my phone camera does not do justice to the pics.

Oh I love seeing these! Love the make your own pizza; I need to do that for our Toy Story night. I've slacked, but looking at the new posts has renewed my interest in Family Fun Night. That and the fact that we go to Disneyland in 8 or 9 weeks!!! I think we will do Cars soon, before we see the new movie.

Oh yeah, the spaghetti cupcakes are great! I made a spaghetti and meatballs cake for my mom's birthday last year, along with real spaghetti and meatballs. Both were prepared in a foil oven pan and placed on the table at the same time. It was so much fun! We used Cocoa Krispies to make Rice Krispie treats for the meatballs.

Cars

Dinner & a Movie Night:
CARS
June 18, 2011




Goo is so excited for June 24, a date we have had marked on our calendar since the beginning of 2011…the day CARS 2 is released. He proudly calls himself Lightning McQueen’s #1 Fan. I must admit when this movie came out, we did not go see it (of course that was preGoo). I am not sure why, we just had no real big interest in it at the time, which is weird because we had Boo and dh is a big classic car type of guy and we live 9 blocks away from the iconic Route 66. We have made up not seeing the move when it came out, however!!!! Goo is currently on DVD number 3! We spend a lot of time traveling back and forth to Colorado to see my family as well as countless trips to our cabin in New Mexico…a couple of summers ago that was the only movie that Goo would watch…by the end of that summer we could all recite the entire movie along with the characters!

This was a fun movie night to do! I could actually decorate like everyone else because I think Goo has every CARS toy ever made! With Ab and Boo, I really did not get into any cartoonish characters… I just don’t like clothes with characters on them…I know you think I am crazy! Things changed with CARS…but only CARS (and a few Tink things when Ab was little).

Menu:

Grilled Lightyear Tires (hamburgers) & Casa De La Tire Special (onion rings stacked)



Mater Dip Sticks with Rustees Bumper Ointment (Veggies & Dip)



Fillmore’s V8 Organic Oil (V8 V fusion)



Lightning McQueen & Mater Cupcakes





Asphalt Sundaes (vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, and crushed Oreos)



Activities:

Played Mater Tall Tales & Mater Nationals on the Wii



Made Cars Pixos (Found this kit on Wal-Mart clearance for $2.50)



Balloon Car Races
