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. So, I surprised him with a fun Peter Rabbit family movie afternoon earlier this week after school. He then watched 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.
To set up a fun 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.
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.
Attach the pom-poms to the skewer with hot glue, and then tie a little piece of ribbon underneath. Done!
I added the fun navy blue straws too to match Peter Rabbit’s coat.
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.
Kid Cuisine serves up kids’ all-time favorites, many with full servings of vegetables. With these easy meals, you know you’re choosing dishes that will satisfy your kids.
The last thing was to create a fun, themed popcorn mix, because you cannot have a movie night without popcorn.
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. Then, I added fun themed candy and snacks that were perfect for a Peter Rabbit themed movie including cotton tail ‘marshmallows’.
I couldn’t resist adding some carrots and a few other snacks too. And thank goodness I did, because Flynn sat through the movie three times in a row.
