Thank you! They had a great time helping in the kitchen.
I'm hoping to do this movie tomorrow night! Didn't think of making paper tissue flowers - thanks for the idea!
Summer Movie Afternoon
June 29, 2011
Boo is missing because he is away at Boy Scout camp for the week
Today is my birthday, so I told the kids I wanted to celebrate with my favorite Disney movie
the Little Mermaid! I am not sure why Ariel is my favorite princess, she just is! I love the characters in this movie
Sebastian is a riot and Skuttle (why are Disney sea gulls so dang annoying?).
Sebastian Sandwiches, Clam Shell Chips, & Ocean Water
(Filled with tunafish, it would not be right to use Flounder)
Sand Dollar Cookies & Beach Cups
Smashing the vanilla wafers to make sand for our sand cups
Making our sand dollar cookies
Painted sea animals to make into magnets to hang on the refrigerator
Goo looks so serious and deep in thought
Mine is the seahorse
momabaarjo - love your Little Mermaid night!! Cute food ideas...I might have to steal some. I bought the same magnet set for a Little Mermaid night for us
Wow, what awesome awesome nights everybody!!
I will be working on updating the index over the next week or two - I've gotten a tad bit behind
Last Tuesday we had another Disney Day which was supposed to be 3 Caballeros. However, I didn't realize that we only have it on VHS, so the movie got switched to Saludos Amigos at the last moment.
DD and DS were quite excited that Mickey left a Donald figure to play, ¿Dónde está Donald?
Next, we did the first part of our maraca craft. I think I found this on Family Fun, oh no wait thats not right. Directions here
Next, we made tissue paper flowers. DD really enjoyed this activity as she had learned how to make paper fans at school, and we now have an abundance of fans in nearly every room of the house, my car, exDHs car, etc. DSs attention span lasted one tissue paper flower until he declared it, for girls.
DD and DS helped set the table with some plates we picked up at the $ Store, and then went off to play while I cooked dinner. I accented the table display with some of Nonnas collection of statues from the Mexico pavilion.
Our menu consisted of: mocktail lime margaritas, Don Donalds Mexican Dip, Panchitos Chicken Fajitas, Arroz de Jose Carioca, and Fiesta Black Beans.
DD and DS enjoyed trying the fake margarita, but declared it too sweet for their taste, and exchanged them for waters.
We did Lady & the Tramp II:Scamp's Adventure tonight for the 4th of July. It was our 2nd movie night and the kids had a blast!! They love Scamp!!
Our menu was, Scamp's Stolen Chicken (bbq chicken), Angel's Mini-Burgers, Junkyard Fruit Salad, Dog Collar chips, corn on the cob. Dessert was strawberry shortcake and ice cream.
DS and DD coloring dog's we made.
The dinner table.
The finished craft, the dogs
Coloring pages DH found online
Awesome thread. Can't wait to do these at our house!
I've lurked this thread for years now. Just wanted to say how talented all you ladies are! No children in our house yet but, I will be borrowing ideas for when I visit my best friend and her 2 little princesses.
Welcome former lurker - it's fun to post once you start!!!
We've been having movie nights for awhile now but I've only posted maybe one on here. So I thought I'd start sharing them, even if we don't always have a chance to go all out like I like to! For example, we went to see Cars 2 Saturday night and decided to go ahead and make it a movie night! We only got the movie schedule a few days ahead of time (we live in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and we get the weekly movie schedule for our outdoor theater - which means only one or two movies each night - a few days before the upcoming week usually) so I didn't plan anything special for dinner. And we are moving in a week back to the states so we didn't have a lot! But I did do a few things to have a fun night!
I printed out the Cars 2 playset from the Disney Family website.
I also printed out some coloring pages for DD to color.
I also got some butcher paper from a friend, trimmed it to the size of our sun shade, and colored some eyes on it. We put it up before the movie and DD thought it was the coolest thing!
We put DD in her pj's because, since the movie wouldn't be over until around 10pm, we were sure she'd fall asleep. She didn't, but at least she was comfy! It was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to being able to start back up with our movie nights after we settle into our new place!
This is one of the cutest ideas I have seen!
Awwww, gee. Thank you!
Summer Movie Day Double Feature
Peter Pan & Tinkerbell
July 7, 2011
For those not following in my trip report, my children and I spent the week following the 4th of July at our cabin in the mountains. We planned movie days for each day of our stay (getting in a lot because daddy at home is grumpy and does not get into the fun)...3 of the kids' cousins stayed with us for the week...we call them the 3 K Cousins!
All the girls love Tinkerbell. I remember when Ab was about 4
Tink was her favorite and boy did she have the same attitude as Tink (in fact she still has it). Of course 10 years ago and Tink was not popular as she is now. We had to hunt and search for Tink items, now everywhere I turn around there is something with Tink on it. I think she still loves Tink
her room is Pea Pod Green with lavender bedding. I remember when Return to Neverland came out when she was around 5. She could not wait to see the movie
in fact the first and only time I have ever lost her was when we went to see this movie. She was so excited that while we were standing in line to get some movie snacks she decided to head off to the movie without us! I have never been so scared in all my life
thank goodness a nice lady found her wandering into different theaters looking for the movie. I really enjoyed this movie, especially with the great lesson it teaches
love who you are because you are special are created for a special purpose. I cant wait to find the fairies in Pixie Hollow
If Tink was Abs favorite when she was little, Captain Hook was Boos favorite. Why on earth would a little boy gravitate to the villain? If I thought finding Tink stuff was hard then, it was even harder finding Captain Hook items. We are going to have to hunt down Captain Hook and get his autograph, along with a picture taken with Boo. We did not watch the Disney verision of Peter Pan, instead I rented the Universal live action one
not too impressed but it served the purpose of a Peter Pan movie day. The cousins were supposed to bring the movie, but they forgot and the only movie house close enough to us just had the Universal verision. Same story line, but a little too grown up and serious for us. I wish we could have found Hook instead with Robin Williams, Julia Roberts, and Dustin Hoffman. I remember that one as being pretty funny.
Pirate Ship Pizza
(Each of the kids made their own sails to sail their ship)
(Raspberry Lemonade, Lime Shebert with Pixie Dust
Cannon Ball Salad
(Melon Balls and Grapes)
Crocodile Crunch with Dip
Peter Pan Swords or Tinkerbell Wands
see movie title picture above)
Peter Pan Hats & Pirate Bandanas
I found a really simple foldable pirate hat pattern and had the kids follow the directions and fold themselves hats. Then in Family Fun magazine I came across a pirate headband pattern and they made some of these just for fun.
Boo is looking a little grumpy!
I found some make your own pirate treasure chests from Oriental Trading made of heavy hardboard. All the kids had to do was fold them and then decorate them. They spent much of the afternoon coloring, glittering, and adding jewels to them. Then I filled them with treasure (Pixie sticks
get it, Pirate Gum Coins, and Hershey Treasure Chocolates)
next I hid them
.and made a
Using clues that would take the kids around the mountain side to places they love to play at. Each clue would lead to another one until finally the last clue would lead to their treasure chests full of treasure to enjoy!
I gave Boo the camera, to record the fun!
Ab finds a clue hidden behind the log bench on the cousins grandparents cabin front porch.
A place to make wishes
wishing well at the cousins cabin.
A place where both of your daddy's soared to new heights.
Ab finds her treasure chest hidden in the trees where the pine trees are told to shhhh

