A couple of weekends ago Flynn really wanted me to take him to see Peter Rabbit at the movie theater. But, there was a fantastic art festival happening that same day, so I took the kids to that instead. Instead, I surprised him with a fun Peter Rabbit family movie afternoon this week after school. We ended up watching the movie three times in a row. He would have watched it a fourth time, but I reminded him that it was a school night and he had to get to bed.

Peter Rabbit party and movie night

To set up a themed movie night doesn’t take a lot of time or effort, it’s all in the little details which I’ll show you below.

Bunny tail drink stirrers

My kids love chocolate milk as a treat. I don’t buy it often, but for a fun movie night, I thought it would be perfect. I wanted to dress it up a little though. Anyone can pour chocolate milk into a glass, but I added these adorable bunny tail stirrers to ours and put the milk in small milk bottles.

That makes our chocolate milk from the carton look so much more fun and themed perfectly with our movie night. The bunny tail stirrers only take a few minutes to make, all you need are wood skewers, craft pom-poms, ribbon, and hot glue.

I added the navy blue and white striped paper straws too to match Peter Rabbit’s coat.

Quick and easy movie night meal

Next, I customized Kid Cuisine All Star Chicken Breast Nugget Meals by adding icing ‘carrots’ to the chocolate pudding. The kids loved this. I also added a small tub filled with ketchup that was perfect for dipping.

The last thing was to create a themed popcorn snack mix, because you cannot have a movie night without popcorn.

Bunny snack mix ingredients

In this mix, I used Orville Redenbacher’s Kettle Korn  – the only leading brand of microwave popcorn with no artificial preservatives, flavors, or dyes in any of its products.

  • Popcorn or kettlecorn
  • Mini marshmallows (cottontails)
  • Chocolate rocks
  • Annie’s Bunny Grahams
  • M&M’s
  • Pretzel sticks

  • Carrot sticks
  • Matcha Pocky sticks

Fresh carrots make a great addition to the table. If serving to eat, make sure you wash them thoroughly. Alternatively you can use them as decorations but cut a few into carrot sticks for the table.
