Our Pirates of the Caribbean night

We had Cannonball Pasta, There be Treasure in this Salad, Sail the Seven Seas Dessert, Hide the Rum-less Rum. We all colored pirate pictures, took a pirate quiz, picked our pirate names and went on a treasure hunt where they followed clues until they reached their treasure boxes. It was a really fun night.

Oooh, I'm sorry I didn't save it (the scare report). Never thought about it or had anyone ask to use something of mine. I'm not very computer savvy, so I don't usually make stuff like that. The name badges I found online. Sorry

Star Wars

Dinner & a Movie Night
Star Wars
August 28, 2011






I remember going to see this movie when it came out. I was just about 9 years old...you do the math. We went with the neighbors across the alley from us. It was such cutting edge technology then, and watching it again after MANY years it seems so hockey and silly....but I remember being in total awe when I was younger. The sound track is still one of my favorites. I never really watched any of the other movies, caught pieces of them here and there but sci-fi really isn't my genre. My favorite character has to be CP3O...I think I relate to his personality the most. Young Harrison Ford still does something to this girl's heart...in fact I think he aged to be even better looking.


Activities:

Transporters







Goo and Boo (with Ab's help) made transporters that I found on familyfun.com
Boo hated making these...he got so frustrated and wanted to quit so many times...they are hard to make


Lightsabers & Jedi Training Videos





Then the boys and I made lightsabers and watched some youtube videos of the Jedi training program at DHS....guess what Goo wants to do now. So I am going to have to research more into this! The boys took their lightsabers outside and preceded to whack each other...the one time they complained I told them to they had 2 choices...1. Me taking the sabers away or 2. Me going back into the house and ignoring them...guess which they decided was best.


Wookie-Ookie Cookies



Boo wanted to be the chef tonight, so he made Wookie-Ookies (Wookie Cookies). I found this cookie recipe online. It is from the Star Wars Christmas Cookbook. They are so yummy.

Dinner:

Millennium Falcon Wiring with Asteroid Meatballs & Mastafar Lava Sauce
Jumbo Malasrtian Croutons (from Dex's Diner)




Interstellar Salad with Blue Milk Dressing



Yoda Sundaes




Wookie-Ookie Cookies

I'm so glad I found this thread! DS (3) and I are dying to go back but won't be able to afford it until Jan 2013. I really needed something to hold me over until then

So far we've had a Lilo & Stitch party and a Dinosaur party. I was hesitant on how much my 3 year old would really be excited about having these evenings, but he really seems to be enjoying them! This weekend I let him pick the color of juice that dinosaurs drink and he really got into it He drank his dinosaur juice all weekend

Our parties are little low-key compared to some of the others but we enjoy the family time . We've been using the suggested menus here and have been eating REALLY well these past two Saturdays

Coming up this weekend, Pinocchio! Now I've got to look up what everyone is serving for this movie.

Have fun everyone!

**Oh and I'm DYING to try the Cheddar Cheese soup with pretzels, I love that idea! Unfortunately, it's going to have to wait a couple more months, I just can't eat soup in over 100 degree weather

We had our "Yogi Bear" night last night and go figure, the next movie DD drew out of the magic envelope is "Shrek". Oh man! Hopefully I will be back over here eventually- most of the movies in there are Disney and we keep getting the few non-Disney ones!

I have Shrek planned for sometime in December...I am not sure why! Think green and gross and you should come up with lots of fun ideas.

Don't worry about the movies being non-disney...I am doing ones that go with Universal Studios and posting those ideas! I personally like to see any family movie nights posted...gives me ideas for my own plus it is great to see families spending some time together!

I think this is my favorite thread on the Dis We did a Nemo night on Sunday. We watched the movie in the afternoon. We painted fish shaped magnets and painted coloring pages.
For dinner we had octopus hot dogs, sea shell pasta shaped mac n cheese w/goldfish and blue ocean water to drink.
The kids had a blast!!
Here's DS playing while the movie is on.


DS, DD and DH painting magnets and pictures.


DS and DD at dinner!

Our latest movie theme day/night was Pinocchio!



Not alot of toys for this one so I went to the computer for help with some printouts for decor!

So we started the day off with the movie, even though we've seen this one fairly recently, it was still fun to watch! For movies snacks we had Monstro the whale crackers, Jiminy chocholate covered crickets and Pinocchio nose pretzel sticks! During the movie the kids did their usual coloring pages.








Between the movie and dinner the kids cut out some Pinocchio puppets which I tied string to and they did an activity page.





Dinner was what else, stromboli! This was a HUGE hit with the kids, they absolutely loved it, my oldest DS 16, raved about it so I took that as quite a compliment I also made angel hair pasta with sauce just in case the stromboli was a bomb, lol.




Our centerpiece, my Jim Shore figurine







Dessert was a very last minute decision, I was having a hard time coming up with something and the kids said they wanted cupcakes so I used what I had and made Figaro and Cleo in a fishbowl cupcakes.



After dinner we made a wish upon a star and the kids put on a puppet show!

Yesterday we did Shrek night!

The menu:


(That's green goo, not go- I always forget that my frame is smaller than the paper!)

Playing pin the tail on Donkey:



The kids made gingerbread men:



The food- ogre oranges, Puss in Boots (green) beans, Fiona's fish sticks with green goo (green tartar sauce), and Donkey Ditalini (green spinach noodles). They also drank swamp juice (Sprite with gummy fish and worms in it) and we had Shrek Shakes for dessert (green Shamrock shakes):



And we pulled from the Magic Envelope for next week's- finally, another Disney movie!