called the Whispering Pine Lodge)
Summer Movie Afternoon
Lilo & Stitch
July 5, 2011
We decided since the 3 K cousins were going to spend the week, what better way than to begin with Lilo & Stitch since ohana means family and Lilo & Stitch is all about family! The kids enjoyed it so much we went and rented Lilo & Stitch 2 later that day and watched it after dark!
Thank goodness for Dollar Tree! They make it so easy to go out for a Hawaiian themed party! The kids had a great time getting prepared for the evening from making all the food, to the craft activities, and to even trying to hula!
It would have been easier just to buy hula skirts...but not nearly as much fun! We made hula skirts out of crete paper streamers, a stapler, and a piece of heavy string. I think they turned out great and the kids had a lot of fun making them.
I found another great little craft kit from Oriental Trading to make sea shell braclets to go with the hula skirts and leis! I think the kids loved these the most of everything we did all week! In fact, they are still wearing the braclets.
The girls decided to give us an impromptu hula show!
Pulled Pork Sandwiches on Hawaiian Buns
The kids loved these! In fact, the ate them all week long for lunch! It was an easy crockpot packet for the pork and prepackaged Hawaiian rolls!
Pineapple Brocolli Slaw
A twist on plain cole slaw. I used brocolli slaw, pineapple, raisins, mayo, sugar and pineapple juice.
Fresh Pineapple Spears
Hawaiian Kettle Chips & Corn on the Cob
We found these chips at World Market...perfect!
See the table picture...the kids loved them in their coconut cups!
Sunshine Aloha Cake
I found this great recipe on the internet...full of oranges, pineapple and coconut! I let Kortni make the cake, and she had so much fun and felt so grown up!
Summer Movie Afternoon
July 6, 2011
I just really dont care to much for this movie
but we sure had fun all day with the movie day.
Since Russell was working on his merit badge we decided that we would write the requirements to a merit badge, perform the requirements, and design our own merit badge

Requirements (and pictures of us performing):
1. Find a Walking Stick
2. Take a hike to the back meadow
3. Find 5 animals
4. Find a unique rock
5. Swing high on the tree swing
6. Find a flower
7. Cross the cattle guard
8. Dam the stream
9. Pick Up Trash
10. Find a pinecone
Hog dogs, chips, baked beans, & grape soda
Since we were under a complete burn ban (all outdoor fires, grills and indoor fireplaces) we had to improvise a hot dog and marshmallow roast
how about over the hot plate on the stove?
Here is our latest movie night: Aladdin.
Abu (made his vest from purple felt and his hat from a plastic cup)
Genie's Lamp (spray painted a plastic teapot)
Jasmin, Aladdin & Magic Carpet

Magic Carpet Craft (Disney craft site)
I don't have any children, but you can bet me and my boyfriend will be using some of these ideas for our didn't countdown nights! Hehe
Summer Movie Day
Poohs Huffalump Movie & Piglets Big Movie
July 8, 2011
Poohs Puffed French Toast (recipe from Crystal Palace)
Little Piglets (sausage links)
Owls Eggs (scrambled eggs)
Tigger Juice (orange Julius)
Kangas Pockets Filled with Pooh-nut Butter & Honey (Pita Pockets filled with peanut butter and honey)
Rabbits Fruit Salad from his garden
Tigger Tails (cheetos)
Eyeores Cloudy Day Drink (grape soda)
Make Honey Bee Treats
I found this recipe/activity on Family Funs website under Pooh activities. It is like a no bake cookies using rice krispes, peanut butter and honey. You mold the dough into bee shapes, make bees body lines from tubed frosting and then add using either sliced almonds or large marshmallows (cut into 4ths) for wings. Pretty fun to make (pretty messy too) and really yummy to eat!
